    Found some posts over a year ago on Hubsan, but nothing new in a long time.

    So it that because it total junk? I'm debating between these two because I can buy either at the exact same price, $999.

    Thanks from a real newbie.

    Boowho??

    I have a Hubsan as a toy that I like to play with my cat. But you're talking about a toy vs a tool. The hubsan is nowhere close to the phantom in any way. A hubsan should be no more than $35...

    Yeah, what he said. Now, if you're comparing a Porsche to a Yugo...well, that's the same principle.

    Welcome to the forum, Boowho.

    The Hubsan 4 pro is physically larger than the Phantoms. Technology wise, it's comparable to a Phantom 2 Vision +. The P3 Advanced or Professional have much better range and cameras. The Hubsan uses a super wide angle lens which distorts the images it captures worse than a P2.

    My advice, buy a gently used P3 standard or pro, if you want to save some cash. There are a lot for sale in the Classified section since DJI announced the P4.

    Save up a bit longer and the Phantom 4 prices will ease up a bit. ;-)
    It's the nature of the beast....

    Sorry, bradbrok.... I was talking about the Husban that is close to a P3. Can't think of the model at the moment.

    And thanks to all who responded; I too think the P3 is the way for me to go.

    Boowho??

    Just grab a P3P or wait until P5

    DJI list the price as a "limited offer", not sure if it'll go down anytime soon.
