(Not a re-post, previous poster on this deal was $679 although They now updated to $639)
To be honest I am not a big DJI fan anymore because I believe they use Faulty cheap plastic on their products (just search "Cracked plastic dji" on youtube or Google you will see) In fact my P3P remote & shell both started cracking it was PITA to repair because DJI would not help me out 1 month outside the warranty. Most remotes crack and you will not notice it until after one year.. ( I eventually had to buy a new remote & they cost $300!) and under the motors the arms will also start to crack. You. + it is should be against our consumer protection laws, for DJI to force you into a Mandatory update and remove capabilities AFTER you purchase their product. And additionally some people have never got their drone back up in the air after doing these forced updates, and now DJI has abandoned any support or fixes for the Phantom 3s.. Having said all that..
This Phantom 4 LINK>> https://www.ebay.com/itm/262903065630
is only $639 right now with NO TAX!! with a 1 year warranty.. (Yes it includes everything, Drone, camera, Gimbal, Battery, remote, box, EVERYTHING) So I will buy this Phantom 4 with the expectation of 1 good year of filming. Because that is the bttom line disregard all the comparisons, if you want stunning smooth 4K video that could be used in a motion picture movie & want it for under warranty for $639? This is it. Lowest camera of this caliber and smooth platform.. lowest price ever. & this is a temporary sale, ( although I do not always believe that, because DJI advertised their big anniversary sale 2 years ago,, but in reality, it was just new lower prices) But this is definitely the lowest the P4 has been with warranty.
And maybe look into a square trade extended warranty? (I need to research this but if available it would highly be recommended in case this DJI starts to crack just after the 12 months)
Most agree The Camera on the P4 is mors stable & better than the Mavick and 3 or 4 times better than the Spark. I really hope the Karma has a 2nd version, smaller with more features.. but even though you can buy a Karma refurb right now for $429 here https://www.ebay.com/itm/GoPro-Ka...rmvSB=true
I would still have to spend $450 for a Hero 6 Black so that is about $900, but the Karma has NO reports of any cracking and they are a US owned company.. but I really need the Obstacle Avoidance as I use a EVOLVE board and use "Follow me" feature practically every time I fly (Which the Karma has "follow" now, but they do not have the Obstacle Avoidance) so considering these facts & I finally crashed my P3p On Maui (Darn strong Afternoon winds!)
So, I will go with the P4, At this heavily reduced price. (This is the lowest I could find EVER for a Phantom 4 with warranty)
