Im listening to the podcast now and the one thing so far that I thought was really interesting was the deer in the headlights hypnotic effect when they first encounter the craft. That is fascinating

Barometric pressure my ass. I just did a quick search and found it ties into the compass. If its miscalibrated it can register wildly inaccurate climbing results.
The iPhone 6 barometer's sensor is the new BMP 280 made by Bosch according to Apple. So the difference when you account for altitude - in this case 173 feet - is 0.3 milli bar. Not bad at all. The Kestrel is calibrated at the factory to a known standard and in the field you would input the altitude offset.

Just put the phone in a sealed container and bump the pressure in the container. Heating up the phone in a waterproof phone case might do it too.

iPhone 6 has adequate speakers, you wouldn’t need it in your shirt pocket to listen to music, especially at night.
And you would naturally roll over and onto it muffling the sound, unless you sleep like a corpse. Any logical person would place the phone on their nightstand, headboard, or even on the floor next to the bed.
As usual, this proof is so far from proof it’s laughable.
I could get the same results strapping my phone to a drone.

When I was in high school I used to say, "I want to be abducted so bad so I can finally know for sure." It was all fun and cool until somebody said, "you just want to be anal probed" everyone around me laughed which embarrassed me so I stopped saying it.
