    I've finally managed to enable Naza-m mode on my p2 non-vision but...

    In Phantom mode, when enough satellites have been acquired it flashes green slowly - very reassuring! It appears to do this with more than 5 satellites available - according to the iOSD mini..

    Now in Naza mode, with 6 satellites found, it seems to flash green and red and only flashes double green with 7 or more satellites.

    So my question is how many satellites do people reckon it's safe to fly with? I'm nervous flying when there's any sort of red flashing. It also seems to swap in and out satellites a little more in Naza mode - not sure why...

    I'd prefer to stay in Phantom mode but also want to use CL and HL...

    Dji says that 6 is good. I fly with 1 red or even 2 red at most.

    Thanks - that makes me feel better.

    I think you get all green in Phantom mode with 6 sats wheras you need 7 for Naza mode. It does seem to improve when you've taken off as well...
