    WIthout GPS your Phantom is lost.
    It has no idea where it is or how to get from there to home.

    If you lose gps HL does not work and the craft will switch to atti mode keeping its altitude BUT will drift in the wind, CL will still work but you would need to be careful using this option, not sure about the following scenario though.
    I think if you were to lose gps and control signal at the same time then it would just land where it is?
    Or would it keep altitude, drifting in the wind until you regain contol, if no control was gained then land at the critical battery level?
    Anyone know the answer to this?
