I was flying between two mountain peaks at about 2000 ft distance when the signal became weak. I attempted to turn around and return closer. I completely lost video feed and heard the voice warning of "..signal lost...returning to launch point...". I let the Drone take over and fly back to better signal strength. I was then able to press "X" on the controller and regain control.
This is an example of the safety features built into the GoPro Karma drone. The reason this featured saved Karmie was because I took the time to calibrate the drone on site before launch. I also gave the controller a few extra moments before take off to "lock" on to more GPS satellites...if that is really a thing or just Karma Voodoo .
