    If true this really narrows the gap between the Inspire and Phantom lines. In fact if true it could be called "an Inspire in a Phantom shell", with ultrasonic and optical flow senses, Lightbridge HD FPV, DJI Pilot app, GPS remote, 4K camera and dual remotes. All for a fraction of the Inspire price point (1k-1.2k).

    We Inspire owners will need a serious bump in camera quality and other options to keep the gap open IMO :)

    In the grand scheme of things the I1 is still top dog for DJI.

    I'll probably buy a P3 for use to complement my Inspire. Currently my P2 uses a GP4 camera and although the fisheye never bothered me much in the past, it does now. I still enjoy using my faithful old P2 but I'm aware that I need to keep my video imaging quality as standardised as possible. Anyway, that's the bullshit line I've used to convince myself to pull the trigger on a P3. Sadly, Its worked!

    In all reality though, I'd rather have $1500 up there doing the hard yards and keep the I1 for the more valuable work.

    So far I'd rather stick to the I1. The P3 has been described as a consumer level drone and opposed to the I1 which is a prosumer drone.

    I feel that the P3 has a spot next to I1 and would use it as a backup drome for professional use.

    Thanks.

    BTW if you are watching the press launch I think it is a terrible launch. So much glitches, host sucks, and off-que segments but I was surprised how quiet the P3 was. Which is more important.

    The MC is awfully annoying :p

    The live stuff was pretty ballsy. Don't want a flyaway there :D

    Don't judge noise on the video, there's of course no microphone anywhere close to the thing.

    The MC is probably their marketing director. He sucks.

    Ugh, when you want to do things like Apple do it right - their "ambassadors"'s speeches are so very obviously fabricated and exaggerated it hurts...

    Their site has been messed up since adding the Phantom.
