So I couldn't wait any longer. I just ordered a P3P w xtra battery via Amazon, fulfilled by DronesMadeEasy and it's already shipped from San Diego, I live in NY. I've already spent a lot of time here over the past week, learned a lot, need to learn way more. I also ordered a Hubsan X4 H107L since I've never RC'd before and have read here that this little guy might help me learnhow to fly before taking on the P3P. Thx for everyone's help so far...starter tips welcome and appreciated!!
