In all that he missed the obvious and most useful thing to do.
If he had checked the recorded flight data, he could have found the GPS location for the landing point.
That would have put him within just a couple of metres of where the drone landed.

He also didn't try resetting his homepoint to the location of the controller which would have simplified RTH.

Hindsight is a pain in the rear at times lol

I suppose that once it happens panic mode can set in, especially in the dark.

Had it been me in this situation, i would have also decreased the shutter speed to get a bit more light into the sensor, he was only at 1/60th so it would have certainly improved it some, he had the sense to up the ISO but didnt touch the shutter.

Thanks for sharing,

I would love to have seen just the volcano, that was a great sight,
I am surprised he took off with only half battery, but then i don't know how long ago his previous flight was.

If nothing else, hopefully it will help new fliers in what not to do.
