an it went nuts

As in flew itself, despite stick inputs ?

I would do updates, delete / reinstall app, and watch for anomalies at the home point before take off.
Make sure the drone orientation (red arrow) matches the direction on the ground before starting motors for take off (or auto take off).

If it doesn't match, move somewhere else nearby, trying to avoid any sort of metal (like concrete footpath rebar, underground pipes, etc).

If the aircraft / app asks for recalibration of any of the aircraft systems, do these as requested and see if that fixes the issue(s).

Hello from the Hoosier Heartland gethin.

Bummer about your flight. :confused:

Follow the instructions from this site and post a link back to here if you would like to share the flight log from the device you flew with.


The log will contain more information that may help in the diagnosis of the problem.

Good luck and welcome to the Forum. :cool:
