    I know this has been discussed but I am curious if you are doing some low level flying and you accelerate will the CA kick in to save you from hitting the ground?

    In theory it should. The tilt and acceleration with CA is not high enough to drop altitude, at least not here. Sport mode at 45mph and aggressive tilt is a little different

    In practice I would always add a bit of "Collective" (FORWARD LEFT STICK) when departing from a low hover . . .especially when anticipating an aggressive acceleration. . . good habit anyway unless the object of that departure is to go screaming across the grass to scare yourself.

    I don't recall ever seeing my P4 doing the yoyo dance when it's low, below 30' AGL. I think the VPS takes over and prevents this anomaly.

    The vision position system (VPS) are the bottom sensors. Obstacle avoidance (OA)
    are the front sensors.
