    After upgrading firmware and putting my preferred settings in the Go app, I took her up for a quick flight. I was warned that she'd be sluggish with sensors on and she was. But Sport mode is ridiculous.

    This is my first 4k camera. Used the 3k default setting to start with. Barrel effect is all but gone.

    Now to decide what to do with the P3A.....

    I just did my first flight in P mode and it seems like it's crawling, is this normal?

    I think the speed is limited to 22mph in P-Mode with the sensors enabled. ATTI mode should be faster, and of course Sport for the fastest.

    Turn off CA in P mode and it will run high 30's
