    I uploaded my flight log to Phantom log viewer after a flight dd and automatic RTH on me. The RTH did it's job after it lost signal flying behind a building. I get that. But what is the difference between Downlink lost and signal lost?

    5:31.9 Downlink lost
    5:38.19 Downlink restored
    5m 39.1s Signal Lost. Aircraft Returning Home
    5m 39.2s Downlink Lost
    5m 42s Downlink Restored (after 0m 2.8s)
    5m 42.3s Signal Lost. Aircraft Returning Home

    All during this period I had 17 sats, 69% battery

    The downlink is the video connection and the signal is the remote controller connection. The remote controller usually disconnects after the downlink. So, you might still be flying via the remote controller even when there is no video displayed in DJI GO.
