    Lost P4 Pro - disconnected during flight and battery died. Any hope?

    Hi everyone, I have a very unfortunate situation with my Phantom 4 Pro. This evening I was flying it about 1000m (distance) and 300m (altitude) over a forest when it lost the connection to my remote and iPad (I had previously flown it much further without any connection issues). At the time, the...

    Hello. I have had my DJI Phantom 3 Standard for about a year and a half and have had no real issues with it. I haven't flown much recently, but when I pulled it out a month ago to fly, I noticed the distance was severely impacted and would RTH while loosing signal at close ranges. I use to go...

    Return to Home Fails on my LEMON 4 PRO

Scenario: 1) get setup 2) launch 3) get a GPS lock, acquire home point 4) fly away 4) activate RTH 5) it does not return to the home point, and usually starts trying to...

    Lost contact / Return to Home

    I've been flying a Phantom 2 for theee years. I'm on my second one. For the first time ever yesterday afternoon, while flying at a spot I've flown many times...my phantom all of a sudden lost contact with the remote. It began blinking yellow, initiating RTH. It flew back to its correct take off...

    I had my first heart-stopping moment (and I made it through)

    TL;DR - Lost signal and my drone returned to home but I wasn't there. Had to go back to my point of origin to recover. Found it and all is well. Skip to the end for my questions. For the whole story, read on. This weekend my family and I participated in a local walk for charity. One of the...

    Phantom 4 - Litchi - Return to Home

    Today I was using the latest iOS Litchi app with my Phantom 4. I had the drone run a pre-planned mission with about 20 waypoints. It got almost half way through and then it just stopped, turned, and flew directly back home. The status bar at the top on the Litch app turned from green to blue and...

    Any way to disable / override airspace failsafe geofencing?

    The current Phantom 2 firmware includes a function that automatically initiates a failsafe return-to-home when the GPS senses the Phantom is in controlled airspace (i.e., near an airport) and the craft climbs above a certain altitude (I think about 100 feet). Problem is, there are lots of cases...

    Litchi - Return to home

    Hi, this was my first time using Litchi (Android) and my P3S keep initiating return to home even at various (short) distances even though there are no signal lost condition. Is there any reason why it's behaving like that? Here's the log from healthydrones: HealthyDrones.com - Innovative flight...

    Return to Home Issue

    I'm still beginner and am in a testing phase. I took off and flew away around 50 meters from the starting point (home) at around 10 meters of elevation and hit the RTH button. RTH was initiated. My P4 raised up to 20 meters (this elevation was configured for RTH) and landed in the ground point...

    P3S lost signal, but RTH doesn't seem to kick in.

    I am relatively new and basically flew just a bit out of range. Actually I live in the Appalachian Mountains and I just flew around a stand of trees where I was just out of sight. Anyway, I lost signal and it seemed like it was just hoovering so I pressed the RTH button on the app. I got a...

    Cancel RTH Quickly

    So a friend came over and wanted to see me fly my drone. I told him the battery was charging but it was probably enough to just hover around for a few minutes. Anyway that's what I did. I did not hear it say it was initiating RTS, possibly cause of the noise from the drone being so close. There...

    Can it return to home if "home" is inside?

    Hello, I understand that the Mavic can be flown inside relatively safely. It can even return to "home", even though there is no GPS signal inside, because it recognizes the optical features of "home". I have several questions related to this. What if the "home" location is not within one...

    No Cell Service?

    Sorry if this question is redundant. If I'm out in the middle of nowhere with no cell service, will my phone still record a new gps home point? Will return to home still work? And finally, do I need to cache my maps beforehand? If so, how does one do that on an iphone? Thanks!
