I'm new to the hobby and was wondering if any of you guys or gals( if there is any, I feel like im the only girl here) ;) could tell me how reliable the Phantom 3 is? Preferably the advanced or professional. How many hours of flight time could I possibly get out of one? Or better yet how many hours have you clocked on your P3? Thanks. And I'm sorry if this might be a stupid question. ;) ;) ;)

Not a stupid question. I have 3 P3A drones. All have many miles/hours on them. Very reliable/well engineered machines.

I don't fly for long distances so my overall miles are not as great as others. I think mine is so far around 500 miles in this past 12 months.

Phantoms in general are very reliable and built well. You'll likely sell your Phantom before any of the major parts wear out from normal usage.

Welcome aboard Kaleesi. You will come to learn that the Phantom is a terrific AC. A major step up from flying toy grade quads for me. Just take it slow, and have fun. Flight times vary especially with the cold weather as lipo batterys hate cold. The simulator on the DJI GO app is a great way to practice, and get a feel of the AC. Any questions always ask the community on here as somebody will most likely know, and help you out. This is a hobby where it's always advancing so we all learn new things. An early Happy birthday to you as well , and enjoy that Phantom, and fly safe
