    So I ordered the Mavic Pro with the controller obviously because who wouldn't want that distance capability but, I tried using just the Wifi mode the other day, and I was pretty **** impressed.

    For the average user who isn't going to need the superior flight distance of the ocusync, the phone only mode was pretty awesome and performed perfectly. This is one of the coolest features in my opinion about the Mavic so far.

    I agree, I am very impressed with how well it worked and how convienient it was for taking a quick flight.

    I too agree. Still prefer using the controller of course but my expectations were low for the wifi mode but pleasantly suprised

    I have a question about wifi flying. I tried it out and I was blown away at how well it worked. However, forward flight is painfully slow. It rotates on the yaw axis very well, but I kept trying to make it go faster. Is it only going to fly at this snail's pace, or is there something I can do to speed it up a bit???

    The max flight speed is 9 MPH. You'll need to use the remote controller if you need to exceed that speed.

    I couldn't get 9mph, or even close to that. Wind was perfectly still.
