    To all: I have searched the forum and have not seen this question before. I am hoping someone has done this specific maneuver and can give me some info. If you take off from the top of a mountain (think ski resort) and fly down the mountain (so your altitude is more than 60ft below your home point altitude) and you suffer loss of signal, when the quad goes into "come home" mode, will it only rise to 60 foot above its current altitude or will it rise to 60 ft above the home point altitude??

    I am pretty sure it is the home point altitude.

    If it's less than 20m above home point, it will climb to 20m and then return. If it's already 20m above home point, it will maintain that altitude until it's above the home point then descend. All in the manual ;)
