< Adding the FPV system was a major boost to maneuverability, and overall quality of shots. I didn't rely on it entirely, but it added another level of control. It has a range of almost 4000 feet, so staying in contact is not a problem. However, when flying quadcopters, like many things in life, it's always better to have a spotter.
< Overall: Very pleased with the improvements to the new Phantom 2. While I liked the P1, the P2 is a much smoother experience from start to finish. It handles better, has a longer battery life with improved workflow. The Zenmuse gimbal is a pleasure, and the footage is so much more stabilized than before! Loving this system, and looking forward to their new H3-3D 3-axis gimbal.
