New phantom 3 standard owner. Have only flown it once since purchase. Read all the instructions, read a ton of forum posts, and watched a lot of videos. All excellent information. Had an interference problem during short, low flight. Return to home did not work and had to slow down and land it manually. Minor flip over, no damage. Upon thinking about it I believe it to be the magnets in the coat I was wearing. Once the weather improves I'll wear a different coat and learn to fly my unit. Thanks for listening, excited to get it airborne again.

You said the RTH didn't work. How close to home were you when you tried. There is a minimum distance that the bird had to be from home before RTH will engage. Indies that min, it just autolands.
