    IMG_0009.PNG I brought it back with 40% battery life. Furthest out I have flown - absolutely no transmission issues at all.

    I have been able to get to 3600 ft. But I noticed it depends on my device choice. That was with my iPad air. With my nexus, I was only able to do 2500 ft. I didn't push past 3600. I have a p3pro

    Cell version or wifi? Verizon has the 16 gig mini for 329 right now for the cell one. Really contemplating it. If I should or just go for an iPad mini 2 wifi.

    iPad mini 4 has the brightest and best looking screen I have ever seen, you can even use it without a sun shade!

    It's not really a debate at all anymore. We all realize there are those who will simply not follow the rules, regulations and "recommendations". They will keep doing whatever they want to do. We just can't whine and cry when we get exactly what we deserve when the new "laws" come down the pipe this year. Carry on.

    Do you just cache the maps before you fly or do you connect via Bluetooth like I currently do?

    Heavy interference, wind surfer antenna reflectors, I was able to stretch out to 4748 ft @ altitude of 214 ft.
