    My goodness, look at how tall the motor is, sticking up about 1.5 inch out from its arm.
    I also really think the new gimbal not only allow the camera to pitch up and down, but also turn left and right.

    I have only just bought the P3P but had to send it back to the shop for camera focus issues. I'm wondering if the price of this is going to be much more than what I paid for the 3 and if I should get a refund and get this. If it's going to be over £300 more than I paid for the 3 however I would not bother. I paid £1200 for the pro with the hard case and a spare battery and a 12 month no quibble return and exchange policy(even if it fell out of the sky).

    It wont turn 360 degrees. No point if the legs dont retract and no point unless its dual operator which even 90% of inspire owners dont make use of

    That is probably £1700 sterling then . It should be £1225 sterling but the UK always pay more than the US unless we buy online from shops we don't know . The Typhoon H is £1300 in the UK when it is released.

    No. I found them and didn't recall seeing them anywhere, so I just wanted to share them.

    Wonder are they going to be starting to sell decals and if they'll sell that masking tape as a spare part?

    At first glance, I couldn't believe the size of the Phantom 4 battery tray/compartment. It literally looks to be 2-3x the size of the Phantom 3 compartment. Hopefully even with the additional energy consumption of the larger motors, rumored anti-collision system we will still see 30min flight times.

    Well...why would the camera be 360 when the legs don't look like they retract?Kinda makes no sense.

    I recently purchased a used Inspire 1 D model from B & H. It's in stellar shape and flys well(managed 2 flights on it). I thought about returning it, and possibly pull the trigger on the P4 but I'm keeping it and I'll wait til xmas for the P4. Figured I won't be a beta tester like I've been with my Osmo.

    Yikes!! I'll either just stick to my P2 w/FPV or think about getting the P3 once the prices come down.

    This looks like it won't compete with the Inspire - no detachable camera for one. The bigger batteries and motors might allow for a different gimbal but it also looks like part of the gimbal is internal. Only a couple more days....

    Yup, however I doubt the phantom line will get a removable camera anytime soon. That is one of the features setting the Inspire 1 apart.
