    Looks like you just made it as the P3 had triggered auto land. Do you think Atti mode helped you get it back in time? The answer is YES!

    Yes please let us know if it was a stock controller. And it looked like there was no wind. Your speed going out looked the same as coming back.

    Yes, it was stock controller. Original box setup, no boosters. It will sound crazy but i can make it 8000meters one way i am %100 sure because i had more %8 just check mini map i couldn't fly in one line. If someone breaks this record I'm going to try 8000meters :) but it is really risky i was lucky this time.

    I don't have range problem i just need more battery power :D I can fly directly 15km but i can't turn back.. I have landed at %8 batter power i could go far more, my image and controller signal quality was full not even 1 bar went less..

    Hats off to you Sercan ... 14.4km travelled on one battery!!
    Right down to 8% battery - right on the limit.
    Anyone trying to match this is pushing things right to the edge and could come unstuck.
    I won't be trying myself. 2.5 km out to sea and home with 30% left is close enough for me.
    But it's interesting to see just what these babies are capable of to give you confidence for ordinary flying.
    Well executed at a perfect location with great skill and airmanship.
    Since you are in Turkey I wonder if you have an ECC machine too?
    Would make a mockery of all the pre-release complaints about low power = low performance P3s for Europe if it is.

    Awesome flight and piloting skills. You have way more guts than I do. Also you did a great job of editing. Keep it up!!!

    Crafts bought there will be set in CE mode, i watched another one last night who got just shy of that distance maybe even be the same guy and he stated it was a CE model on the video in the translation, i wondered then if he had imported the craft or not or bought it from DJI or a local retailer.
