If they are afraid to fly now, maybe they should send their Phantom back to where they got it.

Doesnt get better than this ;-)

I thought I had crashed for sure last night.
Ah, but my Phantom 3 Pro' just plowed through some leaves and small tree branches and continues on her merry way.
She flew out the other side. As happy as could be. Hardly a chlorophyll mark on her to be seen.

No, I have never crashed her, nor have I found any "cracks in or around her screw holes"...

An amazing Phantom 3 Pro' she continues to be.

so far updated to 1.3 then 1.4.  1.4 seems to have fixed our camera problms and the pictures are lovely so far.Still flying it daily to break it in, but happy.  P2 fpv had problems last night so hoping to leave it behind and stay with P3P as much as possible now.

Had mine barely a week.  Love it.  One crash, my fault as it auto homed for low battery.  Local store has service and parts.  Documentation and information online seems poor or non existent.  Everything seems to be learned by trying it and figuring it out. No documentation on Go App.  But the products are incredible.  Love my P3 and flew with a guy with his Inspire today and that thing is also amazing.

After flying the Hubsan X4 - the P3 was a piece of cake. The only difficulty I've encountered thus far is with the new Course Lock - first time I tried it - I got confused as to which way to fly to get away from a looming tree - . Too much ATTI practise!!!

The craft itself is a great piece of kit and produces some fantastic video, which is why I took the plunge to be a 'pilot' and I use the term lightly when applying it to myself. If I were to mention another gripe it would be the careless way that it was packed and arrived (it was filthy) and also the dirty way the repair team in Germany sent it back (also filthy with black crayons mark on the bird itself) - when questioned about this they tried to tell me UPS did it! GET REAL!!!

But DJI - technical, OUTSTANDING!  I would definitely buy again and again.

Oh, I forgot to add ... the time it took for the P3 to be sent to Germany and returned was exactly .... (wait for it) ... 8 days.

It left my home on 23/07/2015 at 17:14 - then arrived German 28/07/2015 at 09:06
The faulty VPS was replaced, test flown, repackaged and sent back from Germany on 28/07/2015 at 16:42
and arrived back home on 31/07/2015 at 13:29

Hey, no option for flyaway..... I've lost two P3Ps but my latest one is working perfect.  Trying out the new update features and it looks like they finally got it right.  Have gone from disappointed to a lover (sorry wife).  Would write more but I'm going flying now.

I did consider adding flyways but since there is such an unknown on them it could throw off the votes..... too high KP reading, bad compass calibration, faulty hardware, firmware corruption, bad motor, user error.....just to name a few.

My answer would be: "Minor problems, but nothing serious".
From time to time the app loses connection, but as long as the RC has connection it's not a big problem.
And yes, I have updated the firmware.

Tree'd my P3 40' up in a scotch pine.  It spent the night up there in a rainstorm and most of the next (sunny) day still in the tree.  Rescued after 36 hours, leaking pink juice from every orifice.  Surprisingly enough, no shell cracks, camera/gimble stayed together, battery stayed in.  4 days in the rice box, an opening of the body, quick iso wipe down and back in the air day 5 like a brand new bird!

I'd love to blame DJI and their crappy firmware or app, but i simply can't, i know i right sticked that puppy right into the waiting arms of the tree.  I couldn't even bare to look at the flight log!!!

And the new features are simply working awesome, so yeah no complaints here.  That being said, i never bothered trying to deal with after purchase customer support either, which seems to be the biggest complaint from most peeps.

I haven't had any huge problems, the app runs kinda crappy, and I got a few of the "stress" cracks.  My P3P is at the DJI dealer right now, so we'll see how happy I am when I get it back

Thankfully no. It was not a high point.
Actually it was awkward, I felt rather lame, embarrassing.

I'm still having the dreaded glitches and lagging video feed on the new firmware 1.4 and Dji go app 2.2 it's extremely frustrating trying to get a shot and you can't actually see what your seeing. Running a iPad mini 3 with the p3p.  Any light been shed on this yet or do I just downgrade fw to 1.3.2? Also have the 32ch hack!

Strange I thougt from what I have read here that this was mainly an Android problem. I solved mine (android) but I guess my solution wouldn't help you out. But I am sure you will find a solution. I have found most of the solutions to my problems here on this forum, so keep on digging.

Many have found, the best solution for Phantom 3 Pilots, with Android issues, is iOS!! ;-)

But I also believe the upcoming Apple iPad Air 3, Will become a game changer, for us.

That paired up with the next new deluxe Phantom drone, will be a definite killer combination.

Watch for it... In Apple retail stores even. Now that Apple are selling DJI Phantoms.

My P3P went from 1.1.9 to 1.3.2 to 1.4 something , No problem with updating , no problem with flying . Trying to get use to the new functions . Got POI down OK . Fiddled with Waypoint , need more time on this one . Learned today that if you move from home point , home lock  is , well , not really home lock , as it will obey stick movements in relation to where home point is , not where you are . Course lock and follow work OK .

Had no problem with my Samsung note 3 except for the google app crash . When with Ipad mini 2 LTE/3G , can't really say it works better , obviously a larger screen and no google app crash

Overall very satisfied so far .

Apple have been touting their capability in future editions to project a type of 3D hologram image.
Whether we will ever finally see it... Remains to be a great mystery, but the animations sure look cool...

Don't they?

I personally don't believe any of those videos, so many have been fakes. I mean being able to pick up both iPads at once and they don't bend seems really fishy. The edge to edge display does look quite nice though
