    I was flying my phantom standard this evening using the DJI GO app, and I noticed that on the map where the home point is marked there is a straight yellow line between the home point marked on the map and the drone as it’s flying and the line keeps following the drone. Has that yellow line always been there and I never noticed it before, or is that something new in the DJI GO app.

    Oh, I guess I just never noticed it before, or don't pay much attention to that map after the home point has been set.

    The route that I've already flown is white and then there is a straight yellow line between the drone and the home point. It's the map in the lower right corner of the DJI Go app while you are flying the drone. I guess that yellow line has always been there and I just didn't notice it. This evening is the first time I ever noticed it. If you want to bring the drone home, all you have to do is follow the yellow line.

    I get a white line for route flown, and a green line which is the straightest route back home , very handy, very seldom use RTH now,

    Should be the route you've flown.

    This is a picture with 3 screenshots taken during my flight. The route that I have flown is the white line and the yellow or orange line is a straight line from the home point to the drone while it is in flight and the line keeps following the drone. When the RTH is activated the line turns to green. All I'm saying is I never noticed the yellow or green line from the home point to the drone. ScreenShot_4-6-16.jpg

    Thank you for pointing out the difference between the line being green or orange. You would think that would be in the manual, but no I just wasted 3 hrs of my life trying to find this simple basic piece of information.

    I would have sworn the RTH line used to be green all the time and then I noticed it was orange and of course was wondering what changed :)

    Too bad DJI doesn't see a need to have a manual that explains the features of the app.
