I am an amateur pilot. I have owned a Blade qx350, and a Phantom 3 standard, and an Autel X-star WiFi. I currently own a P3A and fly it occasionally. I also frequent the Phantom pilots forum. I just picked up a used mavic pro on local craigslist for a good price (and flew it twice on test hops). I am speechless! Holy crap!!!! WOW!!!! I always secretly suspected these aircraft were miniaturized "attempts" to have full size drone features and flying characteristics. Man was I wrong! This thing is absolutely great. What a wonderful craft! It is quiet, fast, stable, more fully featured, and more portable. I can think of no advantages now for the traditional-size drones. I will frequent this forum now. I hope the mavics have no bad habits or achilles tendon troubles.
