DJI Phantom 4 Pro (Best Camera)

DJI Phantom 4 ProThe Phantom 4 Pro’s camera is a little better than the camera on the Mavic. If you are looking for a camera that can shoot 4k at 60 frames per second, the Phantom 4 Pro is probably a better choice.

The camera on this model has been upgraded from the standard phantom 4 advanced, and there are some other notable upgrades. The phantom for has 360-degree obstacle avoidance as well as an additional rear vision system.

The camera shoots 4k video at 60fps and can burst shoot stills at 14fps. The titanium  magnesium alloy makes the body structure both strong and similar in weight to the advanced version.

DJI Mavic Pro Platinum (Best for Hobbyists)

Best Drone Under 2000 DollarsThe DJI Mavic Pro Platinum is one of the latest drones released by DJI. It is a great drone for hobbyists and professionals alike. The camera shoots 4k video at 30fps, which is ideal for most people. It has a small and compact design that makes it easy to take anywhere.

With an upgraded flight time of up to 30 minutes and a max speed of 60 miles per hour you’ll be able to get almost any shot. The Platinum version is also about 60 percent quieter than the standard pro version.

The drone has impressive stability and handles extremely well in the wind for its size. You can read a full review on the DJI Mavic here

DJI Inspire 1 V2 Combo

DJI Inspire 1 V2While the Inspire 1 is an impressive looking drone, for most people, the phantom 4 Pro and Mavic Pro Platinum are more practical.

Like the other drones under 2000 dollars above the Inspire 1 V2 has a 4k camera that shoots 4k video at 24-30 frames per second.

Or, it can shoot 1080p at 24-60 frames per second. The camera shoots 12-megapixel photos.

Autel Robotics 7 Star Premium

Autel X Star Premium QuadcopterAutel makes a solid drone that is a good DJI alternative. One great thing about the X-star is the gimbal is removable, so the camera and/or gimbal can easily be replaced or upgraded.

The drone also shoots 4k video and has a ton of great features like Duel GPS/GLONASS outdoor navigation and Starpoint positioning system.

The drone also comes with some useful accessories including a 64BG SD card, Hard case, and intuitive controller.

DJI Spark (Best Value)

DJI SparkIf you just need a basic drone that shoots full HD video (1080p) then the Spark is a great pick. It doesn’t have the flight time of some of the other drones on this list. But still, 16 minutes isn’t bad, and, the fly more combo comes with an extra battery.

This is another one of DJI’s latest drones. I recommend the fly more combo because it comes with a lot of great accessories like the carrying case, controller, charger (instead of USB charger), propeller guards, and more.
