[Best Buy] DJI Phantom 3 4k - Best Buy - $799

Seems like decent deal on Phantom 3 4k.

Personally I'm trying to find a good deal on the Phantom 3 Advanced.

I was trying to see what the advantages are...found this summary > http://myfirstdrone.com/tutorials/buyin ... -3-models/

Why would you buy the Phantom 3 Advanced for the same price as the Phantom 3 4K? Because the range, reliability, and video streaming quality of the Phantom 3 Advanced is much better than the Phantom 3 4K (by a lot). The main reason for this is because the Phantom 3 Advanced uses a technology called Lightbridge which is used to get a much more reliable video and control signal.

Don't bother with Phantom 3 unless it's an Advanced or Pro. Lightbridge is providing the range you need. Lower models run on wifi and have way shorter range. If you have a rig to handle 4K video to justify a 4K drone, go for Phantom 3 Pro or 4.

A side note on the OP's post. Staples has the Pro with and extra battery, DJI hardshell backpack and a 64gb card for $1549. As nearly as I can tell this is a pretty good price. You might be able to do coupons or the like to improve the deal. I had several hundred dollars in gift cards from hotel stays and PC points redemption so I picked one up. I currently fly a Phantom 2 Vision+ v3 so I have pretty solid expectations.
I agree with what others have said. For the current prices, skip the Standard and go with the Advanced or Pro. I went with the Pro due to the package price. I won't likely do much 4k shooting, but I can if want to try it out.
