hi guys just upgraded to a phantom 3 standard from a bugs 5w first flight tomorrow paid £170 second hand for it its immaculate checked everything and all works as it should anything i need to know before i fly it ?
I've had my P3S since they were first released. Though kinda old, still a good bird, good video, and does everything I want it to. You'll enjoy yours. 1) Go fly it and get comfortable with flying and maneuvering it before you concentrate on photos and videos 2) learn to fly both GPS and ATTI 3) If it flies well, don't be tempted to upgrade; no longer supported by DJI so updates mostly to add flight restrictions. I have NEVER applied an update and my old bird flies great. 4) always take off with fully charged batteries 5) watch battery level: bring it home around 30% to be safe 6) avoid flying over water or around trees until you are skilled 7) read the online manual on the DJI site - twice or more; watch a few YouTube videos 8) don't get distracted while flying 9) don't fly in winds over 20mph 10) did I mention stay away from trees? They eat Phantoms. Depth perception at first can be deceiving. Good luck and good flying.
I too recently bought a P3s and must say it is so easy to fly in GPS mode and very rewarding I feel. The pics and video are good quality. I just installed the magic power mod to see if it'll help with video signal cutting out. Other than that no issues!
