    Had my phantom 3 Advanced for 1 month now. I have done 33 flights and got 6.30 hours flight time. Every flight has been faultless in all ways. What a fantastic product DJI have produced. Just saying.....

    I'm only up to 11 flights and enjoying it more each time I fly. What case is that and where did you get the battery labels? Eventually is like to get a hard case where I can keep the props on like that as well.

    I agree! Amazing product, but much of what we hear the forums is about its imperfections giving many the wrong idea. I have a P3A (lightbridge drone for $1000!) Very happy customer here as well! It's not perfect but damned close!

    Who needs battery labels? I marked mine with a Sharpie, on the side, near the connector. Month / year of purchase and A, B, C etc. to keep track of which one.

    Nice one Steve..that's good to hear...I was reading your post and was waiting for the 'but' and 'cracks', but seems your P3 is 100%. Will be getting mine before `xmas.

    Good to here, gives me confidence when I get mine, not that I need convincing to buy the best UAV on the market.

    My case is a type 61 hard case and the battery labels are made by hand held label maker.

    I have over 70 flights, over 100 km flown, gone out to 2.5 km range, flown 4 batteries back to back as often as I can in temps up to 40 degrees Celsius and have no issues at all. I love the machine and the price and it's my hobby away from family and kids. It's not my first Phantom and won't be my last. I'm just a beginner I'm sure but it's a pure joy. Buy one, fly one, repeat.

    Glad to see a thread away from all the negative. I have had about 15 flights and no issues here either.

    Good to know, the product seems way ahead of other vendor offerings in the same price range.

    I'm also enjoying my P3A for the last two months. All perfect flights, completely satisfied with follow me, poi modes and it's flying range. Total 30 flights, flight time 5 hrs, flight distance 90,500 ft. It is simply an amazing aerial equipment. FPV experience is also flawless, I'm using Samsung Tab S 8.4 LTE

    I have one of the cheap triple chargers. I paid like $12 and would pass it on for about the same. It came with no documentation but seemed to work okay. After talking to some people, I coughed up the bucks for the DJI quad charger. I figured it had less chance of causing any problems for these very expensive batteries.

    55 flights since I bought my P3P about a month ago, 6.5 hours, 69,000 feet. iOS 9 the whole time, mostly on my Mini 2. No problems.

    Update: I just did the math. Yeah, apparently I do a lot of hovering, not moving!
