    I turned the braking down to 50% and find my p3A is much nicer to fly! It just cruises to a fairly quick stop, rather than rearing up & stopping almost instantly, as soon as you let the sticks go. If I really want to stop that quickly, opposite stick does it in a proportional manner.

    I've seen people mention adjusting the braking before but I haven't messed with mine. It does stop very harshly now, I will adjust and see if I like the change.

    Same here, I used to use down stick if I needed to stop real fast with the P2 but the P3 stops almost to fast, might have to try 75% and see how that is. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Where do you adjust this in the app?

    If have to look but I think it's in the gain and expo area?
    I set mine to 70.

    Yes it is. Swipe up when looking at the expo screen & it is below that.

    I did this and slowed them down to much, had the bird coming in hot, hit the brake and she slid 3 feet into a potted tree. They make good trimmers. She was OK just nicked up props.

    Yeah - I have been noticing the hard stop - but it hasn't bothered me too much because it doesn't translate to the video because the gimbal corrects for it. However, it is a bit jarring the first time you experience it.

    I was used to flying helis, and the only braking in those is opposite stick. I just find it much smoother to fly like this. Softer on the controls is how I would put it.

    I stand corrected - I had originally tried 50% & it was ok, but discover that I eventually left it at 75%

    Soz ( :rolleyes: ) for being late... It was 30 ...Tahoe Ed suggested a few for me. That one is fine but you just have to remember she slides in the air a bit.
