Hello Todd,
Thank you for sharing this test with us.
As far as I know, the VPS on P3 needs a flat surface below with certain patterns. The acustic positioning system requires an ultra sound reflecting surface in order to function right. The grass and rugs in this case absorb the sound from P3 and do not reflect. With all the respect.

How do you turn vps on? It’s beneficial to have in different terrains. I.e.: uphill, so you don’t run into hill.

i think if your flying over water its best to turn it off

How to fly in a narrow gorge? With or without GPS or VPS ? Once I tryed to take off (from my hand) in a narrow street (2 meters wide) and my P3P got crazy… hopefully I turned it off holding it..The Gps signal is confused in narrow streets etc.??
