Maybe you were a bit disappointed in your holiday present haul – but being the “mostly” adult you hid it well – If one of the items on your list was a drone – Rejoice – big price drops have made some of the DJI offerings VERY affordable.
New DJI Phantom3 4K – Buy from B&H Photo Price Drop Now $799
DJI Phantom 3 Standard with 2.7K Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal – Buy from B&H Photo Price Drop Now $499
DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Quadcopter with 2.7K Camera and 3-Axis – Buy from B&H Photo Price Drop Now $799
The difference between the Standard and Advanced? The streaming connection for First person View (FPV) of your camera. The $799 Advanced model uses Lightrbridge, a DJI proprietary connection that offers excellent range and low lag. The $499 Uses wifi which typically has less range, is a bit slower and when the connection is lost takes longer to reestablish. Also suffers more in wooded conditions.
Don’t forget to Register your new Drone with the FAA 🙂
