That's a better deal with extra battery BenHayat.
Only $70 more for extra battery.
Wonder if this is just as good as getting the Phantom 2 with Zenmuse H3-3D and GoPro 3 Black?

I say this is better, because they have more control over the camera, means better integration. To me that's the best part.

I was just thinking, the lawsuit that was brought on DJI by Collin, that their 31 dealers cannot sell any new products, it actually worked great for DJI, because now they can sell direct. It turned out a win, win for DJI

You think this would sell higher if you had to go through a dealer?

Judging from the 4 videos, the video quality from this camera is just no comparison to FC40 and fist vision. I put it side be side with GP3+

The vids look good but I am suspicious and want to see and hear more.

Where are the specs of the Camera? Does it have 1080 60fps? Does it have higher then 1080? Does it have superwide, wide and narrow FOV's? Can it do 120fps in any mode?

Also is there upgrade paths for ground station and other stuff? Say maybe your own video transmitter in case you want to use say fatsharks? Can the camera be removed? Can the gimbal take another camera?

I don't know I will have to wait and see. But the Phantom 2 with three axis also looks good to me as I love the GP 3 Black (plus not so much).

I do like that you can control the camera though and start stop video and take shots while flying and even preview them
with the visionand vision plus.
Can't wait though to hear and see much more.

edit: Just found this post # 9303 by DJI and it gives the camera specs which to me sound pretty weak "The Phantom 2 Vision+ carries an extremely high quality camera and a 4GB micro SD card. It shoots full HD video at 1080p 30, 720p 60 for clean slow motion and takes 14 megapixel stills."

Compare to the Black video modes

While GP is 12MP on the stills side vs What dji says theirs is at 14 mega pixels. and don't forget you can snap shots from your phone in the air. You can't do that with Phantom 2 and the gopro.

I never owned a GoPro, so I'm curios as which one to buy.
Could you advise?

This reminds me of when I first found mp3 encoding technology and was using it to make CD's with 1000's of songs. My friends were all blown away and I would help them out and even charge some people for my 'mix CD's'. A year later everybody was able to do it with step by step software.

Earlier this year I was blowing people away with my aerial videography and was contemplating taking the big step towards an octo / dslr setup to do some pro stuff. With this and the new H3-3D P2, everyone has access to relatively easy to operate equipment and it has lost it's novelty to a certain extent.

This is a net positive however. I would never be selfish with this stuff as I have had so much joy learning and using this technology. I am glad that DJI is building some safety restrictions into the firmware with no-fly zones and such so that hopefully the inevitable careless newcomers don't ruin it for all of us.

So,
I'm so perplexed!

I was going to order the Phantom 2 with H3-3D combo for $959
I was looking at purchasing the gopro black for around $300
And, I was going to buy the fatshark attitude v2 for $279

Or, I can buy this now that it has pretty much what I was looking for.
The only thing is I really wanted to try out fpv with the goggles to get that sensation of flying.

Anyone here have some input for me?
Now that's around $1600 plus with extra battery or I could buy the vision plus for $1389 shipped with extra battery.
This is a tough decision

Mike

Does the camera on the P2V+ point straight down now? Kinda looks like it does from one of the vids.
