The DJI Mavic Pro looks very sweet.

Also I have the standard, which is fine for me being the first one. I don't have the Facebook or you Tube steaming, had it when I frist loaded the DJI GO APP, but now it won't highlight it anymore on my screen.

I have a 2 Blade Chromas. 1-1080p and 1-4k. I will not dispute that DJI is the industry leader but there is one major issue that I have with them. The integrated gimbal means that you cannot remove the camera. If I am just flying for fun I always take my camera off. Also if a new camera comes out I can upgrade without have to buy a whole new bird. Range means nothing to me as anything beyond line of sight is illegal anyway . Just my 2 cents.

I Do agree it would be nice if the DJI could have removable gimbals & camera and allow for up grading cameras , also staying in VLS is a no brainer but you are allowed a crew member to act as a visual observer to relay positions . the costs between the DJI and Chromas is very close . their flight abilities are similar . guess it boils down to personal preference and what you plan to do with it . both have their places and both have there advantages and disadvantages .

I contacted State Farm today here in GA for insurance on my 2 Phantoms and was quoted $82 for coverage on BOTH units, not each. No deductible, just full original price replacement if lost , broken or distroyed. DJI offers DJI Care for $219 on one and $149 on the other for replacements. That's a no brainer to me. Went with State Farm. FYI
