    Ordered a P3A from Nexgen Drones. Promised it would be in the mail tomorrow. It's been 6 months since my P2 sank into a mountain Lake in Colorado. Actually got that one back, but it didn't fly again. Got a Walkera Scout. Sold it on eBay. That won't happen again. The more I thought about it, I realized that DJI had problems but I liked that P2 for a lot of reasons. So I'm back.

    They just got the P3As in. I should have asked if will be shipping with the extra battery

    I would guess no, but you may get lucky! I still have not gotten shipping confirmation for my extra battery.

    Yeah I feel your pain. I too am back after crashing into the ocean last year while filming some really low over the top of the wave footage in atti mode and I smacked into the face of the wave never to be found again, just another addition to davey jones locker. Anyways I pulled the trigger a few days ago with a new P3 through advexure. Also bought the hard shell back pack. After crashing the phantom 2 vision plus last fall I decided I would build my own blackout hex with top of the line everything and it flys like a dream but not having a gimbal and gps and all the goodies built into one like the phantom 3 just isn't the same. Hopefully the P3 will be able to sustain me until I can afford a inspire or a matrix.

    You won't be disappointed... I just got mine in the mail yesterday and couldn't be more excited by it... I kinda feel bad for my P2....
