So I was on vacation in Costa Rica, was in the awesome rain forest area with waterfall.... Took out my Mavic at the top of the falls, can't remember how many satillites showed up but it was GPS green and ready to fly.... Took it over Cliff was flying for several minutes and decided to descend a little into Cliff.   So now I'm flying about 50 feet down into the cliff, and I loose GPS, not a big deal I think to myself until I realize I could no longer ascend without GPS, so  now I'm hovering 50 feet below the cliff edge and can't bring it up... Long story short I had to land it onto a small rock and had to climb to this cliff to get it...
In the future, anything I can do to bring it back?

That's a tough one, but I'm glad I read it here before I put my own Mavic into the same scenario, like descending into a sinkhole or quarry. I don't have any solutions for you but thank for sharing your knowledge and experience so people are aware that it could happen to them.

I wonder if putting it on sports mode would have helped?

That's a bit alarming as most cliffs where i live usually mean sea below and miles and miles before any kind of beach.

I will be watching this with interest.

I think it don't change anything. There is a limit in the FW which stop it.
Its one of the first hing you change in FW if modded.
