I was flying the Phantom this afternoon when I lost control of it. Still not sure why--it wasn't very far away. Maybe some type of interference. Anyways, when the quadcopter can't contact the remote control, it simply returns to the same spot where it took off. Here, I didn't anticipate that someone else would drive past me on this newly-constructed parking lot...and it ended up being a close call! For what it's worth, the Phantom landed less than 10 feet from the spot where it took off.
