    I just received a new Advanced today and it shows as model W322B on the sticker, but the box says the distance as only 1.2 miles. I am trying to confirm if W322B is the latest version and, more importantly, can go to 3.1 miles. I have been chatting with a DJI Production Support rep for almost an hour and they know nothing of what I am talking about.

    I have searched this site and I do not have a conclusive answer and I need to know ASAP so I know if I have to send the drone back.

    Please advise.

    All versions of the Advanced have the same range. DJI used to advertise the shorter range on their website and later increased it out of the blue. I guess their first number was a little too conservative.

    I already checked that and have the new motors, but I was spooked when the box said only 1.2 miles.

    You dont plan on going past 1.2 anyway, right Andy, cause that would be past VLOS and that would be wrong!

    I took my 1.2 mile stated advanced almost 4 mile out over the ocean last week.
