Please help and tell me how to get me files, so maybe someone can look at them.
 
and see if shows where drone might be?
According to the logs, the drone landed at your home point.

Here Google Earth view of your RTH location:

The second one I think is the the right one.

Yep - Google Earth view:

last reported height was 10m (32ft). Then the log stops.
Just search around last known location. The drone must be there somewhere if you flew it into ground..
 
Think I flew it into the ground.
That's what the flight data shows.
You were flying at full speed northwards in Sport Mode for some time at about 50 mph.
At 9:23.5 you also pulled the left stick back hard and descended from 160 ft to 34 ft when the data stops.
Google Earth indicates the end point is about 13 ft higher than your launch point and the land further north is higher still.
The drone would have lost contact because the higher ground blocked signal and speared in as it was traveling fast and also descending at about 24 ft/second.
The wreckage would be further north from where the data stops.
Look north of 40.20564 -83.20681

This shows where data stopped and the direction to search

No luck this morning with search and recover.
Weed are waist to armpit deep, going to keep trying, over 2000 miles on her, she deserves it.
 
I'm so dumb, I was getting way to comfortable with flying.
Need to find her, can't get it out of my head.

You might be lucky, the weeds could have reduced the impact and the damage. Best of luck finding it!

When I was getting to confident at the beginning I flew into a tree at full speed with OA off, got **** lucky because it only cracked the little landing leg.

Anyone else near you have a drone to fly a grid pattern? You can look for the bent Weeds. I have done a SAR using DroneDeploy to create an automated flight with video, then we sat in front of a big screen TV and reviewed the footage. Good Luck.
