    I have a question, why does the flight controller switch from Home Lock to Course Lock when you get under 10 meters distance from your home point?

    Why does it not continue flying all the way to the home point and then just hovers at it if you are still pulling back on your right(Elev) stick? That would be logical.
    If the intention was to protect the pilot from incoming craft, then why not implement a safe radius where it would not even come inside a 10m circle. This way when it switches to Course Lock it can still hit the pilot, so I don't get it. What was the original intention?
