The worst one would have to be almost losing the drone at Murder Hole Beach in Co.Donegal. I had flown in from the roadside near Tra Na Rossan Bay and over the mountain into Murder Hole, just as I had the image in frame the drone started to spin 360 degrees and at a fast rate. At first I thought a gust of wind had caught it or had lost GPS, but everything looked ok on the screen. So here I was, hoovering over the ocean, still in a 360 spin and constant beeping coming from the controller. Something was seriously wrong here. I managed to work out that I could correct it and had some but little control. Imagine driving a car that wants to constantly go left but you want to go straight, you need to battle with the steering to keep the car in straight line, right? That’s how it felt. So now the plan was to get the drone back to the roadside without crashing or ditching in the ocean! Meanwhile while all this happening the battery level is dropping so I had to act quickly. The plan was to fly low and over land, I had picked out a rough route with my eye, if I did have to ditch, a hike is better than a swim! Safety was important too, there’s people walking on the beach so stay away from there. To cut a long story short I did manage to guide it back to area, still in a 360 spin and still battling. I couldn’t land it or hand catch it so a gentle ditch on the hill behind me and it was all over. I think the moral of the story is expect the unexpected, things do go wrong. It’s important not to panic, take in your surroundings and public safety is always first! I later found out that the rudder stick on the controller had developed a fault.
