    Hello all, I am writing to get opinion from you vision owners. I am coming from a p1 with a gopro and would like fpv but i don't have the time to install an fpv setup. Would you guys recommend the vision as a good first fpv uav?


    Thanks

    JMO ..Yes
    But now with all the Plus's being lowered in price I might look at those also . It's just how much you want to pay .
    You will after awhile want to add a decent gimbal to the vision and the Plus already has one .

    If your set on a Vision, go Plus. Buy the best you can get without going P3.
    Installing FPV is not to big a deal and you already own a superior camera (assuming Hero3 or better) compared to a Vision or Vision+.

    I really like my Phantom 2 NV with the Hero4 camera on a Zenmuse gimbal.
    I just don't trust WiFi as on the Vision and everything DJI released after the P2.

    After doing some research I will most likely get a p2+ used from BH photo, they have never disappoint and then I can pick it up at the store rather than waiting for it to ship from somewhere like eBay !

    Sounds like a good decision. That way if you encounter an issue you can return it in person and B&H has a good reputation. Enjoy your new bird and see ya around the forum!
