    just sold my phantom 2 V+
    It's all getting too hard, unreliable, dangerous and basically ..... A "too hard basket"
    I've read so many forums on everyone's difficulties that I just gave up and got my money back.
    To be honest, the software problems, hardware problems, correct flying weather, regulations, registrations, fees, restrictions etc etc.... It's a joke

    Sooner or later everyone gets rid of them. Just a matter of time and ability.

    No sympathy needed, I'm happy now. Less stressed and do t have to worry about all the above mentioned crap that has ruined the whole experience for most of us.

    Ok, but that suspiciously sounded like you derive pleasure from other's misery.

    If a drone, basically a toy, stresses anybody out that bad, they need more responsibility in their life.

    Of all my stress, my drone doesn't even register in the top 20.

    So, you never even flew it? How can you arrive at all those conclusions without even experiencing the product?

    Oh yes I flew it alright. A few times in fact, hence why I can comment about the whole experience like this.

    This hobby is not for everyone you like it or you don't . I been flying around 20 years love every second . Problems are a part of life you over come / conquer them and move on or you cry about how bad you have it . My P1 & P2 fly rock solid for the past few years . Seeing that this is your first post why did you even post ?

    Have a read of the topics.
    Majority are problem related!!
    Software and hardware dramas. RTH fails!
    Drone fly away for no reason. Crashes etc etc

    Okay, lets do the math.
    About 100,000 UAS out there.
    About 500 (guessing big) people have issues and come here for help.
    That is HALF OF ONE PERCENT who have trouble,
    The rest don't post because they are enjoying flying their UAS's.

    I have had zero issues, but Wisconsin weather right now is not conducive for flying.

    It's a shame you fill like this & that you've sold your P2V+ :( I've only been flying just over a year now & love every minute of it, had no problems with firmware issues, etc. I can also vouch for a majority of the members here too.

    I wish you all the best;)

    So .. you had a very old tech P2V+ and feel that qualifies you to comment on the current technology?
    As for problems posted in forums ... that's like asking how many people are healthy in accident and emergency at the hospital.
