Drones are yet to totally cross over into the mainstream, come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and prices. Depending on what you're looking for, with DJI's Mavic Pro, DJI Phantom 4 and DJI Phantom 3 Professional, these three are compact, portable drones that come with excellent performance. DJI is known for its Phantom drones which are increasingly popular for best aerial photography with reasonable price.

DJI Mavic Pro

The Mavic Pro is about 1/3 the size of a piece of paper (7.8 x 3.4 x 3.4 inches folded) and weighs 1.6 pounds, Its four rotor arms retract for transportation, as its four landing legs. Its camera, mounted on a 3-axis stabilizer, has a 12-MP sensor (1/2-3 CMOS, f/2.2), can shoot 4K video at up to 30 fps, as well as Adobe DNG RAW still images.For $749, you get the drone itself. With the remote, it will cost $999.

DJI Phantom 4

The DJI Phantom 4 is also one of the most popular.The camera on the Phantom 4 is exceptionally well made, and can easily let the user shoot videos in 4K at 30 fps. In addition to that, the camera also supports the maximum resolution of 12 megapixels in photos. As per DJI, the screen is twice as bright as conventional mobile displays for a handier outdoor use. A price tag of $1399. 

DJI Phantom 3 Professional

The Phantom 3 is now the prev-generation model, however, it is very stable in flight and produces impressive video footage. Its range goes beyond what most users will need and the only extra requirement out of the box you need is a compatible iOS or Android device to use with the controller. Even starters will be able to fly it, and there are excellent safety features to prevent the Phantom flying away, as well as landing when the battery is low. Expect to pay close to $800 for this drone.
