Some DJI Phantom Users are Experiencing Flyaways Resulting in Lost/Damaged Units and Cameras | News | Forum
The DJI Phantom is a very cool device. It's a quadcopter that can carry small GoPro cameras, which can result in some awesome shots. However, it's not a great experience for all users.
The Phantom ships as a ready-to-fly kit that includes the quadcopter, remote control, battery and charger. It offers 10-15…
After a few months of fun with the DJI Phantom I lost my Phantom last saturday. I upgraded the firmware, made the calibrations and it went for his first flight. After 2 minutes I went up by itselfs and went full speed forward. There wasn´t any control anymore and fails safe didn´t work. After a few minutes we couldn´t see the DJI anymore and it was gone included my Hero 3 black edition camera.
First flight went well, hooked up the arris cm2000 gimbal and flew a little heavy. Once I got it above the treetops, flew away on its own. Chased it as far as I could until I could no longer see it. All in $1350. Waiting to hear from neighbors as I put flyers though the whole neighborhood. Hoping someone will watch the video to see where it took off from. Wondering if it was worth it.
i just got my phantom after spending a bunch of time leaning on a syma training copter – probably 15 hours or so. i'm no expert, but i have the hang of it.
first session, second battery with phantom in a park with people and dogs walking around and i was having a great time. then, out of nowhere, full throttle and full right attitude at about 10' off the ground. it got hauling (really scary). switched off gps mode on the transmitter, tried everything with the sticks, nothing. fortunately, it piledrived itself into the ground a few times and the battery compartment opened and the battery shot out and disconnected (it was still full throttle when it inverted).
no one was hurt, but i was terrified by the experience. took it out again today and had no issues using 3 full batteries. have it on camera, so i'll upload it
it was near an apartment complex and people, so i can imagine 2.4 interference as a possible issue (what i've seen speculation about). what's odd is given all of the intelligence on the controller and that somehow interference could put it into full throttle/attitude and lock it there and still be throttled when inverted – especially after a crash.
the accelerometer could easily be used to detect a crash and power it down. i'd really like to understand how this is possible and plan to reach out to dji
I was on my second day of flying the Phantom, I was enjoying it very much. Then it happen. I took off and started to climb, soon I realize that the phantom was not responding to my control inputs. It seem to respond only to up and down, but it was drifting away from me . I was in the Jungle , so it drifted and then descended into the trees in the distance . I lose my gopro black and my Video transmitter . We search and search but never found it. .
never thought it would happen to me but it did on sept 11 2013 , took my eye off it for less than 15 sec and she was gone … lucky (I,m Hoping ) I did sharpie my cell phone number all over the props ( please call if Found) all I can do is hope someone comes across it and calls …. it really upsets you to not only lose
$1200 dollars but also , how much I enjoyed going to beaches etc and filming then return home to look at my videos …. I will buy another eventually had a gimbal on its way to me and some props , so I guess I will build the gimbal and balance the props in the mean time … it a horrible feeling to lose the phantom and the cash …. take care fellas Jim Bonito

Last two flights with Phanton was a disaster. Starts of well then a minute or two into flight it banks right and there is no input from radio. Crashed x2 with GoPro mounted. Broke the body and motor. Ordered new shell today. Will I regret this ?? Maybe I should look at another brand. I believe it has something to do with the low quality receiver (4 AA Batteries ) and no way of knowing how much charge you have left.
two days ago my dji phantom flow a way was in gps mode yellow lights was indicating the satellites were ok i was in open space , i was carefully but the dji was not responding to the control now y lost the gopro hero black and the others up grades , guys im too sad, i just hope dji company fix this problem and maybe i will buy another one ….
Altitude Mode, found all 7 satellites, you can switch between GPS mode and ATTI mode as you like.
