Wow a Phantom 3 Drone Black Friday Special $459?

Been wanting a drone for a while but holding off on price. I know is not 4k but do you really need 4k on tv's that can't do 4k?

The only holdback is that you have to use a phone or a tablet for it's screen. But for that price I could buy one or use my s7. I have always wondered if you get a call does the remote stop working.

Anyway, is there any reason ya'll don't think I should pull the trigger heck it's even free shipping.

Also, 4k sucks the living battery life out of most devices... You'll have to spend a REALLY pretty penny to get something with 4k that will last longer than an hour.

The GoPro will only record up to 16 minutes on 4k, before the battery gives out.

1080p is plenty clarity.

I use the 720 just to save on card space. It's really not that big of a difference to me.

i heard the positioning system is better on the advanced and it doesn't have 4k either. The advanced also will go 1.5 miles the standard .5. Do ya'll think it's worth the extra money to go with phantom 3 advanced?

wow that is even cheaper. Thanks dude. The main thing it doesn't have is the lightbridge technology. Think it's worth it to got 699 for advance. Heck I just got off the phone with opticscopters in houston and the phantom 4 is going sale at 999 on black friday. Decisions decisions.

I paid 399 for mine 6 months or so ago. Easy to fly. However, I'm not sure you want to buy their products, they supported Hillary during the election.

What device do you use for screen on remote? I guess you just put in airplane mode while flying correct?

Granted but the DNC placed a worm in the latest software update. The worm which contains code which causes the drone to emits low frequency sound waves to brainwash you.

iPhone. Yes/no. Depends on what I'm doing with it.
