Hi folks

I noticed that after one of the firmware update the active braking became extremely aggressive on Phantom 3 (ADV/PRO).


I also managed to have my Phantom crashed. It was overturned during braking.  
Have more than 400 flights and I think I did nothing unusual. The wind was also not strong.


Now after buying another P3 I still notice that active braking is very aggressive on this machine as well.
It is so aggressive that I afraid to release the knob immediately when moving forward. I always try slowing down very carefully.

From DJI GO I decreased the braking power to 80 but it is still not normal compared to what I remember it was 1 year ago.

Is it just me or do you notice this thing happen? Maximum braking power is 120 on the GO app but I cannot imagine what it could be and why DJI puts it here.

When I bought new P3 I use the same old controller. Could it be problem? I tried to recalibrate the controller.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions beforehead.

Could you elaborate on "overturned during braking"?

Did it turn upside down in the air and then fall to the ground?

I notice breaking get more aggressive at one point, but I also remember that before that, it used to coast. That is, you could let up on the throttle and it would still travel for a good distance after that.

I can imagine a scenario where people would stop flying by letting go of the throttle at some point short of an object, then see the craft continue on and hit the object. If this happened enough times and people complained to DJI, they might adjust the default breaking behavior. But it should still be adjustable to return to the previous behavior.

Have you tried a number under 80?

Can you please post a video showing how aggressive it is braking?
Since you have it turned down all the way it should not be a hard stop.
Also, you said your old Phantom crashed from braking as it braked so hard that it went inverted.
That cannot happen and you sent the flight records in to be evaluated correct?
Pleas sync your flight record and star that flight as a favorite and provide the date and youe DJI login email and I would like to review that flight.

After you post a video of the violent braking you currently are experiencing then I will tell you if that is normal or if you should send the aircraft in.
