I recently upgraded from Mavic pro to Platinum, and I keep finding myself returning to home thinking I was low on battery. This internal clock needs to be reset because the Platinum seems to fly forever. On the best day of the year here in the Pacific northwest I decided to do a distance run with my new Mavic. With no modifications to controller or drone, flying into a 5mph wind, knowing I would have the wind at my back returning, and with the Marco Polo tracker on it's back I flew to 30,000 feet out. Yes 5.7 miles away with just starting to get signal loss at 60% battery. Of course I was warned by smart RTH about not having enough battery to return, but that was with 75% left so I cancelled it. So on return I was getting about the same performance out of the battery until about 24,000 feet out, it began dropping at the rate of 3% per 1000 feet, from the 1% per 1000 feet. The range anxiety began and took hold as my wife was asking what all the beeping was for as she had never heard the low battery warning before. I launched from a lake shore which is on a 1 mile wide lake with miles and miles of cow pasture in the direction I flew. Just on the other side of the lake is a dairy I know well and with 6% remaining in the tank I looked for a safe place and as the Mavic descended into pasture I lost signal behind a row of trees. I started packing up and my wife said wheres the drone? I pointed in the general direction and went to test the Marco Polo for the first time. It took 10 minutes to drive around the lake in which I called my uncle who works at the dairy for permission to enter. With proper clearance and my tracker receiver i found my drone within 10 minutes, safe and sound video intact. The video is interesting because as the drone descended the knee high grass apparently is not suitable for landing so at several feet the drone hovered and then the video cut out and I assume the drone fell into the grass flat and made a crop circle. So the moral is the drone is smarter than even what appears to be plenty of power to return. I can only surmise that the drone takes into consideration temperature and battery performance, or lack there of. Also the field was 100 acres, I will never fly without that tracker. Although I had phone service there is no wifi or data so most other trackers would be useless. Long story but if any of the information is helpful then it is well worth it to me. Oh, for the LOS crowd I have one word "hobbyist".
