    Hello, I'm new to this forum site, but been in the background reading other people's experiences.
    I decided to chime in a bit with some feedback on my own experience with this bird.
    I've owned it now for over one month, and have had over thirty full battery flights with no issues.
    Straight from the box i upgraded the firmware to current. First flight was cautious and conservative at 100 ft and visual. The second was a bit more risky at 360 ft but remained visual. And from there, it has grown to over 1/2 mile away at 300 ft.
    All flights were at and above freezing in the Colorado mountains
    No issues!

    And that is the experience of the huge majority of owners, it's just that we don't hear it that often!

    Thank you!! Ordered mine a week ago and still waiting for it to arrive. All the posts on birds dropping, stress cracks, fingers and arms chopped off by hand catching, legs cause it to flip, leg extensions that cause it to flip, batteries that crash, batteries that get cold and cause it to crash, RTH that don't work..... It's really good to hear some positives!! :) joking apart as a new person to flying drones, the forum, despite having a lot of negative outcomes, is invaluable, and other peoples experiences and views will 100% help me fly safer and consider things I would never had thought of.... When I do finally get her.

    I've enjoyed the same awesome experience with my new P3. Its been flawless thus far and nothing but a joy. Gained enough courage to fly over water several times.
