    I like low level precision flying, be it in GPS or Atti-mode.
    So autumn brings new opportunities for this. I use the P3P as a leave blower.
    Lots of fun.
    I'm only a little bit worrying about the motors that they might suck in the dust.

    Leaf gets kicked up into any one of the 4 propellers, $1000 leaf blower done for. You can buy an actual leaf blower for much less.

    Id get a cheaper drone for that purpose. You don't want to be kicking dust up into the guts of your Phantom...especially the glass on the lens. Dirt + glass = bad,.
