    I have a P2 GP FPV iOSD GS. On my last 2 flights, I gave experienced a loss of pitch control (altitude) at the end of the flight. No problems during takeoff and mid flight. But upon hitting my first battery warning (20%) and bringing the P2 down for capture ( I use the grab in flight method of landing) the left stick seems to have no authority. The P2 will be at around 6-8 ft and I give it full up throttle and very little happens. It does arrest a shallow decent but not much else. I have not crashed yet but this seems to be a problem. Anyone had this happened before? Could it be my recent addition of the ground station?

    It sounds like the 2nd warning light was triggered and the quad went into the automatic landing mode. Check the YouTube videos for the exact information on how this feature works.

    Did an IMU calibration and now all seems well. Burned three batteries without the problem.
