    I've seen the new features of the P4, and while the object avoidance is cool, I don't think its worth the $1400. The only feature that I think is worth it, is the ActiveTrack function. However this functionality doesn't appear to use the added cameras, rather seems to be software based with the main camera. I'm hoping that given this it will become available for the P3A/P3P in the near future!

    I won't be upgrading even if they fail to bring that feature to the P3, but that feature would make the P3 an even better arial video system! What do you guys think? Will the software feature become available?

    I was wondering the same! They pushed a lot of features via firmware updates in the past and I can't believe it uses anything other than the camera?

    Website says they have front collision sensors.

    Thanks Mike, I've signed up for the beta. I looks like it will do exactly what I'm wanting! Are you involved with the project?

    No, just a beta tester. I've only played with the app indoors, but no flights yet. You can check out their forum here: Vertical

    I think the P4 uses the front sensors to help track it in addition to the main camera.
