    Hi guys,

    today i tested that option: "Set the current aircraft position as a new home point"

    i tought that if you save this point, go ahead, and press RTH it should bring the aircraft exactly to that saved point, at the same altitude, but it doesnt!

    It brings to the new point, but it starts to land until the ground, and not until the altitude that you saved before.

    is it right????

    Home Point is considered to be (on) the ground below the aircraft at time of setting.

    Setting the Home Point in mid-air does not change this.

    It will try to land once it is at the GPS location for Home.
