Found my Phantom

Found my Phantom

I once lost my Phantom flying in the deserts of Arizona. I went home saddened and glum. Suddenly I remembered that I had begun using a new software to pilot my craft that day. It was written by a new developer and the app was named VisionPlus. I remembered that I had read how this new software actually kept a flight log NOT in the belly of the craft but in a folder on the phone that the app was run from. With hopes that I might find this flight log and that somehow it would lead to the recovery of my Phantom 2 Vision+ excited me to no end. I connected the USB cable to my phone and navigated to the application folder. There I found a file that was dated and time stamped that very afternoon. I hastily opened Google Earth and dropped the file onto the open window. I could feel my heart begin to race as I saw the initial opening window in Google Earth begin to spin as it does when a valid location is fed to it. Next, I saw the globe spin and zoom into Arizona and it did not stop until it sat just over a Red Drop Pin near where I recall I had flown that day. It had marked a location just over 1/4 mile off the dirt road I remember driving to get home only an hour earlier. Without hesitation I jumped back into my car and drove myself as close as the dirt road could take me to the drop pin on my Google map. I locked my car and began my trek over a barbed-wire fence, past two dry river beds and all the while skipping over coyote dung. I was determined not to stop until the dot on the map representing my current location was atop of the red pin marking my drone’s location. It did not take more than 15 minutes on foot to turn at a saguaro cactus and there in a dry patch of sand sat my now recovered UAV. It had the biggest grin (or maybe I was slightly dehydrate and only thought it was grinning) as I let out the biggest Whohoo ever. This 360 degree pano is the place I found my investment. I could not believe I actually located my lost drone. I swear by the software I was using. It, at the time, was the ONLY application that maintained flight logs on your mobile device. I have not switched to another software since this day. Oh sure, the app has gone through many version updates since this event. In fact some of you may have even heard of it. Today the app that helped me recover my lost DJI drone goes by the name Litchi.
