there will be plenty of flyaways because a lot of the people that purchase these easy to fly prebuilt models with GPS are often the ones with little to no experience flying these kinds of models. So needless to say flyaways are gonna happen. I would say at least half if not more of the phantom flyaways are do to pilot error but they choose to blame the quad because they cant be wrong
I am not saying every flyaway is pilot error but a lot are and even if this is a great system there will be some people that don't know anything about rc and they will let the battery drain to low, forget to set up something, wont take precuations like failsafe on tx and many other reasons a flyaway will happen but that is to be expected because these are advanced machines and people with no experience will buy them so there will be a learning curve for those new people.
