    How do I know or what indication is there in screen that the home point has been recorded before I take off?

    There is also a line of text that pops up to let you know (at least on the Android app). I _think_ the home point is set once you turn the motors on. So turn the motors on and watch the screen.

    The home point shows as an "H" on the map.

    If you have the volume turned up on your tablet or phone the voice announces a new home point has been set. I frequently miss that because I've turned the volume down for some other reason and forget to turn it back up for flying.
