    Hi All, I'm just about to buy a P3A, after many months of reading lots of reviews on all drones and have decided on the P3A, but also looking at different video reviews of set up I was wondering do you have to do the setup to find your gps location every time you want to fly or does it remember it from your first flight....
    hope this does sound a daft question

    Are you talking about marking the home point? Your Phantom will always do that when it starts up. Make sure the DJI GO app shows that it's safe to fly before taking off.

    Welcome, GPS is acquired automatically by the drone (depending on flight mode) each time you start up. Compass calibration is done when you are flying from new locations.

    I tend to manually set home point once it's safe to fly.
