    I've read somewhere that the altitude setting for GPS return to home can be adjusted. I would like to set it higher in the event of tall trees in line with return to home. Does anyone know how this setting can be changed?

    I don't think you can. As far as I know it only operates like this:- If it is below 20m when it enters FS it will climb to 20m and return home. If it is above 20m when it enters FS it will stay at its current hight and return home.

    You need a Wookong or an A2 to do this.

    You can however pop her up above 20M and she will return at that height... :geek:

    But there wouldn't be any need for Return to Home if the control signal was still intact.
