    I'd like to be able to change the video quality settings via the C1 or C2 buttons in order to have less quality but better range when flying far away, but when closer be able to easily switch to a higher quality setting when closer.

    How can that be done?

    Interestingly, I don't see any discernible difference on both iOS and android between 10 and 4mbs, so I just leave it on 4. Might be different on a Pro though, I'm using an Advanced.

    I think P3A FPV video is limited to 2Mbps. The adjustable bitrate between 4Mbps and 10Mbps only applies to P3P.

    Yes, thought so. I find the video quality perfectly acceptable though, even at 2mbs.

    Yeah me too, on my 9.7" Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. Only people flying with FPV goggles or HDMI output to big screen would want P3P's higher video downlink bitrate.
