Well tonight I took my Solo out for a nice flight to capture a great looking sunset. I was flying around this old trestle train bridge(it crosses a river) which looked great with the sun shining through. About mid flight I decided to fly through the bridge a little bit. Shortly after this the Solo lost connection and flew immediately to its right and crashed into the bridge, falling into the water. I was on shore only about 200ft away or so. The bridge has some bars that surround it but it was still mostly in the open so I am thinking it shouldn't have lost connection. I got a kayak right away but it was too late and the drone is lost in the river. Any tips for what to do next? I submitted a support ticket obviously but I'm not sure what else to do at this point. Does anyone think 3DR will replace the drone/GoPro, or am I out of luck? Hard to believe I actually lost it, it's a sad day thats for sure.
