Changing the Home Point Location Using GS RTK or DJI Pilot 2


During your flight, circumstances may require you to land in a different location. Changing the Home Point is a convenient way to avoid risky landings without controlling the aircraft to adjust your landing manually. This article is for the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise (M3E), the DJI Matrice 300 RTK (M300), the DJI Matrice 350 RTK (M350), or the DJI Phantom 4 RTK drone.

While the drone is in flight, from the live camera or map view, tap the three dots in the top right corner.

The Home Point Settings are at the top of the settings list within the Flight Controller Settings menu.

There are two options to alter the Home Point location. Option 1 will set the current aircraft position as the new home point. Option 2 will set the current remote controller position as the new home point.

Option 1: Current aircraft position

When to use current aircraft position 

Example scenario:

Your aircraft is on the far end of your large job site, and you get a low battery warning. While it may have enough battery to Return-to-Home across the large site, you would like to play it safe and land immediately on the far side. 

Solution: 

Pause the mission, ensure the area under the aircraft is safe for landing, then change the Home Point and initiate Return-to-Home. 

 

When to use current remote controller location

Example scenario: 

After takeoff, a vehicle parked over the Home Point from which the aircraft took off.

Solution: 

With the controller in hand, you can relocate to a new landing site and change the Home Point instead of moving the vehicle. 

 

The aircraft will land at the updated Home Point location when Return-to-Home is initiated.
