Okay - the thread title is a little bit of a hook (there is no phantom 3 ... yet ). Like so many good pilots have already experienced (I'm not one of them) - I just took out the P2V+'s camera and gimbal...big time. I'm pretty sure it was pilot error - so plenty pissed at myself...but won't repeat that mistake again. Enough lamenting. Silver lining - I bit the bullet and ordered another P2V+ after 'rationalizing' the cost down to only $119 or a new P2V+. And now, I have a great (camera/gimbal-less) flight trainer that's a kick in the butt to fly since I'm not afraid to pile it up at only the cost of a prop or two. I'll keep the new P2V+ for video work and continue to improve my flight skills on the 'trainer'. Silver lining #2 - (and here's the Phantom "3" part): the way I figure it, as soon as DJI comes out with their next platform (6-12 months), the supply/demand for replacement P2V+ gimbal/cameras will tip, and I'll be able to pick up a replacement for about ½ of current $680 pricing. That'll give me two P2V+'s - (don't ask me why...it just seems to make sense...maybe just my little bubble world) Thoughts?
