    I believe from gps cruise mode if you drop below 6 sats it will hover in atti mode until either >6 sats are restored or, until battery runs out or, there is control override such as rth or atti toggle. If battery drops below 2nd threshold it will auto land.

    But even if you perform a control override, if you have less than 6 sats it will hover in ATT or land as you described. Since it does not have gps information, it can not track to home point

    I'm sure this is obvious information, but just wanted to clarify.
