    Integrated lightbridge with dual camera ground image tracking for indoor flight stability (like the Inspire 1)

    ya, i would also, if you have a phantom 2 + v3, you could just add the camera to the system

    It's basically a Phantom 2 / Inspire 1 love child....

    If I'd just bought an Inspire 1 I'd be really pissed!

    Can the 4k drop back to 1080@60fps? Or is it fixed?

    Going to have to keep an eye on the sales section!! Good deals are sure to be on the way!
    I don't have a 4k tv or need the sonar thing so I'll be picking up another P2V! Lol!

    If that's the real price range..........I'm very impressed and happy to see that. I was about to purchase a Inspire 1...............I don't see a need for that beast now. Then again, maybe the Inspire 1 price may drop. It will be a wait and see.

    Most of the goodness of an Inspire in the convenience of a Phantom shell - for less than half what Inspire owners have paid!
    Now ... which batteries and what's the performance like and when is it available?

    One of the reasons I resisted the urge to get an Inspire... For "GoPro" quality video I think the Inspire is more machine than needed.... and the P3 kinda illustrates that point.

    The Inspire should be carrying a Sony NEX camera or better... IMO

    I bought a PV2+ less than a month ago and the gimbal is deficient, so i will ask for a refund and maybe buy a PV2+ for half the original price or the PV3pro... tough choice

    94º - yes it's a wide angle lens - same as the Inspire
    Less than the 140º of the P2V+ but without the fisheye

    Wow I've just sold my P2V+ for $900 so shouldn't be too painful to upgrade :)
    I read there's no waypoint "mission" facility in the app (not that I use it but it's a shame)
