So, coming from a spark, im used to fairly quick stops where as my Mavic just seems to keep going and going. I realize theres a big difference in inertia, however im fairly confident there is a way to make it stop more aggressively.

I was toying a bit with the Braking gains if I remember correctly and thinking that increasing them will make for a more aggressive stop since cinema mode had them lower.

I didnt really see too much difference, but I didnt increase them to all the way to the max for fear of throwing a parameter out of whack.

What is the proper way to decrease braking distances with more aggressive stops?

Hmmmm going to sound like a dumb question but where do you adjust the "braking gain" ?

Be sure you're  not in Cinema Mode.  That will certainly dampen any course/speed changes.

Its not, I read all about that
Braking gain is under aircraft settings under gain IIRC. Might be under advanced.

Good luck,  I haven't noticed any differences in braking speed, but I'm usually filming and flying more slowly anyway.

Braking is under Sensitivity settings in MC Settings > Advanced > Sensitivity > Braking.

You can set it from 50% to 150%, 150% being very aggressive braking, following no input on control sticks.

Thanks for providing a clear answer to the OPs question!

Do remember that more aggressive movements (or anti-movements in the case of braking) will put higher stresses on the parts.  I'm not saying to not do it.  I'm saying it will be more wear and tear on the equipment.

In general hard braking is tough on a quad, the more gradual the stop the better....

Gain settings are under the Advance setting of MC settings. Parameters under Basic Gain indicate how far an aircraft reacts to the remote controller’s command. A greater value indicates a faster response speed and an agile movement. If the values of Gain are too small, the aircraft cannot respond to remote controller’s command swiftly. If the values of Gain are too great, the aircraft may shake. It's not recommended to adjust it if the pilot is not very familiar with the operations. The answer to this question, you can check the sensitive setting for brake first, the other is that don't move the drone that fast.
