    In a bit of a pickle. Looking to invest into another drone. I've narrowed it down to the advanced or the 3 4K. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

    The Phantom 3 Advanced uses Lightbridge and can fly 3 times further than the Phantom 3 4K. But, if you must shoot 4K video and do not want to buy the Phantom 3 Professional, then the Phantom 3 4K would be the best choice for you.

    Agreed. It seems to be if I want more distance or a better camera. Distance is nice with the advanced but camera is nice with the 4K.

    The Advanced will shoot 2.7K video which is still more than most users ever need.

    I agree. I have a P3S and loved it but it's had some RC issues.

    3 4K is one big fat fash wash! What market are they aiming it at? Same as p4 another fat wash! Nothing wrong with p3s/a/p the 34k and p4 just no need for them, p4 vs inspire? Emmmm
