    Home point is your take off location typically.
    Never good to not have it stored before take-off even if you plan to change it later.

    How are you launching if you feel that is not a good place to return to?

    Or are you worried about GPS accuracy?
    GPS should be good to within about an 8 foot radius.

    No my GPS lock is always good. I'm just wondering if some people go out to fly with water en trees around them and make a home point. When it's returning manual override it then.
