    IF you lose GPS lock and regain GPS mid flight, is the home location reset to the location that it regained the lock or does it remember the original take off location?

    You mean if you lose GPS lock because satellites lock falls to below six? If that's the case, home point is the original one registered until you switch-flick in a new one or you power cycle.

    No 'home' reset takes place during GPS 'lock' intermittency.

    I mean if I take off with 6 sats and fly 500' away and drop to 5 sats but then regain 6 sats, will it remember the original take off location as home or will it set home to the point I regained 6sats?
