    I recently bought a Phantom 3 Advanced drone with a backpack, 2 extra batts, and an Nvidia tablet.

    What additional accessories do you guys recommend?

    Thanks!

    Crash/theft insurance. Fairly cheap, there are other posts that cover this fairly well.
    I picked up a lens hood to try and reduce lens flare, and a better gimbal lock for movement/storage.

    If you're shooting video, it would be a good idea to pick up a set of ND filters. You can find a list of other commonly used Phantom 3 Advanced accessories here.

    Perhaps good car inverter for charging those extra batteries from your vehicle.

    Going by some of the posters on this forum, you'd better get a tinfoil hat for yourself too.
