Does anyone have a list made up of what to do if...

A) Drone flys away..lost!

B) Drone crashes

Including what software to use or what settings in app...

I have started compiling a couple but thought I would check to see if others had done the same.
Always best to be prepared for when it goes wrong!

Lastly, what software do people use to interegate the dat files recovered from drone - view logs/navigation etc..??

Thanks all

I tested RTH today and was amazed with the enhanced landing feature just how close it got to where it took off!

My list for A case:
1. Play "Set me free" from my cell phone
2. Wave it goodbye

List for B case:
1. Probably attempt to fix it either myself or in some local repair shop for as cheap as possible.
2. Sell it (with disclosure it was crashed).
3. Get next new one.
I never fly crashed drones, unless they are designed for crashes (like racers ones). Safety first!!

On my first Mavic Air flight today it told me to calibrate the compass. Wise to do this on its first flight after being shipped across the world. Always check your RTH position on the map before flying.

Not that I'm a smart ass. But I read this and hence carry it out. Might of prevented your scenario
