Mavic Air RTH Malfunction!

Hi all,

I recently had a good flight with my DJI Mavic Air until I selected RTH and the drone just immediately landed without returning to the home point. The drone’s landing was 24 inches away from an ice cold river!!

I checked the flight logs and I don’t seem to have mucked up the Homepoint setting. Can anyone tell me what could have gone wrong? (new drone user btw).

Flight logs:


You tapped the auto land icon instead of the RTH icon. This is a common mistake since they are right next to one another. See more details here.


Yeah seems this is user error.

Thank you for your quick response.


Excellent summary of all the things to be aware of while launching, flying, and landing a DJI aircraft! :+1::+1:
