    Why would you go back, presumably it will be included in all future versions.
    You don't have to use it just because it's there.

    Because they removed the format data recorder option since 2.4.1

    Is it possible to use your own location as map?
    I think the simulator is using a map of china.....

    Hi Frank,
    I am only seeing a flat square green field with a landing strip. Is this because I use the android version?

    Strange, if you look at the DJI page you'll see a 3D landscape.

    As you have already or will find out the wait for this on android will not be worth it, you'll use it once & forget about it like all on iOS, nothing beats the real thing

    Ptr,
    I don't understand. Is the 3D landscape only on IOS?
    What other functionality is missing?

    It was May when I got my P3 that I last looked at it, but if memory serves me well it looks like your pic above

    WHY NO CONTROL OF DRONE WITHOUT BULKY CONTROLLER!!

    Is there not an app that will allow follow me mode without the big white controller, surely we should be able to have the drone follow our phone without it being plugged into the controller, personally I don't want to strap a back pack to me when I'm surfing, not only that I would have to waterproof it.
    For such an advanced drone it lacks some simple control, maybe time to switch to parrot drone. I might have missed something but we need to have control without connecting it to the controller, yes I realise range will be very short but that's fine when you are having it follow you in extreme situations, skiing, surfing, mountain biking, mountain climbing, karting etc.

    Litchi app for Android allows you to set the P3P to follow another device with its Magic Leash add-on. I believe they just released beta for iOS as well.

    And Parrot isn't even close to being in the same league as the Phantom.

    First, completely of topic. Second, The P3A and P3P don't use wifi to control the drone so the controller is needed. If you wanted something else... you should have bought something else.

    Edit: I'd bet that DJI is working on a portable controller. Maybe not for the P3... but working on something.
