    My 300A contoller's USB stopped working no warning at all. Maplin offered to upgrade me FOC to a new P4 if I wished. I didn't want to so they offered to swap out for a new controller. It was a 300C which I didnt want. They then found a 300B in another store for me.
    Just tried it out today.
    My longest flight ever. 14,000 feet distance totally standard no windsurfers or anything. Furthest I got with my old contoller was 11,000. I could have gone further but RTH kicked in.
    Maplin 300B doesn't have a CE sticker which is unusual - maybe that is why the range is better?
    Anyway very very happy now!!!

    I think I may not bother fitting my DBS mod with a range like that and just get windsurfers instead.
