When I was flying my P2V+ and didn't want to land it I just grabbed my phantom P2
And used the power on-off button on the battery to stop my phantom.

Ideal when on a boat or another not so good landing surface area.

But with my P3P this is not possible anymore?!?
It won't go power off with the battery button......

Is it me? or did they changed this option

Your best option is to catch it by the legs, and then hold the left stick full down...it will shut down in 3 seconds. (Saves getting your fingers anywhere near the props!)

It should shut down on the battery button by giving one short push and then hold the button down, but I think the throttle option is safer.

Battery button? I think most of us just pull the left stick down until it powers off, why would you even attempt to shut it off with power button?

+1. Trying to get near the battery with props spinning isn't safe!

Have you ever tried it before posting it here?

My advice is ABSOLUTELY NO TO THIS

I'm not advocating doing it....I was answering the OP's question as to whether it worked. Personally, I think it's too dangerous...but, yes, it works.
