    If you want to boost performance, you can connect Solo to Mission Planner. Once you are in, you can adjust the PIDs directly.

    I had already tried with Tower APP setting the ACRO_YAW_P: to 5 then 9 then 10 (from default 1).
    And it didn't help any.
    I think it was actually worse around 9 and 10 trying to use that setting.
    Still very slow and still very loose feeling.
    No hard stops on yaw kept going about 1/4-1/2 turn when hard stopping.

    There may also be some control lag compared to direct RC that I am used to.

    What kind of tablet are you using? Solo feels very responsive to me, with the Solo app running on an iPod Mini 4. But a friend of mine runs the Solo app on an older iPhone, and the lag is noticeable. Could your perceived lag be due to a slow tablet or smart phone? (Just thinking out loud here.)

    that is where you lose me, manual mode in solo is very good
    but to each their own

    You probably need to adjust all three yaw settings (P, I and D). The D setting should tighten things up. Just remember the original settings in case things get out of hand.

    That is pretty flying.
    But, is that a Solo?

    The lag or soft feeling yaw control is unrelated to the Phone or tablet involved.
    This is in manual mode.
    I'm not even using a phone or a tablet.

    Acro mode.
    Let's see a video of you flying it in acro and see how very good it looks.
    Thanks.
    I'll get a video of mine if anyone asks.
    I'd like to see if just yaw a little faster and have a locked in feel.
    Mine is far from it.
    :)

    I will have to give that a look.
    Is there a setting for rotation rate as well.

    I can see the stock rotation rate is terribly slow.
    And the yaw stops are very sloppy (pid) adjustments may help here.
    Are there individual P I and D for yaw just in acro mode in mission planner?
    Autopilot works fine and I don't care about fast yaw so much in AP/GP assisted photo taking flight mode.
