As far as I know if you did not have a phone or tablet connected there is no way to show the last known location. Pretty much out of luck unless Autel gives you a break like this one.I lost my EVO, is there any information stored in the controller regarding the last location of the aircraft? I f so how do i retrieve it?
Yes indeed, even when shipping back the XSP too...There IS some sort of "logs" or other info saved into the controller but I don't think we, as consumers, can access it. The reason I know this is because they always want the controller included when sending if for service to "review" the flight records which helps determine if it is warranty or not and help with pinpointing/verifying concerns.
Ty, great to clear that up!I hate to break it to you guys but the controller holds not flight data at all. A while back I had asked them and this was their responce.
"Thank you for reaching out to us at Autel Robotics Support. I am not sure of the member of your forum that you are referring to, but you are correct. The Evo's remote controller holds no flight records, no recorded telemetry, and/or any recorded stick movements. We will always ask for a customer's leftover components (RC, charging cables, OTG cables, etc.) when going about a replacement. Sometimes customers like to return their remote controllers ahead of time for us to check and see if the remote itself was faulty and had a malfunction in general that could have contributed to the flyaway. From my knowledge of these cases, the remote controller has not been found to be the source of any flyaway."
To be on the safe side use a phone or tablet, at least it will show the last known position.
10 is to late, always have it within a stone's throw at 30% and aim to land it on or about 20%. Need to allow safety margin for the unexpected such as windYea, it’s an awful helpless feeling. IMO, Always start going home at 10%. There’s too many ways a flight can go wrong. The logs have saved me every time mine landed out of sight. Accurate to 30’ ish. Even knowing that, it can take awhile to find. Those blinking lights help a ton. Have you looked at dusk? I couldn’t find mine once, came back 3 hrs later and it was easy. After 2 days battery probably gone though, sorry for your loss.....
Yea, I hear ya. I’ve gone back/forth on this a few times. I have it set-up to alert me and begin the process at 20%, but I can override it if it’s close. The 10% is last ditch, and it’s close, over flat ground. It all depends on the mission, right? If it’s a long one, or higher altitudes, I begin at 30% or even sooner!10 is to late, always have it within a stone's throw at 30% and aim to land it on or about 20%.
