I'm thinking of buying my first drone and can't decide what brand/model I want. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each? I'd like one I can take offshore.

I've had three. A little mini drone, a Phantom 4 and a Mavic. The DJI Mavic is what I have now and it is freakin awesome. It is small and portable, takes great pics and videos and is easy to fly.

Here is a video I took recently of a bunch of geese and cranes on my tank.

The DJI Mavic Pro is awesome. There was one for sale on here recently.

Had the Phantom 3 Standard. Wrecked it, breaking the gimble. Sold it and will be picking up the Mavic when finances allow.

if there is someone in the Houston area that has a drone and would like to do a little video for me that would be great. I might be able to even pay you a little also.
