@dr0n3droid - Wouldn't it depend on your fail-safe settings? I configured mine to RTL…"
"I gave it a quick test flight with my Y6 and it worked better than I expected for a short test! What took me a minute was to determine that the RC control needed to be in Guided mode for Follow Me on Droidplanner to work.
