When it comes to aerial video, I just don’t see how any professional videographer can be using anything less than the Inspire 1 (even better yet, Inspire 2). Sure, the Phantom 4 is decent, but not quite at the “pro” level in my book. You can see my aerial work with the Inspire 1 Pro at my video production company website.

Being professional has nothing whatsoever to do with the kit, it’s getting the best out of what you have in a manner that clients are happy to pay for. What exactly makes a Phantom 4 not OK?. In fact, decent pros are getting very good images from phantom 3s. You could buy and get trained to use a 30K octocopter, but it does not guarantee better images. I learned early on that I simply do not have the flying skills to work with drones. The one I bought is used now for the very rare hobby project, because I don’t have the knack. I looked on your site and there are a few drone shots that are quite nice, but I don’t see anything that screams a certain model of drone, or not. What exactly are your criteria for ‘pro’ level?
