    what setting would make the phantom rotate slower ? Ive followed a few other threads recommendation to turn down braking and tilt, which worked well... but how can I get it to turn slower ? is that possible ? I am talking about when you push the left knob either left or right. How can i get that sensitivity down ?

    haha yea, its really hard to get it smooth ... it will be all smooth.... and then it speeds up ever so slightly messes the shot up. trying to get a consistency with less room for user error. am i dreaming ?

    I wish there was a sensitivity knob on the controller you could easily adjust...

    Sorry I jumped in izzy but no one had what they have in their signature and I do have a switch for the P2 that cuts it down .
    Good luck :)

    izzydrone, you'll only be able to do this with practice. There is no switch, setting, etc. that'll do this work for you.

    When I need a slower Yaw control I lengthen the sticks. The sticks on the P3P are adjustable, not sure on the other versions. I just screw the top part of the stick out to the required length and screw the lower section up to lock it in place.

    Buying some Phantom knobs might help with better control.

    Or, unscrew the sticks so they stick out further.

    Izzy,

    Here is something I made out of an old Hotel key card:

    You can "pinch" the part of the card, on the left side of the controller, to make easy, slow, left and right yaw:

    I just used some scissors and a hole punch on an old hotel key card.

    I really wish DJI would build a solution into DJI Go. If I could take the P3 up to 400 feet and hit a button in the app for a slow 360 yaw - that would be awesome.
