All, I am entertaining the idea of a drone that shoots RAW, for dynamic range of course.. however I am on a limited budget.
This will be for personal use, maybe a paid client or two but not buying for that intent.

Im thinking 20mp resolution? Im seeing a lot of fantastic (!!) images from DJI drones. I would be satisfied with
a little lesser quality if the price were right.

If I could just use my Android phone as the display without having to invest in an expensive tablet that would be
a bonus.. Oh, and Im a rookie, this will be my first drone so something that is "idiot friendly" too please.

What are your (Amazon) suggestions please, and kind thanks for your time!


Only shooting Z6II, moved up from the Z50; both are fantastic

DJI is the market leader and they are about to come out with their updated Mavic Pro, I believe. You can’t go wrong with them!

Another vote for the Mavic Pro. I got one a few weeks ago. I've never flown a drone before and this one is a piece of cake. Do a little research on it, and I'm sure that you will be sold. What really surprised me was the quality of the still shots and video that this drone is capable of.

How much money are you looking to spend?

The DJI Mavic Pro 2 or the Air 2s might be exactly what you are looking for
