    Just curious. I know the batteries need to be heated up, along with me, but, how cold?? Thanx H.P.

    Phone/tablet holder

    I have that same holder also. I just unscrew the thumb-nut and remove the holder. I have the DJI backpack and just used an Exacto-knife and trimmed the spot where the controller fits, a little larger. As for the holder itself, I just used one of the empty spots in the backpack to store it. Hope...

    ? about the DJIGo App.

    I knew it was a stupid question. Common sense told me that, but could I listen, no. Thanks, just have to X by 39", then / by 12"! Not too much of a problem for me, due to the fact, I shoot long range and I used to have a scope in Mils. and now I use one in MOA (" 's). Again, thanx! Mac👍

    ? about the DJIGo App.

    When setting up the app. (a/c powered-up, RC on, tablet w/ app. up & running), and you set the min./max./RTH altitudes, and it shows "meters", is that the unit of measurement, or is it"imperial" when it is chosen in the "settings" page? Dumba*^ question I know, That's why I call myself "H.P."...

    I'm probably expecting too much "precision" out of something that can't provide it. I'm good with knowing it's limitations, not that I'm doing anything more than recreational (fun) flying with it anyways. Thanx. Mac:cool:

    Finally got to FLY this evening.

    Ok, I'll check/listen for that prompt next time. I may of had the volume turned down on my tablet, so I wasn't able to hear it. I also d/n see any screen prompts either. I guess I'll have to pay more attention the next time I go flying. Thanx! Mac:cool:

    Finally got to FLY this evening.

    I thought that's how the "home point" was recorded (compass & IMU were calib.), because I used "auto take-off" and let the bird hoover for what I felt was long enough, then went about flying. Then when I decided to land and hit the RTH prompt, the bird would land within a 10 ft. area from my...
