    Does anyone know if the bodyworks on these two drones are identical? From the release pic they look identical but can someone confirm?

    Looks slightly different to me. Then again we won't know, till somebody physically has one

    People physically have testers... not the same at all

    Different landing gear all together... width, height and mounting
    Different body build, screw hole placements etc...
    Smaller LED pods... only two LEDs in each pod
    Different compass location
    Gimbal moved more forward

    You can flip your P2V+ over and compare with this shot and see things just don't line up.

    Near as I can tell the P3 will be the same height as the vision+ but has a wider stance everything else dimensionally the same. The comparison on rcgroups was to the standard P2.

    One tester repoted he could fit the P3 in his P2 case. I sure hope that's true...

    It's supposed to be 20-25mm taller than the P2 so if you've got extra height it should work.
