    Heard a lot of mixed answers on this so I figured I would give it a shot today. Went out roughly a mile. On the way back I maxed out at 35.3 then flipped it to ATTI and it climbed up to 40.9. So yes, it does, at least for my phantom today. I heard it was only a p2 thing. Today it worked for my P3.

    I live in southeast Michigan! It was a super clam day so flying was a breeze! Didn't even notice a difference from GPS to ATTI.

    Only difference beside speed to me is if your cruising and let go of the sticks it keeps drifting before stopping.. instead of just slamming on the brakes into a hover.

    Yes I agree, it does stop a lot softer. Yesterday on a thread I read you can change your braking speed. I'm assuming it's in the DJI App but not sure. He said 70%-75% was an ideal number.

    DJI advertises the top speed in ATTI mode too: "16 m/s (ATTI mode, no wind)"
