So I took my drone out for a short test flight.  Take off/landed couple times with a short flight.  No problems... third flight  I took it a little higher and it just fell straight out of the sky with about 85% battery left.  Any idea why? 

The propeller guards shattered the battery door popped off. two rotors are shot. One arm is cracked/warped.  

 First short flights everything seemed fine... this is rather disappointing =(  Hopefully it won't take long to get it replaced.

I emailed support took a little while to get back they asked for specifics... I supplied them... got email back asking for a photo... I supplied a couple..  got a response that they'll ship me a new one in a week or so.  

I can't complain.  Hope everything continues to go smoothly.

Of it's < 1 year old, I'd contact Google play store if that's where you got it. Supposedly, they'll replace the phone for wonky problems.

Did you make it out to Kalalau when you were on Kauai?  That hike is seriously intense.
