Will setting limits stop runaways?

    I have set limits on my quads to 30m high and 100m distance.
    I cant see more than that easily in each direction so I don't see the need for the massive distance :)
    My mate had a couple of runaways recently which were more down to pilot error than anything but I did wonder that if he had set some distance limits would the Phantom still have obeyed them if it were to runaway again?

    I don't think my mates problem was a real flyaway though,I think he was in ATTI mode without realising at the time so more pilot error.
    I assume that the limits you set would work in any flight mode though,GPS or ATTI?

    Thanks,still potentially a bum clenching situation then even if you set limits :)
