    Just heard about the new Phantom 3, which may basically be called P3 Vision.
    Okay, better camera, slightly better battery time, Wifi link...
    WAIT, WIFI LINK?
    My experience with this system is terrible. It has an enormous delay and you can't barely see your subject in details, even in 640x360 resolution.
    Once, I almost crashed because I thought that the Phantom was moving too slowly and I pulled the stick even more. It was actually already moving and I just couldn't see.

    Plus there is no range extender, in my opinion, even though there's the best wifi routing system out there, I don't think it's gonna be greater than 300m.
    What are your guys's thoughts?

    I think it will be fine for its intended purpose. Short range flights. What's interesting is that it has waypoints, POI and follow me. The DJI intro does not say coming soon or as a 3rd party app. It states that they are standard and working. Why are they not working in the P3 now?

    For $200 more you get LightBridge??? Very much worth it to save for another month or two. I just don't see the value in the new "Standard" edition. It looks like a slightly updated version of a P2V+...

    What does it have that the P2V+ didn't have?

    better camera
    better gimbal
    more powerful motors and ESCs
    better props

    That about right?
