I am planning to purchase a Phantom 4 and would like recommendations on what to purchase with a $1500 budget and or what would be an absolute must if I need to spend more.

Typical use would include heavy national and international travel. I use a MacAir and Iphone 6 currently. I would like to produce high quality video footage of my travels.

Thank you

As a new Phantom owner I recommend just the basics 'till you get more familiar with what is need or wanted. Modifications such as boosters or antennas are great, but that will come later. First and foremost is the safety of the precious drone. A quality case that is approved by airline carriers is the paramount thing to get:

Next would be a spare SD card. A quality display is also important:

Extra props will ensure continued fun in the event of branch fighting.
