    Hi
    I'm about to take my P3A (that I purchased here in the USA) to Europe for a short vacation . Beyond the obvious of having to acquire a wall/socket adapter, are there no-no's in using my drone in Europe?
    In particular:
    - As they use 220v, will that damage any of my equipment (charger , battery, drone, controller)?
    - I also understand that distances are less than what I could achieve here in the US. Is that correct?

    Many thanks.

    Check the fine print on your controller.
    If it's like mine, it says Input 100V-240V ... and will be fine.
    The transmission output power will be less but in a good interference-free zone you'll still get good distance.
    It might be a little less punchy dealing with interference.
