Mavic Mini | How To Use The Smart Return To Home Feature


By enabling Smart RTH you can bring your aircraft back to the home point safely at any point during your flight. Before taking off, set an RTH altitude in the Safety section of the app The RTH altitude should be set within the range provided and it should be higher than any nearby structures. When the aircraft is further than 20 meters from a recorded home point tap the RTH icon on the left side of the screen and the aircraft will land or return to home automatically Press and hold the RTH icon in the app or the RTH button on the top left of the remote controller the aircraft will automatically return to home When the aircraft is less than 20 meters away from the home point tap the icon on the left side of the screen and you will see a landing icon Tap this icon and the aircraft will land automatically When the aircraft’s flight altitude is lower than the preset RTH altitude the aircraft will ascend to the RTH altitude and then fly straight back to the home point When the aircraft’s flight altitude is higher than the preset RTH altitude the aircraft will fly straight back to the home point When it arrives above the home point it will land automatically and turn off its motors. When encountering an emergency you can tap the “X” icon on the left side of the screen or press the Flight Pause and RTH button on the top left of the remote controller to disable the RTH The aircraft will hover in place after the RTH is disabled allowing you to control the aircraft manually

  1. Big oops DJI….the legal height of drone usage is 120 metres… you need to address this in your video as you are giving out illegal information

  2. I'll use any feature when you fix your damn app, i have a galaxy s10 and cant use the drone! Thank you dji !

  3. Dear DJI, I cant use my mavic mini with my samsung s10+ android 10 phone as the app is not working. Could you please give me feedback on this? I believe I'm not the only one..like for the visibility pls.

  4. Warning this function is know to not work some times, more and more people are losing the mini with no wind, I'm one of them, full GPS full WIFI signal and home point updated and away she went, 40 % battery and drifted 1/4 miles away into the forest, this happened twice so far, I hope the bug gets fixed

  5. I have a few videos on my channel if anyone is interested what the footage looks like, i do upscale to 4k from 2.7 for youtube to actually allow the bitrate higher but unfortunately i can not fly my drone anymore since the android 10 or Q update, sad really DJI have had time to fix it and prepare for it but… haven't, and for a estimated 30day shipping due to "overwhelming orders" they seem to not care to keep them customers by allowing such a vast issue to prolong this much.

  6. what happens if i took off from a high vantage point and flew downwards and then i press RTH? does it rise my defined rth altitude only or does it add the additional negative altitude that i flew down
