    Hello people, nice to meet you here! i am new to the drone familly and i really love the drone world. So after i practiced with my Chinese drone Tarantula X6 (ho ho ho) i order a Phantom 3 Adv. I want to hear your opinion about my choice. The price that i bought it is €1224 with the backpack and an extra battery. The same packet of the pro was priced at €1524. i dont have 4k tv or monitor i am planning to buy a MacBook Pro 13 soon but thats all. So i thought adv was a good choice. What do you think?

    P.S.: 3 days until to receive it. I will go crazy until then :p

    I spent about 2 hours playing with my friends phantom standard yesterday and came home and ordered the pro, carbon blades, guards, extra battery, gimble guard, legs and 6 filters from polar pro.. Ouch!

    I pieced it together, the drone, blades, blade guards and extra battery came from DJI(1450) and I got the legs, gimble guard, and uv filters from polarpro for 160ish... 1600 total

    Really good deal but for me and the gear I use (not 4k monitor or tv) is too much. I didn't ordered guards for props do you think I have to?

    Personally, I'm going to be extra cautious since I have very little experience flying, which is why I bought the gimble guard and the longer legs with it.

    Be careful, there are a lot of counterfeit products out there that really suck. Props and Prop Guards seem to be faked a lot.

    Good choice with the Advanced - I've got the pro but can't play 4k or 1080p on my not so old PC - 2.7k plays flawlessly on it for some strange reason. 2.7k is VERY good

    I almost followed that logic,but, you're monitor might not display at 4k but other peoples might.

    That's true but most of the world have a max 1080p monitors. Anyway both opinions are correct it depends at your budget and what you want to get. I think I will be have with my adv.
