I had my Phantom 3 Pro for a few years, but recently sold it for a Mavic Air. I needed something more portable and the Air specs aren't far off from the P3P. I've only had a few flights with the Air, but I am quite impressed. The range has been more than enough. Battery life isn't much different than I'm used to. I'm still learning the camera portion as it is a little different than my Phantom.

The only issue I've had is needing to calibrate the compass at every new location. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if it is a bug or it legitimately needs to be calibrated.

Now I just need to find interesting places to fly that I haven't done yet.
