    So I was filming flight down a river and under a bridge.. Lost signal under bridge and looks like drone when up to fly back home hit bridge and then splat into river. My question is I had a brand new P3 Advanced can I buy just a standard drone and use the advanced remote and get all the features. Or do I have to get another advanced to work with the advanced remote?

    The controllers aren't compatible, one uses Lightbridge and the other uses wifi.

    You can buy just the Phantom itself (no RC, accessories, etc.) from DJI, but it'll only be about $40 cheaper than buying a complete Phantom. You'd be better off by buying a new Phantom and selling whatever is left of yours on eBay or here in the classifieds section.
