Odd.....seems like this would undercut Phantom 4 sales. Why pay the extra money for P4 when you could get this? Discontinue P4 and create a new P3? Strange......seems regressive to me.

Well I just happened to be in Shenzen in China so went to the DJI Store.  Saw lots of nice drones.  

The P3S SE looks good with all the specs.

This seems to me like DJI had a bunch of P3 laying around and they didnt want to discard them so they added a couple of sensors and are selling them as "the new thing". I bet everything is still the same inside. The price is good though

It looks like more of an update/replacement for the Phantom 3 Standard. As I can see it doesn't use Lightbridge technology unlike the other Phantoms and the remote is also the same as for the Standard, only with a tablet holder added.

But there's already a replacement for the Phantom 3. Its called the Phantom 4

Understood. But there is the P3 Advanced and P3 Pro that I thought replaced the P3 Standard?

It just seems odd to me for a company to have already made the next iteration of a product, discontinued that next iteration (P4), then circled back focus energy to develop a new iteration of an old product line. Very strange.... I don't understand the logic.

When I saw this post I thought it was a joke. Why would DJI go back to Phantom 3? Thats like Apple coming out with an iPhone 4X or Samsung with a Galaxy S3 F lol

I see your point, but the 4K, Advanced and Pro are equipped with lightbridge and a more advanced controller and have higher prices. The SE is basically a Standard with vision positioning and 4K added. Even the camera looks exactly like the Standard camera, with no changeable filters on the lens or extra ventilation on the gimbal.

I really don't see the point of P3SE when you have a P4, P4A and P4P.

I've had one of these for a week or so now, imported to the UK from tomtop.  You guy's seem to be missing the added distance (4km) for wireless and live feed video.
Camera is 4K video. 2.8 aperture.

Amazing piece of kit for the price. My first drone, well pleased with it so far.

Dougie.
p.s. some forums are suggesting the reason as 'getting rid of the old stock spare parts', most likely true = 80%

Because, concurent like the french Parot (bebop drone) by example is cheaper than the P3 Pro Advanced and 4K.

Would have been smarter to keep the Inspire 1 in production. I can't get past the looks of the phantom, design hasn't changed yet, and the props seem to always make it into the shot.

Looks like it replaces the p3 4k which might have been getting confused with the p4 line.

What about Litchi?  Back in April they said "Phantom 3 SE is not yet supported, we are waiting new DJI SDK supporting this aircraft."  Will DJI be releasing the necessary SDK so the aircraft will work with Litchi?

Seems to me that they want to sell you a new product vs. fixing the firmware issues.

Having owned a P3SE in the UK for a month or so now I can happily say it's a great machine, there has been teething issues which I've worked out but it's a good little machine for the price. Example, I got 5km range last night before losing feed, that in itself was pretty awesome!
