    How many of you DONT have problems with your P4 ? Im one of the lucky ones that hasn't had any issues with mine and was wondering if i was just lucky or there are lots just like me. And if they can make one perfect'ish why not all ?

    I didn't noticed any major issues in my P4 for 2 months now,
    Only one issue and I think it's a common one

    Is when you you switch to sport mode and make hard turn you notice the gimbal doesn't work fine,

    I believe we all have this issue, but I'm not a sport mode fan & never use it, I think sport mode is bad and may harm the p4

    Soo for me, it's all fine

    No, I dont use sport mode either, should think the gimbal would be susceptible to the extra forces of it.

    P4 flies fine but as with just about all of them it has horizon issues & the battery still falls far short of claimed run time. I'd take a P3 Pro or Advanced over a P4 any day...

    If I really looked and studied all the threads here, I'm sure I could find something wrong or to complain about about mine, but I haven't and I haven't. It's an evolving hobby and there's always something going sideways. So far, I've been very pleased with my P3 and my P4 and I've been in the hobby for 25 years and had a quad since the first major commercial BnF (the 350QX) came out.

    There's a lot more of that than most here will ever admit. ;)

    Out of the box, my phantom was perfect. My first real rc craft. Any issues I have had were most likely operator error or self inflicted. Couple of hard landings, a messy firmware update (some sort of computer crash, or dropped connection).

    I had yoyo and a sometimes tilted gimbal. Since the latest upgrade no more yoyo and the gimbal is level. Only one 17 minute flight in 15mph winds. s mode 40 mph and all was good, time will tell if it will hold.
