    With the quad running on fumes.. Which mode is best to fly back home?

    And also, how many minutes do you get in sport mode before you reach 30%? I don't get more than 10 mins maybe..

    I think atti if you can fly a staight line and keep it at 30mph. Time vs distance will depend on the wind. At 30% battery he math would say about 8 minutes and I think 5 minutes would be the max and too risky for me. Atti has no gps path correction and should consume less energy as long as your not all over the sky. At 30mph you should be able to get 2.5 miles in 5 minutes with no wind. I try to land with at least 15% bat.
