I have a new P4P v2 and one nagging question I have had for years but never found an answer concerns accidentally stopping the motors during flight. Here it is: If I lower altitude by bringing the left stick all the way down, will it kill the motors and cause a crash? On the ground, it does stop the motors but it seems ridiculous to have that happen in the air. If I need to lower altitude quickly, the natural tendency is to pull the left stick all the way down but, on the ground, the motors stop turning even before the stick hits bottom. I have my P4P set to stop motors in an emergency by lowering the left stick all the way to the inside and pushing the RTH button at the same time. Not going to test it. But I would like to have confidence that, if I hit bottom on the left stick in flight, that the motors would not stop turning. If they did, that seems like a serious and dangerous design flaw but no way to test it without risking a $2,000 crash. Any input is appreciated.
