Is the jury still out on range differences in models/versions??

    How many months of flying, and how many thousands of flyers.. Still there's no definitive answer.

    I'm less concerned with the body/rc models, as I believe it's been established there's no change in range. Matter of fact I just took out my new 2016 P3A stock over 2.5 miles out yesterday. I think it was actually better than my original P3A to be honest.

    I wonder about the p3p/p3a range. Does anyone know if the rc/video share bandwidth? The p3a video transmission is throttled at 2mb, we know what. My questions are:

    1. Does the video throttle increase/decrease/doesn't affect video feed range?

    2. Does the video throttle augment the rc range compared with p3p which can "hog" data bandwidth?

    Any empirical feedback would be appreciated, or even "pilot science" ( from experiences).

    Thank you
