what is the average max range people are getting with no modification to their P3?

Edit: I should add I mean for both fpv and control range

I live in the Arizona desert and can fly my P3P out over 4 miles with no problems. The issue is the battery, when I get back it's around 5%. Not good for the battery or my nerves. As soon as we have a good windless day, I'm going to attempt 5 miles. Wish me luck.

Wow, you have bigger ones that me. 5% is cutting it pretty dang close! What altitude are you flying at when you went that far?

I'm flying across a river and then up hill. When I turn around, the altitude from where I'm at is 700'. But, by looking at the landscape on the screen, I'm around 250 - 300' above the ground. Flying up slope with nothing to interfere, seems to keep the signal strong.

I've only gone 5000 feet away so far, could have gone further but there was no point. 5000ft. is nearly a mile too.

Just over 8000 feet with still full signals .in country side and was at 300 feet altitude.
37mph on outward trip about 20 all way back .
Landed with 55% battery left.
I suspect 10000 feet + is easly possible.
This is in UK so only on lower power CE mode

In my experience flying into a 5mph wind is best so you have a little speed on the way back. I can predictably turn back at 50% bat and sail home in gps mode when its 4-5 mph. Any more you dont make it as far any less i better turn back at 55-60% bat

I got just over 2 miles with home made windsurfers (not sure if you consider that a modification or not).

With bone stock P3P, I got 10,025' before video dropped (still had control).

On my first long range attempt, I went out 8,724 ft. from our rocketry site to the CAP canal before starting to lose FPV.

Took some shots of the canal and headed back. There are some high-tension power lines in-between, so I didn't want to get tangled up with them. Was able to see the tower on the way back in, stopped and dropped down to get a fix on height for future reference.

I got 14,444 feet today with a completely non modified Phantom 3 Advanced. I did have to go above 1000 feet, but it's because I was going towards the mountains and needed to climb.
