Hi, has anyone had issues with losing pilot control of their anafi directly after hand launch? Previously i have never had any issues doing the hand launch and it hovers from the hand launch action. Until my last flight :( I did the usual hand launch as directed, pressed the take off (in this care hand-launch) button and did the hand launch action. Instead of hovering it did some unusual jerky movements and then took off at a very fast speed and i had no control of it at all.

I have never ever crashed the drone before, both the controller and the drone are up to date and i still had signal and connection. Seems to be a malfunction? Could this be a warranty claim?

I had a similar thing happen to me but it was from a ground launch. Before that launch I had an unsuccessful hand catch and dropped it onto carpet from about 4 ft. I should have done a calibration but didn't. After the ground launch it flew straight ahead at about 2 ft off the ground and I had no control. Flew into a chain link fence but no measurable damage. Since then, no issues...

Since then I have modified my hand catch method. I now just grab it and turn it upside down to kill motors. It registers as a crash in the log but I don't care.

If you turn the Anafi only 90 degrees it kills the motors without being logged as a crash

Never mind that last reply just looked at my logs and realized that in some cases it does get logged as a crash and in some cases it doesn’t.
