It flipped over first and then crashed?  Sounds like a loose prop or bad motor or bad IMU.  

Crashed first and then flipped over?  Sounds like a bad battery.  It would flash red as it descended.

This was the time when DJI wasn't entirely mature.  Lots of fly aways, flip of deaths, etc.

P2s fly wonderfully even today.  The fly away and/or crash stuff is because the pilots are noobs and don't read the manual.  The cameras are weak though.  

You can make fun of the camera, the FPV, the range, etc.  But you can't diss the ability of the P2 to fly and fly well.  It's rock solid.

I can say the same confidence w/ the P4 but they are on a P2 and you are on a P3.  It's like putting the S800 back in the air when they all kept crashing but saying the Matrice are fine because you have an S600 or 210 V2.

Using anything back then is like having the same issues arise like it's the best of its time.  We are living in the future with better tech.  People are living in the bad best present with their old tech.

It's like using the Ferraris when they caught fire Before they fixed the issues.  It's like using the Boeing 737 MAX Before they've addressed the nose down issues.  It's like living in the chemotherapy system that 90%+ didn't work.  I assume it's a lot better now but if you pull up those old methods w/ the high failure rate it would suck.  Same as the issues with GM having steering wheels Lock while the drivers were driving until they've addressed it.  Same as with the Toyota carpets that were keeping the driver in a full-throttle position.  We use the latest Toyotas now and say they are perfectly ok.  Going back to using anything that was unaddressed and the issues of that time Will come back.  This is the same method as generating positive effects such as involving with good friends and family.  Being in areas of safe haven.  Being in areas where people consider you are a true and good Leader.

Actually the opposite is true.  Whatever kinks that existed "back then" have been fixed within the FW updates more than half a decade ago.  

I'm not on a P3, I have a P3.  I also have a number of P2s.  They don't fly away.  They don't crash.  They don't burst into flames.  They all fly great.  

You should give advice about things you know - not about things you don't know.

With everything I've said, not everything is broken either.
