Looks a great forum i fly phantom 3 Advanced in the Durham Area.
Welcome to the club
Hi there @snowy and welcome to the Grey Arrows
Have you been flying long?
What’s the P3A like in the wind? Do you find it stable?
Welcome from the NW - it’s a great forum to be in.
Welcome to GADC, @snowy. Great to have you with us. Closest I’ve got to a Phantom is looking at one in Maplins! Hope you’ll be able to show us what it’s like to fly this bird.
Thanks Guys for the welcome been flying all types of model planes/helis and quad copters (drones)
For many years but the Phantom 3 Advanced for the last 2 years great fun easy to fly very stable platform to film with i moded this one to fly long range current longest return flight stands at 10.5 miles out.and back maybe be looking to buy and mod a Mavic soon
Hi PingSpike yes fly’s great even though it carries extra weight with the mods i’ve done
What was the battery life like upon return? Or some kind of battery mod too ?
I’m running a pair of Multi star HV 5200 mah 4 cell battery’s along side the stock battery 2% left on landing planning your flight paths and wind/weather has to be taken into account also the power to weight ratio of battery’s to how much thrust the motors can lift i’ve flown 9 miles out on a single 5200 mah battery lighter weight and better weather conditions. I currently have a 8000 mah battery to try out see how that combo works out when the weather plays ball i think current world record flight for a phantom 3 is 14.5 mile out .
