Flying at a fire incident. Winds and ceiling were acceptable. It was raining. Craft unexpectedly and suddenly turned off at 192 feet.

Dropped like a brick.

Landed on a neighboring rooftop. Recovered the drone. Flight log showed 32% on battery all other parameters were in check and the log just stops. Looks like a sudden shutdown of the FSM.

Reported Cause

Most likely Rain.
