Hi Today I was flying and suddenly is started to go crazy up down and sideways, then as I was going sideways at about 20 feet hight (it was close to me) it flipped and it the ground but just made it back in the air. I landed a checked but all was looking fine so I started again and all was fine excepte the image was a bit blury, so I cleaned the lense, changed the battery and back in the air, I was following a boat and the Mavic did it again but this time it the water and lost. It's very disappointing and I'm not sure I will by a new one and it's a shame because I liked it very much.
Anyone as an idea of what happened and how it can be prevented?
Thank you for you advices.

It sounds like you calibrated the compass and/or took off near a magnetic metal object. Is that possible?

No the calibration was fine and no metal objects in the area at all. I did, in the passed have a calibration issues but this time it was not the same feeling, the drone just went creasy like if it lost a propeller but I checked them all and the mountings where good.
 
Take a look at your TXT flight logs to see if they indicate what happened. You can upload and view them online here. Post a link back here after uploading them if you'd like people to comment on them.
