    It is a simple one I'd test myself but my bird is @ DJI for bad horizon claim.

    So, will RTH kick in if RC signal is lost during auto-land procedure initiated from app? (Assuming that drone is more than 100ft away and battery is above 10%)

    I don't have a P3, but from what I've read in posts on here, the auto-land function over-rides the RTH function. However, each time I read the post (always from a reputable member), the word "should" is used rather than "will." "The aircraft should auto-land."

    Let's make a distinction between auto-land initiated by critical battery and assisted auto-landing initiated by operator via app. I'm interested in operator initiated one.

    Yes - that's what I'm referring to, too.
