    Hi all - as the title says I am new to this forum but have been reading it for a few months. I am currently a P2 owner but have recently put in an order with rcgeeks for a P3P with extra battery.

    Can't wait for it to arrive.

    It was a calculated guess as I recognise RCGeeks as a UK firm.
    If you haven't had a Phantom before then the best advice I can possibly give you is to read everything you can 7 times and then once more. At least with the P3 you won't have to deal with installing any software on PC/Mac and then trying to configure it all from there. This time it's all done via the app!
    Any questions fire away ;)

    Thanks Fourblade - I currently own a P2 which I love flying. Will probably keep it when the P3 arrives.
