I've got a Phantom 3 Standard at the moment and thinking of upgrading to a Mavic Pro. I was wondering if I should maybe wait and see if DJI release a new drone? I've read a few things that perhaps a Mavic Standard or something could come out. Do you think its worth waiting?
I have 2 Phantom 3 Pro's and have flown a friends Mavic a couple times .
Things I like about the Mavic
2. Sport Mode.
3. Obstacle Avoidance.
4. Price Point
Things I don't like about the Mavic
1 Only 2 Axis Camera Gimble
2. No Expandable HDMI Port for FPV to my Fat Shark Goggles.
3. The Go App Mavis is very complicated and has many gliches ( Like flying a Main Frame Computer )
4. Like any other product I would give them a couple of years to work the bugs out with the constant updates required.
All in all The P3P is a very stable camera platform.
I would be more into performance drones, those I can compete with. An P4 would be nice, but I don't see racing with it much. That would be like putting a Mack Diesel Truck against a Shelby Cobra Mustang.
Many ask the same question or considering between Mavic Pro and P4, but trust me, Mavic Pro surely worth it... It's more portable and I love the quality of the video. But I'm not sure there's gonna be a Mavic Standard... Just go for the pro!
I agree, just bought my first Mavic, awesome quad, video quality is superb, I have been flying the P3P's for quite awhile now and don't notice any difference in photo/video quality once you find the right camera settings. Even has 2x zoom in 720/1080p resolution, Nice feature!
Here's a problem with all these drones that take pictures and shoot videos: soon they will be as common place as the Smart Phone with little else to be done with them. They will become all consuming and contribute little to society similar to what Kodak did. Kodak doesn't make camera film any more, by the way. Where can we go with the drones beyond that? If everyone has a camera drone, everything will become "boring" again.
