    hey everyone. I searched and couldn't really find an answer. I just bought a PS3 yesterday, used but you can't even tell. When I was testing it the home worked great. I went to a park and calibrated it and when I hit RTH it landed about 20-25 feet away. Anyone know why it didn't land closer?

    If your Phantom is within 20m of the home point, it'll land at its current location when you initiate RTH.

    My RTH distance varies up to about 20 feet. The best I have had is 18 inches away.

    He's taking about it landing without returning to the home point flyboy73.

    If the phantom is within 20m from the home point, it will just land when you rth.
