    I've feathered the rudders to help with slow coordinated turns, but I find it nearly impossible to get the nice slow turns that I was able to get with my P3 Pro setting the left and right gain to 80. Is there another way to adjust for a gradual response to left and right rudder? If not, may have to wait for a software or firmware update...

    Raising the height of the remote controller sticks will help.

    Making the stick output more non-linear with input in the EXP settings should give you what you need.

    This is what I did. I set it to the max .8. I did lengthen the sticks, which may help, but I just had a much smoother response setting my P3 to .8 in the EXP settings.

    Or reduce the gain to 20. Right now I have mine set to 30 for sport mode which makes for less jerky rudder input in that mode.
