Thanks Dave for all of your input. I have tried raising the quad in the air to let it think it was flying and that didn't help. I moved it 30 feet away and that did not help. I am afraid to try and fly this until I can get this resolved. I have seen some videos how to test this function but it doesn't work with my set up. Like I said it shows going into failsafe but it just disarms and never shows RTL is activated. Thanks again Dave for all of your help.
