    Hi. For what I have read the quad will ascend to 200' to RTH if it is bellow. Today I notice that mine RTH at about 86' and do not ascend. What can be the reason for this? :?:

    It ascends to 20 meters above original launch elevation. If flying higher than that elevation, it just flies home at current level and descends.

    You can RESET your home point once in the air though.

    If I am going for long runs over hills and trees I always raise phantom up to about 100' and then reset home point. So it will raise to 100+66' and then fly home if I RTH. 166' should clear everything for me.
