Saw the Phantom 3 Standard at Costco and I am very interested. What would I experience if I fly with wifi only and no data plan? I am anxious to get this before they sell out but I don't want to be disappointed for the lack of a data plan. Will the camera work any different and will the range be limited? Thanks

What you're asking is - Will it be okay to fly without an internet connection? The answer is yes. Camera will work the same. Range won't be affected. You'll just need to cache the maps for the area you plan to fly beforehand. If you don't, you won't show maps of the area you're flying in.
