    Fly away with my p1. Best place to pick up a p3, and a Gps tracker. New or used.

    Marco Polo is one that I have also heard mentioned that doesn't require cell service. Maybe better in remote areas? I haven't bought one yet ... but man the more I read ...

    No way, don't buy it! Instead give me the dealers details and I will set him straight!

    Make sure you see a test flight & ask why they are selling it .

    I like how he's just: yeah, flew away, no big deal. I'll just upgrade to the $1300 Phantom.

    Oh that's classic.

    Lol.. I understand this may look bad but I think the features of the phantom 3 will help avoid a fly away and it has tracking on it. Would you suggest buying a p1 and adding a tracking? It's just for fun for me, I jus wanna flyyy

    Ok what happened to your P1 ???????
    Inquiring minds want to know ???????
    From what I read the P3 is a hit with many people that have or had P2 . I can't spend your money so it's up to you what you get but whatever you get P1 , P2 or P3 get a tracker for it . If it matters I still fly my P1 and have a blast I fly mainly in manual mode .

    Had put new props on it. Took it for a test flight. Started heading north, couldn't get it to fly back. (Error on my part) Would it keep going or descend ?
