    So after using the Litchi app today and dang near flying my P4 into the ground I left that app and went back to the Dji go app. I had 6mph winds and I couldn't get my P4 past 8mph in regular mode. Switching to sport let it get up in the 30's but as soon as I switched it back into regular mode it instantly lost power. Vertical and horizontal speed was at a crawl. I'm taking it home to do a new calibration and see what happens

    6 MPH winds on the ground I'm assuming. The wind up in the air must have been a lot stronger.

    I'm never seen so slow. Is it a coincidence I just had updates?

    The Phantom flies pretty slowly when it's flying into heavy winds. If you want to check if it's a coincidence, try flying in the opposite direction if this happens again. If your Phantom speeds up dramatically, then you can be certain the wind is a factor.

    It was windy here to day as well. At 390-ft altitude, best I got was 11 MPH outbound fighting a crosswind, but return home was near 17.
