    Hello everyone,
    I was wondering if anyone had random GPS locking issues on their P3? Sometimes I will get a lock seconds after turning on, then others it will be mid flight when I see the number of GPS go up from zero. Other times I will drain battery and after second or third charge it will start locking again. This is happening even after calibrating the compass, reguardless of where I'm at. I do not have this issue with my Inspire at the exact same locations. Not sure if it related but my battery readings will also lag and not show until my GPS readings start coming in.
