    Saw a fellow P3 flier hit a branch and miraculously the P3 recovered. He hit the branch because he was coming back full speed and the braking didn't stop the P3 fast enough. So after some messing around I figured out that when you let go of the sticks and the braking begins, if you hit throttle to 100% for a second or 2, the P3 will pretty much stop in its tracks and gain maybe 5-10ft. Sometimes it stops so hard that it goes backwards a little. Stopping from full speed is reduced to like 10ft or less, usually it would be like 40ft...

    Mine stops in less than 10 ft from full speed already. Sounds like he/you messed with the braking values or was in atti.

    Both of us had braking at 130... Its hard to believe that yours can stop in less than 10feet at full speed (35mph) without you hitting throttle...
