I just got my Phantom 3 last saturday and I have a lot of issues, comments, concerns and worries. I just keep reading ddaily the comments and threads from all DJI users and I see that there are a lot of problems yet... I love all this DJI products but with this P3 I just feel incomplete... Am I the only one?

Generally people who are not having problems are out flying; why spend time posting how much you enjoy your new craft?

I love it too.  Compared to my FC40, the P3 Pro is an amazing flight machine.  I haven't had any of the issues I've be reading about (I follow instructions).   Now, the camera - I'm not an accomplished photographer so I have to learn that part the hard way.

I love mine. No Issues. The RTH works great. Flight Characteristics are great and the camera is working good! My only gripe is no Lens Cap and ND filter and the fact that the packaging was very poor.

I'm loving mine too. Had 1 compass failure that lasted about 6 seconds and it was studying away for the time the error occurred but it corrected itself quick and haven't had an issue since.  Been 6 batteries since it happend so far

I have lots of RC Heli's (as well as cars, trucks & boats) and the Phantom 3Pro is my first MultiRotor/Quad/Drone. This thing is the greatest thing since, I don't know what. Zero issues from unboxing, to updating firmware to flying and taking the coolest pics I've ever taken! I wouldn't give this thing back if they made me.

I have yet to have one complaint. Period.

Loving mine!  So much better then my P2V+.  I don't have to worry about checking for satellite coverage before I go flying as I always have more then 10+.  So much more stable then the P2V+ at all altitudes.  Loving the 4k and options to control the picture better.  And 720p to the tablet/phone screen (with minimal lag)!

For me. the P3 is a completely different experience then the P2V+.  I've let some friends fly it (who flew the P2V+ before) and they've all agreed.  

The only thing I'm annoyed at is that I can't buy any extra batteries... yet.  Having to wait for the battery to cool down before charging it kinda sucks.  Once the batteries are available, not really looking forward to breaking them in like I have with this one.  Oh well, not really that big of an issue anyway.

Most product forums are a place where people that are unhappy with that product gather and share problem stories. Not that that is a bad thing, it's just that people who are happy, are going to be out enjoying themselves. If my customer reference number being 19,487 means that is how many they had sold by that particular time, there are waaaay more people who are NOT complaining than who are complaining.

This thing is deep.....almost too much to believe.
I keep finding things that need explored - like the history of your flights and some "moments" from each of them.....

This is a $2,000+ quad for $1,000.
At that price I'll take a couple burps.....or, more accurately, if you pay $3K for an Inspire or 5 to 10K for other quads, you will also find parts which need improvement. So call me cheap...I'd rather spend less.

Awesome piece of what I describe a professional aerial platform camera. No issues and 100% improvement over what I thought was an already stellar P2V+. The software and flight logging is completely awesome. Dive on in buddy!!

I'm a rookie and I love mine. Been out with it the last 4 days in a row straight after work. Definitely going to be getting a couple of extra batteries as soon as they are available. I haven't even touched the camera setting nor explored dji pilot fully yet!

I very encouraged by the overwhelming positive comments. I'v have not received mine as yet and was very nervous of buying $1000. worth of headaches. No now, thanks to this post.
Also, as the owner of a P2V+, i can't believe things could get any better. I was always amazed when that machune lifted off. And now the P3......can't wait!!

Absolutely love it so-far, but only one maiden voyage two days ago (rained yesterday).  Amazing quad for the price.  I've had & lost a P1 (two+ years ago), and also have a Steadidrone QU4D.  In comparison, the P3P is an awesome integrated package.

I agree. I receive mine tomorrow and reading through this forum you would think these things are dropping out of the skies by the truckloads lol :-S

Still very excited either way, problems or no problems.

What was your problem? I had this problem too.. I cant record any video or take any picture. The screen goes all dark the GPS connection is lost and after 6 secs it returns again... Is this similar to yours?

I think I saw your thread showing the fingerprint.  I'm sorry to ask this after you've sent it back, but are you aware that there's a clear lens cover which can be removed by unscrewing it?  It's possible it could have been cleaned.  It's not obvious because the edge is smooth, not knurled as you would expect from something that can be unscrewed by hand.  I have even seen DJI employees deny the existence of any threads which could be used to add a filter, but it's definitely there.  (At least on my Advanced model.)

I am having a blast - 14 flights so far up to 1,000 feet up and 1 mile out.  I had an odd issue with the gimbal after I had gone into IOC mode and back which disappeared after I ran a couple calibrations and one issue where it seemed to lose GPS for about 5 seconds.  Other than that no problems.

Well, I THOUGHT I was happy.  Tickled to death actually but maybe I'm wrong.  It could be I'm just obsessive-compulsive and can't stop buying these things... this makes my fifth.

I really like my P3 so far.  I am only on my fourth low level flight taking the approach of 10 flights at 10 minutes each during the testing period I like to follow.
