    Hi there,

    Has anyone already experience with the new failsafe mode which dji has announced with "In a Failsafe situation, if less than 6 GPS satellites are found for more than 20 seconds, the aircraft will descend automatically."
    Does this occoure also if the P2V gets out of range from the TX?

    Pllease give me a advice

    Thanks Andreas

    It should only happen when the P2V is out-of-range and less than six satellites are found. If the control signal is lost, the P2V will enter fail-safe mode. If it has a lock on six or more satellites, it will return-to-home then land. Otherwise, it will just land.
