    It's a rookie question

    Can P3A disarm while flying if i use the same method i used to activate the props?(both sticks down and in the center)

    This guy says that is the first mistake rookies do...Rookie mistake #1

    Yes, you can do a CSC while flying. That's by design though :)

    Yes CSC will stop the motors suddenly and flying aircraft will fall from sky to ground.

    Read the manual, page 46 "Do not perform a CSC when the aircraft is in midair, otherwise the motors will suddenly stop"

    That's just one of the many interesting and useful things you find in the manual.

    Yeah, They put it in flight "Manual" As in RTFM...

    But You see, many feel it's an Automatic!! ;-)

    They never learned manually, only by trial and error like a multiple choice quiz.
    Or figure Nintendo taught them how to fly already. Haha
