    I have a PV2+ and live in a very wooded area where picking up consistent GPS is difficult.........does the P3 with the addition of Glonass help that issue....that alone would be a reason to upgrade for me.

    The P3 is able to see more satellites. So, it should help in any area.

    Gps lock is instant even indoors with me!
    P2 would struggle even outdoors!!

    My P2V+ version 2 has never had foil mod and easily gets enough sats for GPS flight. I've seen as many as 9 in the house, and 11-15 in flight. image.jpg
    This is a screen shot on the kitchen table.

    The P3P gets 11-12 on the same table, and 18-21 in flight. It's an amazing bird, and only looks like the prior models!
