Im curious as to the amount of posts reporting that people are regularly using the failsafe feature. To my mind this is just as the name suggests a back up, not something that I rely on. Perhaps people need to work on their flying skills more and are getting themselves all mixed up orientation wise and can't recover to a state where bringing their phantom back without it is possible. Personally I've only used this feature once. When I first purchase the quad, to make sure it worked.
