    Hey guys! I have a quick question as a new P3P owner. How accurate is the logbook in DJI GO? It seems like the flight time is longer than the app is showing. Where does it get the time data for the flight time? Also, on the main screen on the left side (the "all about me" spot, there is a definite error in that it says top altitude is 1.09FT - LOL. In the logs it shows my top altitude is 371ft.

    2 other random questions -
    1)How often do you replace props? Or is it just when they show damage...
    2) When looking straight up at the bird when it is high up I sort of get dizzy Is this something that will pass in time? I am fine unless it is right overhead, so I just use FPV then.

    You only need to replace them if they are damaged. Check them carefully for signs of damage before each flight.

    The DJI Go flight viewer/log can be quite inaccurate for some reason. I've had it show me going 50+ mph on flights when I was in P mode the whole time without much wind.

    Are you on iOS or android? I found the latest android version of Dji go to be very buggy In the flight log section. I run 2.8.1 and have no issues.

    I am running android, but plan on buying an iPad mini soon to run it. Is 2.8.1 the app release #?
