    Good to know if you loose iosd mini info,
    or power failure on the monitor, or whatever emergency case:

    Definitely. That is (IMHO) the primary reason to enable Naza-M mode in the Phantom Assistant software. HL is a life-saver (or at the very least, a Phantom-saver).

    It definitely is, and it's a technique I'm certainly going to practise.

    If it isn't going left or right, you can give it either left or right rudder, and then follow the same tip regardless of which way it turns.

    If it starts turning left, you know it's going away from you but still follow the tip and give it more left rudder. If it starts going right, you know it is heading toward you but still follow the tip and give it right rudder to face it toward you again.

    This, though, is a useful technique for general flying, not merely for getting out of trouble. Many thanks to the original poster for bringing it to our attention.
