    Hello Folks,

    Question: My RTH altitude is set at 50m, If I takeoff from atop a hill and go flying around in the valley a bit (lower than original take off point), when I hit RTH will my Phantom climb to 50m above my original location, or 50m above it's present location, which may be lower than original loc?

    Cheers

    Derko

    It should climb 50m above where your home point was marked.

    However, if your Phantom has less than 6 satellites when RTH kicks in, it'll land at its current location if it's not able to connect to at least 6 satellites within 20 seconds.
