    Hey guys, I think I’ve made a big boo boo :/

    Basically I brought a phantom 2 a couple of wees ago and am wanting a decent gimbal, not a cheap one that I have to gig about with wires etc. to get working.
    I was looking at FeiYu but saw some pretty bad things and low and behold all comments rave about the Zenmuse although its so expensive.

    On top of that I would want to get either gopro 3 for Hd or a 4 for either 2.7k or 4k. So with the extra cost of around £350 on top of what I already have spent on Phantom 2 should I send my phantom 2 back and get Phantom 3 and if so which one?

    Any solutions, ideas and pros and cons about my decision would be very helpful.

    Thanks in advance guys J

    In my opinion w/ out a doubt you'll regret not upgrading!

    How you find you p3s?

    You bothered about the distance thing poepl complain about? How d you find the FVP connectivity, how far can you fly before you lose signal with stardard setup?

    Buy a p3a or p3p for the light bridge. It makes a difference in flight distance

    Get a used pro on eBay. I might end up doing that soon

    I have been over 8,000' distance 100% stock. NOT a daily occurrence. Usually about 5,000'. I did not update. I am on FW1.4.6. ;)
