So flying both the Pro and Air since February, I've seen some great features and some pretty annoying ones too. It could also be said my love affair with the AIr has tempered slightly.
So as I see so many folks still asking the basic "shall I get the Air or Pro" question, I thought I might summarize the main differences I have found that go beyond the basic differences in specs.

As ever, hope it helps the undecided out :)

Well done comparison and nice video.

Facing this decision a couple of months ago, I went with the pro. I really wanted an air, but there was a sale that had the MP + 1 extra battery at $809 (education disc), so that was decision maker.

Really happy with the pro and no regrets.

Great job Ian!
I think you forgot to clamp the MP Gimbal,nevertheless it's very informative.

That's an outstanding price..... :) Can't argue with that at all!

The unreliable signal of the air killed it for me. Thats why i own the pro.
Have to say, it let me down a few times and that annoyed me... 300 metres and total signal failure 4 times in a row... guess it didn't like my location....
