i was and am wondering whether the find my drone app point that it shows. im wondering whether its the actual real point where the drone is located or whether its the last place where the drone had signal with the remote/phone, so in reality it much further away than it shows on the map. i have sent the fly log, please analyze it and tell me if its where the drone is, or it was the last connection place and the drone is not where it shows it is.

With the FlightLog Info you can easily see if it went into ATTI Mode.

If it went in ATTI Mode it could have drifted with the wind current as it won't hold GPS Positioning.

Do you have the 'Last Video' from the Phones Cache to see it Crash ?



Send the Link here on the Forum and also a link to the Video Cache (Footage of the Flight) and I am sure people will help you.

You need to do this Step as right now we don't have any Information to Help you out.

Hi,

Even though there were GPS issues in the beggining, a home point was recorded. However when you initiated return to home, it still was flying away. I think it was either a GPS error or the wind was too much for the Spark to return.

I think flying over 200 m for the firs time was not helping either.

Based on the map the drone canvery well be on the top of a tree as well.

Good luck with DJI Support, I am sure they will get back to you tomorrow.

Sorry I can't do anything to help you find your nephew's lost drone, but I do have to ask, is that flight log accurate in showing you went up over 750 ft the first flight with his drone? With hight wind warnings? In a heavily wooded area with limited visibility?

it just got carried away by the wind  VERY SAD. its my nephews birthday and his present is lost in the woods. hes crying like crazy. not good, not good at all.

When there is High Winds never fly. Also at that Height Altitude the Wind Force will be far greater.

I suspect that your Drone was Fighting Wind, Depleted the Battery and AutoLanded at 10% without Connection to your Phone/Remote.

From 7mins onwards (It was over 1000ft Away Still) did you lose Signal Again ? As I cant see what happened in the log.

Your last Connection -

7m 11.5sGo Home20satellites756.2ftN/A7.9mph1,093.4ft24%10.805V3.611V3.61V3.584V0.027V

If you lost Connection it may have Autolanded as it is showing that last moment battery was at 24%. It hard to Speculate where it landed, you have to see Wind Direction and Search and Search. It could be a few meter to a hundred meters away. This is a Hard Situation.

I am Sorry for your loss, but remember that the Drones are not Toys, especially if the Pilot is Young and has No Experience. The Safety of Others is Important too, Thank God it you had no accident or hit somebody. It is very CLEAR that small kids cannot use Drones like these are they can be Dangerous.

If you need a Toy for your Nephew you will be better off with a $50 Drone from Ebay.

Yes. Exactly. That is the last record at 24% battery and then nothing. I dont know what happened. By that time we were in the area with the remote and find my drone app in hand looking for it. But no light. No sound. Nothing. I couldnt press the buttons for led light or signal drone as it said drone not connected. I was flying like the 5th day. Around 20 times already. So i had some experience. And yes i was at 200 meters. Because i have logs where i reached 500 meters no prob in the same spot. Couldnt any heigher. Although it says in the manual 3000 or 4000 meters top altitute but the prigram wouldnt let me go any higher.

Watching Youtube Videos of Guys going up over 500m is just Insane ! What where you Thinking ???

I am Sorry but you are A Danger ! Imagine you hit some Manned Aircraft at that Height over 1000ft !

Thats Very Irresponsible. It is useless Wasting time helping Guys who lose their Drone because they are Irresponsible.

You said it was your Nephews Drone ? So you where Flying it ? Now I understand why that Little Kid was Crying !

You can't admit you where Abusing the Law. So you wished to try going up over 8000ft ?

Imagine a Helicopter / Plane was passing in that Area. You are very IRRESPONSIBLE I told you !

Always check the speed when AC in RTH mode , when it is to low switch to sport mode and fly back manually.

In your Log it shows RTH, you must Cancel RTH (AUTOPILOT) to go in Sports Mode (MANUAL MODE).

AC means AIR CRAFT.

Watch here, as Jos A is telling you, Sports Mode is used in comparision with RTH, Sports Mode arrived before with Less Battery Consumption.
Especially in Stong Wind, RTH won't have enough Power to Return. Thats why everyone suggests NOT TO FLY in High Velocity Winds especially when the Wind Direction is against you for Returining to Home !

Oh ok thanks for clarifying. I hope dji support comes to understanding and sees that i did all that could to save the drone. I switched on RTH early but the wind was too strong and it got carried away. I really loved the drone so far. 500 mts top altitude and 370 mts top distance.

From the flight log it appears that after the RTH (Go Home) the distance (Home distance) continues to increase.
Instead of turning back, he starts off toward an unknown point.
Since he had been flying for the last time completely, more people would have to go out and look at everything on that line. There was enough energy on the battery to fly far away.

Why did not you break home and bring it home by hand?

If you have no practice why flying over a forest and why so far?

If you read the Comments you will understand that this Guy has 'ZERO' Experience.

I thought at first that his Nephew was Flying the Drone, then he told us it was himself.

But nothing changed. The possition is the following. I wanted to ask you. As far as i understood the drone is not where the point is in find my drone app. As it had plenty battery left 24 % and just got cut off. Thats weird. Anyway the drone is in 100 meters radius from the point on the mao. Right?

If there was a lot of Strong Wind, 24% Battery could have drifted the Drone at a Far Distance.

You got Disconnected at 24% so you cant see where it has landed.

Try to go back and check if you can find it.

Thats your only Hope now.

If you got disconnected at 24% how can you see where it landed ??

Next time attach to it a GPS Tracker / Locator like 'Marco Polo'.
