    Do you use multiple flight modes including atti and if so why?

    When I was flying today I switched to atti but it stayed on GPS.. Then I saw that my multiple flight mode was disabled (pilot update?)

    Also, if I don't use atti, do you still think it's good to have it as an option to control the quad if things get hairy, or will the p3 auto switch if it realizes something's wrong with its GPS sensors?

    You need to enable "Mutliple Flight Mode" in the DJI Pilot application in order for the PAF switch to work. Otherwise, you'll always be in P-mode. It's a good idea to enable it. That way you can switch to ATTI to override the GPS if needed.

    Plus. if you are into video, using IOC means that you can fly straight up a street, for example, while rotating the Phantom to focus on a particular building as you pass it by. Nice feature.

    Isn't there a new setting in the app to do that now?
