    Litchi App & RTH Failsafe

    Following a recommendation I am considering buying the litchi app, installing it on my Samsung Galaxy S7, and flying my modified Phantom 3 Standard in VR FPV. My main concern is this. My flying environment is typically quite less than ideal for signal continuity. Environment is plagued by...

    Initiating RTH without app...

    I have been flying a Phantom 2 (with GoPro) for years and am considering getting a 4 Advanced. I’m familiar with the DJI GO APP from flying an Inspire that my office owns. With the Phantom 2 remote...to initiate a return to home, you can do so by setting one of your S2 options to activate it...

    Drop out after ~100m (previously 600-800+)

    Hey guys. Haven't been flying as much as I used to due to working 6 days a week. I've kept the drone up to date with software and making sure the batteries are in good health every so often but haven't properly flown it. When I did get a chance though I found I couldn't get more than 60-100m...

    If I fly 1000' below home point will RTH still work if connection lost?

    I want to start my takeoff point at 11,000' altitude at ground level in the Colorado Rocky mountains, then fly roughly 1,000' down a cliff, and then back up taking stills and video along the way. If I have RTH altitude set at 45 meters and I lose contact with the P4 will it climb up the 1000'...

    Any Dummy Can Fly a Drone

    For Phantom 4 Pro (and others) Every good pilot uses checklists. Regard your Phantom 4 Pro or other quality UAV as a toy and it will end up as most toys do…broken or lost. As you gain experience with this device you will come to appreciate the sophistication and planning that went into its...

    After I upgraded firmware on my P4 I get constant strong interference messages every second or two in a place I have rarely had that message before even though I have flown there many times . I also took the P4 straight up above me to 392 ft on that same first flight after update to take a few...

    Controls under RTH or forced landing

    Using P3SE: I can't seem to find detailed documentation as to what I can and can not do on the controller when AC is in either RTH or low battery landing mode. I know I can toggle SW-1 to turn off RTH, but that's about all I know. 1. Is there any detailed documentation on these features? 2...

    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...

    RTH Height adjustment gone

    I completed the latest updates to both the remote controller and my P4. All is fine but the option to set my RTH height is gone. I cannot find it anywhere in DJIGO4. I do have the sensors turned on so I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it. i do get a warning on take off that the RTH...

    RTH Problem

    Having a huge problem after last firmware update. Tried to hit’n hold the RTH button for 3 seconds. What happens next is that the aircraft starts to descend where it’s at, and not climb and head for the home point recorded. Anyone else have the same problem? Tested it at a distance of 100-1000...

    Check this after each update...

    Yesterday after updating to latest version on my nearly 2 year old P3P, I went in to check all my settings. Both RTH and Max Height were cleared and reset to 0. Good idea to check these not only after each update but before taking off on each flight. Only takes seconds.

    Kudos to DJI.

    Well, my worst fear happened today. It was my seventh flight. I had small trees in front of me on the bank of the Rappahannock River with my bird out about 900 feet. My video started breaking up, so I knew it was time to head back. I turned the bird around just as the DPI Go 4 flashed that comms...

    RTH settings still oversee drone when operating using Autopilot?

    I really like the Autopilot app and use it a fair amount. I also really like the fact that using the DJI app, I know that my done will RTH if it goes out of range and/or somehow loses connection with remote control. Will my drone RTH if, using Autopilot, I send it on a mission that...

    If I am 300 feet in the air and I lose connection to the drone and I have in my settings (350 feet RTH) will it climb to 350 feet (50 feet higher) to come back or climb an additional 350 feet?
