A few times now I have been trying to fly from a beach to the tip of a nearby mountain, obviously ascending in the process over a distance of approx. 3 miles. I have chosen days with no wind or with tailwind on the way back, because the land in between is a mystery to me and difficult to access and I did not want to be forced to land in that area. Unfortunately, all attempts where messed up by the Smart return to Home. Strangely enough, in DJ Go the video signal loss and the return to home where far earlier than with Litchi, but also Litchi forced me to return home and ... when I got back to the beach the battery still had 55% capacity. I wanted to try disabling the Smart Return to Home, but not even knowing how it is called (some call it RTH on low battery) I had no clue how the Phantom 3 Pro with todays actual app versions would behave with Smart RTH unchecked in case of loss of signal. I tried to fly the other way round, where the return is more consuming, and I could reach the same beach from the same mountain, but shortly after that I was forced back. Here is the flightand my main questions. How does the phantom behave with Smart RTH disabled in case of loss of signal. I know it has been discussed before, but usually around 2017 and with todays versions of Litchi or DJ Go it might be different ... while the firmware should have stayed the same. Furthermore, I felt blackmailed by the system when I tried to cancel the RTH, because every time I was told 'aircraft requests to go home' and canceled the procedure within 3 seconds the app would report signal loss and return to home anyway. Signal loss every time I cancel RTH and with full signal just a few seconds ago seems suspicious to me. Anybody experienced the same behavior? But mostly, can I assume that after loss of signal the Phantom 3 will always return home or try to do so no matter the settings in the app (on device or drone) ? Thanks for your help !
