    Has anyone experienced this?

    It seems to me that a P4 could be immune to this... possibly because of the inboard tilt of the rotors?

    I have tried MANY times to induce VRS but cannot. I know it was an issue on previous Phantoms.

    Motor tilt does contribute to distort air flow implicated in VRS and push back critical point where it starts, in combination with descend rates and control adjustments from software monitoring wobbling pattern. Note whole design based on stock blades!

    The P4 also limits the rate of descent not to get in VRS
