Loiter down speed

I would like to lower the loiter down speed.  I can't find where this can be done.  I am running 3.2.1 firmware.  It used to be done with WP_NAV_DOWN apparently this will only work during a mission now.  Is there an adjustment?Thank you for any help.See More

APM 3.0  I rechecked it 3 times.  I got a RTL with the mAh setting but when I removed it and set up the low voltage it doesn't work.  Anyone seen this?Thanks for any help. See More

"FYI   Make sure you have the units on your taranis set to metric.  Had mine on imperial and got a lot of crazy readings.  Working great!  Thanks again Rolf."
