If perhaps a P3 comes out and the price point is around $2000, I would pass on that and just go with the Inspire1.

As Many of the Zenmuse gimbals are being discontinued,I would like to see a "Ronin Lite" made available for the 800 and larger DJI craft. A one size fits all cameras in the GH4 and below class would be great.

Then again DJI has to address the new quads coming on line "Yuneec" being an example. @ $1200 dollars that craft is selling very briskly. It is going through some growing pains,but with a corrected camera in the newly released + series,I think DJI would want to compete @ that price point.

Then there is the 800 pound gorilla in the room. GoPro!

That video made no sense at all; who wrote that gibberish?

It seems like a basic evolution of the Phantom - but they have to keep it WELL under the Inspire in specs and usefulness as to not steal those sales.

I would not be surprised to see it be somewhat modular.

Lightbridge "lite" isn't really a big deal, IMHO, because the existing Phantoms use a digital signal for the video. But chances are the newer one will be able to be easier to modify for Occulus, etc - less latency.

It makes sense to have a new low-mid end platform to build upon for the next two years.
Maybe various batteries available to make it lighter...for those who don't need the really long flight times.

All our DJI batteries have "smart" batteries with the exception of the Naza and Lite.
I have excluded the WKM, A2 and Ace One.
