    Seeing the price drop of the Phantom 3 Standard, I've decided to upgrade and make the jump. Is there anything I need to know before I jump the purchase?

    Expect longer flight times the ability to use fpv and control the cam . And a little better control :)

    Have you considered the Advanced, Professional, or the new '4K' model? Advanced, and '4K' are both also on sale.

    I'm about to go to college so I'm going on a budget and want to have extra money left over for a second battery.

    You can get the advanced for $719 if you use the college discount. You just have to have a school email address

    I have owned the standard, advanced, and now the professional. I only flew the standard for 10 minutes and hated it. You won't regret having lightbridge.
