Brake Mode Skyviper GPS

I tried out brake mode , this weekend as it one of the few modes I have not tried . Results where not what I expected . I switched from position hold to to brake , and SV would not move on control input switching, to another mode returned function. Is this the intended function of this mode , basicly lock control input ? I was thinking it would be flyable like althold but would try to stop very quick .

That sounds like the intended behavior. And then you have to jump modes to regain control? I preset a TMODE hard-button to be AltHold because that’s steerable etc. and let’s face it, most of my flight mishaps are um, altitude related.

That’s literally what BRAKE mode does. It stops “fast” and holds position (requires GPS obviously)

I understand that now . I was just surprised that it blocks control input once engaged . I was thinking it would still be able to move and stop quicker perhaps on release of controls to neutral . But is more like a parking brake .
