    I've had my P3P for about 2 months now. No crashes so far but I have been very cautious. As my confidence grows my cautious approach is sure to fade. Are there certain manuevers that can result in a tumbling crash? How about certain stick combinations, i.e. Yaw and roll at the same time, descend and roll together, that should not be attempted? And if things start to go bad will letting go allow the bird to recover and just hover in place? Thanks.

    Just don't attempt to fly it like a racing quad and all should be well. It's a flying camera :)

    My advice would be to turn the vision positioning system off sometimes.
    I've seen a few vids of crashes because it detected something and caused the phantom to ascend unexpectedly resulting in the props hitting something.
    If your flying near something on a slope though it can help you follow the angle of the slope so leave it on.
