Is it Lightbridge that keeps us so loyal to DJI?

    One doesn't have to look very far to notice the serious competition that has recently hit the marketplace. Yuneecs Typhoon H and Autels X Star Premium are two feature packed competitors worth reading about. Personally, I don't care about the obstacle avoidance capabilities offered in the P4 and Typhoon H. My flying takes me high above all obstacles therefore, the aforementioned isn't even a consideration. My concern as well as most others is the limited range with wifi. If all manufacturers were on a level playing field with wifi only, would you stick with DJI? I also own an Inspire 1 Pro, considering making it my long haul quadcopter and buying one of the new birds offered by one of the competitors to mix it up a bit.

    Had to Google what the Autel was. So 2k at 60fps and 1080p at 120fps. Dji need to pull their **** together! Purposely not bringing us these features so we upgrade.

    lightbridge is awesome, but once you start loosing signal it sucks... and there is some lag/delay.
    video over wifi is a no go for me
    2.4 is awesome also.
