    Hi,

    i just have a Phantom 3 Standard and broke the gimbal but it is still flying and the GPS positioning works, my question is will the RTH works by using the S2 switch method? since the RTH button not work on the app.

    As far as I understand it you should be able to use the S2 switch to activate RTH

    i didn't try it but will toggling the S2 switch will activate the RTH without the Gimbal? since the half of the functions of the aircraft is in the Gimbal.

    none of the flight controls are in the gimbal , only camera functions , RTH will work through the app without the camera/gimbal installed

    Also when you initiate it with the S2 switch, you'll hear the constant beeping sound and a red led on the trx light.

    I have a P3s that has no camera or gimble and I can initiate RTH with the S2 switch and cancel it with the S1 switch. Hope that helps.
