    Hello, I have a question....

    When I lift off with my Phantom 3 S, does the "Home Point" automatically set within my DJI Go app?

    OR, do I need to set it manually? Before or after lift off?

    It sets automatically and you should see/hear this announcement.

    When you power up the Phantom and the GPS acquires enough sats to get a position, the Phantom records the home point.
    The app tells you this and you can confirm in the app.

    OK, great....I haven't taken it out for a long distant yet. I just wanted to make sure I don't lose this investment :)

    Thanks for the feedback from all :)
