    If via app settings are changed when acft and controller are off do they automatically update to acft and controller when turned on?

    No....you need everything turned on for settings to take effect.

    No. Many of the settings are not stored in your tablet.
    They are stored in the Phantom.

    Yes thank you both.

    Seemingly the setting to imperial measurements ie feet etc shows in max height as feet on flying display but looking at eg RTH setting shows in metres!?

    Also if you do a software or firmware update, check everything as some settings reset to default value.

    RTH is "hard wired" to metric, but all your distance/height measurements will show as imperial.

    I wish all settings are converted to one system of measurement as it creates confusion for newbies.

    Many settings are stored on RC/AC and are copied back to DJI go app when that's connected to RC/ AC.

    It may be a good practice to follow a starting sequence of RC > AC > Go App
