    When using the P3Pro is there any way to "save" camera settings so that I don't have to remember to reset them after every flying session? For instance I use AEB-3 shot or AEB-5 shot almost every time I shoot. Once I change batteries etc it resets back to default "everything" including a single shot. I know it's simple but I keep forgetting to go in and reset it to AEB and more than once I don't pay enough attention until I've already taken several shots.

    I realize this is probably trivial and silly to most but I'd love to be able to lock this setting and not have to remember to check/change it.

    Thanks in advance,
    Allen

    My settings just stay locked.
    There was a problem crept in a few firmware versions ago that made it so you have to shoot a frame using the screen shutter button to make the settings stay locked in.

    So I have to use the "Screen Shutter" to take a pic and then make the adjustments and it saves then?

    I can't find the youtube video that came out a while back that explained it well.
    The short version is ... If you change the bracketing etc settings and just use the R/C control shutter button, the settings don't stick.
    You have to make the desired setting and shoot off one using the screen shutter button and that makes the setting stick.
