    So I was lucky enough to score my P4 before Apple fixed their glitch. I wanted to put up a video for anyone who wants to see the new P4 unboxed by an average Joe.
    *Disclaimer* I'm a Phantom Noob and I've never unboxed anything like this before. So bare with me.
    Here's the link.

    Ok. So I'm an idiot. Nothing new. Thanks everyone for explaining how the batteries fit. Makes the case a little better but still not enough protection for me. I'm just glad the filters fit. Thanks for the feedback.

    I thought your maiden flight looked good. Great control.... It was almost as though you had it on a string

    Is there a significant difference between the Styrofoam of the case you had for the P3P and the case that the P4 comes in? From the video they look pretty similar, if they are it seems someone could offer an outer shell for the stock case making it a cheaper alternative.
