    Hi everone. I was recently flying over a very hilly area. I noticed that as soon as stopped moving the drone it would lower. It's weird because sometime it lowers and you loose sight of your drone :(

    Let me know what you think

    Is this with your P3P? If so, does it only occur when you are flying close to the ground? If so, try disabling VPS.

    I heard this was only a problem with p4. There are threads about this issue. I don't know if it is fixed yet through a firmware update but my guess is that it will be fixed soon. This is pretty annoying.

    Yip I think it has something to do with the VPS. I believe the drone lowers because for it it doesn't make sense that there could such a big difference in altitude if you haven't done anything.
