For me, when driving a drone, that means:

1. Lose control over an ocean or river.  Doesn't really apply here.

2. Lose control and hit a tree or man-made structure.  Doesn't really apply here, although crashing into 'Persy' would be spectacular...

3. Lose control and hit a hill or mountain.  Tick.

4. Lose control because the drone goes out of range of the transmitter.  I don't think that applies here as the drone has autonomous abilities..

BTW, a couple of helpful tips for Ingenuity for future snaps... :) 

1. Keep your horizon level (don't take notice of some of those Apollo snaps..).

2. Use the two thirds rule to position the subject.  Centering is also OK for sciency-type shots, however.

3. Focus, and keep steady as you press the shutter button.

4. Get closer and thus crop out uninteresting details.

Could a NASA person please text this to Ingenuity?  Thanks.

The response time of the drone within a really thin atmosphere is surprising !

i just like them mentioning that push it bit as in some fields they take it to the top tolerances, say "' oh that's nice --- now take it up more,

 

and hold it there. "

HA!

It's amazing that it got that close to the rover.   Mars is a pretty big planet.   It's quite a feat in itself to touchdown within drone distance of the rover.
