    Does Wi-Fi have to be turned on my display or some where on the Phantom 4? Or can the P4 be flown without WI-FI.

    No. The Phantom 4 does not use Wi-Fi.

    I've actually had a problem when I've had wifi on an I'm flying around my house; the phantom seems to think home is in the middle of the house, rather than where I took off from in my yard. I always make sure wifi is OFF and cellular data is ON, before I fly.

    Okay, I'm new to the drone world. What is the purpose having cellular on?

    So you get your flight map on your phone or tablet. It shows where you are, where you're going, and records where you've been.
