    I'm thinking of getting the new phantom 3 standard because of the price but I've been contemplating should I just add the extra and get an advance instead. I will be using it for mainly stills photography at various locations. What would you guys recommend thanks.

    Advance. For the lightbridge alone it's worth the extra few bob. Also it uses the Go app which is much more detailed.

    The P3S also uses the DJI GO app.

    Unless you simply don't have the extra $$$ or have to have a 2.7K camera...Advanced.

    Good luck with it!!! I have only 28 flights with my P3P, but I can tell you I absolutely love it. Big fan of this site, too, with a wealth of good info and tips.

    Advanced x10. Personally I would go ahead and get the P3P because you will want it the whole time you have the other models. (I have a P3P and its amazing.)

    That's true because I had p2+ before and the wifi range wasn't really all that, I never use the light bridge before but from the post I can tell its way better than the wifi

    Curious - what do you use each for and how do they compare?

    Better GPS + Lightbridge already worth it IMO.
