    My recent mod project calls for flying with Inspire 1 Pro arms down. Not permanently, however, just to perform a specific task. How the bird behave in such scenario? Is it somehow less stable or flimsy or whatever? I could test this by myself, but the weather is too bad. Anybody was flying like that to share the knowledge?

    Fly's fine with the arms down, actually can get a higher top speed. Only issue will be the feet getting into the field of view of the camera if you pan to far.

    I've flown quite a bit with the arms down, I didn't notice a bit of difference.

    Oh, I'm aware of this. After all it will downgrade the mighty Inspire to a poor little P3, talking about gimbal features only, of course.
