    Please give us some more details -- like:
    • Are you interested in purchasing a Phantom or just a drone in general?
    • Where are you planning to fly?
    • How far do you need to fly?
    • Do you need to shoot 4K video?
    • What kind of budget do you have in mind?

    Flying a drone from the worlds most popular manufacturer DJI, the Phantom 3, is easy to manipulate with practice. Ah, but there is a learning curve with your understanding the wonderful user friendly parameters and its various limitations too...
    Please download the PDF manuals and get acquainted thoroughly.
    Make a conscientious and educated drone purchase.
    By asking questions here, you probably already know we will recommend a Phantom 3 Advanced or the Professional model. Is 2.7K video adequate, or would you like rich 4K video? Do you already have a fast computer that can work with those large files?
    What do you want to accomplish, photographically besides elevated selfies...?

    When you ponder the choices and answer a few pertinent questions, with serious consideration to some of those questions for yourself, it will be much easier for you, to make an educated selection.
    The ultimate decision is yours, so you must decide what you desire, and to accomplish with it.

    The Phantom 3 Pro' is a very adequate machine, and it won't let you down. Get it. ;-)
    Be sure the smart device you choose, be it Android or iOS, has plenty of processing power for the power hungry Go app.

    Yup, like surgery on tough deep rooted Wisdom teeth, with trusty Frank Zappa's zircon encrusted tweezers. ;-)
