    I received my P2V+ today! I ordered it yesterday from DDM and had it shipped overnight. Got it unpacked and started charging everything up. Took a LONG 3.5 hours to charge the extender. When it was all charged up I turned her on in the house to take a look at the iphone app and make sure I knew what I was doing before I flew her outside. I was a little nervous on her first takeoff. She was very easy to fly. I built up a little more confidence and flew her around the neighborhood. I took about 10 minutes of video and brought her down to take a look. I need to improve my video skills. I put the second battery in and took her up to 400’. I did some slow 360 pans, flew over my house, and did some other things to improve my video skills. I set her down and was excited to see my new and improved video. I pulled the card out of my P2V+, plugged it into my imac and ………….

    Crap, I forgot to turn the video on! :oops:

    Oh well, I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s done this!

    Now I’m charging everything back up for some night flying! I won’t forget the video this time.

    YES please post some night video footage, I haven't gotten my phantom yet and am dying to see how the night footage will turn out compared to previous phantom's.

    It has no better night vision than the P2V, at least with default camera settings. I haven't tried tweaks.
