An early evening flight that started ok........not flown for a while. Now the weather has picked up I better get out and practice more.
It could have been an expensive mistake as the farmer was not willing to stop work while I searched.
The locate your drone option didn't seem to help much. After a fruitless search, I resorted to analysing the cached footage to help locate my drone.....
How hard can that be? It's parked at the base of a sunflower



No damage, lessons learned.
The last clip was recorded after it was located.

Nice footage!  I was trying to do the same thing yesterday, but I lost the sunshine behind the clouds.

It went into a landing sequence (gimbal/camera resets). I wonder why. Loss of comms?

Very nice indeed. Looks like the drone got a soft landing. Lucky you could fly again without any problems.
