I recently had an accident with my P4 and now have the controller but no drone for it :-(. I was thinking of mailing it to my son who has the P3 Standard. He likes how the controller feels as opposed the the P3 controller. Will it work?

Thanks

My vote is for no. While they could work, i'm betting they made them not work.
But it can't hurt to ship it, and see.

I expect others with more knowledge and experience than me will confirm this but I would say NO because a standard P3 uses Wifi and the P4 uses Lightbridge. The P3A and P3P remotes would be fine to use with a P4 because they both use Lightbridge but not the standard P3. A short while ago there was a suggestion on this forum that the P3A &P3P remotes had a better range than the P4 remote especially in wooded areas but I don't know if that was confirmed or not.

Thank you all for your responses. I was beginning to doubt it myself.

Only the P3S remote controller is compatible with the P3S.
