Phantom 4 Advanced vs Pro vs Standard Model

DJI now offers three models in its Phantom 4 camera drone product line.  The new Advanced version offers a mid-range in price and functionality between the Pro and standard 4 versions.  The Advanced provides a lower price point than the Pro while still offering the upgraded camera from the standard model … 4K/60fps : 20MP vs 4K/30fps : 12MP.  Also, the rear vision sensors of the Pro were removed on the Advanced model, but you still get the front obstacle sensing range of the Pro verses that of the standard version, 30m vs 15m, respectively.  Watch the above video for a good introduction to the Phantom 4 camera drone line.
