    "Up to 5 km or 3.1 miles (unobstructed, free of interference) when FCC compliant
    Up to 3.5 km or 2.1 miles (unobstructed, free of interference) when CE compliant"


    When I bought my p3p October 18th it said 2 km fcc.

    Did something in the hardware change? Or do you think this is with the windsurfer antenna booster? My best so far is 2.1 km... Completely stock still. Then my video cuts out.

    Is this maybe just something in the new firmware?

    You're talking about DJI specs for a stock P3 so it's not about any antenna booster.
    There's been no change to the Phantom 3.
    DJI updated the specs about a month ago to better match the performance owners have been getting ever since the release of the P3.

    Absolutely agree. It was better than specs

    Please forgive me; what does FCC and CE mean?

    US
    US & European communications authorities - they license radio equipment.

    I thought the same thing when I seen the new adds. I don't get much further than 1/2mile myself. video starts to break up a bit then. I'll find an open field one day and fully test this 2 mile thing.
