    P2 with H43D + GoPro is better than P2 V+ (related to Video and Pics)
    P2 V+ is better than P2 (Telemetry and Real Time Camera Feed is ready out of the box, with P2 you have to buy and install all the FPV stuff)

    I have a P1- FPV, P2-Filming and P2 V+ (recreation- filming too).... For filming (semi pro comercial videos/pic) I prefer my P2 +H3-3D + GoPro. Installed basic Boscam + immersion 600Mw FPV + Telemetry.

    What are your intended uses for the Phantom?
    What is your level of technical expertise?

    General photography and filming, nothing too serious.
    I'm technician by trade so fixing some issues with guide won't be a problem

    I have the P2V+ v3. I bought it in March.
    I am having some compass issues now, but other than that it has been great. The only thing I don't like about it is the fish eye lens. It's still 1080p and the definition and clarity is great, it's just the fish eye distortion that bugs me. And FPV on my 8" tablet, it works great.
    I don't own a gopro so I don't know if they have a fish eye lens but from what I have seen I think they do not. I love my P2V+ but you might be better off with a gopro.
    Here's a link to my you tube page. I have a bunch of flight videos there. Mostly goofy stuff, practicing, etc.

    but you can see the fish eye effect a lot.

    • Software is available to help correct any fish eye distortion. 1080p does a real good job. New price wise the P3. Used or refurbished the P2vision + as has the camera gimbal and FPV built in.

    Buying the FPV kit,is. More expensive by add ones than to get one built in.

    i went p2 h4-3d since I already owned the gopro too.

    not to mention everything I read said the gopro setup was superior form video...

    best of luck with your decision...
