    Hi All, I recently bought the Karma and flown it a handful of times without issues. Today at take off at about 5-8 feet it just drifted away by itself and hit a wooden pole. It wasn't even windy. I have flown it in windier times and it always stayed at its place.

    Any reason why this could have happened?

    Was the GPS signal 100% acquired?

    Were there nearby obstructions (trees or building) that could influences the quality of the GPS signal? (Ideally, you really need to be in an open space.)

    Were you not able to use stick control to limit the drift? (You can't launch and walk away and assume the drone will remain in place)
