Default DJI Phantom 4 Pro + Drone

Anyone shooting drone video these days.
I am in the hunt for one of the new DJI 4 Pro+ drones.

Hoping against the odds to find one of the new units on sale for Black Friday or Cyber Monday as an advance order.

Seriously doubt I will find one, BUT I am hoping!

You know I have had the urge to buy the same one but fear it may be a bit of a impulse then just get bored with it?? Not sure but I keep looking. FYI, I see a lot of them on CL for sale in our area as well to. You may want to check your local CL. One thing I was watching for was if you get a used one they tend to throw in extra's like the case and batteries which are expensive.

Time has passed and technology has advanced.
The Mavic Pro Platinum has surpassed the Phantom for Snowmobile use

mavic still doesn't have the camera the phantom 4+ has, but it fits better on a sled. Maybe the DJI announcement Tuesday will have an upgrade surprise.

Ya, it's a real trade off between size/portability and best possible features.

The phantom is still the best drone, but dang, the maverick is SO portable..

Does size of the drone play a role in wind stability?

Honestly don't know
But the spread between the props on the two drones is pretty close to being the same I think.

From what I found a year ago when I bought my first drone. Size does matter as your looking at surface area that the wind can catch. However prop speed and weight can overcome a size difference for stability.

Also on the difference between the Mavic Pro and the Phantom 4 That average person would not notice the difference in video performance between the two.

I picked up the Mavic Pro when it was all said and done and have not regretted that purchase at all. The portability of it is more then worth it.

Where are the best deals on these?

Do they have a follow mode where the drone will follow you once launched?
