    I lose total signal. Video and RC. No green led on the AC.
    The drone will initiate rth.
    What if during that moment i press RTH button on the RC.
    Drone is coming back, remote reconnects, led turns green(but no video signal still). Will the RTH initiated by me when there was totally no rc signal, cancel the RTH iniiated by drone after no signal for couple of seconds? (So drone stops somewhere. Green led on rc but no video signal

    The RTH button on the remote controller won't do anything if you press it while the remote controller is disconnected from the Phantom.

    No. The remote controller does not queue up failed commands and play them back later.

    the last time I used RTH besides the controller beeping I had a red circle with a white cross on the left side of my screen, is this normal?

    Yes, allows you to cancel RTH when pressed
