My Z2 went in yesterday. This was about the tenth flight on this wing and it was dialed pretty good. Was trying to test RTH function when all went wrong. Good news is we found the plane, better news is the gopro did not cut off and got all the footage. Bad news, time to build another Z2.

Sorry to see that Ho-Jazz. That is my biggest fear with RTH systems. You pay all the extra money for it to save your plane, then it becomes your undoing.

What system were you using?

Dosd V2. I read sevral posts that claim the stock AP settings work pretty good, Im not sold. Going to add a FY-30A I have to the next build and do more research on proper settings.

I use FY21AP II, and RTH works flawlessly.

So many times I've thought to myself, so which way is the runway? Flicked on RTH and it points straight back home.

I have the same set up. It's 2.5 AUW and flies great. And I was able to repair after crash through the woods. Other than a few LE dings, she looks like new. Z2 is tough enough to fly through the woods, and keep going.

Are you sure your blades were in the right orientation? If they're spinning in reverse that can happen. They look pretty similar to me, just saying...
