Please connect the drone to DJI Assistant 2, and save the flight data to local, upload to Dropbox and provide me with the link.
For the log of the syncing, please connect the mobile device to iTunes, and export the log.
Appreciate it.



Here you can see both VPS and Altitude... the more you fly the more the difference becomes...

Thanks...

Hi CanonMax, H means the relative altitude to the takeoff point, and VPS means the absolute height to the ground. Can you confirm if there is a change of the terrain after takeoff?
Besides, if you had also tried the latest firmware, but the altitude is acting abnormally, you can share the data and flight record for further confirmation.
By checking the screenshot here may not be able to know the exact issue clearly. Thank you for your assistance.

Hi CanonMax, just read your message.
I checked my logfiles and see similar deviations in height between the VPS and IMU. Typically around 2m / 6ft difference.

Thanks for your answer and confirmation about these deviations... I checked a RTH and noticed that my drone went higher up than the 30m I have put in the DJI GO 4 app...
Especially when using Waypoints 2.0 I am a bit concerned...
At the moment I am abroad but will test again when I get back.

Take care - fly safe!

Sorry to bring up an old post but has anybody figured a way to solve this home point issue yet?
I have only recently purchased the m2p (upgraded for the Phantom 3) and not being able to change the home point to the RC is putting a real dampener on my new drone!!
I have contacted DJI via Facebook and they seemed to have no idea what was going on, asked for screenshots of the issue and have now

I honestly can’t believe that this has been going on for so long and DJI/Apple haven’t fixed it yet!!

Agreed! This delay of the fix is ridiculous! Lost my drone because of it!

Well, I have the same problem that I cannot set the RTH-point to the RC location. Tried with Iphone X and iPhone 7 Plus. I understand that this is still not fixed? Or is there anything I can do to sort this out? Wanted to use the drone riding on the bike and would need to have this option work....
Thanks in advance.

I have been having the same issue with an iPhone 8+ but just updated GO4 to version 4.3.20 and will try to test again today.

Well, mixed results.  It worked the first time, failed the second (even tried resetting the home point to the AC, which worked and then tried again to set to RC and it didn't work), then tried again after a brief disconnect and reconnect and it worked, and then tried again and it did not work.  All the time had between 12 and 14 sats showing.  So not sure what is happening.  All with iPhone 8+ with IOS 12.3.2 and DJI GO4 4.3.20.  Each time I moved to the same spot about 100 ft away from launch, hover and confirmation of RTH to AC hover point.

After a long drawn out conversation (no I’m not going to say argument) DJI admitted it’s a known issue solely with IOS devices. They informed me if I wanted to be able to utilize this feature of my drone I would need to buy an Android device!
I did mention to them nicely that my Mavic 2 Pro is advertised as being made for iOS devices.
They said to me that they have forwarded my concerns onto the development department but for my own health and well-being I have decided not to hold my breathe!!

That is disappointing.  I too am an Apple user facing this problem.  There are multiple threads on this topic which has been going on for almost 2 years.  I would urge DJI to push its engineers/software folks to actually fix this.
