Out in the back roads of the Osage territory in Northern Oklahoma, I stopped at an interesting spot and flew Phoebe the drone. When the battery was done, I decided to hop in the car and look for another interesting spot.

Found one about 1/2 an hour later but.... did not have the fly-more bag! I had left it behind, somewhere along a gravel road in the middle of nowhere. "Ok, where might I have been?"

Then I realized that GO4 would know where it last saw the drone, when I turned it off and returned to the car. Yep! "Find my Drone" drew me a nice road map and a green line from where I was to where the bag was. I went right to it.

But just if your landing point (switching of the bird!) was where the bag was.
So lucky you.
Which, in this case, you would also have found just with the flight record, methinks!

I knew where the landing point was. I flew it to my hand.

That's what I meant: You would have found it without the app
As soon you switch of the RC or the Bird, that is where the app is pointing at!

And it quite handily got me back to where I turned off the drone, a couple steps from where I left the bag.
