    I was out about 3000 feet and lost signal. My RTH is set at 400 feet. For some reason when the drone increased its altitude it went to 1000 feet. Any insight on why it did this?

    The RTH altitude setting is in meters. Did you enter "120" there or "400"?

    I changed it to what they call imperial units instead of metric. Just because I understand feet better than meters.

    It was 400 feet for sure not 400 meters

    That setting is always in meters. If you entered "400" there, it was really 400 meters.

    I think the only thing that changes with that setting is the read outs on the camera view when your in flight. And all setting within the app stay metric.

    I'll be honest all I could think of was going to prison for downing an airplane. I didn't think it was ever going to stop.
