I have been putting off buying a P3 advanced (maybe professional) until some reviews come back. Its been out a while now and I am wonderng what you guys think and want to hear some of your experiences. Couple of questions:
What is the REAL flight time
Any word on a ground station?
How much distance can you get FPV?

I am thrilled about the lightbridge tech so how is it working?

- 18 minutes flight time on average
- No word on ground station
- It depends. The range is impressive though.
- Lightbridge works well for me.

18 to 20 minutes of flight time.

Range so far has been good, been out a mile and held GPS, usually have 18 to 20 satellites when I've been flying.

Lightbridge has worked very well for me as well.

Ditto all comments above. Not a single "Issue" for me. Both firmware updates went fine. P3P running the latest FW with no problems.

My experience is about what others have reported:

18 - 20 minutes on relatively un-seasoned batteries and 1KM+ in distance.

stuff i didnt really know when I bought:

lightbridge has about 200ms of delay, its noticeable. but you cant fly aerobatics and stuff with the P3 so its actually a non-issue.

ios devices work better than android devices (for now at least)

also, 500m AGL is max altitude, enforced

I agree with all of the above. Also, I've gone as far as 2 miles away with full reception the entire way. I'd have to say that the lightbridge tech is what has impressed me the most.
