Last weekend I did a short test what happens if you shut down Mavic Mini's controller in mid-flight. Same should happen in case the drone is out of controller's range.
Good to know, if the zone is not proper to land, the Mini will just hover about 2meters above the take-off pont.

See manual p.13:
after 11 seconds without connection RTH is automatically initiated and "The aircraft cannot return to the Home Point if the GPS signal is weak or unavailable. If the GPS signal become weak or unavailable after RTH is triggered, the aircraft will hover in place for a while, and then start landing."

You're a very brave man! As much as we know DJI implements these "fail safe" features, it stresses us out everytime we see an experiment like this!! Very good to be able to confirm it does, in fact work!

Thanks for the test. Now I know what will happen when I "accidently" disconnect.
