    Sorry if I missed a similar thread, but noticed today that the official specs page for the P3A/P3P now lists a longer range than the previous 1.2 miles.

    Max Distance
    • Up to 5 km or 3.1 miles (unobstructed, free of interferences) when it is FCC compliant
    • Up to 3.5 km or 2.1 miles (unobstructed, free of interferences) when it is CE compliant
    Which I guess begs the question, are all of the P3A/P3P units sold in the U.S. FCC compliant? I would assume they have to be, but you know what they say about assuming.

    All Phantoms can be set to CE and FCC. That setting is determined by the GPS location.

    I have no doubt that line-of-sight range is 3.1 miles. Just be elevated a bit at the control point.

    Yes I can see the mountains which are 10 miles away and some even further on a clear day.
