The 3 Pro is where its at currently the 4 isn't living up to its new flight time with the new batteries. In some cases it's getting worse flight time than the 3. I was waiting on the 4 myself to hit but have held off as it's having issues that I bet DJI does the drop a 4 adv/4 pro out to possible correct. I think the smarter play is 3 pro save the loot and get a nice set of FPV goggles or tablet if you dont have one. Looks like the 4 was rushed out to get the track me junk and the object avoidance out.

the 400 seems to be standard going price for the 3.

is the 3 pro worth the extra $400

the only major difference seems to be
DJI Lightbridge Video Downlink, 3.1mi (5Km) range vs 2.4 (not sure what that means)

are these upgradable?

thanks

I would add that if you don't need 4k and the faster charger, you can get a P3A and further pocket some money.

Lightbridge > WiFi, which knocked the standard off my list. I ended up with the Adv and I'm happy with the choice.

thank you all,

can we say that phantom 3 advance is the best one to get if you don't need 4k and only care about flight-time/range/height FPV video latency/quality?

I would agree with that statement. I like some of the new things about the 4 but I'm so glad I sat on making a decision reading reviews and watching some of the test flights some of the long range guys were doing.

IMO, yes. The $100 difference between the Pro and Adv can almost get you an extra battery. The 4, at almost twice the cost of the Adv, wasn't even in the equation as this is my first Phantom and I saw no need to get the latest/greatest until I've gotten some experience to know what I need or don't need.
