    What do you mean by will over?

    If you mean roll over, no. It will coast and eventually come to a complete stop.

    In Sport mode, your Phantom will coast longer before it comes to a complete stop. Test it out above all obstacles so you can get a feel for it.

    ok so it'll do the same thing that in GPS mode except it'll take longer to stop correct?

    Correct. Sport mode is a GPS mode.

    Confirmed. Behaves like in GPS mode, but with higher speed limit and indeed it may travel 50 meters until stop.

    X2. The stopping distance is relative to your speed, or whether you'll crank the stick and try to fly in the opposite direction to assist with stopping distance. ATTI mode is the only one that won't auto stop and will allow the Phantom to free float away

    Does the "pause" button work almost like an actual "brake". I haven't had enough time to really check these things yet.

    So far all I know for sure is that the obstacle avoidance works great on solid objects but not on leaves so you can still EASILY crash into a tree should you want to. DJI rep says they are working on that for the next firmware update.

    I am thinking the next firmware upgrade will make the P4 a much better machine. I hope so for DJI's sake.

    Sorry for that off topic comment but didn't want to start a thread for it.
