    So, you take off in P mode and say get to where you want to do a POI or Waypoint shot and go to F. You complete that. At what point should you switch it back to P mode? Is that necessary for when you are bringing it in, or for RTH to work?

    Yep, I saw and bookmarked that yesterday. But my question is really what you do AFTER using the intelligent flight modes. Is it then necessary to go back to P mode to bring your aircraft back in, and will RTH only work if it is in P mode?

    You can fly your aircraft back in any flight mode. RTH works in any flight mode.

    Got it... so you don't give anything up by being out of P mode then?

    Maybe just some FPV real estate.
