    Just watched this, how lucky was he! Pays not to ignore the return to home warning!

    That almost felt like a reenactment.

    why was it only going 9 m/s (20 mph) on the return to home? more efficient for battery?

    It was flying in a head wind.

    I've seen quite a few drone rescues and that one definitely had some "pucker factor" to it. I feel that he knew the terrain well enough to know that he could ditch it on the sand bar if necessary.

    That was nuts, Malcolm! I'm glad you got it back.

    He is a very bold perhaps over-confident flyer.
    There's another good one a week or two back following a trackway along a cliff face worth watching.

    That wasn't me, it's just a video I'd seen on YouTube.

    funny.... "oh my why does it keep drifting on it's own" I'm sure it has nothing to do with it being in Atti mode -_-

    He knows about that, though I didn't understand why it was in ATTI on this occasion.
    Look at his other videos he's very experienced with it.
