    Hi. I have an Phantom 3 standard and im not sure if my drone will make it 3 km away and back. My battery has 4380 mAh left. And crusing speed will be 54km/h.

    I just done a 3.5km way off and 3.5 way back last weekend.
    I was not at full speed, everything went smootly. 44% and (3.61V worst cell) at landing.

    good luck !

    I've did a 5.1km round trip waypoint mission yesterday at 32km/hr with plenty (40% or so) to spare at the end. Started with a fresh charge.

    If you're worried, have a back up plan in mind. Be prepared to land before it gets back to you.

    See this thread: Almost lost my P4...not how you think!

    If you're flying over water... well...
