Those of you who’ve taken our mapping class will know that we used a Phantom 4 Pro to shoot the course content. Today, we explain why.
Both the P4 Pro and the Yuneec H520 have their own benefits. Depending on who you are, the type of work you do and how serious you are about mapping, you may find each drone to hold a different value. Tune in to find out why we used the Phantom 4 Pro and how you can determine which drone is the best for your mapping needs.
You can check out the Imus Ranch video and Paul’s famous fence shot here. Fly safe!
Don’t forget, we’re giving away a Mavic Pro Platinum!
