    I have been asked to do some video work for some local business'. I currently have the Standard edition, but was wondering if the Advanced would be worth getting over the standard for video and photos?

    Would I see much off a difference other than flight distance?

    You will definitely see a difference between the 3 Standard and the Advanced, but the cost difference may only be worth it in productions where a couple hundred difference won't matter as much.

    A lot of local businesses in my area at least end up getting them professionally produced then upload low-quality videos onto YouTube and even on TV when they do buy ad space. If you're confident the client will appreciate the difference, hell, I would buy a Phantom 4. I believe DJI also sells professional-quality video cameras you can swap out for the one included with your drone.

    @waloshin I'll second @MICHAELSD, Really the only difference is cost. If you care about the quality so much and your client recognizes the difference between 1080p and 4K go to the DJI 3 professional.
