    Yesterday I managed to fly my P3A, stock configuration, 42,020 feet (7.95 Miles) during a single 18 Minute Flight! Landed with ~12% battery remaining. Any ideas (prop change?) on how to lengthen that and maybe hit 10 Miles?

    I think that is far enough anymore and you will have to add a lot of mods to it

    Unbelievable. Were you flying along with it? :)

    Show us the flight map and tell us the secrets.

    Wow, I'm shocked by the distance reported here. I'd say that's already pretty impressive.

    I got that this weekend with mine at the beach. I did not follow it, I was really almost 7.8 miles away.

    Just get it up to 1600 feet and fly in one direction until your battery runs out, you'll likely get >10 miles, perhaps 20.
