    Brand new P3 4K owner asks:
    1) do we have to Calibrate the GPS every flight? yes/no

    2) In F mode... where do I find the 5 Intelligent Flight Modes?

    Cheers for the advise...

    1. No, get a good compass calibration and stick with it.
    More details here: Compass Calibration, A Complete Primer
    2. You have to enable Multiple Flight Modes in the app settings.
    Then follow the instructions in your manual
    Here's the relevant section from teh Advanced manual.
    Yours could be different as you have a different controller

    After the PAF switch has been moved to the "F" position on your remote controller, you can access the intelligent flight modes from the following section of DJI GO:

    Thanks. I found the IFModes. When I flew P3 above 10m, THEN switched to F- mode on the RC.

    BTW, that article on Compass Calibration was really REALLY timely.
    Cheers
