Hi all this my be a stupid question but i want to knpw before i do some thing wrong

When starting up to save home location must o save the remote home location or aircraft home location ?

Reason i asking is because when i hit the auto take off. I fly around and when i click he "H" on the go app it just decends where ever it is and lands but before i started my flight i said home location as of aircraft and not remote .

If some one could please left me know what i am doing wrong and educate me.

Thank you.

You may be within 20m of the home point? This post explains RTH very well:

It will set its own home point (listen to verify it has, then double check in DJI GO app). If within 20m of that point, it will land where it is. Further away, it will ascend to the RTH height (set in GO app), return in a straight line, then descend to landing. The post I linked explains it all very well. VERY IMPORTANT to verify home point has been set, and your RTH height is high enough to avoid any obstructions in the straight line return to home.

Always the departure point of the aircraft unless you move away from there with the RC. A classic case would be if you got in a car and drove away from where you started, taking the RC unit with you.

However, and this is important, your display device MUST have GPS capability to set the new home point, and they are not always that accurate. It is a dicey thing to do.

For simplicity's sake, Geebax is correct.  Set the AIRCRAFT Homepoint.
