Default Which Drone Should I Get

Hello All,

I am looking for a Drone / Go Pro combination to use for work. I would like my initial investment to stay under $1,000 for Drone and camera combined. The drone will be used for things like checking culverts, identifying diseases in trees, water dispersion over parks grounds, and taking areal pictures of Public Works Projects. I fly RC planes, but do not have any familiarity with drones. Could some one please point me in a good direction?

Thanks,

Tim

I've got the DJI Mavic, I love it, if you can handle flying RC planes, then you for sure can handle flying a Mavic, they have a beginner mode and it pretty much flys itself. I recommend getting the mavic with 2x optical zoom though if you'll be trying to look at things up close.

Hi confused Carl,

Thank you for the response, I do appreciate it. That is actually the one that we decided to go with.

If I were to buy one now I'd go with the Mavic Air 2.....
