RTH not working
I am new to ET.
Just installwd it on my Maxi swift.
Everything works fine but the RTH.
When i engage the rth. The motor stops and the plane glides stabilized down .. not turning back to home...
I tried several times in several hights and los. Even as far as 1500 ft at alt of 750 ft...
I can see FS detected and RTH starts.. but nothing happens other then stoping the motor.
I run the wizard several times.
Please help. What am i doing wrong ?

What sw version are you using?
Can you post your osdpro config file?
Do you have the guardian? or/and other expanders?
Do you have a video with servo deflection showing?

i use 3 position sw for menu.
2 position sw and a knob for the stabilizer gain.
The rth is engaged by a sw that takes the throttle to -120%
It showes the fs detectuon and rth on screen.
And on the simulator i can see the 'h' moving and the servos are moving on the plane. But the 'h' is going around the screen. Not circling the home. But going away ... i waitedalot of time. And the plane got to 6 kilometers ..

Safety Mode Menu: Max Airspeed/VNE 70
Also you may want to try these
Servo Deflections Display yes
Require 3D GPS Fix: yes
Set Maximum HDOP: 1.2 or close to it
Set Minimum Satellite Count. this I set to 9, depends on where you fly to how high you can go... the higher the better
HeadingHold to off untill everything is working
Hope that helps

And yes RTH will not work with out satellites.
lets look at a new txt setup file and see if there anything in there that can help.
when you first turn on the OSD does it give any message like no GPS or waiting for satellites.

Ok. * was because spectrum mode ... this is not goםd. Now sats are back.
But motor still not working in rth mode.

this is not same issue at all.
you have rth ..
when i set rth mode the plane stop the motor to zero and just glide down.
not trying to turn to "home" ...

ok, looks like we got it
now need to field test ...
it had to do with the limits of throttle.
i had the fs of the rc link rx set to -108% of thr
now i changed to +120%
it works like a charm !!
thank you shlomi the king !!!!!!!
after a field test yesterday .. it does work like a charm !
thank you Shlomi.

Before you run the Servo Analysis Wizard, be sure to set the Failsafe position on all channels for Straight and Level Flight.
Then when you go into RTH the OSD wont be fighting a model the has failsafe set for a constant left hand turn.
