My preferred unit of measurement is imperial but the RTH is only in metric. Why?
It's a bug.
That was quick. Do you know if it is an identified and acknowledged as a bug by DJI.
I don't know. It's been like that since the P3 was released.
I'm thinking that maybe the RTH is considered a safety function and they decided to fix the unit of measurement as metric to be consistent when it comes to safty issues.
No .. it's just a bug
I'll take your word for it. Any thoughts as to when the fix will be in. Not a top priority I guess
I just bought a Phantom 3 5 days ago. Te RTH is still like this, displaying metric only. DOes anyone know if there have been any fixes since the August posts above?
This has not been fixed.
It resets to the default of 30m after upgrading F/W too.. remember to check it before each flight.
Move to Canada.
It looks this bug has a very low priority to fix.
We all know how important is the radar but it's so tiny on a side. I gave a suggestion to tap and increase its size but all went down the drain. Obviously low priority item for DJI.
Just by crossing borders, feel for "feet" doesn't vanish
It may be a bug but it remains a fact that RTH is in meters, not feet. Keep that in mind when calculating your RTH height. If you think that you're inputting 300 feet for RTH height, be prepared to watch your phantom go extremely high for RTH!
Problem is I think first of feet, convert it into meters and use.
My RTH height is like 600+ feet cause I put 200 in and haven't changed it yet.
I'm cautious about the RTH height. I generally keep it at 130'. Climbing takes a lot of battery power and if you're low and then go into RTH, you're asking for trouble making the bird climb really high, just because. If needed, it's one thing. But just to have it climb super high when it's not necessary can cause problems if you're not careful.
Like they say...
Give them 2.54 centimeters and they'll take 1.609 kilometers
