    **What are the must haves** Thanks for the add, my amazing wife hooked me up with a P3P for Christmas, I have flown it, did all the firmware updates, now I am surfing the internet looking for must haves. Appears I need to get at least 2 more batteries, a case, any thing else? She did get my a 64gb micro SD Card and a Mirco SD usb card reader. I will be using an ipad 2 mini on the controller.
    Thanks in advance

    You seem to already have the amazing wife, so you are good there. With regards to your P3P, here are a few good suggestions.

    My order....

    Extra batteries
    Carrying case
    Lanyard if you like them (I don't)
    3D printed gimbal lock
    Charger that charges 3 batteries at same time ("blue" charger)
    Good car inverter (not cheap one)
    Litchi app
    Manual (light) discharger

    I'd not go too far down the list until you fly quite a bit and know it's something you want to do for awhile. You don't need anything beyond the batteries and perhaps the case to _really_ enjoy the hobby to its fullest extent.

    PhantomHelp is your go to site. Stick with Dji for parts and accessories. I got the Tarot Transmitter Tray with Palm Rests. Some items will enhance your flying experience.
