    Homelock in ATTI mode.

    I tested homelock in ATTI mode today as I have heard people say that ATTI allows a higher return speed. Now this has always confused me as ATTI mode disable GPS lock. Anyway I found that Homelock in ATTI does not work. The quad does not return home it just fly's backwards which is not necessarily to your home position.

    Just thought I would put this out there.
    I fly Phantom 2 with Gopro 3 Black, Zenmuse, Imersion RC600, Black Pearl Monitor.

    "People" who've made this claim probably flew straight away, did not change the Phantom's orientation, put it in ATTI HomeLock, and then pulled back on the right stick ... and it flew straight back. Of course it did ... it was still pointed directly away from them.

    Without GPS on, the Phantom does know where it is. How could know what direction to go to get back to the home point?
