I've been flying my P4 for about 14 months and am amazed by the reliability and durability.
I was wondering how much use others have gotten out of their P4 and if anyone has had any issues due to the age of parts like motors, batteries etc. Attached is my AirData UAV Log Page, post yours as well!

Wolfboy I did get some long distance shots and a few close up mortar shells my son shot.
I will try and edit the video and submit it
Here on your post.
I warn you though I'm not very savvy when it comes to editing video and posting vids but I will try.

Had mine since May, 2016. 3 Batts approx 40 cycles each. Two issues: Recent takeoff had prop spin off, even after double checking, had to bend the locking springs up slightly(but not too much or will have trouble getting prop back off). Was going to replace motor tops with different design but instead had made a no-go gauge to check spring height periodically. I suspect one of the motor protectors was on incorrectly while traveling in the backpack, since the spin off happened twice on same motor. No problem first time, thought I didn't double check, but last time it had violent tip over and camera gimbal separated at the horizontal motor. Camera was hanging by the ribbon cable, just snapped the motor back together and worked for several flights and then lost pic and gimbal functions. Replacing ribbon cable this weekend. No other problems, I still can't believe I haven't crashed or lost it yet, like I'm expecting it each flight. Good luck
