    Hi Guys,

    I'm Alex from Mexico, and this is my First Post.

    I'm looking into getting a DJI Phantom

    The main use will be Hobby FPV (First time ever done this) and mabe some Event recordings (I work in Parties and Concerts)

    My Only way to purchase this is through E-Bay (That's the only store my POBox in Laredo Tx will receive, no amazon no DDM, no DJI, only E-Bay)

    So,,,, My First options were:
    Dji Phantom FC40 $499.00 with the 720p camera
    I dont own a GoPro and my posibilities wont allow me to own one soon, I do have a JVC Adixxion so I could Attach my Own camera....
    Seccond Option was the DJI Phantom 2 Vision $799

    After Reading Specs, the only difference that I could find were the Flight times..
    FC40 seems Lighter than Vision 2 so Adding a Seccond Battery would fix the flight times, Right?

    Would like the Option of a Gimbal, but that is an upgrade that I could Purchase in a future, after I learn how to fly and stop caring about money :p

    Vision 2 plus is completely out of my Range

    So .... What would you do ??

    Consider:
    Unit upgrade Wont be soon
    Pieces, parts, etc, are not as easy to access down here in Mexico

    Thank you for your Kind answers, and I hope to be playing with a Phantom soon :)
    Regards
    Alex

    mi recomendación (que es lo que yo hice)

    compra el phantom 2 (la versión sin gimball ya bajó de precio), aprende a volarlo, sientete cómodo con el y poco a poco le vas metiendo equipo extra conforme tu presupuesto te lo permita. en mi caso compré el phantom en junio (supongo que también usas estafetamembers) y apenas ayer comoré una hero3 (igual por ebay y usada que me ha salido muy buena). poco a poco estoy armando el phantom.

    la ventaja que tienes contra el fc40 es que puedes ir agregándole equipo conforme a tu oresupuesto/necesidades,
    en qué parte de mex estás?
