Just for a little history, have been flying it since the firmware update 2. something with no issues, and mind you, my backyard is near power lines. So, yesterday we went to the lake where a friend is building her home, the power lines are on the street while the lake is obviously in her backyard. Flew the drone one time, it was fine and landed it no problem. Second time, I started the motor - pressed the auto lift -was expecting to hover to about 5 feet ....... nope just like the energizer bunny rabbit it keeps going and going UP!!!!!, I thought...wtf? I kept on pushing the throttle stick down - no response, did it again -the XSP was about 100 feet at this point - boom it responded. Landed the drone but the landing was not smooth, I kept on the throttle to bring it down and eased up on the throttle, it landed hard good thing I had the pool noodle attached. So, tried to fly again *third time) - not sure if it was a fluke -but this time I used the throttle to lift the drone - no problem hovered at 5 feet. Flew the drone and landed flawlessly, after the third flight -changed batteries - figured instead of using the auto lift, I will use the throttle again - and wham it did exactly the same thing kept on going up but instead of landing the drone, I use the forward stick and responded with no issues and was able to control the altitude afterwards and landed her safely after flying. Sorry for the long story, but this made me paranoid again - after my incident on the first drone, I am little paranoid -should I try downloading the firmware again?
