1. It depends on what your flight controller or gimbal stabilizer allows. Some certainly allow you to control it from the TX using POTs

2. It depends on the weight of your craft and what you're currently flying with now. Also bear in mind it's only going to get worse when you add a gimbal and camera. It won't usually land on it's own but I supposed it could if you pulled a failsafe or RTL switch on your TX.

In most cases you want to have battery voltage (preferably at the cell level) reported back to you over some sort of telemetry link so you know when it's time to land. Failing that a low voltage alarm on the quad itself and failing that a timer on your TX
