    Maybe I'm a bit foggy on this but tell me the home lock is NOT only available via the app that has a tendency to crash!?!?!? On the old setup you were able to assign HL to the 3 pos switch so it was a handshake between the RC and craft. Don't tell me this is only avail in the app??????

    Second, when switching this 3 position switch to the far left to access this new menu what mode are we in??? Atti? GPS? Is there any way to change these switch position defaults??

    Maybe you can set it on the c1 or c2 button? I don't know I haven't updated yet

    Update: F-Mode or switch to far left is a GPS mode. Now the question is, where can you switch to manual? I cant believe DJI would be so Naive as to incorporate Home Lock in the app! I'm hoping I'm wrong but much like RTH this needs to be controlled by the RC and be assignable to one of these C1 or C2 buttons or the useless review button.

    I sure would like an explaination of how each of these new features are supposed to do and the process involved. I don't like this... Here's a new update... You figure it out attitude. I had to call my supplier for answers.

    Agreed. DJI only partially pulled its head out of its A$$es.......
    No PDF file anywhere and NO I don't like reading this crap while I'm in the air!
