    Sorry if this is a dumb question, will a P3A remote work on a P3S bird?
    Thanks.

    No it will not the circuit board on the standard is completely different from the board on the adv/pro

    It will not because the P3 Pro/Advanced use Lightbridge instead of the Standard's hybrid 5.8 Ghz control/2.4 Ghz Wi-Fi FPV system.

    The good news is you CAN get a P34K controller & it WILL work with your Standard. The P34K controller is virtually identical in appearance & functionality to the one included with the Pro/Advanced. Internally it uses the dual-band hybrid system of the Standard.

    What can I get out of the P34K controller to use with my Standard? What are it's features? Better than the standard's? Thanks.

    P34K controller being used with a P3 Standard. I don't see the radio for P34K listed on the DJI site
    It would be great if someone could confirm or deny this.

    I'm not sure it will work according to the specs on the advanced remote. Looks unlikely. Based solely on the 6000 mAh battery. Lots of voltage.
    Specs below. But only for advance and pro. Could not find specs on 4K alone

    You get the style of the P3 Pro/Advanced controller with all of the extra buttons & bells & whistles. If I recall correctly its specs state it is a bit more powerful than the Standard controller too. I don't see the P34K controller listed as a standalone component on DJI yet so you'd have to check for someone selling one from a lost or crashed P34K.
