Hello All,

I'm currently exploring entering the drone world! I have been researching for the past month and I currently have two options;

1. A more simple approach just to satisfy the needs of work. I looked at a Phantom 3 or 4 with a 4k camera this will hopefully be enough for roof surveys at work.

2. I take a step myself and go into aerial photography as well as surveying work. This means I need something that would stand up to other competitors. I was looking at the DJI Inspire Pro with the X5.

Now there is a significant difference in the setup costs between these so if anyone has any comments, experiences or other recommendations I would appreciate it.

Welcome. You are mentioning the wrong options.

1) LEARN TO FLY A DRONE: really FLYING IT AND NOT RELYING ON AUTOMATISMS. They fail, at times.

2) When you will be able to fully control it and avoid crashing it, you will be understanding. Choose then a NON REDUNDANT DRONE (hexacopter or octocopter, NOT QUADCOPTER).

 You can purchase an inexpensive m hexacopter which it will be your bootcamp drone and LEARN TO FLY IT:  http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MJX-X601H-Altitude-Hold-Hexacopter-Drone-Helicopter-w-C4015-Wifi-FPV-Camera-/252370597830  BTW, I am NOT ADVERTISING< just trying to help. LEARN TO WALK BEFORE YOU RUN!!!!
