    Hi Yhern023- there is no concrete date yet as DJI is still hush hush on release but we might be expecting those units to arrive to our facility by early May before the date on their website.

    Can you verify that the prop threads are the same as the P2 and V+ please?
    I'm going to get a balancing rod, but would like to verify this first.
    Thank you.

    There's reports of warranty issues if the shell is opened.

    Is this true? If so...

    Is there some sort of 'tamper proof' control in place (label, etc.)?

    Yes they are the same i just did a test fit as well. The P3 propellers are even labeled 9450 just as the P2 are.

    While the props may fit, are the prop hubs the same?

    Can you test range or you can't fly it?

    They have made it a lot more work to open as the removed all the phillips screw heads and replaced them with torx. They also have less parts as everything now is mostly a one piece board. I will not open the shell just yet but there is believed to be something showing the case was opened.

    While we can fly it we are looking at a range similar to the Inspire. Since we only have one battery a range test will not be performed any time soon.

    As of now this seems to be the case, oddly enough.

    Is the base (legs with compass) the same width/dimensions as the PH2?

    No. P3 is taller and wider. Pretty sure this has been covered quite completely by now.
