    Had some spare time and the sun was setting, so I decided to do a bit more practice in FPV. Took off, got above the Apt complex, then did a simple 360, decided to climb higher. Didn't get far before I lost link, at 1:04 in the video you can hear the motors slow at RTH kicks in. It was straight above me, so I took off my goggles and watched. Decided to let it self land, but kept my controls ready to take over if it was going to land elsewhere. Guess I should have gotten in front of the camera and showed the Tx.

    Thank goodness for failsafe! Every Phantom owner has used it at least once, it has made multirotor flying accessible to people who are not diehard RC enthusiasts.
