FPV QuadCopter Naza RTH Tests Switch Activated & Turn Off Radio (5 min 48 sec)

All Tests Successful
1.Autonomous Flight
2. Return To Home
3. Landing
This means 2 critical things for safety
1. If I ever lose video while flying FPV I can flip a switch and quad will fly back and land autonomously at its take off point.
2. If i ever lose Control signal the quad will fly back and land autonomously at its take off point.
*Of Note*
It appears margin of error in GPS guidance is with in 2 meters of the take off point

Autonomous Fail Safe Flight Parameters.

2. Return To GPS coordinates recorded at take off.
3. Hover 10 secs attempt to make signal link if no link detected descend slowly and land.
