    Keep your Wi-Fi on if you are connected to it and using it for maps. Keep the Bluetooth off to save battery life you don't need it.
    Wants to maps have loaded you can also turn the Wi-Fi off to reduce battery life draining also.

    BT should not affect flight. Questionable if WiFi would. I'm of the opinion that it could but again, no certain answer to this. I think it's unlikely and fly with mine on. The P3 tx operates on the 2.4GHz band and so does most WiFi. So the WiFi _might_ cause an issue with the signal. But WiFi has 11-14 channels and the P3's tx has 8.
