So I got my P4 in June 2016. Since then I've logged 215 flights, 44 hours, and 800,000 meters. Still on first set of rotors. in fact if not for bug strikes it would look new. My primary use is photography and cinematography and I am reaching a full terabyte between the two. I have nothing but praise for this machine and I certainly have not babied it. In fact the only mishap was a gust of wind flipped it over when it wasn't even running. Those were 40mph gusts, I have flown more than a few times in those conditions. I live on the eastern Sierra and have flown from below sea level in Death Valley to 12,000 feet near mount Whitney. Lots of high speed close proximity (less than a foot) flying. Not hotdogging--just for the video. It says here top speed was 28 m/sec, 63 mph. I don't even know when I did that. I fly up to 2 miles away routinely. I cannot overstate the satisfaction and good quality images it has brought me. The precision and build quality make me look like an expert, which I am certainly not! It is just as enjoyable now as it was in June--so much fun that I REALLY don't want to crash it. I use an iPad Pro and an iPad Air without a single glitch. I have a terabyte to share but have to learn the best way to do that. Is it better to provide links or upload here? I am putting together a YouTube channel just for the P4. I've learned a lot here so owe y'all some pics and vids. Thanks for listening to my horn blowing--I have no one else that understands drone fever.

Great pictures and even better story. Out of curiosity what series remote do you have? GL300B or C?

And be sure to post a link to your youtube!
