    Does anyone know if a 4K camera will work on a professional? Different price for them from dji, so assume something changes, but plugs in the same. Just bought a nice Pro without a camera, had one we had bought off eBay, so installed it. Grinding noise from gimbal, and no transmission. Was curious if I could plug my 4K camera in as a test.

    Yes, they are similar, but very different indeed.
    The 4K is just a Phantom Standard with better camera, no? ;-)

    No. They are not compatible.

    Yeah, hadn't thought about lightbridge. Getting tired of trash off eBay that people sell as excellent condition that is messed up. Better try to get my money back, repair will probably be costly.

    Lightbridge obviously brings us into the 21st century... ;-)
    It helped to make our drone, number one.

    this is true, many other great platforms out there, chroma for one is a beautiful machine, but sadly range blows

    We have some happy Autel owners here as well, who seem to appreciate the quality of their build and awesome CS.

    yep those are awesome too. but why can't other companies get the same distance? patents holding them back or something?

    There are plenty of drones that can outfly the DJI Phantom by far.

    But these cost $10,000 and up. ;-)


    In this price range, these Phantoms are boss.

    Shared these several times before.
    Imagine a 30km flight? Haha

    Eh, how about that busy radio setup? ;-)
    And you can launch your phantom from this one... Ha
