On large concrete area, no landing pad, with an actual emergency RTH - I found Mavic Pro P to have very precise landing.  Mavic Pro P appeared to land same place and pointing same direction as it took off from.

That is why I found it to be quite impressive. To find it's way back to almost exactly the same spot!

In the beginning I used RTH a lot, just to make sure it worked. This winter not so much because I took off from my deck, under a canopy of trees and could not have it just drop straight down, so had to fauns a through the trees landing. Which is good experience for manual flying. Now I will use it every once in a while but like the challenge of manual landing. Still with do the precision take off though, so incase of trouble, the home point is locked and loaded.

Within an inch or two - on the very rare occasions I use it.

99% of the time my MP has hit the mark using RTH and the precise landing option.
There has been a few occasions it missed the mark by 10 feet.. Had to take control when it was about to land.
I found in those  case if I recalibrate the compass it will RTH and will land exactly where it took off from.

I always check the status of the compass and IMU before flying. I have no explanation why it sometimes is off when it does RTH.

It's usually very accruate, however, it has missed the landings a couple times by about 7-10 feet.
