    Even longer flight time would always be welcome :idea: :cool:

    #1: Better camera
    #1: Gimbal
    #3: Ability to attach any antenna wo/drilling holes, pulling stuff apart, etc
    #4: Follow me mode
    #5: Fix the 3300' bug in the app
    #6: Improved compass calibration - I am not happy with it
    #7: Circle a point of interest (POI)

    And if we don't ever get the waypoint/autonomous flight plan feature in P2V, add that too.

    Better camera, follow me mode, 3300 app bug, 2 axis gimbal and maybe 3 axis, 1080p FPV (which should be transferrable tech from the lightbridge they just released) and hopefully batteries that aren't proprietary and cost $160!

    Whatever they do for the next version it would nice if at least some of the new features were backwards compatible with the original. However the thing on the top of my wishlist would be for the batteries to come down in price by about 33% - there must be enough P2 platforms out there now to justify a drop in the retail price, as opposed to giving one extra free with new purchases...

    I don't really like the fish eye effect in the camera, and I wish it had a nice gimbal so even if it's breezy it'll shoot good video.

    How about fisheye removal in the app! That would be sweet.

    Perhaps another pair of rotors for redundancy and stability. Rather than a replacement for the p2v make it an upgraded nicer version in every way.

    For the Phantom 3?

    Obviously, I want everything that's planned for the Phantom 4 ...

    You know - FVP via Google Glass, omni-directional proximity sensors, warp drive, cloaking device, full shields, tractor beam, etc.

    Nothing special ... just the basics :)

    I think warp drive is an absolute must.
    Also if we can replace the rotor blades with the stuff that makes hover boards work, that would be great.

    4. ability to customize controls on controller
    5. a 2 or 3 axis gimbal

    Camera based on Ambarella A9 chip (1 year old technology) (image stabilization, 4K etc.)
    Camera placed further to the front, minimizing the rotors-in-shot.
    3-axis gimbal with external camera antennae
    Quieter rotors
    Higher capacity batteries
    Pre-programmed flight cource
    "Follow the transmitter in my pocket at 10 meters distance, 10 meters height, at an 45 degree angle" device (use your proximity sensors to avoid flying into things, please)

    Proximity sensors! (ARdrone uses them for attitude already)
    - No more flying into trees on return-to-home
    - Safe(r) indoor flying
    - Autonomous flying without GPS eg. damaged structures etc. for search and rescue

    :D

    A reasonable price for batteries and allowing 3rd party batteries.

    Yes, I don't care for the fish eye effect of the camera either, but my main wish would be a better system for viewing, rather than the I-phone.. Just so aggravating, especially in the sun.. I would like the glasses, like the fat shark, but can't they make them so you could connect directly, as you do with the I-phone, without having to have a separate transmitter installed on the copter?
