    I own a Gopro hero 3 already, would like a drone that has fpv, capability to take good still shots and videos. What do i need to get started? Am i better off going with vision + vs gopro?

    It's fast moving technology. The only question is how quickly it will depreciate... That's assuming you don't fly it into a tree first.

    Whatever regulation comes, you will still be able to fly it in "reasonable" hobby fashion. But the days of people flying 3000 feet into airplane airspace and over heavily crowded areas/sensitive objects are very possibly numbered.

    Same situation here. I went with the vision+ just to get out of the box fpv. But now I saw droneexpert.nl seems to have something coming that makes it possible to use the fpv and app with the gopro and zenmuse combo.
