    Well done Doug, it is a matter of time and then I see you flying in Europe.

    By the way, at what height have you flown?

    10 times further than I ever got my P3S to go .Litchi missions fixed the problem though:) It now checks the water levels in three tanks for me 7km round trip all at 12-14m AGL
    I am not far north of you .

    In Australia we are only allowed to fly at 120m above our take off point

    Hey mate this flight was using the go app Basically the P3 SE is a pimped out P3s I really like it but it’s wifi connection can be very Random and easily susceptible to outside interference And is probably the reason I’d never buy a Mav/Air.

    I ended up getting an P3A as well a year later it’s much more reliable connection wise.i also stayed with close to the original firmware versions that they came with .Peoples opinions vary but I am a believer in not upgrading unless there is a problem.

    I share your point of view. With the latest firmware update of the P3SE I have seen many problems.

    We get 3km range on 5Ghz stock so it shouldn't really be a surprise. The stock RC however isnt the best with the little antenna sticking out, so it makes it difficult to achieve range.

    As to why there's so few of us - the P3SE was never sold in Aus so we had to import this.
