    Just a quick question about fpv. I have the P3S and am using a note 4 when flying. When flying around the fpv goes back and forth from smooth to choppy, regardless of distance. Just wondering if anyone knows how to maximize fpv performance??

    Try turning down the preview bitrate in settings. I'm curious what your results are.

    Thanks, I didn't know there was a setting for that. I'll definitely give that a shot tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

    I noticed mine was choppy when I used my Surface pro 3. It must be something to do with screen size.

    Not sure in Dji go but the setting is in litchi. I have choppy video at times and I read in the Dji forum that someone turned the bit rate to lowest and set the wifi channel to 20 instead of auto. I just tried it and I had no lag at all. Even holding phantom and swinging it around it was smooth. I usually have lag then. Not saying it will work for you but maybe try that. If I can fly tomorrow I'll do some tests.
