Failsafe action, like "Home location" and "On RC signal loss" can be configured in route parameters menu.

• Initial take-off location,
• Aircraft's current location,
• Remote controller's current location as shown by RC GPS or,
• Mobile device's current location.

Note: new home location will be ignored if drone is on the ground and disarmed. Home location will be automatically assigned to current position upon takeoff.

Emergency return altitude will be used by the drone in case of failsafe event.
If the current drone altitude is lower than Emergency return altitude, the aircraft will adjust its nose direction to face the home point and will go to a specified emergency altitude before returning home.
If the current drone altitude is higher than Emergency return altitude, the aircraft will adjust its nose direction to face the home point and fly home at its current altitude.
Maneuver the aircraft, to avoid any obstacles, when returning home.
Complete list of failsafe actions you can find and configure in DJI Assistant software. The default settings are as follows:

Condition Behavior Notes
GPS signal loss Land Happens when there are less than 6 satellites visible for more than 20 seconds
RC signal loss Finish mission if the drone is in auto mode and return home Return home altitude is defined in route settings tab
Low battery Land See autopilot User Manual for more information

! When creating a flight route, please, pay special attention to a point "Home location" regarding to the route! Point "Home location" must be specified so that if "Fail-safe" condition accures, the drone is able to fly there from any point of the route in straight trajectory, without facing obstacles (buildings, terrain features).
