    I think I may have this correct, but thought I would ask also.
    Quad up in the air, home lock checked and is OK, switch to Atti, right stick forward, and quad goes away fast. Ok, so lets say somethig goes wrong. Battery falls out of controller and shuts off. I'm thinking quad knows it lost connection, comes to a quick stop, waits, turns around, and comes home. Got that correct?
    It doesn't keep drifting because it was in atti?

    If it loses radio contact, it will initiate an RTH if there is a home point recorded and enough satellites to get a fix. RTH overrides ATTI.

    Kind of thought so, but wondered because of being in Atti.
