    I am a little confused as to if I should set IOC course lock for my first flight with this level of drone? My flying skills are still low. Any advice?

    absolutely use NAZA, would have prevented my crash on 6th flight out of the box. The Failsafe feature is a must use, along with home lock, course lock maybe depends on user.

    To get into NAZA do you have to take it out of the gps mode?

    You have to use DJI assistant plugged to your bird. Then you have options. Lots of good tutorials on it, would google for you, but on the run right now. ;)

    No use GPS in a nice big clear area. I'd suggest a cheap syma x5c or something to learn on. Crashing 50$ sucks lots less than 1000$ +.

    No. There's no reason so use course lock on your first flight. In fact, don't take it out of beginner mode until you know how to fly. Then consider IOC.

    And disregard the other responses, there is no "naza" mode nor is there Assistant software for the P3. The guy is confused.

    Methinks either you guys are on the wrong forum, or forgot what forum you're on.
    This is the P3 forum - there is no "assistant" for the P3 and no such thing as Naza mode.
