Return manually or automatically?

Return manually or automatically?

Automatic return is actually a foolproof operation, where the aircraft will fly to a specified return altitude according to the system's settings, then fly towards the return point, and finally descend.

 

In fact, the purpose of the return flight is only to retrieve the drone, so there is absolutely no need to follow this logic. In many cases, it is faster and less labor intensive to return manually. Also, if the flyer is not operating from a fixed location, but from a moving vehicle or boat. In this case, the auto-return will fly towards the takeoff point. There is a kinetic energy to refresh the return point in the remote control page, so you can manually refresh the return point when your position moves.

 

What should I do if the drone has no signal?

 

Take two direct steps to avoid obstacles between you and the drone.

 

Try to point your remote control directly in the direction of the drone, when the signal is the strongest. Also, you can choose a 5.8G signal for flying in the city to avoid interference. Outdoors choose 2.4G signal to strengthen the transmission. If you are prompted to lose the airplane, it's okay, wait a few seconds, the drone will automatically return to the flight after losing the connection, and you will be able to receive the signal after a while.

 

If you want to further enhance the aircraft signal, you can consider adding a yagi antenna and signal booster.
