    Other then the 4K camera of the P3P, the other difference between the pro and advanced phantoms is the bitrate of the video storage, 60 pro and 40 advanced. What does this mean? If I only record at 1080 and do no cache the video, does the difference mean anything? Thanks for any help.

    The bit ratre is how much data (how many million bits) are stored per second of video. The higher the rate, the higher the quality but the larger the file. For my use 60Mbps for 4kx30 on the Pro is about the minimum I can use but YMMV. My other 4k camera is a Lumix that does 80Mbps and the video is noticeably better. I expect this will increase on the next Phantom.

    The video cache (on your mobile device) is only lower resolution anyway - not the same as recorded on board to the card.
