    Take a look at the CES 2016 add on their website could they be hinting at a P4?

    I just discovered two cracks on my P3P two days ago after it's 105th flight. Have you tried calling DJI yet? What did they say?

    I wouldn't expect them talking about a new Phantom 4 just yet. They still have a lot to talk about their new Osmo and Agricultural use drones. I wouldn't be surprised if the Phantom 4 has a removable camera or some kind of Osmo integration. Who knows?!

    With this type of technology you find newer versions and features coming all the time, it would get expensive to keep up with the tech, I waited months after the P3P was released to get end user feedback and would do the same on any new model. With that said, we will need people to get what ever new model is released to do testing and video's.

    The only way I would buy another phantom is if it flies for the true 30 minute flight,,,,the x phantom concept looks interesting object avoidance new cam retracts nice and all the other things

    I would suggest to get it repaired, sooner is better.

    How are you guys getting 9000-10000 meters? I use a windsurfer and can't get better than 3,000 meters out of my P3A under ideal conditions with direct LOS

    Well it only gets worse when you replace body hot glue or bondic will work glue your support towers,now that u do have cracks order the strong arms this will help.its 40.00 bucks for peace of mind.i glued my p3 body the back of p3 there are 3 pieces to body I glued the third body piece now it's just two halfs less twisting the strong arm can be purchased at infinity hobbies or UAV bits I like the aluminum ones
