If you are flying above the RTH altitude when you press RTH, does the drone decent to that altitude before returning?

If it's ABOVE you're preset RTH altitude it will return to home at the current altitude and not start descending until the aircraft is over the home point.

Thanks for the answers above, you can also find it in the manual. I advise reading the manual before practical flying. P4Arth.png

For that, I have great sympathy. Ha


But just think of the wonderful parcel, you have waiting, on your return. ;-)
That's got to be pretty exciting. Have fun sleeping... Dreaming!!

Hope you enjoy that drone, as much as your valuable free time, well spent while in the forum. ;-)

Just be sure to actually have your RTH height set above all surrounding obstacles.

Perhaps launch from an airy open area too. Away from any obvious interference. ;-)
