    Hi,

    I've been flying my phantom 2 mostly in close range, or at least after 10mins I try to be close by. I noticed the following, after I saw the first battery warning, I was hovering around at about 5-8meters high closeby. Then the 2nd warning came in and it looked like it started landing itself straight away. I could still move a bit around but it seemed it started descend itself? Is this correct, or did I misinterpret the behaviour. Would like to know the logic of the device.

    thanks for your input.

    happy phantom2 owner

    Autoland will happen if voltage goes below 10.65v. It is the 3rd level warning. And yes, all of this is in the fine manual!
