    Hi Jim

    If your new to all this, I would use beginner mode as advised in the app. I did this and felt reassured by the virtual training wheels for the first few flights.

    had my P3A a week now and love it.. very stable.. i learnt to fly with a small syma x5sc and enjoyed using it..i have not done the firmware upgrade yet its still on 1.9.1, i did not want to upset things as it flys like a dream on the firmware, not saying the new firmware will upset things, but iam happy with it as it is and dont want to use the new features as yet. just take your time with it and enjoy. post some footage when you have some.. steve.

    Use the SD card. Format it in the bird then download the firmware, unzip, add to SD card. Then pop the Sd card back in the bird and wait.
