I flew a Ground Station this afternoon, 12 satellites, and all was well. At the end of the course I took manual control as there was a lot of battery left.

When it was time to land, I noticed Home Lock and Course Lock weren't working. Is it because I disabled the Ground Station?
 
What happened when you tried to use both?
 
Neither worked. But the bird was rock steady with the GPS lock on. I'll have to experiment. I've used Home Lock a number of times when flying and it works flawlessly.
 
How close was the Phantom to the home point?
 
300' or so when I tried it.
 
That's really odd. Both should have worked at that distance.
 
Yes it does seen odd. Last non-GS flight was fine for both HL and CL. My guess is when you terminate GS mid-flight it rids itself of launch info. I'll try to replicate with another GS.
 
I've experienced something similar. A quick switch to atti and back to gps mode sorts it for me.
