When I was about to land my drone, it start going up and flying in an other dirrection. I finally understand that he was going to an homepoint that he set up alone. What a wierd behaviour. I wasn't expected that at all. I was able to land it my self because if he had go to his homepoint he would have land on a highway. What a weird behaviour.

How did it set its own Homepoint?  Did you have it tracking a highway car and have update homepoints selected?  If it is tracking its owner in one of the intelligent flight modes, it will update the homepoint to be nearby so it doesn't fly back to the starting point of the owner's bike ride.

Magog, did you use dynamic home point at that time? Please turn if off and try again. Thanks for your support.

Did you wait for the home point to be set on the map before arming the motors?

Ohh that's must be why he did that. It must have switch from ATTI mode to GPS mode during the fly time

If you didn't wait for the home point that is exactly what will happen. When GPS connects mid flight it will set the HP at that location. Always wait for the HP to be set before you even start the motors spinning. It can take a little while depending on your location but do wait.

Exactly, and if for whatever reason homepoint does not get set at take off location because of weak GPS link, go somewhere else.

We seem to be brothers in mind... ;-) By the way, your recent explanation on ND filters was excellent and allowed me to finally understand what they are good for. Thank you for that! Sorry for ending up off topic ;-)
