    Looks high in the tree. How did you retrieve it?

    If you had waited for it to lock onto at least 6 sats and set the Home Point before flying off, it would have returned to you instead of auto-landing straight down into a tree.

    Sorry. I do not understand the term "auto-tower". Is that a truck with a bucket at the end of a mechanical arm? We call them "Cherry Pickers" here in the U.S.

    Why would you fly with only 2 sats?

    21 bucks!
    That is cheap.
    Here in the US, it would cost 10 times that just to get them to come out...LOL
