Good morning Tim,
When I was experimenting with tap fly I was already at 300' and selected a target, I tapped "go" and my P4 took off toward the target.
I noticed it was descending, I was unsure of what it was doing or what the end result would be so I canceled it.
Yes! I had the same issue the first time I "TapFlew" The aircraft dropped from 92 ft, well above the trees/houses to 50 ft., but I didn't notice the drop. When I turned it around and flew back towards me it whacked a tree and fell. A couple of chips, prop damage, and a cleanly ripped out gimbal with a tiny piece of the wiring harness embedded in one of the props. Waiting for DJI to look it over and review the flight log.
Flight log shows no touching of the stick so I don't know why the elevation dropped.
P.S. I would love to get a good explanation of how TapFly is supposed to work!
