    Dronefly seems to be a pretty good outfit. Since I purchased the original Phantom before September, I qualify for a rebate of $150 due to the fact that DJI dropped the price right after I bought it.

    Dronefly sent me an email and said they processing payment.

    My new vision has 2 antenna wires instead of 1 like the first one, interesting.

    That bundle of wires is the compass but i think he means there are other two antenna´s.
    In total he has 3 now and i have that also now. With the first PV i had only got one antenna and the compass.

    All i know is that my new PV came with a second shipment to the dealer and that my first PV came with the first shipment to the dealer.

    Edit: Another difference is that on the new phantom i did not have to calibrate the compass (of course i did that anyway in the field) and that the battery was not totally inside the PV when i opened the box with the new one. So there are some difference with how they send the PV´s

    My Vision arrived with the me the day after release (i.e. it must have been one of the first production run models) and it has 2 antenna wires (and 1 compass, obviously)...

    Odd that others' first run models did not.

    That is interesting. Mine came with two antennas as well. Never thought anyone would get any differnent configuration.

    Two antennas are usually called Phased Antennas, which often have more gain.
