    Hello guys. Is it safe to fly with the Vision Positioning Sensor on on my P3?. If I do not fly indoor but only outside, do I have to disable Vision Positioning Sensor... In this case, how do I disable it?. Tnx.

    There is rumors that the VPS has caused some crashes. But nothing is for sure. I personally am coming from a P2V+ and I didn't have VPS so I leave it turned off because I always hand catch so I don't really fly to low to the ground often.

    What do you mean by "safe"? That is the real question as anything can fail at any time. I've done a lot of testing flying over ledges and the VPS has not affected the flight at all. A few people have claimed they they saw a VPS error just prior to crashing.
