"Eben, in UgCS for DJI app you can activate emulation mode for your drone in HIL mode (hardware in the loop). In such case you will get almost same behavior as in real flight. Connect your drone to the UgCS as usual, next go to menu in UgCS for DJI…"

Return Home results in copter flying to max possible altitude over home point

I've now experienced (in emulator) that the copter will fly to max allowable altitude once it returns home following pushing the 'return home' button. This would obviously not be desired if the RTL was due to the battery being low for example. Any ideas of why this is happening and how to fix it? I've attached the mission .xml here and a pic of where the drone ends up. Very strange.…See More

"This will do the trick. https://github.com/PX4/Firmware/pull/5745 Backtracks the rtl along the same path so no mucking around with altitudes. Should be ground software independent. What vehicles are you flying with and what hardware/stacks?"
