The other day I took my Phantom Drone out for a spin around the Potomac River. I made quite a few flights thanks to my multiple batteries and thanks to the auto-return function I didn’t lose it. During two of the flights, I completely lost where I was 😦 All I can say is thank you GPS, just turn off the controller and the drone returns to where it was launched.
I was able to get a pretty good shot of the sunset over the Potomac River. Notice in the video the difference of the Virginia side of the river and the Maryland side of the river. I am flying the drone from the Virginia side to help you orient your observations.
