Today I was flying my Dji Spark on holiday here in the Maldives and little over 30s into the flight the drone lost gps control and flew off with the wind. I quickly received a compass and magnetic interference error. I then had to battle with the wind to get it back to land. I was wondering if anyone could have a look at the data logs for me to see what went wrong?

Many thanks

Would also be helpful if you could lets us know where you took off from and if you calibrated compass prior to flight.

117 km/h horizontal speed?
Must be a strong wind.
I assume, without proper GPS signal there is no real speed reading.
But where are the 117 km/h coming from?

I will try to upload the flight logs as soon as possible. The drone claims to have reached at top speed of 157.4 km/h (see pic). I did not calibrate the compass prior to the flight but I did the day before.

you're the new record holder for top speed..  157.4KM/H  that's 97.5MPH  LOL!  i only managed 72.5 MPH, that's some crazy wind...good job on not  crashing the spark into the ground or anything..

Thanks for the responses. Sadly as I am away I cannot access the flight logs through iTunes. I have contacted DJI support via email but they are yet to get back to me.
