    I downloaded it and read it. I was surprised by some of the stuff I read, such as:

    When in GPS mode and the GPS signal is lost for 3 seconds, it goes into ATTI mode.

    When the motor cutoff is in "Immediate" mode (the default), holding the throttle at less that 10% for 3 seconds shuts off the motors. When the motor cutoff is in "Intelligent" mode, this puts the quad into landing mode and no controls except the throttle work.

    If the IOC flying requirement is not satisfied, the autopilot will quit IOC control mode

    If in Home Lock and the GPS signal becomes bad, it switches into ATTI mode.

    I didn't understand Receiver Advanced Protection Mode was - now I do and it changes the Failsafe function.

    Height limit functions whether in GPS or ATTI mode, distance limit only in GPS mode

    GPS accuracy - vertical - plus or minus .8 meters horizontal - plus or minus 2.5 meters

    You are correct.

    But people associate it with just NAZA-M mode and don't realize it talks about the basic system.

    Good stuff in there.

    So I am not clear on the "Immediate" vs. "Intelligent" mode thing. What's the difference between the two? Is it referring to IOC....or NAZA mode?

    Top, right hand side, of the Phantom Assistant 'View' page in the 'Motor' field.... 'Cut Off Type'

    It should be defaulted to 'intelligent'.

    In Immediate mode, holding the throttle at less than 10% for 3 seconds will shut the motors down, even if the quad is flying.

    In Intelligent mode, it will only shut them down if the quad is sitting on the ground.

    The NAZA manual said Immediate is default.

    I think that refers to if you buy the NAZA-M module standalone. I know in my P2V+ the default mode is intelligent. Probably set that way at the factory. Probably would be a lot more crashes if the P2s defaulted to Immediate.

    Intelligent off...

    Is this option even available in the recent versions of firmware/assistant that download with the Phantoms? Don't you have to load another NAZA version of the assistant to get the option?

    Haha I couldnt have said it better myself. I gave up on reading their literature a long time ago. Its woefully written. I learned from more experienced flyers from this site, and from youtube of course ;)
