    It has the optical ground sensors like the Inspire 1 and GPS with more sats. Start at 49:50 of video for indoor.

    Watching this Live Stream really makes you appreciate the work that goes into the polished, flawless Apple Keynote speeches!

    Phantom 3 looks amazing, and what an amazing price for the 4k model! I'll be looking to flog my Vision+ with Stage 3 - anyone in the UK interested? ;)

    Yes I found a blurb about it on the Net. I wonder if the profile is the same so I don't have to get a new case.

    Should be the same or really close. Also I'm guessing the P2 batteries will work for the P3.

    can't wait to see the total specs.... Hope I can move the gimbal guard over to the P3 and nothing funky happens with the batteries....

    Should be interesting to see the new posts when they come in.... Who's going to be the first one to open it up?

    speaking seriously and being honest i would wait for at least a couple months before buying a phantom3

    we all know dji and how crappy their products can be (for example phantom2 v3 with the esc failure)

    for sure ill buy a phantom 3, but ill keep flying my old phantom 2 with my gopro until i read enough comments proving that this new phantom is a real evolution and safe to fly.

    I can't believe the idiots flew out of a window from the Marina bay Sands Hotel and then clearly violated height restrictions in a country that is already paranoid about UAV's. They need to have some brains about the way they market and by clearly violating CASA requirements on a live feed is not the way to promote the hobby. Great product, bunch of tools in marketing..

    Hoping most of the kinks have been worked out on the P2. I was a "beta tester" of the P2V.

    Very nice piece of kit for the price. I guess there wil be a lot of P2's on ebay after seeing this. DJI presentations could do with a bit more rehearsing.
