    As topic, is it still possible to use failsafe (RTH) when in ATTI mode?

    ATTI Mode for the Phantom would be if the bird had less than six satelites. Regardless of the controler switch positions, the bird will not know where home is.
    On the other hand, if you were flying in ATTI mode and the bird had 6 or more satelites when you trigger a RTH, the bird will return to home.

    That would automatical activate failsave/RTH.

    Unless you where flying GPS (Ground Station); in which case it would continue the programmed flight.

    The OP was talking flying in ATT mode, not in Groundstationmission mode.
    I would appriciate if you wouldn't confuse people/newbies with 'wiseguy-talk'.

    Just curious...is there a reason that he should care what you "appreciate"?

    Perhaps.....walks on the beach....kissing a tiger.....scratching an itch.....having a frosty.....copping a feel. Lots of things to appreciate
