    Is it ok to have hydro wires between you and the bird, say the regular pole wires along a roadside? Worried about signal interference after reading here that the bird is looking for any excuse to say bye-bye!

    No, should not be any problem at all.
    Wires do not block radio waves that way.

    Never fly close to wires though.

    What you're reading is misleading.
    The P3 is very reliable and is definitely not looking for any excuse to say bye-bye.
    Get lots of practice in a large open area and learn how it works and you'll be fine.

    Quite the opposite.
    The a/c has 16 degrees of freedom or sensing vectors.

    Lot's of stories, very few conclusive.

    Usually pilot error or inexperience.

    I fly close to them often. No problems at all - as long as you dont hit them lol.
