BLADE Chroma Vs DJI Phantom

    I am flying a Tarantula now and I am enjoying it a lot. I live on acreage and have almost 24 acres to fly over, but it is 90% in trees. A bit of a challenge for an almost rookie LOL. I am thinking that having GPS and a altitude control would help when I lose track over the trees.

    I am not quite ready to upgrade but have boiled it down to these two choices. BLADE Chroma Vs DJI Phantom.

    I am sure there may be others that would do what I want. Cruise around and take good videos and pictures.

    Any recommendations and comparisons would be appreciated.

    Blade has no programmable navigation and videos not the best. Phantom FTW

    You will also find many well populated DJI Phantom specific forums and 3rd party add-ons. With many hints, tips and detailed guides.

    I hear you, just have to consider cost/benefits too. Especially if I lose it in the woods lol.

    You can track altitude to keep above the tree line with the phantom while flying. It really is an awesome air craft for the money.

    I have never used that functionality on mine, but you create a flight path, and the phantom will follow it at the height, and speed that you specify.

    That is very cool for sure. I will download a manual and check it out.
