    I have 2 P3Ps, one with a A model controller and the other with a C. Can I use the C model for both aircrafts? I know I will have to keep re-linking it but that only takes a few seconds. I assume the C model is better, it being newer, but I could be mistaken on that. If so would the A model be the better one to use for both? Thanks.

    Yes -- they are compatible.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Is one better then the others in any aspect? Distance, better video signal etc ?

    They tell me the A is better. More power or something.

    The remote controllers are slightly different power-wise. You can find some talk about that if you search this forum. Most people won't notice a difference though. However, if you're trying to break the world record for the longest distance flown, then the A model is apparently the best choice. I've never personally done a detailed comparison.
