    Technically it suppose to go about 35 MPH.
    But I can't see it.
    I've tried GPS mode and of course the A mode. And it just seems like it flies about 3 MPH.
    Am I doing or missing something?

    Thank you

    Got me. I just put the bird up and press the right stick forward. It seems pretty quick to me.

    You turned beginner mode off? I can get about two miles from launch point (10,000 ' +)on a calm day, in well under five minutes and I'm not going full throttle.

    Why do you say it's slow. Visual estimate or recorded speed on the app?

    I see a previous post in which you show a log with you going about 9k feet in about 7 min. That's well over 3 MPH.

    It should be a simple matter to look at the flight data in the app while you're flying or replay in the app afterwards to see what your speed is.

    Still wish it could read MPH instead of M/S.
