    Just recieved my new p3a this thing is amazing! I came from using a blade nano qx so this is a huge upgrade. Everything is going smoothly so far upgraded the firmware, calibrated the I'm along with the compass. Set everything up in the app all the reading and YouTube videos payed off. First flight went good got out to about 2000 ft and brought it back. Second flight I took off and went out to about 4000 ft when I came back to land just before I was about to touch down the phantom seemed to power up and go up about a foot or two it did this twice before it came down wonderful with a very soft landing. Just wondering if anyone knows why this happened it wasn't a huge deal but I like to understand in case I was in a situation that this would of mattered

    Yeah thought that might have something to do with it. I was coming down very slow and might of even left off of the decent which caused the bird to lift up quick just my theory
