Re: All I wanted was a nice panoramic video of the sunrise....
Even though USB Record and Auto Record were both enabled, none of the video was recorded.
I got the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Somewhere in one of these forums, someone stated that if a video didn't show up on the usb stick, the operator should stick in back into the drone, make a brief recording of anything, then stop it. Once the video finished processing, the new and old video would appear on the stick. Whoever he was, he was apparently correct.
After my crash I tried to find my video but it was no where to be found. After I got my replacement drone, I made a few recordings; nothing important. Two days ago, I needed that particular usb stick for a different purpose. It had about 9 or 10 videos on it. Before deleting them, I decided to check them out. Lo and behold, my crash video was on there. It can be seen at:
In the video, I pan the horizon a few times, then as it begins to flip and fall, a bright white object can be seen in the sky. It's not seen in any of the earlier footage while I'm panning the horizon. What is that!!! Is it Jupiter? Venus? Is it a UFO? Did the Air Force shoot down my drone? Was it Al Qaida? I don't know. I'll leave that up to you Ufologist and conspiracy theorists.
But I have to admit, I did play it over and over trying to find out.
