    I know this has been asked and asked, but there is lots of confusion out there so I thought it would be helpful (me included!) for people to just list their MAXIMUM distance they have flown. Please only give a NUMBER and nothing else. Remember this is for stock equipment only. Assume P-GPS, wide open rural area or over water, no interference, good weather, clear LOS with no obstructions.

    Are you in NFZ, or your P3A has gone kaput?

    I had a P1 that likely when way over 100 miles. Dropped it the in ocean and the tide took it out from eastern US in the Atlantic. Had floats on so didnt sink. Does that count?
