    Any idea how much faster the P3 will be, laterally and vertically?

    Weird...so not really faster than a P2. Am I blind and not seeing any range numbers vs. an Inspire?

    It's not hard to compare the specs to find out.
    Range is the same
    Transmitting Distance (outdoor and unobstructed) 2 km

    In everything except the propulsion system this is essentially an Inspire 1

    Thanks....I was about to pull trigger on I1 but just pre-ordered professional to check it out. The appeal to me over my P2/H4-3D is the quick setup, integration between app/quad, addtl features and portability. We shall see how it unfolds. I guess I will wait to sell my P2 after I find out if the P3 is really shipping on 4/22.

    I like the flappyness of the Inspire

    I know what you meant gfd, but how many moving parts on that [Aspire] gear?
    15, 25, plenty of things to break!
