    Would love to see people's p3 setups. Here are a few shots of mine. The only thing I don't have on mine in the picture is a getterback recovery kit and the gimbal guard which are still in transit.

    Yes I have the strong arms bits installed. I've also got a Marco Polo if you can see it attached on the side. Your attachment location is nice.

    . I just started using them this week. When I fly from my patio I have lots of trees around and with limited testing, I am getting more distance before "weak signal" pops up. I don't have any quantitative data.

    No. With the props spinning there's way too much air moving for it to warm up.
