    Hi crew,

    Have just purchased a P3 Advanced and awaiting its arrival. As you are all operators of the aircraft what mods do you recommend should be made to software and/or hardware?

    I am hoping the GPS doesn't have the same signal issues as a previous owned P2V+. Any other advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    When I received my advanced, I avoided the updates, the bird flys beautifully

    Hi Jadflyer
    If you are interested in FPV I would defo advise the DJI HDMI mod for your RC, you get fantastic full HD output to you goggles or DVR, the Mod allows you to view and control the bird as normal through the Ipad/phone etc, but gives you great FPV feed at the same time, and with telemetry, check it out at this link
    Amazon.com: DJI Phantom 3 - HDMI Output Module, Pro/Adv. (White): Camera & Photo
    Regards

    No "mods" are really needed to get full enjoyment from the P3.

    If you want to make a little easier I'd recommend the following in order:

    Extra batteries
    Extra batteries
    Extra batteries
    Carrying case
    Aftermarket gimbal lock
    Litchi app
    Good tablet for better display
    Extra batteries

    I did just realize that you've owned a P2 so you already know about the extra batteries.
