I was flying my drone and my phone had died and i could not see through the camera. It was pretty frightneing because i was really far out, so i hit the RTH button but the drone was returing at a speed of 5km/h is there anyway i can make it faster.

If its only returning at 5km/h then its going into a big headwind.
You always need to check the wind - smart RTH will end up dropping way short if theres a strong headwind coming back.

If there was no wind then your AC should move much quicker than 5kph , so either you didn't realise how windy it was up there or you have a problem, test it at a distance you can see your Mavic , it might give you some answers.

You can make it go faster by switching to sport mode and pushing full forward stick - you have to ENABLE MULTIPLE FLIGHT MODE in the settings then you can use the button on right side of controller - push button up to engage sport mode. but beware because left and right movements become very sharp and makes controling it a bit tricky esp if you have less practice in sport mode. what are yr battery warning limits set at

How do you know that?
Winds aloft are usually a lot higher than surface winds.
Upload the txt log to airdata.com and it'll calculate the wind speeds.

You are not perhaps flying in beginner mode or tripod mode?

In the RTH, the Mavic will go up at the speed of 5m/s and descend at the speed of 3m/s. The horizontal speed is 10m/s. The speed will change in strong wind. And you can speed up via sticks. Please take care and make sure there is enough battery when fly in wind.

Quite possible he's confusing km/h for m/sec then?
