    Hi members

    Was looking around YouTube when I stubbled across the Phantom 3 videos.
    I must admit I was bored but this got me really interested in getting one.
    After a night of research, I've decided to either get the P3S or the P3A.
    I'll be doing more reading through these forum.

    Have a great day everyone

    Hi I am in rural NSW I have a Standard and the range with he stock antenna was pathetic 180-220m I would go for the Advanced if I were a you costs a bit more but worth it in the long run Search P3S range problems

    Thanks for letting me know.
    I'll definitely get a PSA now.
    It's just my first quad so I'll know it'll crash hard!

    Well I hope you don't crash .The one I have is my first I was just very careful and read up on everything I could find because there is quite a bit to know.Then just gradually got used to it. Make sure the props are on nice and tight I didn't realise how many come to grief because of this .So the more you learn the longer the life of your P3 .Thats my theory anyway but then I could be wrong !

    Thanks for all the tips guys.
    I might buy a Hubsan X4 as a practice first quad before flying the P3A.
    I don't think I'll get the P3P as I don't have a 4K TV.
    Mainly going to play around with the quad. Not really into serious video.
