    would it make sense that while flying if you were to loose contol of the phantom that if you cut the transmitter off the phantom would fly back to you own its own?

    It would be really nice if DJI would enable a switch to issue the RTH command. They could add it as an option on the drop-down menu where you enable manual mode. Select "RTH" on that, then when you hit a certain combination of S1 and S2, the Phantom would execute the procedure without a need to turn off the TX.
