    I'm not lazy or semi retarded. Just too busy, I read about this option in past and know it exists. I had Betsy 3.5 miles out yesterday. At end of journey I would have preferred pulling back on stick to bring her back home (at least halfway back home). stead of engaging rth and turning her around. How does one activate this feature, and with a battery issue at play it would need to precise and spot on. Thks

    Have latest firmware and Go app installed, switch to F mode and select Home Lock. You can search on home lock for more info. At 30 feet or so it will switch off and the Phantom will then fly backwards.

    I'd recommend using the map and turn the Phantom back on the orange line to fly home.
