    The remote controller will be automatically set to FCC/CE based on your Phantom's GPS location. There is no way to manually change that setting.

    Landing manually is safer since you are 100% in control.

    Fly in P-mode if you want to use the GPS data to hold your Phantom's position. See the Phantom manual for a detailed explanation of all available flight modes.

    1.) I never had that drone, but there are mods such as DBS, argtech, etc.

    2.) I never use the autolanding, I find it easier to land it myself, if it's fairly windy I usually just catch it when I land

    3.) I always fly in GPS mode for "the steady flight". I've practiced in ATTI mode to instances where I may need it, but never intentionally fly in that mode

    Since you just bought it you may want to download the manual online and read all the details before flying!

    I flew last night, just in ATTI mode, very different. I gave up trying to land it on about 16" x 20" target.
    Was even hard in GPS mode. With wind and my slopping lawn I don't know I will be able to do it.
    Enough slop that a full beer is going to tip over 1/2 maybe not.
    Wow I just got an idea, beer can landing gear!
    I could land on water, it should be level.
