    First of all I think the 20 meter climb before returning home sucks. It should be user adjustable in the software. Rant over.

    So let's say I am @ 200'. I loose control. Will the unit, A) climb am additional 20 meters before retiring home. B) decend to 20 meters before returning home or C) not climb or decend before returning home because it is higher than 20 meters?

    Thanks.

    "C"

    Assuming Home Point is/was set at take-off (i.e. ground level)...
    1>if below 20m- it will rise to 20m and then begin to return,
    2>if above 20m- it will remain at current altitiude during return.

    Home Point location and elevation can be re-set in flight to gain additional altitiude if the proper setups have been made (i.e. switching to Naza Mode and enabling IOC).
