Hi. I’ve been reading posts for a while and registered a few days ago.
I’ve been into photography for a while and just purchased a DJI Mini 3 Pro after reading lots of different forum post and hundreds of hours of Youtube videos. Even after all this research, I’m still amazed how well this drone performs.
My first flight went well until I decided to try out RTN. I pressed the button and the drone disappeared from view. My heart was pumping. After a minute I cancelled the RTH and looked at the screen to see where it was. The drone was only 0.1m away but 100m up! RTH was set to 100m and I hadn’t grasped how high this was for a little drone.
