    I've seen in various videos and posts that the Mavic needs to hover over the takeoff point for a while to capture the ground image for precision landing. One post said as long as 10 seconds. I've noticed that there is an announcement on your phone that the GPS location was recorded for RTH when you take off - is there a similar notification that precision landing has what it needs to perform its function? I have not seen one in the videos so far, but most people seem to just start flying immediately without hovering, so not conclusive. Thanks.

    Per the Mavic manual, there is no need to hover for a specific period of time after taking off. Precision Landing performance is subject to the following conditions:
    • Home point is recorded upon take off, and cannot not be refreshed during flight.
    • Aircraft must take off vertically. Take off altitude must be greater than 10 meters.
    • Home point terrain features remain largely unchanged.
    • Home point terrain with no distinctive features will affect the performance.
    • Lighting conditions cannot be too light nor too dark

    Thanks. I had read that but assumed, like so many other things in the manual, that it was incomplete. Hopefully we will see soon!
