    Finally... I have all equip set up and firmware done... took the P3P out tonight to test flight it. Started with the POI and it actually connected and asked for altitude and then the setting of the POI. I used my house as a test... flew over it, set the cam on a direct look down and set the alt at about 125 ft. .. Safe enough. Then when I se the POI on the menu, it had, in red, a 1 ft radius. I tried for about 5 minutes to change the radius to about 75 ft. to give it a good test. No go. Any suggestions??

    Did you fly away from the POI? This is how you establish your radius.

    thats not right

    fly to poi
    enter mfm
    once your in right place, press to confirm centre
    fly out to desired radius and then press confirm again, its give you option of speed and direction.
    confirm and then it starts.

    Just saw a youtube... the right stick, once the POI has been established sets the radius... will need to try it tomorrow in the day light...

    Try the new modes in training mode first, you can try them all then you will know what to expect when you fly them for real.
