Hi

the canopy is the worst enemy that our birds, it is best to remove it ASAP. It goes very well indoors, very protective, but the external becomes Quadcopter in a sail. Collect all the air and send it to where it want.

I learned the lesson at 2 minutes, was new. It was lifted by the wind and found two months later. only broken the battery.

indoors yes, outdoors better think 2 times.

Stand down wind

After too many similar experiences I now stay down wind. I don't like the wind in my face but the wind brings my bird back to me.

I was lucky and found it easyly in good condition, but very close to a pool of rain water.

So I guess the lesson of today must be, do some terrain orientation before flying in unknown places
I think it was a big scare!!!
I have a V303 and at a time when I lost control, fell just, over a little bucket of water. There was no damage because a second before, I shut down the engines. Now I understand why my drone is called "Seeker"... It seems that the drones like seek the water
