It happened to me once, I couldnt cancel landing, but I still could pull up the drone, every time that I released the controller it went down, I looked for a safe place to land, a couple of meters away, strange but i still had the control... Have you tried to raise the drone ? Or control was totally out?

I was able to download the rar file.
The CSV inside, which the OP has provided, has only the GPS coordinates and the battery state in it. Not very useful.

Cheers,
Wolferl

You can only upload your DJI GO TXT flight log. See these instructions if you're not sure where to find that file.

Sorry to read that.
Did you look away from the screen for a prolonged amount of time?

Fly safe everyone.

Then I saw the screen with the X to cancel landing and thought O F#ck

I will have to source a 2 nd hand one
Could not bring myself to tell my wife I threw $859 Drone in the water
after all her cancer treatments
I don’t think would be easy to take

On the flight record video in the app I don’t see where I hit land
I’m sure I hit return to home
And when I heard the been beep sound I placed the controller in the back of the car so I could palm land to keep Spark off the sand
Lessons in life I suppose.

This has happened to me too - but only when the battery was very low!  I can't remember the actual amount, but let's say 5% or less.  It just wanted to land anytime I had the sticks at 0%.  I could still stop the landing if I tried to gain altitude and then could move horizontally to where I wanted to land.
Do you remember your battery levels?

Yes, the drone goes into auto landing at 10% or less battery.
You can still raise it up if you pull up on the left stick,
But when you release the stick, the drone lands again.

Fly safe ppl.
