Well, I finally took the plunge and after weeks of vacillating between purchasing an Autel XSP and DJI PA3 Pro I chose the XSP. I chose Autel for a variety of reasons: 1. Bang for the buck. The XSP package is an amazing value...nothing out there even comes close. My pre-tax employee discount on the PA3 Pro was about $125 and the XSP was a shade over $200...duh. 2. Online reviews. In virtually every review the XSP and PA3 Pro were neck in neck...I don't remember ever seeing a predominantly negative take on the Autel bird...stellar reviews everywhere. 3. User forums: I spent a little time reading through the Autel and DJI forums to get a sense of how each group of users treated one another...especially noobs. The over all tone in the Autel forums seemed to be more tolerant, positive and less intimidating to new members...that is extremely important to me. 4. Customer support: I can't emphasize enough about the importance of good customer support...it seems to be a dying art. Again, Autel has received generally positive reviews for their US based support in both follow through and availability. This is my first real quad and when i say that I have ZERO knowledge...I mean just that. A while back I was given a special edition Traxxas SnapOn Tools quad by a friend who works for the company. Even though it was just a toy, I could never quite get the hang of it and maybe that's not a good sign. I have yet to put the XSP in the air but I have a sneaking suspicion that everything will turn out just fine. Thanks for your time and be safe.
