1) I have already acquired another. This time Phantom 2 Vision +, version 3. Gimbal control on left side of controller, upgraded motors, but basically the same thing.
2) Still offering $200 reward or BTC equivalent for the return of the device. I have posted the last known GPS info here, and note I did a reasonable search this morning. I’m more of an indoorsman though:

I’m definitely sad, I’ve lost this amount of money so many times in my life I know it’s not that, it’s the sheer stupidity & laziness of entering 150m instead of 300m into my awesome new hacked DJI app (tyvm ilovecoffee). The waypoint needed to be higher & I can’t stop kicking myself about it. Doesn’t matter that I’ve already replaced my super-fun toy. That’s not the point – the point is that I fucked up and I shouldn’t have. I should have respected the pre-flight research more instead of shooting off like a child. A solemn lesson I hope will teach me in the future to think deeper before sending a soldier on a long waypointed battle.
