    Haha, reminds me of those big foam planes we'd buy as kids. You'd toss 'em forward, they'd loop up and over and come from behind and hit you in the head, remember?

    Could be what is wrong with me today - I kept buying them and kept hitting myself in the head for several years of childhood!

    so... you are saying the launch of the P3 was a success evident by the number of what the device supports.... youtube real time upload. Probably always has been like that - now its instant post!

    Having a look around at two other forums for owners of Phantoms, gives you an appreciation for the standard here.
    I tried searching one in particular for signs of intelligent life and gave up.

    You weren't around for any other previous phantom launches I guess? This has been relatively tame compared to the p2v+ release.
