    In Sport Mode, it does not use GPS to triangulate and lock position, but it still received the signal. This way, when you press the Fly button, it it comes to a stop and holds position.

    But everybody knows that the bird is the word.

    Good to know. After four years of flying unassisted I’m ready to learn how to do loops and barrel rolls. And that GPS / air brake function will definitely help relieve at least some of the anxiety. ...& hopefully non of the adrenaline rush

    Looks like you had a blast! Great flight time considering having the pedal to the metal. Question from a dummy- Next to the HDOP is "3D+DGPS". What does that represent? Love the tune! Haven't heard it in a long time.

    A quick search indicates that DGPS is differential GPS. I think it has to do with the MRO M8N GPS. I started seeing that display on Solex recently.
