As usual, I have gone overboard with my hobby. I now have a P3P, a Mavic Pro, and a Spark. Now this (my better half tells me) is ridiculous. I have to agree, it is a bit obsessive. So, which two to keep? I am thinking maybe the Spark for general mucking around, then one of the others. But which one? I like the portability of the Mavic, but I also like the stability of the P3P. Pose value gives the P3P a slight edge - they are an attention grabbing machine. I can’t tell the difference in photo and video quality with the stuff I take. I’ll also post this on the Mavivpilots site. It will be interesting to compare results.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Is it just among the drones or is the 'better half' in the lineup too?:confused:

Unless there is good reason for you to be biddable I’d sell all three- buy a Mavic Pro and wait to see what the next phantom has to offer.

I have an addictive personality. I tend to get in deep with whatever hobby I get into. I am an avid cyclist and let’s say I used to “collect” bicycles. In the cycling world we have an equation for what is the proper number of bicycles one should own. The equation n+1 represents this number. The variable “n” is the current number of whatever is being collected. Adding one to that number at any given time comes to an acceptable number. Don’t keep kid yourself in your in deep man.. keep your chin up and enjoy yourself as long as your wife lets you.

You really only have one more than a backup. And, selling one won't make you a lot of money. But if you still want to get down to two, wait until the next Phantom comes out, sell two, and upgrade in the process.

It is worse after Divorce!!! Now you have no controls in place and could tend to get carried away! If that is possible.

maybe sell all but one before rules and regs make it just too hard to fly anywhere and they end up sitting in your garage losing value.

P4P+, P3A, Mavic Air, that's I have. Funny that most of us with more than one drone have three. One old, one new and one portable. :)

keep all. What’s the big deal. I have P4P and want a Mavic pro 2 as well and a racing drone but need to save up. It’s all great fun. Teach your better half to fly and take shots etc. Happy flying.

No such thing as too many! My fleet fluctuates. I do at times decide to sell off one or more, only to buy different ones later. However, that is my decision and usually because I just don't fly some of them. I'm at 6 right now, and with Spring coming we shall see which ones get used most.
