I maxed out my distance n altitude, lost FPV, scary! telemetry was fine, so RTH engaged, when FPV came back I noticed my heading was fine but the AC was skewed 10deg right. flew like that til ~50m out, hovered, nose lined up on heading and returned fine.

close in flight seems normal. still learning terms, is that "yaw"?

I worked on lots of XYZ axis stuff n every manufacture liked their "own" version
my world X axis is L_R, Y is Up_Dn, n Z is In_Out

so Y goes "through" the AC top to bottom and AC moves L_R making it yaw

I've found once you learn terms, everything else is easy!
