MAVIC 2 PRO
3 axis gimbal stabilization and larger camera sensor deliver the best quality image
GPS, and sensors on the drone make it easy to track moving subjects, plot paths of flight and camera angles, and automate popular shots.
1" inch CMOS 20 MP Sensor (5472×3648) MP4 / MOV (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, HEVC/H.265)4K (3840×2160 @ 24/25/30p), 2.7K (2688×1512 @ 24/25/30/48/50/60p), FHD (1920×1080 @ 24/25/30/48/50/60/120p)
Although you need to always fly within line of sight this drone can fly up to 2 miles while still maintaining visual signal. Average battery life is 25-30 minutes at speeds up to 70kph. 75 decibels.
The ability to shoot in 10bit D-log with a smooth gimbal allows for more flexibility in post production. I typically shoot in 4k30fps with this.
MAVIC MINI 2
Lightweight backup with unique advantages.
UNDER 250 GRAMS
The weight is significant because the FAA has changed the rules (although still somewhat left to interpretation) to let you plan missions flying above crowds if the drone weighs less than 250 grams and has no exposed propellers.
LONGER RANGE AND FLIGHT TIME
30+ minutes of flight and similar visual distance range to the Mavic 2 Pro make it easier and quieter to use. At closer to 65 decibels it is less noticeable.
SMALLER SENSOR AND 2 AXIS GIMBAL
12MP photo resolution
JPEG + RAW images
4K/30p and 1080/60p video (100 Mbps bit rate)
Up to 4X (2X lossless) zoom
31-minute flight time
This means that the drone can essentially hover in place and does not require as much attention as an FPV drone. Similar to the Mavic 2 pro but without as good of tracking and programming capabilities.
GEPRC CROWN AND CROC
Carries a Go Pro Hero 9
FIRST PERSON VIEW
Must be flown using goggles. The range can be greatly affected by environment and is significantly shorter closer to 100-1000 ft.
The Crown is the loudest drone I own at close to 80 decibels. The Croc is closer to 70. With a lighter build and exposed blades it excels outdoors.
INDOOR AND OUTDOOR FLIGHTS
The power and weight of this combined with foam padded prop guards make the Crown great for indoor and some outdoor shots. The guards make the Crown more susceptible to wind and the Croc is a better option for outdoor winds, farther range and longer flight times.
The Crown is made for close proximity indoor low wind environments with only 3-4 minutes of battery. The Croc is handles wind and distance better, but each drone is made for single shot takes showcasing interesting places through unique angles.

THE TINYGO WITH CADDX LORRIS 4K
AND THE HEX NANO WITH SMO 4K
This drone weighs 79 grams, and can carry a flashlight through dark tight spaces. This means the camera is very limited and must be stretched to the max in post processing with lens distortion, warp stabilization, visual noise reduction, color correction and cropping. It is the most fun to fly and the least fun to edit. No one wants to see this footage if it is not cleaned and polished.
I-FLIGHT HEX NANO
This drone is a smaller smooth FPV option. It has low range and battery life but the image quality of the SMO 4k is just lower than that of the Hero 9 black. For one shot takes indoors. Quiet and half the size of the Crown and Croc.
