How to increase horizontal speed?

    I have P2 H3-2D with Lightbridge and Futaba 14SG and latest firmware for all DJI components.

    I am HATE the slow horizontal speed with the new firmware. I take video of fast moving subjects occasionally and I need speeds higher than 17-20mph which is what I'm getting.

    Other than reverting to older firmware, is there another way to do this? Perhaps by increasing dual rate for elevator to over 100?

    Any help appreciated.

    Dual-rate won't help. The maximum tilt/pitch angles are controlled by the NAZA.

    Other than reverting firmware, you can also use attitude mode and manual mode, which allow for more speed.

    thanks. I know manual mode would def allow for more speed (but also flips and crashes!) but I thought ATTI mode had same top speed as GPS. Am I wrong?

    ATTI has a greater max tilt angle than GPS (or at least it had last I checked).
