I wish I could Answer.... My P4P has not shipped yet.  If its like any other Phantom Im sure it will have many more features then I need,  including a few I wish it didn't. I wish they would create an option that would allow me to display the lat and long of the bird in real time if I choose...

Ill vote once I have a few days to spend with the bird.... if it ever gets here

Ah, you're most welcome. I hate to bother people, but if it's better to have it correct, then so be it.
Thanks for appreciating it.

Had mine for a a few days, much better in all respects than my 3 standard with argtek. Flies wonderful, camera is great, great range , cant fault it so far, worth the money from my point of view. Battery life is good even in cold UK weather. More than happy

I'm disappointed that 3rd party apps can't be installed on the +, if you are planning on using it for photogrammetry, I would skip on the + and just get the pro and separate tablet. the screen is a bit on the small side anyway.

hopefully they will add app support shortly though.

I'm happy. I do hope DJI support improves as the rollout frenzy recedes, the product matures, and we users become more experienced.

The jury is still out for me. I'm a pro operator and bought the original P4, Largely because I didn't believe the hype. I was wrong, it was outstanding.

I traded up to P4p+ with high hopes.  There are niggles, I had a very nasty moment with total signal loss at 200feet altitude, 10 metres away, clear sky - what the hell? I put it down or 5.8ghz in the UK - not proven.

I'm still experimenting with camera strings, h265 is voracious to edit and has finally seen off my ivy-bridge i7 cpu, waiting to see what a new Broadwell-e cpu makes of it tomorrow.  

I see a lot of  the HD stream on the ground breaking up, stuttering at short range, under 100m unobstructed, not what I was expecting.

Wind warning? Really? What happens when it's actually windy I wonder?

I'm really not sure about an integrated screen either, It's too small for me - I'm used to using an iPad Pro with my p4, I'm not an android fan at the best of times, and this is locked down to Hell to make matters worse.

Having said all that, DJI are pretty good at sorting stuff out in the end, I think I'm going to love it soon I hope. I don't yet though!

I also have a full spec inspire 2 on order, I hope it's a little better sorted than the P4P+

There are a few bugs that can be fixed with a new firmware but it's a big step up from P3P that I had before. Really happy that they put a 1" sensor and 24mm lens on it instead of 20mm in P3P. Way more useful.

Upgraded from a P3A and am really happy with it. Sure there will be some improvements with newer firmware releases but that's always the way with technology. Some people seem to have multiple axes to grind with DJI but I have had no issues with them or any of the hardware I've bought (Phantoms, osmo, accessories etc). They should be congratulated for the amazing technology they have pioneered and where they are taking it.

Although I had some initial problems with the firmware, all seems to be fixed after downgrading-calibrating-updating. I am very pleased with its performance and it is a joy to fly around. The camera is pretty awesome in my opinion.

I think you'll change your mind in time to come. This aircraft is insanely stable and if you have radio issues, its likely local interference. The yaw stability is giving my Inspire 1 a beating, especially in high wind. Image quality is excellent. This craft is a marvel, it truly is.

Wind warning is yet another thing that will never work properly, every time I fly at full throttle I get a high wind warning. Pointless

My huge initial problem with the P4P is the New DJI GO4 app.

My house is located within a restricted airspace (Disneyland, yet I'm 4miles away from Disneyland.. not even in the same city) and I can't even fly my Phantom 4 Pro at my own house!

In my opinion, it is not DJIs fault that you live in a restricted air space area.

So I don't think that a negative vote is fair.

The question though was if you are generally happy with your P4P, which I have answered. Not saying it's permanent, it may change in the future. My friends P3A can fly as he uses the original DJI Go app, yet a P4P with the new DJI GO 4 App cannot take off.

Then it's still not an issue with the P4P, it's an issue with the GO4 app.

My first drone, mesmerised, had to do a return journey of 330 miles to Dublin on Christmas eve to pick it up, they got 8 in and had one left !!! Picked the pro as photography is a hobby of mine, would have loved to get the Mavic but they are impossible to source, pity it doesn't come with a hard copy of the user manual especially considering the cost of the drone, wonder if it is possible to buy one, spent over a day familiarising myself with the basic controls and updating drone and control firmware, activating and registering it, took it out twice, today to the cliffs near Galley head, problems with focusing, work perfectly yesterday....My first post here so regards to all....Charles

The DJI site doesn't list the P4P or P4P+ in the comparison tool.  What are the differences? Adorama says they both have the included display device.  Can you still use the draw route feature if you don't use their display device?  Thanks.
