    Hi,

    Does anyone know, if your device is in "go home" mode…What if you have some high trees in your area?

    Does it come in with high altitude?

    Thanks in advance..

    Its in the manual however it will go up to 60ft, then move back over where it began if it has battery to do so, then hover for about 10 seconds. Then come down for a landing.

    the go home function will not be able to fly around, over (taller than 60 feet), or under any obstacle in the way.

    If you take off, and fly around a church tower, you loose line of sight, and possibly your connection. Fail safe will kick in, and if you're unlucky, it will fly straight into the tower; however, there's a way to get around this: if you, after takeoff move to a different location, and do your fly-around, it's possible to make sure the loss of line of sight will occur where the phantom can fly unobstructed to its take off position :)
