    Did dji remove the setting of the minimum battery level that would trigger return to home?
    Can't seem to find it.

    /edit mode on: had to rename the title to get some responses... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    That option was removed in the 3.04, we're on 3.08 now ;)
    I think it's set at 20% first warning and 15% it will start to autoland or RTH (you choose)

    Low battery warning level is no longer set by battery level. It's now controlled by estimated flight time remaining.
    If you fly too far away, even if you have 50% left on your battery, if the system estimates it will take all of that remaining battery power or more to get back home it will sound a warning and/or initiate a RTH.

    You will notice the green, yellow and red bar at the top of the Vision app screen.
    The yellow and red zones will grow or shrink depending on how far away your phantom is from home point.
    Yellow is low battery warning, red is RTH.

    Will have to see how people will be able to make long distance flights with this update

    It's been this way for a while now. This was changed in the prior firmware release months ago.
    You can disable the RTH on low battery function in the vision app. It's labeled "Low Battery Auto Go Home".
    I have it disabled because RTH flies very slow and odds are it's not gonna make it back anyway. Home lock and full back on the stick is much faster.

    Saao,
    Long distace flight are still possible when you use dynamic home point in combination with low battery rth feature. Obviously you have to follow the bird by bycycle or car or by foot

    The place you used to change it is now blank, it looks like a bug to me.
