Hi, I am new to this forum. I am also a new drone pilot (having purchased a Potensic D85 drone a couple months ago). The D85 is a very good flying drone, but the camera at 2 mega pixels is not adequate for what I need. I would like to eventually go commercial after I have toned my flying skills (and of course passed my exam). But my immediate issue is the camera. is it possible to put a better camera on this drone, such as at least 12 mega pixels for still shots? If so, how to get the range for the wifi? I bought an Apeman A80 (a Gopro knockoff) and it has a 20 mega pixel lens and its quality is acceptable, but it loses the wifi after a distance of about 20 feet. Of course, this is unacceptable. I need a longer range. Does anyone have any suggestions how to upgrade a camera on these inexpensive drones, or do I need to bite the bullet and buy a more expensive drone like the Mavics? I see the actual Gopro brand cameras don't have much wifi range either, which seems odd since Potensic themselves advocates that their drone can be upgraded to a Gopro (but they do not give details how and what to do to accomplish that). Yes, I have contacted them about this and their only response is that a Gopro should work, but if I wait till next year, they will have a new drone out with a better camera!).
It seems like there should be a market for these $250 drones, but with better cameras. Any help is appreciated!
