    Hello, i'm looking into a P3A and found one at gearbest for a good price,
    but it's specs are confusing, video recording only says 1080p not 2,7K.
    From what i understand there are only one camera version for the P3A
    and it's the 2,7k camera. Is it safe to buy a Dji from them, will i get a authentic one?
    I live in Sweden so it's a big price difference to buy here or from China.

    This is the one, DJI Phantom 3 Advanced GPS App FPV Remote Control Quadcopter with 1080p HD Camera RTF UFO

    There was an upgrade over a year ago and yes it films in 2.7k also. It also will say it only will fly 1.2 miles but the upgrade will make that 3 miles or 5km. I have the P3A and it's great

    Be sure the retailer is an authorized DJI seller or you may not have a warranty.

    So it's just a software update to get 2.7K and greater range?

    When you upgrade the drone which you will have to do as soon as you received it yes it will have 2.7k and 3 mile range

    According to Dji support I have to buy the Phantom in Europe to get warranty.
