Didnt think about taking a video but while flying the other day and just putzing around in a field I quickly moved the right stick clockwise really fast several times and the drone will actually do a wobble type dance and gain elevation. Just thought it was rather interesting that it could do that without any throttle being applied.

Hello Gabe R, that's an interesting finding. What kind of drone do you use?

P 3 advanced. It will quickly drop to the height that it was at before starting this particular maneuver.

I would be afraid of damaging the controller. Better to keep it smooth.

thats interesting, thanks for sharing and posting the video. Its crazy watching it .. i was expecting like 5 feet vertical increase, not 50 feet increase. In software, we call this an "undocumented feature"

I always fly it smooth except for this one occasion where I found it very interesting that it doing its little wobble dance creates enough lift without giving it any direct throttle to rise up as high as you wish.

Pretty cool and it returns to the same elevation it started at.  I wonder what happens doing the spin with the throttle up

It could have kept going to its max set height, I only kept stopping around that high solely for the video.

Not sure, youd have to try it yourself. If youd like to buy me a P4 id gladly try it for you.

That's a pretty good tribute as to how fast the thing is acquiring & processing data and then how fast it can respond to that processed data. That's amazing.You should do testing for DJI. I don't think too many people would think to do that with their RC's.  lol....   I'm just sayin'....

The pilot who posted a video of his Phantom being attacked by a hawk may want to try this as an evasive maneuver this next time.

If you do the same with the throttle stick does it travel sideways?

When your drone tilts,ascending direction will change accordingly,so with previous round speed the craft will not stay at the same height. Hence the compensation for throttle will be automatically applied. So when you rapidly change the direction, the compensation for throttle also adds up.So it keeps raising.

Just curious: Have you tried moving the right stick in the opposite direction? Same result or different result?

Could not duplicate in either P-Mode or A-Mode with P3 4K & CFRP props. I was about 85% as aggressive as you appear to be on the control stick.

lol .. best of luck man if you send me $1500 bucks, I'll send you a p4. lemme know.
