    Well, I crash it on a side of a steep hill. Operator error... I lift up right under a tree branch. Unable to reach it, gopro 4 silver, phantom 2 with fpv gear gone. =( my bird is tag up with my phone number just in case but I doubt I'll get a phone call. Unless somebody happen to have climbing gears then I guess lol but hey p3 came out so might as well right?
    Thinking p3A. Too bad is different props and battery. Silly question since I never had a vision..... this just hook up to my phone(or tablet) for fpv? And hey. ...if you're looking for a fpv monitor and 1 battery and spare props.....I'm selling

    For sure better camara but I don't think I have the TV or monitor to view 4k. Compare p3A p3p both running 1080p 60fps should be the same?

    Sorry for your lost bird. No chance for recovery?

    It looks like it might be awhile to get the P3 and proper app. :(

    Sorry for the loss. I bought my p2 ways before the 3 was announced so I feel a sense of loss as well. Let me know what you want for the extra battery

    Do you live close?, I am a rock climber and I am sure that with a few hundred feet of mono-filament line I can get to it. just put an ad in the local version of Graig's list for someone to go down and get it for $100 or so.
