    I am sure the answer is on here, but I couldn't find a detailed explanation...

    Thank you

    The only things I can think of to ensure RTH works properly is to make sure you set the RTH height higher than any possible obstacles in the area and make sure you have a good GPS lock so the home point gets set correctly.

    To test, just take off, fly out a comfortable distance, then hit the RTH button in the app and see if it works.

    Also, make sure you fly at least 66 ft (20m) from the home point. Otherwise, your Phantom will land at its current location.
