After surveying from a height of approximately 10 m, the pilot flew the drone to a height of 30 m when, without warning, it flipped over and fell to the ground. The UA came to rest on a rubble plie approximately 50 m from any person. The pilot reported that, on inspection, it appeared that the battery connector had melted.
