Return to Home Button


#1

Probably a stupid question but here goes. Do you just press the RTH button once when wanting to return or keep your finger pressed on it until it returns?


#2

It’s a longish press until RTH initiates, then you can release and it will continue to return.


#3

And you’ll know when it’s kicked in as it starts to beep at you to let you know it’s in rth mode.

Thanks to both of you for your replies - a great help.

And you can cancel it, by hitting the cross on the screen, or you can correct your flight path during its landing sequence ( in case you need to)
Handy if you have trees around your landing area.

Is it a figment of my imagination or do you guys remember been able to alter the yaw on a RTH so you could film around you, now it just comes back nose first no matter what you do.

I’ve never tried. RTH is RTH for me - there’s a reason I want it back that is way more important than filming.

Edit: Obstacle avoidance is another reason to have it pointing ahead … if one has that switched on … which I almost never do.

I’m pretty sure @colinbm keeps his OA switched on …. :wink:
