    Just finished my maiden flight! 3 batteries lasted about an hour. Farthest out was 800 ft away. Flew great and nothing but praise so far for this little machine. Worked great with insignia 7.8" tablet

    Sweet. Next you'll want to buy the Windsurfer parabolic antenna skirts for $25-30. You can go 2+ miles with that little addition. They slip on and off, which makes it possible to use standard backpacks and hardcases for the P3, versus the DBS or FPVLR fancy antennas that aren't as portable or convenient. P3 is an incredible bird. You may want to add a tracking device if you do long flights though, such as the Trackimo cellular device, or Marco Polo (no fees or need for cellular coverage) device with hand tracker.
