I'm very close to pulling the trigger on a Phantom 3 Pro. I'm having a hard time figuring out what other accessories are good to have. Here's a small intro since this is my first post: I've always been interested in R/C, and have been a hobby photographer for a while. Naturally, I'm very excited to get into aerial photo/film with UAVs. I've been practicing with my Nano QX and a 350QX (with GoPro, no gimbal) that I was recently given by someone who wasn't using it. I want get a serious AP platform (like the P3P) to continue to learn with, and pretty quickly turn it into a business (including a 333 exemption) once I feel like I can produce professional quality work. Here's what I plan to buy. I'm assuming these are not included in the base package: Spare battery Carry case A bunch of props Prop balancer Sunshade for tablet Lens cleaning paper/solution And some questions: What other things should I be shopping for to increase performance, convenience, or to protect the investment? DJI's hardshell backpack looks bulky and uncomfortable, but I'm biased towards it because it's OEM. Is it ok, or should I be looking at different backpacks? Do third party backpacks protect it as well as DJI's? Are the carbon fiber props worth the extra price, or should I just buy the normal plastic ones? What do you guys think of the ND4 filter? Worth the money, or save up for third party filters? Do you guys recommend buying directly from DJI, or are there better places to shop? (I'm thinking that buying directly from them might come with easier customer service.) If someone would like to take a shot at some of these, I'd appreciate it!
