Do a calibration very carefully by fully charging( would just hover a few feet above ground , flying it till it reached critical landing at 10% then leave it on until either the cells reach 3.35v or the battery turns its self off, then let it rest and fully charge again.

In colder weather you will see some performance drop, i have also seen a few packs show cell 1 with some deviation over the rest.

Do the calibration then see how it is then

What do you guys think about it?

Quick update: Still have not received the tracking number, even though seller said they would send it to me today.

Scroll down to REMOTE CONTROLLER AND VIDEO DOWNLINK. You will find the max video bitrate.

A little bit of "slight of hand" by DJI on this one. It is a very important difference that was not disclosed, and they don't want to talk about it not being disclosed, They quietly added the spec when folks started getting hdmi boards and finding out for themselves.
Thx.
Interestingly, on my P3A, my 1080p 60fps recordings were initially done at 40Mbps. But the most recent were done at 60Mbps.

With my live vids ranging from 2Mbps to 5Mbps.

You might as well get the claim started with PayPal. I'm sure that the seller has withdrawn all the money he's received and disappeared. Pretty popular eBay scam.

So you think there is a legitimate supply of P3 Pros for $200 or $400 or whatever price it was? I would think that receiving a stolen P3 pro would be your best case scenario.

The differences in processing between the two means the Advance does not have the processing to provide both feeds at a high rate.

So, I will be posting about this from time to time, until such time as DJI publishes the specs to which they engineered the live views of the P3 advanced and pro models.

My goal is to upgrade the quality of my live viewing, so I need to know what I might be buying. (I have the advanced today.). Thus my quest for the missing specs.
Check here, almost to the bottom of the page you will find the bit rate

I went out today to fly a couple of packs after registering. https://registermyuas.faa.gov/

I had a pack do something very weird. My on screen display showed the battery @ 100% charge. I took off and the display showed 20%. Whats up with that?

I delved into this sellers history. States he has sold 42 Phantom 3,s within the last 3 days, yet not one bit of feedback on any of those sales. Its a scam.

a few questions, how long had it been since it was charged ?
has it been calibrated recently ?
how many cycles are on it ?
how did the cell voltages look ( you man not have looked though)

there is an issue with reporting on packs, its generally either when there is a period of time between charge and use and the self discharge has kicked in or its due to cold temperatures affecting the pack.

but some have just miss reported for no reason including mine on the bench

DJI have issues an update for the I1 around battery issues and the P3 wont be far behind, in the meantime I would calibrate that battery of you have not done so recently

1. Been about a 2 hours since charge.

2. Has been recently calibrated as have all my other packs.

3, Has 14 cycles on it.

4. If hooked up to my computer,the cells look pretty close in voltage.

I will try a recal tomorrow.
