If a p3p loses signal when it's climbing vertically, does RTH kick in?

    Does return to home kick in when one loses the signal at let's say 500m+ feet high? Does it just descend back home/until signal regains? Just wondering.....

    RTH gets triggered when signal between AC and RC is lost for over 3 secs but what does it afterwards depends on the setting in DJI Go.

    What you may not appreciate is that flying directly above you the antenna orientation gives you the worst possible signal connection.

    Remote signal Lost triggers one of the selected actions:
    RTH
    Land
    Hover

    If the height at that point is less than set height, it will ascend to that height first and then move towards home point for landing.

    In case of set as Land, it will start landing at the point it gets lost signal

    If it's set to it continues to hover until signal is resumed or battery goes low in that case it will return there if smart RTH is set.
