That Time We Lost A Quadcopter

That Time We Lost A Quadcopter

Well, there was never really ONE time, there have been many. But this one, I can say honestly, was not my fault. We had the DJI Inspire up. It was an early demo model and we never really had great firmware for it. We were going to fly towards the windmills, but about 2 minutes into the flight, we lost control. I mean, literally. We could not see it, but it was still broadcasting a live feed with GPS. It took another half hour, but apparently, it went about 10 miles away and landed itself perfectly. One strange thing, however, it landed right beside by a dead cow… I assume the death of the cow was not related to the quadcopter, but I cannot be sure.
