With the countless threads about firmware issues, pilot app issues, connection issues, video issues yadda yadda....  it makes one wonder...  "dang, is there anyone out there having NO issues?" lol
So, please, if you have a P3P or similar and have flown through many hours, days and batteries without incident (or very few/minor incidents), step forward and report that here.  Sharing your current setup would also help.. (ie device, FW version, pilot app version etc).

If anything, for those who are thinking about a new P3P drone or just got one, but have yet to set it up... this will show that... "yes, its possible to purchase a P3P and enjoy all its fruits without incident" lol  Or, on the flipside, maybe everyone is having issues (hate to think that).

Either way, we'll find out soon won't we? ;-)  Lets see what this thread brings.

Yes there are people out there with no issues.

Good point!  Forums generally attract all those with issues, so not representative of the general drone populous.  Still felt compelled to throw out this thread and see what it attracts lol.  Thanks

i seriously put a lot of the blame for  the :p3 went bat shit crazy" or the "fly-aways" on this constant compass recalibration, most of which i bet are not done correctly. there are easier and more secure way to see if p3 compass readings are good, apart from just checking the mod values!!

No issues here aswell with P3A, flying on 1.1.9 FW from beginning. I won't upgrade my FW because "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"
Ok, maybe lag on video feed, but that's fixable by disabling google play.
Loving my P3A although I don't have many occasions to fly...

Phantom 3 Professional with latest firmware and Apps. on Nvidia Shield (5.1.1).  Sandisk 64 card UH-3. I have only done the compass calibration once  when I first received it. Have never done IMU calibration.  I do put a fan on the Phantom when doing an update to make sure it stays cool. (heat destroys electronics)
Have absolutely no issues at all, nada, nothing.

20+ hours of flying with no issues whatsoever.  Updated without issues and calibrated to a tee.  IMHO people have problems when they jump into it without research and knowledge.

P3P, iPad mini 2.  86 flights, 13 hours flight time.  I've been using it since the day the first compatible iOS app was released in May. I have upgraded to all the firmware versions but generally leave VPS off.   I had one "almost" fly away issue that was resolved by switching to ATTI mode a few weeks ago. Other than that it has performed like a dream.

Mine is working pretty good, no problems with connecting or Gimball overload or ultrasonic error, only thing I have now is that the image a little tilt to left, and when I make video recordings  there is a small vibration in the picture like the jello but it has a sequence of about 2 seconds, it really does not bother me, I do not bring him out to the store for that, so for now i am happy, my lesson learn is not to do a firmware update ad once but look on the forum first for troubles, if there are not, then doing the FW update

Just updated to the newest iteration of our Go App.
I hope it remains trouble resistant, and no ghosts in the flying machine.
I will go fly her, in a bit, just to reassure the gallery... And myself of course...

Definitely have High Expectations... ;-)

How does everyone know how many flights they have made?
Is their a counter on the Rc or drone?

No problems here other than pilot error.

Please be aware... if you app crashes with the bird far away, press the home button.

Twice for me, the new Go app won't connect after restart.

Really disappointed, be careful.

Now 25flights with P3P. One compass error but its now in history, no problems(few "disconnects" with image but not so big deal).
I dont have ANY EXPERIENCE with drones or any rc flying stuff before. If you start careful(my max altitude is 78m now and about 600m distance) im quite sure anybody can buy it in first drone.
Start in basics, dont take your first flight over 2km away and then thinkingin how i get it home.

Im happy with this purchase. But, always when i fly, i feel like pain in the ass because the plane costs over 1400€ and thinking IF and WHEN something happens....

P3A Only had it a week.  Got it direct from DJI came a day early.  Aircraft and batteries(2) updated great RC very difficult but the Go app for android saved me.  On line support not great figured out myself.  Like said you have to read and look up things.  After update aircraft works outstanding no problem after several flights.  I have cheap tablet Dragon Touch M7 so go app lags and video stops( no way that I can see to change the debug buffer size on that tablet) but info regarding height, speed, distance and map still works.  I think with an apple tablet it would all work great.  So far so good glad I got it !

Only had 2 flights, 1st one had pilot issues, 2nd flight had NO issues.  FW updated perfectly.  Haven't really looked at my video feed through my phone yet, as I'm keeping both eyes on the bird and not so much on my phone right now.  But no issues to report!  (knocking on wood)........oh wait my bird already did that it's first flight HA!
