    The Phantom 4 manual mentions a Dynamic Return to home function but it doesn't appear on my DJI Go app as it shows in the manual. Is there some trick to enabling this feature?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    ...I take it then that the Phantom 4 isn't intended to have this feature? I'm looking at the Phantom 4 User Manual V1.0 2016.01.

    Thanks for your response.

    I've never heard of such a feature. Perhaps it's a typo in an older version of the manual?

    I don't see it in the manual I linked above. Can you post a screenshot?

    It was a thing with the P2 and Inspire series, it's oddly missing from the Phantom 3 & 4 for some reason. Just update your home point manually if you move from location to location. I don't know of any way to enable it in DJI Go.

    I guess you're referring to the "dynamic home point" feature? I'm not sure if that's what the OP is referring to.

    Sorry, Dynamic Home Point. It appears the manual I have is a few versions older. Screen Shot 2016-03-25 at 11.36.16 AM.png

    As bradbrok pointed out above, dynamic home point is not a feature of the P4. The home point can only be manually reset.

    DJI never released that manual. Someone leaked is somewhere.

    How can you set it once the quad is in flight?

    You'll see that option in the "MC Settings" section of DJI GO.

    dynamic refers to returning home wherever the pilot is. RTH will always return to take off coordinates, even if you and the rc moves from position. Dynamic will return to whatever position you are with the rc.
