    I wonder if "Payload mode" might give it just enough extra power to aid in a flyaway situation?
    Obv it probably drains the battery a lot faster (?)… but in an "emergency" it might offer a quick 1-2min solution?

    So I just ordered mine a week ago and played with it today I did the calibration the IMU And when I fly mine it shows that my phone has disconnected from the drone but I can still fly with a controller please help

    Quick warning about mode C: It will turn down breaking time so if you are indoors be very careful because your drone will not hard stop when you want to avoid a pet a spouse or a child rather glide into them
