    I own a AR Drone 2.0 and have been flying for about 4 months.

    Just couldn't resist any longer and am now the proud new owner of a P2 H4-3D.

    Just wanted to share my new born pics ;)

    thanks man, I am currently flying a hero 3 but that will be changing in the near future ;)

    hero 4 black in my amazon cart :D (btw, h4-3d does just fine with the hero 3. I had read that and tis true...)

    but the jump from 720p jello-ized to 1080p with no jello is leaps and bounds ahead of what I was doing.

    and I have yet to fly any long distance, but this thing puts the AR to shame. I would typically lose wifi on my AR and mini iPad at around 140 feet.

    thanks man...

    i really can't help. i had a gopro already, so from a financial stand point the h4-3d made more sense for me.

    best of luck...

    I'm pretty easy going so I was in no way offended...

    appreciate you stepping up, but I'm good with some questions if people have them...

    here you go Robak...

    I have a battery in the P2 and spots for 2 more(had my spare on the charger at this time), the front slot holds 8 propellers. the back slot hold the charger, tools, extra screws, etc... and the slot on the right currently will hold my mini ipad for wifi streaming from the gopro. however that slot will in the future hold an FPV monitor.

    as you can see, I still have a little growing room. I do plan on an FPV system and some clip-on leg extenders that get the gimbal further away from the ground.

    I am pretty pleased with it so far ;)

    Approximately 20-25 mins. Too be honest I haven't paid that much attention.

    When I get a chance I will look at the video I filmed when I all but ran out the battery...


    EDIT: battery does not last 20-25 mins. not paying attention caused me to set a timer when flying now. I set it for 12 mins and when it goes off I wrap up what I am doing and land.
