Only had my P3A a short time and have tried return to home button just to see if it works, but it doesn’t land where it took off from . The home point was set.

How far away was it when you hit RTH?  It must be more than 65 feet away or it will land where it is.  RTH landing within 5 feet or so of where it took off is normal.

As stated above, it will land where it is if it is not at least 65 feet away, which is a little over 20 meters. I would try going to at least 30 meters and then try again.

Hello and good day Big kevo. I am sorry to know that you are having issue with the RTH of your DJI Phantom 3 Advance. May we know if you have updated the firmware of the DJI Phantom 3 Advance to it's latest version? You may need to press and hold the RTH button on your remote controller for you to use the said function properly. We highly recommend setting the altitude of the aircraft higher than any objects below to avoid the incident. Thank you for continued support and have a safe flight.
