How can you tell if you're in FCC or CE mode on the P2?

    I just switched from the Vision and the RX made 2 beeps when powering it up in FCC mode. With the P2, my RX doesn't make any sounds and has a solid red light instead of solid green like on the P2V. How do you know what mode it's in. I didn't see any reference to this in the P2 manual like I did in the P2V manual. Thanks!!

    The controller on the p2 is silent & it's on 2.4 doesn't have FCC mode not like the vision

    Thanks for the reply! So does the screw in the back of the controller do nothing if turned?

    Does this mean that the 2.4ghz has a shorter range than an FCC enabled PV2 ?

    Is a stupid question :p P2 have 1.000 m range so is bigger as P2V one in any mode. Allways 2.4 Ghz will be better than 5.8 Ghz. Lower frequence better signal. P2 is not P2V so don't use your screw drive in any hole :)

    What if I already turned it Clockwise? What did I just screw up? I've flown to 500m before but am paranoid I screwed something up now!

    I turned the screw on the back of my P2 Transmitter, and Colin Guinn got fired....
