    Phantom 3 Professional

    If my phone / tablet crashes while I am in the air or I have any other sort of problem, can I simply grab another device that is already set-up and ready to go and recover?

    What issues might I encounter?

    Just fly it home using your controller. You don't need a phone/tablet to fly.

    That is assuming you can still see it.

    RTH should work even if you don't see the AC if the AC has enough GPS in P-mode and its compass is OK.

    You might want to read about IOC.

    Indicators of compromise?
    Do you mean LOS? Line of Sight?
