Grass mowing followup

Although she wasn’t running full stats, she always logs some core details.  These show that she probably had around 1.5m to reach the target.  At 1m, she moves onto the next target, or lands if there are no more left.  She was probably only a few seconds away from this happening when she flipped.  This is in line with my speculation that the mowing simply was due to the main LiPo no longer having enough power to keep her up in the air.  Post flight checking shows it at 38% which (after 5 years experience) is where flights always go wobbly. It was contact with the ground that triggered the lawn mowing flip.

She took off and hovered pointing roughly upwards in the video, and the GPS had her heading approximately 60° anticlockwire i.e. as Z gyrometer defines the angles in the main motion processing:

Next time and weather available is Monday, so I’ll be taking here out again with a set of fully charged batteries to do the same again.  Third time lucky.
