    There is no zoom correct? I am pretty sure there is no zoom but everyone who asks me about the drone seems surprised there is no zoom.

    Use the right stick forward to zoom in and backwards to zoom out :p

    Apparition is right.
    The P3 has a fixed focus lens - no zoom.

    that is what I thought. Its a good thing as far as I am concerned. Once I explain that there is no zoom people realize that I cant use it to peep in their window from 300 feet.

    No - you have to fly 3 feet outside their window to peer in.

    You can "zoom" in post. If you are going to upload your video to YouTube in 1080P, shoot your video in 4K. Then, if you want to "zoom", just crop the video. You can crop it to 1/4 the size of the video and retain the same quality.

    It's like telling people with point and shoot cameras to Zoom With Your Feet!
