    We drove about 3 miles and around 12 minutes. At that point the battery was at about 50% and the Phantom triggered RTH to the original point of take off.

    So I decided to cancel RTH and land.

    I'm completely confused. I apologize in advance because I'm a total noob. Just got my first Phantom 3 last week.

    I thought the P3 didn't have the follow feature and the orbit feature. Can someone point me to a PDF or something with instructions to activate it. All I was able to look up was IOC mode.

    Thanks! :)

    So is everyone using the AutoPilot software for this? I thought that it wasnt available for the P3 yet?

    So any idea when it will come out? Will it be DJI who does it or does everyone have to get the AutoPilot app? Any thoughts?
