Good deal as batteries typically go for $130+ on Phantom series.
If you don't need something small and compact like the Mavic, the Phantom 4 has a WAY better camera.

Not sure if the P4 has a way better camera.

The Mavic Pro has a camera very similar in specs to the P4 and P3P and many people are reporting similar results with these cameras. Although I don't doubt that some may prefer the image quality and FOV of one over the other, and the P4 may have a noticeably better image quality in some people's experience.

The P4Pro camera has a much better camera than the Mavic Pro (or P3P and P4) because it is a significant step up. Not sure if you were thinking of the P4P when you said it was WAY better.

I have the Mavic, P3P, and P4 and can say the P4 camera is slightly better than the P3P, and the P3P is WAY better than the Mavic.
And obviously the P4 Pro is in a different class of it's own compared to all of these.

Good to know, thanks for the information, I stand corrected. Just read a little more on it and did not know the P4 was much different than the P3P until now. It seems that it was tweaked with quite a few things to give it better saturation and more dynamic range along with a faster speed on the 1080 setting.

I had P3P's (which were pretty good for such a low end camera spec) and now have P4P's but have only seen other's P4's and Mavic pictures so always assumed they were close.

Thanks again.

This.
Mavic is a great drone, but p4 has a good sized edge in video quality and slight edge in speed/flight characteristics. Both are top quality

I really appreciate you chiming-in with this. I'm an anti-fanboy, and give credit where it's due and criticism where it's due. I expected to have a Mavic the first week they came out, but I watched some vids online and asked why the quality was lower... several people argued (because you can't question anything beloved)... so I waited... and I'm still waiting, to see what happens with the Mavic next. The recent Mavic refurb deal at $700 had me tempted... but I think I'm going to get a second P4 instead. I've been totally blown away with the P4... after having P3A and P3P.

I do wonder if BF will bring anything up from this though... I think I'm going to check my CC and see which one gives me price-rewind.

Also... something I don't understand is why isn't DJI the best price on their own stuff? I have credit with them accumulated over a couple years, but I never use it there because I've learned that nearly everything from the DJI Store is simply full MSRP(?) I wish they had this deal on their own site so I could use a "customer loyalty" coupon (that they have conveniently made worthless, because it's only good on things that cost 10% more to buy directly anyway)... and if I could match this deal directly, I'd do it in a heartbeat and burn off that credit.

The more I thought about it, the better I think this deal is... I bit on it. On Newegg's page they say they'll guarantee nobody beats this deal through Cyber Monday (inc. BF) or they'll refund the difference... so... $849... minus $50 GC... minus $84.90 in Newegg credit (eggpoints) = $714. So... what is a battery worth? I'd say EASILY $100... (for genuine)... so... $614 "net" for a new P4? I don't think you can beat that. I've occasionally had a weird glitch with my current P4... and at times it would have been a problem as I went a long way to get a shot. I'd hate to toss it back in the car and call the day a wash... so I was already thinking about a 2nd drone for those unpredictable days... for $614 "net"? Um... yep... I'm in. For the most part the P4 has been stunningly capable... maybe one of my favorite tech products of all-time. TU and repped.

Please help me understand.
Is this a P4P or P4A?
I can't find any specs on just the P4. How is it different from the other two?

https://www.dji.com/phantom-4/info I'm slightly skeptical that you actually looked. <shrug>

The P4S has a P4 camera and a P3A vision system... The P4 is a P4S with the P4A vision system. Simple, no? So the hierarchy goes. From best to worst; P4P, P4A, P4, P4S, P3P, etc... The previous P4 is the midpoint of P4S and P4A.

I'm interested and am looking for a good deal on a Phantom 4 Pro, so am interested in any discussion on the DJI drones. But I don't know what P4S is. Care to explain, please?

P4P = Phantom 4 Pro
P4A = Phantom 4 Advanced
P4 = Phantom 4
P3P = Phantom 3 Pro
P4S =???

Thanks.
