This video demonstrates the importance of properly spotting your surroundings prior to flight. I very nearly lost my drone whilst flying over the ocean chasing a fishing boat, but luckily RTH prevailed and brought the drone back home to me safe and sound.

This video aims shows you guys how close I was to losing my drone to a tree, and how amazing the return to home function really is on DJI products. The Phantom was roughly half a mile away over open water at the time of my last contact and I initiated RTH. Within 30 seconds the drone regained signal just meters from a tree on the top of a cliff edge! Luckily the drone lifted and lifted until it could pass clear of the obstacle and continue on its path home.

I record at 1080p/60fps and vivid colour settings.
