    Better lighting on the craft for better visual tracking. It's one thing to be watching everything on the screen but if you want to confirm things with visual contact it gets kind of tough as the distance increases. Good strobes would be nice.

    1. Longer-lasting batteries. That 23min DJI says is nonsense in real life coz when your battery gets down to 20%, you already get the annoying alarm to land!
    2.Waterproofing as standard or at least an option. Haft of my flying (or even more!) occur over a body of water and DJI knows that, so why not make it waterproof (or add some flotation device).
    3.Camera parts (not a set to buy) so that give you the ability to replace just the camera or parts.
    4. Replace the useless VPS with obstacle avoidance sensors.

    As many have posted, an audible alarm to assist with finding lost units.
    Tracker.
    The ability to maintain a constant height over terrain.
    Follow me that works.
    POI that can be saved.
    The ability to plot waypoints in advance.
    Better gimbal lock / lens cap.

    True altimeter or calibratable barometric altimeter.
    I disagree with the plotting waypoints in advance. I'm becoming jaded, lol. I don't think an accurate enough baseman exists for this to be used responsibly. Even with maps made easy I fly the perimeter first to verify waypoints prior to flying a course.
