As your skills progress and you acquire more self-confidence, you can take over more control inputs, eventually discovering to land with no assistance from the automated system.

Holding Pattern
This beneficial SAFE Plus-exclusive function allows you to "stop briefly" the flight by putting the plane into a GPS-guided holding pattern. When activated with the quick press of a button, the aircraft will instantly go back to a position above the GPS initialization point and circle up until the command is canceled with another quick press of the button. It's an excellent method to securely hand the controls off to a friend or regain visual contact if you ever forget the model.
