But I also read they are not so good for large octos, plus customer service answer seems quite challenged here.
I see many advanced users are already selling theirs in this forum too.

If there anyone doing advanced AP can confirm if DJI is the proper way to go for a large craft – or not ?

Thanks guys !

Alain, I just saw the thread you started. Seems like a fascinating endeavor, stills with shallow dof from the air. But seems pretty complicated and precarious.
I just shot this the other day and stuff like this is easy with the dji. Gps hold, frame, shoot:

But I would definitely want about 2 meters up or down Surrounding my rig to work with for safety. More if I was a new pilot.
