    The copter lost signal and visual in flight no GPS home link, what happens next to the copter?
    Do the batteries run out and the copter will just fall out of the sky?

    It will land where it is (If it has enough battery to do so)

    Well that's good news, now all I have to do is find it, unfortunately there are a lot of tall trees in the area the copter would have landed!
    thanks for the reply!

    Well, if you have no GPS.. it would be in ATTI mode and drift with the wind.. until the battery ran low and autoland kicked in.
    How come you took off without a GPS fix and no home location set?
