    I have had my P3P for a few weeks now, and the forward for down and back for up is really messing with me. It's backward from a plane. Pull back equals climb and push forward is down.
    Is there a way to reverse it?

    There are different modes in the app-- check them out. It does take some getting used to if you fly planes.

    Cool. I know there's a lot in the app I haven't dug into yet.

    I assume you are trying to start them like normal but would think if you change the way you use the sticks that would change too.
    Try different ways to start them...or I'm just way off and that's very possible .:rolleyes:

    Well you must know how to fire them up in mode 2 so if you change the sticks try doing it up and in or something .
    I've never changed mine so I don't have a clue . Maybe @bobmyers does :)
    Hi bob ;)

    OK-- Dirk-- you got my curiosity up-- so I went in under the Custom Mode and made the forward left stick down and back left stick up. To arm the motors push the left stick forward and left and the right stick back and right. To stop the motors, push the left stick all the way forward.
    @oakmeadows-- FLY AT YOUR OWN RISK and let me know if it works. :D:D:D
