    Thinking of upgrading to P3A. Need to know the advantages of upgrading. Not sure I completely understand light bridge. Also no more wifi? Fly inside? Anything I'm missing? Is the upgrade worth the difference? If lightbridge would give better view on my iPad with more detail for search and rescue etc, I think it would be worth it.

    If you are coming from a P2 series, think of it as coal-fired and the P3 is turbo diesel.
    Everything is way better - everything.

    Yes, fisheye is way back in history.
    Sounds like you haven't really checked out many of the details.
    Start here ... Phantom 3 Drone - Smart Drones | DJI
    Lightbridge means you can control your drone like you've never dreamed of before.
    No more losing connection at 500-600 metres or just because you rotated the Phantom or wifi provides a crummy link.
    Smooth live video on your screen, good camera control etc etc ...
    It descends 50% faster.
    And it has low light ability .. like this panorama created from 72 individual images.

    Thanks ... if you think that looks good, you should see it full screen on a big monitor.
    There are several stitching programs you can use.
    Search on the forum for panorama and you'll find a few threads discussing technique.
    Here's one to start you ...
