    Is it possible to limit Phantom's speed somehow? I know I can just pull the stick a bit lighter, but I am wondering, if there is a way to limit P3's speed even at full throttle?

    Thanks.

    That's not possible. Practice is the best way to control the throttle.

    This might be helpful as well:

    No, you got me wrong. I know how to control the throttle, have hundreds of flight hours in my fingers, no crashes whatsoever, own 2x P2V+, 1x Inspire 1 and now one P3 Pro. It's more on the regulatory side of the crazy country I live in, if I could find a way to limit just a few meters per second, some rules would not apply to my equipment. Thus, the need to seek :)

    3d print a disc to attach to the remote control that would limit the potential stick range.

    Would setting the gains effect speed?

    Yeah, that could do the trick, physical limitation on the RC. As the last resort option, great.

    No idea, would it? I am afraid to mess with gains, not too big fan of customizing with trials and errors, not really knowing if my settings will cause it to flip or something.

    Default when bird is on is 100% for all settings... Almost seems like you can speed up in all areas?

    Take off one of the props. That will slow it down. ;)

    I know this is off your topic request but I have gotten my P3 up 47mph with a stiff tail wind. I was shocked it went that fast.

    Wow, that's crazy speed. And what I need is exactly opposite - in calm weather, no wind. Obviously, with tail winds you cannot limit it much :)
