Thousands controllers have this feature, people are using it and still happy.
I will not fly above people, but people will walk below.

Thanks all. I forced to switch to Naza back.

I found piece of code with action on Failsafe. It looks very simple and I will try to make action on FS configurable. It is not too hard as I think before.

For me the number of lemmings is not of interest. I live in a country where we have some regulations regarding to use of airspace, insurance etc... I'm simply not allowed "to put" my model aircraft (as I don't own a "drone") into an autonomous flight mode if I'm out of sight/control nor would my insurance take care of anything what happens after this action. Somebody would take care of me if it fails...and they wouldn't ask what idea/reason I had for this.
Sh*t happens ... you remember this 3-D-heli pro parkfly who killed himself by hitting his neck or head with rotor during a low pass in a public park?

Everybody is happy until somebody pays, the price of the copter doesn't play a role here. Nobody took care about us "big children with RC toys" until some *****les made fpv flights over nuclear power plants in france or other official buildings/sessions in different countrys. Now I heard of political discussions to force a registration for "privat drones" ...

That s**cks....

PS: Sorry, bad mood. Again bad weather at the weekend... ;-)

Thanks brat02 for looking into making this configurable. Do you have an estimate on when this might be available for testing?

I`m sorry, but no news. I switched to Autoquad M4. M4 flies well and RTH already exists and working nicely! No any problems with position hold and failsafe events.

I know you have been asking for more feedback on RTH and PH before implementing a easy setup for setting it on failsafe. What type of feedback are you looking for? I have set up a f450 frame with a brainFPV controller using a ublox m8n GPS and internal Mag (I have a good distance from power) instead of external. I usual test to see if north is north when i fly. I have been able to use PH and RTH successfully on 3 separate occasions. Before I put my FPV gear on I use PH and it lets me test out how it's doing at that location. It would be nice to have failsafe with a RTH. Let me know what else is needed for feedback I will continue to test the functionality. I am currently using the complementary attitude filter as recommended till ins is fixed.
