    Does anyone know if there is a 2x or 4x teleconverter available for the P3? I have a client that wants me to see if a large building is visible from a certain height for a radio tower and it just shows up as about 6 pixels wide.

    I don't have an answer for your question, sorry. But, you can fly part of the path to get closer, that's what I do for the same purpose. It helps if you recognize the terrain or cityscape.

    The building is a large building downtown but its 8.5 miles away.

    Yah, 8.5 miles is tough, but anything to get closer. The longest path I have checked so far is 11.5 miles (18.6 km), but I was only looking to get over one hill about 2 kms away, and I could recognize the terrain after that. Spotting a building in a cluster of them could be tough.
