Hi Guys,

VPS... When to use it and when not too.

Ideas?

I'm reading that most seem to be turning it off... Why?

Just got my PH3A yesterday.

It's main functions are for indoor flight - secondary functions are for the auto takeoff and landings (which may work to anyway).....it may also help if you like to fly 3 feet above a path or a road and follow along.

I turned mine off and don't notice the difference at all...that is, I don't use auto takeoff, etc. or fly inside. Even if there is only a tiny chance of it getting confused by dust, funny surfaces, programming, etc. I would rather not take that chance...so it's off for now. If I am going to fly inside I'll turn it on.

I also have mine off. I've seen some videos on youtube that suggest there maybe issues with it. Also I assume it is reducing battery life when on.

Ok thxs guys...

I know with my PH2 V+ I had times where I could not get a GPS lock, a VPS would have been handy...

So I'll see how it goes.

but VPS and over water not a good idea?

I bought 2 Phantoms 3 and one on my first flight sent me a message on my Screen that said: "ultrasonic system error" then it makes the same moves as this link on youtube (that is not me I found this after happened to me)  except I didn't place my hand under the sensors.and my camera was damaged and I am sending it back to DJI. My other Phantom 3 it is OK but I just turned off the sensors.
