    I bought a P3 Pro from Amazon or someone else and fulfilled by Amazon. Regardless the box I received states a range of 1.25 miles not the 3.1 I see everywhere.
    I've seen threads on model versions but not clear what order they are in.
    What I received is:
    W323A
    GL300B

    Bought mine January this year and it's a W322A and a 300B, don't know if that shows you anything though

    You have the newer version. The old was simply a W323, and the 300B is a great controller. It's the same as I have :)

    I prefer the older model.
    Do you know what firmware is on it.??

    Apologies I missed the PRO part in your post, mines the advanced thus being a 322 although it's the A like yours which signifies the later model

    I believe you can tell by looking at the difference on the motors. The old one has a more bulky motor profile and the new looks slicker.

    The 300B is the best - many people say the 300C has less range.
    Newest isn't always best with Phantoms!!!

    I just got my P3A last week from Amazon from Ace Drone. I don't know why they marked the UPC labels with a permanent marker for? Hope it's not from a returned. But i received W322B with GL300C. Don't know if i should worry about the range as some said about the receiver range since i don't think i'll EVER fly further than my eyes can see (a football field length).
