    Lost my p3p today because my rth was lower than the ridge I flew over. How do I transfer the flight record to someone can tell exactly what happened

    I can't get up there without mtn climbing gear. I am so pissed at myself I have read so many post about this same issue. I wish the return home would be above CURRENT ground level. I know it my fault. I'm still sad that thing was my best friend lately

    I always scout the area and set my RTH higher than anything around me. Lesson learned I guess, but that doesn't stop the burn does it. Sorry bro. Ya gonna get another?
    Do people climb there? If so contact the local climbing club and see if they will go up. Throw them a meal/party for helping out. :)
    Have any other friends nearby with a quad to search for it?

    I hit a tree at 4500' away and was at 250' altitude. Thought I was high enough but in PA the hills are deceiving. I since set rth at 400' better safe than sorry

    Yes I'll be getting another and I will post my flight as soon as possible. This was totally my fault by dropping down that ridge to head to my destination PS I just got my drone covered under my home owner policy. My question is can I just buy a p3p without anything else

    DJI sells the P3P aircraft body by itself, but you'll also need to buy the camera/gimbal. Once you buy those items separately, you'll already be over the price of a new P3S.

    Yes, sir. Any Phantom 3 aircraft purchased in parts will always be more expensive though ;)
