A test of the "return to launch" feature, which should bring the aircraft back home. It should go up above tree level, move to the gps coordinates of the launch site, hover for 5 seconds in place, and then drop to 2m from the ground and hover there.

Last time I tried this, it flew off in the wrong direction and hit a tree. This time there is more space to see what it tries to do.

It worked pretty much perfectly this time (though on a later run, it went off and tried to land way off mark - so I suspect the gps lock just wasn't accurate enough).
