    hi guys, pardon me if this was asked and answered before. I just got my Mavic and it's my first drone. Flew it outside my house for 4 times and I can't seem to get RTH working. Out of 4 times I only get RTH to work on the very first try.

    I did the wait-for-5-seconds after take off thing but when i flew the drone the RTH option is missing. When I tap "land" it only gives me the "land here" option.

    Is there anything I did wrong?

    Wow, you were lucky, could have landed anywhere ;-) good reminder to read the manual though and glad you figured it out.

    Also, you have to be a certain distance away for RTH to work. You can't Just fly it ten feet and hit the button.

    To clarify, RTH will still work no matter how close the Mavic is to the home point. If it's not more than 16 feet away though, it will auto land at its current location instead of flying back to the home point.
