    Hi guys,

    I am new to flying drones and I have been thinking about buying one, right now I don't own a drone but my neighbor has a few P2 and OMG those things are amazing jejeje. I am considering to get a new P3 or maybe a used P2 so I have a few questions.

    I have seen multiple people selling used P2 here in this forum and pretty much all of them have modified antennas and I was wondering if with that modified antenna would allow me to live stream video to my drone smoothly. I have seen a couple of videos online and most of the P2 stream video but the video looks choppy? is that true> and if so could a modified antenna help with that?

    Also, do you guys think is safe to buy a used drone? or should I just get a new one? For what I have seen the P3 will have more speed, better remote control and better antennas but since this will be my first drone I am not sure about spending 1000 plus on it, that why I am considering a used one.

    Opinions please.

    First of all you should fly any quad in line of sight and use the FPV to align the camera for the video shot you want. Choice of what to buy is up to you.
