    With most videos being silent or dubbed, I've never heard these copters in real life. How loud are they? Anyone have a short sound file? Got my P3P on order, just asking lots of questions before receiving it. Thanks!

    Step 1. Go find a bee hives.
    Step 2. Shake it really hard to let them know you're there.
    Step 3. Close your eyes and listen.
    It sound like a pack of angry bees

    Full throttle it's about as loud as an electric weed whacker. Hovering, about half that.

    Somewhere between a QAV250 and an Inspire1 :) Seriously. I wouldn't call it quiet at all, but it doesn't sound pissed off either. Louder than my P2.

    Quite quieter than the P2, and a rather different less beehive-like sound.

    It seems a bit quieter than the plus, on a breezy day or near traffic you won't hear it beyond about 500 feet.
