    How do i turn off the sonar? i am going to record some videos on a beach with medium-sized waves, so it will probably cause some altitude problems if it is enabled and a wave goes under it.
    TIA!

    It's not possible. You can fly in ATTI mode to prevent the Phantom from using the VPS data to correct its altitude or maybe try putting a piece of tape over the sensors. I haven't tried the latter, but a few people here said it did the trick.

    It is totally possible. Can't remember where it is exactly but it's in the settings in the app somewhere. I just had to turn mine off last week for a shoot

    I wonder why they made that change.

    No idea. Here's to hoping it returns soon.

    They should of called g mode ip mode, for idiot proof. I guess DJI thought the P4 was gonna be a noob magnet so they added some unimportant features for seasoned pilots and took away any features that could mess with anything. PS I do like the P4 it's just I'm crazy.
