Nope - going to have to pay for it.

Tbh I'm not a fan of the auto controls, as demonstrated to much to go wrong.
So long as you're mindful, you can pull off shots which otherwise would be *very* hard to achieve.

OH dear....

Any idea of costs?
Well I read somewhere that someone got charged 220 euros. I'm expecting it to be around that mark.

Ouch! I almost had the same disaster shooting a similar type of shot with my P3P, only thing that saved me was that I was constantly checking my displayed height and noticed the drop on the second rotation compared to the first, I am sure I would have suffered the same fate if I had not been monitoring it though.

Hope your repair costs are not too crazy or take too long.

Thanks for the infor. yes the mavic never stand at the same altitude as it always move up or down. so we all must be careful flying too low and stick with the same position. Thanks
