    I had some fire damage to my Gimbal and Camera about 6 weeks ago, so I am now ready to purchase a new Vision +...

    Should I wait it out a few more months and hope a model with a better camera comes out? What does the rumor mill say??

    Also, I downgraded my initial P2V+ to software Version 1.08....still possible on the latest Vison+'s being shipped out??

    Thanks

    As much as I love my Plus I will be looking at other units for next one due to very bad service and replacement of defective parts. :evil:

    Parrot Bebop? I like how it has a dirty/clean configuration.

    With the new GoPro 4 coming out imminently, the P2 with 3 axis gimbal and that as the payload. 1080p @ 120 FPS will have stunning video, and beautiful slo-mo shots. 720p @ 240 FPS, the same, and even more so with the slo-mo shots. You could pick up a used GP3 between then and now. I like the modularity, and if I was to purchase again, this is the route I would go with.

    I suspect the future for many of us will be to buy a quadcopter (perhaps DJI) that supports 3rd party gimbals and cameras.

    Being tied to DJI for overpriced/fragile/unavailable parts is leading to the high degree of dissatisfaction you read about around here.
