Failsafe actions

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

Note, a point "Home location" is valid if it is within 30m of:

• 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 the drone is on the ground and disarmed. Home location will be automatically assigned to the current position upon takeoff.

Emergency return altitude will be used by the drone in case of a failsafe event.

If the current drone altitude is lower than the 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 the 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.

A complete list of failsafe actions can be found and configured in DJI Assistant software. The default settings are as follows:

ConditionBehaviorNotes
GPS signal lossLandHappens when there are less than 6 satellites visible for more than 20 seconds
RC signal lossFinish the mission if the drone is in auto mode and returns home.Return home altitude is defined in the route settings tab.
Low batteryLandSee the autopilot User Manual for more information.

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