Every time I fly, I get the warning about electrical interference no matter where I am. Is this fairly common. Any solution to make this go away.

More common than you think. I had to make sure that I was in an area away from buried electrical cables, buildings and take off my fancy electronic watch. Other people have mentioned this in this forum and assuming everything is up to date with the drone and app, it becomes a process of elimination. Unless you have a pacemaker....

Would this interference cause me to lose contact with my Phantom and fly away or if I lose contact because of interference, would it return to home?

As long as your settings are correctly set up in the app, it will come back to you. Does the electrical interference go away as you increase distance?

Three things are required for the Return To Home function to work properly:
1) A GPS signal
2) A working compass
3) Proper setup/activation of RTH function.
If your interference messes with any of these, RTH is questionable.

All 3 above are working good so hopefully if needed, the RTH should work as intended.
