    Thanks. It took me ages to click the 'buy' button. A lot of money, but if I can sell my Vision it will make it easier :)

    Well, after a week and a half of owning it, I finally did my maiden :)

    Only flew for 10 minutes or so as to breaking in the battery. Took a few pics and a few minutes of 4k video - nothing worth posting on here though, but I need to mess with the settings to get some worth keeping. The P3 is nice and stable. The Inspire has the tag 'a tripod in the sky', and surely the Phantom 3 can have this tag as well.

    Only downside is that anyone can grab the tablet off of the tx and leg it, so ive installed a tracking app - Cerberus (for Android). Maybe a bit ott but keeps the paranoia down :)

    Anyway, DJI have another winner!!
