Here’s a tip when using a DJI Remote Controller where the on/off button is near the right stick, you have 5 fingers on your right hand, and use the pinch method.

If you are going to fly under a tree canopy, bridge, or some other large object for more that a few seconds...
1) Change your Return To Home setting to “Hover”.
2) Keep any extra, unused, lazy, wandering fingers away from the RC power button to prevent inadvertent shut down.
3) When the maneuver is completed, change the RTH setting back.

( @Made2Phly, Yeah, the tree thing today. Good ending though) ?

Under canopies - a bit tense. Under canopies over water - utmost concentration. Under canopies over water with lazy fingers - maybe fatal. Under canopies over water with lazy fingers with good endings - priceless.
