Thanks. One thing that's confusing in the GO app has to do with the preset RTH altitude. Even though I have Units of Measurement in General Settings set to Imperial (feet), the RTH Altitude setting is still in meters (as is Set Maximum Flight Altitude). Keeping everything consistent would lead to less errors and better safety imo.

Keeps resetting the RTH altitude to 30 meters everytime. Really dangerous if you forget to check every flight.

The mixture of Imperial and metric has been a complaint of mine ever since the Go App came out and has yet to be addressed. Seems like a really simple fix but yes, you are right, it is very confusing and you don't really know if it is a numerical error or a labeling error. So when everything is set to imperial measurements, is Failsafe altitude 30 ft or 30 meters? I only know from experience that that the failsafe altitude is always shown in meters regardless if the app is set to imperial or not.

Most of the free world, and plenty of unfree too, is metric.
Why? Because it is finer, so more precise. You get a better measurement.

Here in Canada, We don't use the pony express any more.
Yeah, we began using homing pigeons... ;-)
Why, because when they drop a load, it is more precise... Hahaha

Honestly, we hated it, in the early days, but eventually, it grew on us, to accept and mostly actually all like it now.
Change can be difficult, like transitioning from heli's to quads, and back again...
Now 3D quads, hahaha

Checked the weather today, & it said cloudy.
With a great chance of drones... ;-)

I must agree. I call a rough figure by multiplying the meter fire by 3.

Tim - You've posted 2 videos lately about safety tips while flying. One video shows the antennas parallel to each other for best transmission and this video shows antennas in a different position with antennas pointing outwards. Does it make a difference, is one going to transmit better than the other?

Antennas can point separate directions but cannot be crossed

I believe that if you want the best possible signal strength you want to place the antennas vertically, keeping the polarization true. The ACs' antennas are vertical and putting the RCs' antennas in any position but vertical my affect signal strength.

The video is good, but it does not mention the most important thing - engage brain before flying.

Totally agree. I really thought when I was in middle school and we were first introduced into the metric system that by the time I reached my current age (54) that we, the USA, would have been well on our way to the metric system and join the rest of the world.  But Noooo. Why we are still driving the horse and buggy I have no idea. I prefer the metric system myself.
