I got some jetskiing footage with the Spark over the weekend, and mixed it with some GoPro footage of the same.  Unfortunately later in the day I got the ATTI mode flyaway issue on a separate flight, and the Spark was destroyed so this is my last footage with the Spark.

It went into ATTI mode after having a strong GPS lock, and started flying away out of my control... nothing I did at the controls had any affect on it.  It smacked into a tree, smashing the sensors on the front and took out a few propellers, but after hitting the tree so hard it dropped about 30 feet into 2 feet deep of water.... luckily I saw where it dropped in the water and was able to recover it about 5 minutes later, but of course the water had ruined it by then, if the crash into the tree didn't do it.  I already sent it in on the DJI care refresh extended plan, hopefully I'll get the replacement soon as I was going to take it on a trip in a week and a half.   I'm pretty bummed as it wasn't even pilot error; it just went into ATTI berserk mode, but hopefully the Care Refresh takes care of it quickly.

I just started a case with DJI online and paid the $39 for the expedited replacement thru Care Refresh as I don't have the time this week to go thru a customer service call this week and wait for the warranty assessment... I really would like the replacement by my next trip (soon) so we'll see how quick the expedited Care Refresh is...

But it will be interesting to see if they have any assessment of the ATTI mode flyaway once they have the damaged drone from UPS.
