I have been flying my phantom now for about 6 weeks and just came across an interesting situation that maybe someone in the forum can shed some light on. I flew my phantom early in the day with all systems go (11-12 sats). I used home lock to bring my chopper back close to its takeoff point without an issue. After running 2 batteries down, I went home for a recharge. later that day I went back out to a location about 3oo yards away from my original flying area. I received 6 satellites and got home lock. I took off and flew the chopper about 1600 feet from home base. I issued a yaw command and rotated 360 degrees at which time I received a momentary message saying the phantom connection was lost. After about 10 seconds, I was back in control. At this time it was only a dot in the sky so I switched to home lock again and slid the control into reverse. It should have come directly back to my home base but instead it took a completely different course. Eventually I switched off home lock and worked it back to my flying area. After analyzing the film, I am pretty sure the phantom was heading back to my early morning home point. I was recording voice over the film so I knew I was requesting reverse. When I plotted some points on the sat map, it looks like if I continued to keep it in home lock and the reverse command, it would have been back at that early morning landing area. Two questions: Why would I have lost my connection, and why did it not come to its proper home point? Thanks in advance for any help in this matter.
