One is a phantom 2 vision with all sorts of accessories. The other is also a phantom but I can’t tell what model. Any experts out there that can help me identify everything I have? I have the limit of 10 attached pictures of everything And have another 10 pictures. Can someone help me identify everything what I have? Please respond here or to my email at [email protected]

Thanks in advance

Phantom 4. Does it charge up? If so and linked up, you have a very nice bird! Please watch plenty of YouTube videos before attempting to fly. Pay particular attention to the return to home (RTH) feature as it will keep you out of trouble, if set up properly ahead of time. BIG improvement over the P2. Enjoy

Yes indeed that is a Phantom 4 Standard. If it works and has no issues, that's the one to fly. Great craft.

Jackpot, That Phantom 2 will make you a better pilot overall (training wise), as it requires more hands on control. Once you get your feet wet with that (2-3 months worth of flying). break out the Phantom 4 and it will feel like going from a Chevy Vega to a Cadillac, smooth flying, more control options and other features, but you will feel like you can handle it better from flying the Phantom 2 first.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Sounds like I have a phantom 2 and a phantom 4. A couple more questions. Ive been researching and having never flown a drone, I’m tempted to sell it all and buy a mavic mini just to toy around with. Good idea? How would I sell either or both units and determine a value? On eBay? I’m pretty sure it was only used one time. And last question the Phantom 4 has this power plug But no power transformer. Am I missing something?
thanks for all your help

Looking at that receipt I now realize just how much money I have spent over the years.
If you do try and sell those don’t even think with the P2 you will get
anything even close to that. Most likely the camera is bricked now
anyway.
But I would not take nothing for the knowledge of flying all the ones I had.

That is not a power adapter, it's just a usb connector so that you can update firmware via the PC.
Depending on the cable your using to connect, you actually may not need it. All you need is a usb to micro usb cable.

To charge the battery your looking at the black power supply and battery connector.

Suggest you look at the manual


By the way the Phantom 4 has one of the better camera in a consumer drone, it's better than the Mavic Mini as it can shoot in 4k resolution at 60mbps, a MM can only do 2.7k at 40mbps.
It's also more powerful, so it can handle stronger wind conditions better.

I would keep the Phantom 4 and use it, IMHO it's better than a MM.

Thank you. It looks like I am missing the charger and charger cable.

Absolutely agree with @lannes in that the P4 is far superior to the MM. I would sell the P2 if you can get anything for it, but it won't be much at all. In my opinion moving from a P4 to a MM is a big step down. The only thing you get with the MM over the P4 is the portability factor.

The P4 Standard doesn't do 4k @60

I have several P4 models and a MavicMini. No comparison in capability (and dependability). You will be able to fly that P4 in conditions the Mini should just stay home. That means often. I do fly the Mini but have to be careful of winds. Easy to do when you have a P4 on hand. The P4 has a lot more flight features as well. IMHO easier to fly too. Make sure everything Charges or value drops a lot. Batteries cost $$

If you need small, get an Air 2 but it’s new and buggy too. And uses Fly.

READ READ READ your manuals. WATCH youtube tutorials. PRACTICE what RecoveryOne said about learning with the Phantom 2 how to fly first, kinda like learning to drive stickshift old Chevy before you try to drive the Vette. If you are going to crash while learning (and you probably will), do it with the P2.

Keep the Phantom 4 and the Phantom 2

And that my friend, is the Truth. Consensus says, keep P4.
Anxious to here the rest of the story. Fill us in on the results of your inquiry. If selling, we will need more info to give an appropriate asking price. Like, does it work?

Good luck!
