Well after a lot of thinking and messing with other drones i finally picked up my P3 standard just under 2 weeks ago, absolutely love it and so glad i went for it rather than cheaper alternatives. Funny thing is i set out to get my first drone around 2 months ago and got a local model shop to order a Syma X8c ( £100) but after around 3 weeks it still hadn't arrived and i was told they wouldn't be able to get them instock any time soon. By this time i had already started looking online at phantoms etc i did really like the look of the P3 standard but thought it was a little expensive for my first drone. i went to my local DJI dealer who still sold the P1 so i decided this would be a good starting point, i ended up going through 2 which both had different problems and on on the second time returning i managed to bag a great deal on a P3 Standard. So it has really worked out very well as i had the P1 to get to grips with first then moved onto the P3 Standard, the footage is amazing and battery life much better, the Advanced and Pro were just to expensive as i had already upped my budget a fair bit to get the P3 Standard. Anyway just think its funny how things work out and wonder how many others start off thinking about a budget drone and end up spending WAY more !
