    How long have you had your Phantom Nick? I've had my "phantom vision 2 +", for about three weeks now.I about lost it about a week ago when I attempted to fly with non GPS. Now I am a bit fly shy . Anyhow good to meet you, maybe someday we could all meet.I think Traverse City is about 70 miles from where I live if not more.

    Hey Nick231, I had to send my Phantom Vision 2 Plus to be hopefully repaired as it is having GPS issues.In my backyard my phantom only shows 4 satellites, and when I run the GPS tester the tester shows 11 satellites.When I go down the road to start my pv2+ it shows 9 satellites, but when I turn video on the GPS drops down to 3 or 4 satellites. They keep asking "have you calibrated the compass etc", I have done everything the IMU recalibration . I'm about tired of the run around . hopefully "uavdirect" will fix it. I ordered my pv2+ from u a products in lower Michigan they are worthless as far as support goes.If I can ask, why did you buy another pv2+? Hope your getting some good fall color pictures.

    Hi Tom....sorry about your situation with your vision plus. I bought the p2v because it has a drone expert gimbal on it and it is very very nice. I think it works as well as the vision plus if not even better.
