    Hi, sorry for what may be a naive sounding question:

    I've been flying a P4 since they came out and doing well with it.

    I have to fly a P3 today -- I'll be using the DJI GO app only.

    Is there any tips or things I should be aware of, as a P4 going to P3 pilot, before I get out there?
    Big differences in anything? Basically similar flight controls and characteristics? Software should look just about the same, right?

    Thanks in advance,

    Yes. If you can fly a P4, you'll have no trouble with the P3.

    So, flew a P3 Pro today.
    Yup, flys mostly like my P3

    Is a little performance but small. Overall a good experience.

    I had one weird and a bit annoying thing happen.

    Took off. Flying
    Around on GPS no problemo - clear sky's and no weird big objects around when I'd get a compass error. Move a little and it'd go away / but I couldn't see anything around that area that could cause it.

    On the 3rd then 4th and last flight suddenly as she was flying along it would announce "Atti mode" and reset then home to that spot. Then a few seconds later, back to gps. Did that several times. Weird... Can't see anything that would do it.

    Fly again tomorrow in entirely different area, let's see if it returns.
