Hi Guys

Slowly getting to grips with my new P3 but noticed an issue last night, I was flying and noticed the distance from the controller in the corner of the screen to be way out, I had her pretty high in the sky and it was reporting 90ft from me which couldn't be right! Is this a reason to calibrate it via software, I never calibrated it other than for each flight. When I brought her down it was a little more accurate but even then when next to each other kept flashing 3ft apart when it wasn't.

Hope someone can help, thank you

Before you start trying to fix this .....
Do you realise that the distance from you shown in the app is the horizontal distance?
The app shows height & horizontal distance - no-one cares what the length of the other side of the triangle is.
You can have the P3 100 feet up above you and the horizontal distance might only read 6 feet.
Play with it a bit and it will make sense.
