Absolutely love how it confirms that its locked on the case.

Just to add to this, sadly the target case must be 100% stationary it will not work if you are drifting :(
So careful when boating.
EDIT
Sean Ozz just reported that for him slight drifting when landing works, so perhaps in my case the current was too fast.

I mean it’s cool, but not really that big of a deal feature that everyone is making it out to be. Hell, the Hubsan Zino does this.

For me it is a nice plus....if the area near the bulls eye is sloping and I can find a nice flat spot to place the case the confirmed landing point feature just makes a "Murphy" that much less possible.
 
Just got my SD2 last week, five flights in so far. I've done a case landing on I think four of those flights, but only twice did I get a yellow target ring on the case. The other three times (the one off-case landing I had I first tried to do a case landing) it would not lock onto the case. In one case despite not giving me the yellow target circle, it did still land on the case. But I had no way of knowing it was correctly targeting it; I just watched it carefully and hoped it was on target and if not I could stop it in time. One time I thought maybe it saw it but it didn't and started to try to land right next to it. The other times I just nudged it on target as it landed.

Is this yellow target ring reliably showing for everyone else?
 
I see it when I land on the case. Sometimes you have to bring the drone low and close to the case. Mine picks it up every time.
 
The times it did not find it, I had tried everything. Everything between low and close to 30' up. No dice.

Also, when the yellow target circle does work, I wish it would show prior to pressing the land command if I'm hovering right over it for a long period. Being that I never know if it's going to work, when I give it the land command I have to be ready to cancel as it quickly descends if it appears it's not going to hit the target.
