    Hi guys. me and my buddy are thinking about getting a quad copter to shoot some rc videos but i was researching online and found the DJI phantom fc40 and the blade 350 QX. We are planning on using a Gopro to shoot the videos instead of the stock camera on the dji phantom if that helps. but if some one could tell me which is better for my needs it's greatly appreciated.

    both of them are great. and way more advanced than mine. lol
    i have a i-fly 4 with entirely new electronics. a x-900 tricopter i built, one of them cheap q-bot mini quads from hobby king. and a heli max 1sq.
    i fly my tricopter the most. check out my youtube if you wanna see some beautiful arial shots. click the yt link below my info.

    If you're using a GoPro anyways, don't get the FC40 version, just get the normal version as it's the same thing without the camera you wouldn't be using anyhow.

    If you plan to use a gimbal eventually, the Phantom is set up better for it.

    I think the Phantoms fly better, but you're stuck with their radio. However you can add ground control stations or the Lightbridge to it later.

    Apart from the radio, the Phantom is a way better option of the two.
