    Hi there! New user here from CT. A friend recommended this brand of drone to me so I'm checking into the idea of getting a p3 or a p4. To those who have already taken the plunge, are you happy with which you chose? Aside from more $$$, are there features to the p4 that I actually "need" or would be sorry I didn't spend the extra for? I'm leaning towards a p3p used, preferably with all the extras, and have been lurking in the classified section.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    What's the real difference anyway? Looked like some GPS functionality and that was about it.

    I would buy the p3p, the camera is exactly the same and except for some extra features such as active tracking and anti-collision there isn't much different.
