    How can you tell it is in CE mode?
    Lots of European owners have shown that their P3s can fly great distances.

    Every P3 is limited to 500m height above home point.

    I can't remember exact numbers but the European members fly just as far as anyone else.
    The distance you get will be more limited by local radio interference than the Lightbridge signal.
    Take yours for a spin in an open area and you'll get several kilometres.

    Don't worry about it!
    I live in the UK and use a CE version myself. I have flown 2.7km standard in quite a noisy area.

    I live in Italy too, and my record with the P3A is 6km. I have always my Range Booster by Giuseppe Finizia mounted on the RC. Look for it on the forum.
