    Well, I got my phantom 3 today, I charged up the batteries, controller, and updated all the firmware. Headed out to the field to get a feel of it. No issues at all. It felt good just being able to go out and have some fun. My TBS discovery pro has only had problems since I built it, so this was a nice change. The glare off of my phone was a little rough at times, but I am going to get some head plays to fix that problem. Nothing too crazy on it. Healthy drones is telling me I flew for 4 miles total, no distance from me, Furthest I got from me was 571ft, and highest alt was 200Ft..Nothing too crazy, but still loving this thing.
