    I would like to use a go pro 4 instead of the normal camera.
    looking to buy and that woulf make the price worth it.
    Is there a way to receive live video on the app from the go pro?

    There are3 lots of other drones that can carry a gopro (including the P2)
    None of them have the range or photo control options of the P3

    Why would you want to use a go pro? I heard the GoPro4 high resolution mode gives terrible fisheye distortion. I don't think you'll ever get all of the nice control capabilities available with the DJI camera when using a GoPro. Even 3DR hasn't provided that yet, and they're the one touting their close relationship with GoPro and their ability to interface with a GoPro on the Solo. It's still not working. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for someone to build a gimbal and software interface to hold a GoPro on a P3, the low demand just wouldn't justify the development cost.
