Just think of all the awesome footage you could get with 25 minutes of flying! Now the Vision is not super cheap. It comes in about $1200. But when you stop and think about everything you are getting in one integrated package its not such a bad deal. For example if you bought the predecessor DJI Phantom you would spend $450. Then if you wanted to put the latest GoPro on it you would spend another $400 putting you at $850 already. But that doesnt give you the FPV capabilities that the DJI Phantom Vision does.
My very first quad was the DBPOWER Hawkeye-II. It is a "pastime grade" micro quad as opposed to "toy grade". If you in some way find a method to harm it this indicates that you can purchase extra parts and keep it going. My Hawkeye II taken in fairly a bit of abuse as I found out the essentials of quads and it is still going strong with absolutely nothing more than replacement propellers. Buying a micro quad with a gamepad-like transmitter or one that is managed by an iPhone will not really help you change to larger more capable quads.
Beyond micro quads there is a lot of space to grow in terms of cost and abilities however lets focus on the next logical step. The DJI Phantom is a very popular quad that is capable of carrying a GoPro cam. If you select to buy a Phantom I believe you will concur that it is considerably simpler to fly than a micro quad. Ive discovered the Phantoms stabilization and position-holding capability to be rock solid. I can park it in the sky and take my hands off of the joysticks. Even if there is a light breeze the Phantom will remain in location until I regulate it to go elsewhere.
The DJI Phantom Vision is the newest addition to the DJI family and provides an FPV experience straight out of the box (provided you have a suitable tablet or smart phone). This is the biggest improvement over the previous generation Phantom. It also comes with a pitch stabilizing HD camera standard. This may or may not be an advantage depending on who you ask. I myself would prefer to be able to determine what camera I install on my quadcopter. This would enable you to tailor the camera to specific needs. The camera does have some pretty great features however.
