Thank you, Rich!  I was trying to be simple

Solution: Go back home straight after low battery warning, don’t force your drone to fly till it’s totally out of power.
What does the line above mean?  Don't force .. until ... ?

Thanks Tim. Is it possible to accidentally start a csc while moving the flight sticks around (and they happen to remain in those positions for long enough)? I am always concerned that is not the best method for performing csc and wonder why there wasn't just a (large enough to get to quick) button for it?

Absolutely hands down, one of the best posts I’ve read on this forum to date, thank you!  
  

Number 8’s solution reminds me of what is called Bold Print, used for emergency procedures that must be memorized.  These procedures had to be committed to memory, as there would be no time or ability to refer to a checklist or tech order.  In this case, I would consider the solution set for 8 to be bold print that every operator should memorize and practice doing.  This would help prevent panic and ensure enacting the proper actions when necessary.

Hello, about the first tip.. what is the easiest way to cancel RTH? When it happends its tempting to find the book and start reading really fast...
Sugestions?

Simple answer, you press the RTH button again...however, there are various factors involved in when and how a RTH is activated.  Canceling RTH is not always advisable, doing so can lead to losing your drone i.e. when your battery level becomes critical it will not have the power to return and canceling could lead to it landing in a place you can't determine.


You must fully read and then read again your manual to understand all the various actions your drone is programed to take under each of the circumstances it was programed for.  Also, for future posts add some details that will help others help you like what type of drone you are flying, versions installed, etc.
Take Care, Good Luck, and Enjoy!

Why not implement ATTI only for the first, let's say 10 flight hours?
Then 5 hours with GPS assistance. And after that all the little gremlins inside activated ...
Drones are too easy to fly, that's why they geht crashed and people geht hurt ...
