    This afternoon, while flying in hilly terrain, my P3A was seen and heard surging forward on it return to 'Home Point. This issue can be seen at 5:04 in the video and continues until I retake manual control.

    This can be a normal function when headwinds pick up. The ESC will automatically speed up the craft to maintain it speed and heading. I have had this happen during many flights especially on similar windy days or over the land to water or hilly areas where wind can follow the terrain. I would be to alarmed.
