I've had my P4 for nearly 2 weeks now and I like it a lot. It's my first bird and it flies great. I have been really feeling misled and lied to by DJI promising a drone that flies 3.5 km and can last for 28 minutes. After flying a few times nearly every forum has verified that the P4 cannot outdo the P3. Yes, I do really like the obstacle avoidance and active track but these lies from DJI have made me think about returning my P4
To the Apple Store and buying a P3A or P3P instead. Just curious if anyone else considered it and if they acted on it.

If youre not 100% happy with it,take it back and get a P3. If you really dont need 4k ,get the less expensive advanced and pick up a couple extra batteries with the money you saved.

Your battery needs to be conditioned. I always condition my batteries when new by only using 50% capacity for the first 10 charges. You will get longer flight times as the battery is broken in.
I did a test today with a new battery (not recommended) and got 25 minutes. Forward flight in ATTI mode will give you the most efficient flight. It takes more energy to hover (transitional lift).
So, after 15 cycles or so you should get the rated flight time (also temperature/altitude dependent.

And the range is the same as the P3, if you lower the image transmission setting to 4Mbps in custom,you will get the same range as the P3.

I think he should return it, after all the lies about the P3 were much better than the lies about the P4

Pi, I don't have a P4. My comment was simply a frivolous observation that the 'lies' were better for the P3 than the P4.
