    I'm thinking of upgrading from my P2+ to a new P3 professional...

    Is now the best time to buy or or do you folks think that a new model might come out soon or a price reduction?

    I know that there will always be a new model and technological advances at some point - I just don't want to be the chap that buys Betamax when VHS takes over!

    What are your thoughts and advice, please...

    A new model was just recently released (the P3 Standard). DJI rarely reveals release dates ahead of time, but they haven't released new models back-to-back in the past. If you're looking for the P3P+ or P4P, then you probably have some time yet.

    I think it depends on what you use it for - I'm finding I'd really like the increased range of the P3P, and the non-fisheye lens for higher quality real estate listing photos. I've got my cart full with everything I think I need, trying to find a reason NOT to buy it at this point. Besides spending the $1903... ;-)

    With the holidays, I would think they will keep P3 as is and some kind of announcement at CES in Jan (I will be there ).
