Hello everyone. I sold my parrot AR 2.0 this morning on ebay and went out and bought a DJI Phantom 3 standard about 4 seconds after I saw the sold email. What an amazing quad this thing is. The AR was fun but not even remotely close to this. I have flown it three times and have about 30 min of video and the last flight I turned off the restricted mode and took it out a good ways. I am assuming I will keep this until next year and get a Phantom 4. Anyhow! Greetings from Rochester, NY and glad I found this forum. p.s I bought the blade guards with it for $20. I know they were pricey as I got them from best buy. What is the performance difference between running with the guards and having them off?
