    Even though the P4 has adjustments available to smooth out yaw movement, I still found it touchy trying to start the turn. I finally opened the remote up and installed the same switch and 20 ohm pot as I had on my P2. I was anxious on the test flight but glad to report it turns as slow and buttery smooth as you like.

    A side note, or tip as you will, for anyone else reading......try extending the yaw stick first (normally left stick when not specifically changed) by unscrewing it and playing with different lengths by adjusting the 2 screws. I saw this tip on Tom's Tech Time and have yet to see it anywhere else!

    The control stick adjustment has been mentioned here many times. It's been a staple on most RC units since I can remember, that's at least since the 70's.

    I considered adding to my comment that i'm not a newb to drones but new enough :cool:

    Hopefully it'll be a post another newb reads and sees for the first time.
