    did a flight on saturday just to test out my new ipad air 2 and noticed that the distance from home point was counting up the meters as normal, i went around 3500 meters out then turned to come home, when i was coming home the meters did not count back down they just stuck at the furthest distance i had flown to. anyone else had this ?.

    No, God Forbid! I'd hate that! Did the little Phantom icon still move correctly on the map?

    yes the icon was moving along the flight path back to the home point.

    Only had that when I pushed it until it dropped signal.
    It wasn't getting the telemetry for a while so stuck at the last known distance from home.
    Weird the icon was moving if that was the cause though.
