    With all the post you have submitted since 6:00pm i think you should sit down and read over the users manual carefully since most of your problems seem to be from a lack of knowledge in how it works.

    Wow. I read the manual cover to cover watched many videos on how to operate and I have prior experience with high end quads. Is it my lack of reading that is causing the drone to not turn on?

    More of a lack of understanding of how it works. If you had prior experience with high end quads as you've stated then it should be a snap for you to figure out what's wrong.

    It's not good to make judgements like the one you just did. You do not know my prior rc drone/aircraft experience it is not my fault that I got a defective unit.

    I base my opinion on all four of your post which leads me to believe you have every little experience and
    knowledge of what is wrong with your P1 other then the fact that you think it is defective.

    Ok guys, go easy on him/her. No need to be defensive. Everyone is new at some point and ya gotta start somewhere. Make new members feel welcome and try to understand their issue.

    It seems you have had a bunch of issues. If you have read the manual and are familiar with how a P1 operates I would return it to the hobby shop for a new one as it must be defective.

    The best way for us to help is if you give us the details of the quad (new, used), and exactly what each issue is.

    B&H is a good seller. I am sure they will take care of it. Hopefully the new one will work as expected. ;)

    in answer to your original question.

    the only quad's close to being worth buying at 350 or so are the P1 or P2 .

    nothing else even close to the reliability and solid performance.
