The speed for the P3 should be the same as for the P4 (except the P4 has Sport mode)
Your top speed should be about 16 metres/sec or 35 mph

Maybe it's just perception, but I avoid high speed just to keep the stress off the AC, especially during stops. Hard stops can lead to stress cracks.

Yes I did think perception but not sure at moment, going out soon
Yes me p34k had some motor cracks but other drones were ok,any fast flying I do I always slow down nice, never come to a hard stop unlike Mavic pilot up the street,,thanks for tip though:)

HI again just went test,,,not get past 30.9,put it through its paces low and high,amazed to at the mod I did to my rc,it perform well ,could have easily flown out of sight which this has never done before,,,almost hit a tree so that was lucky,got no extras on it so weight should be ok,mayby it just old ??after today's flight I'm bit happier with it,lol,this p4 panel and 5.8 antenna work awsome,
