Drone Stats at a Glance updated for 2021

A table summary of the basic specs of popular drones, click through and select the specification on each listing for more info.
From this info we can see the Mini 2 is the best value drone with it's 3 axis 4k camera at only £549.
The H520E being the best value inspection drone with 180x zoom.
The Splashdrone 4 at £2598 being a must have if you plan to fly close to water or in medium to heavy rain as not even the M300 at £10,500+ offers close to the same IP protection.
The Mavic 3 comes in strong in video quality and battery life with the 2nd highest resolution at 5.1k but 50 FPS vs the Mavic Air 2S' 30 FPS. Mavic 3 also has an enormous battery life of 46 mins.
The Mavic Air 2S is a great alternative to the Mavic 3 being £710 cheaper with many of the same strengths.
For thermal the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced is the must have with double the thermal resolution of other similar drones, add to that payload choice of a spotlight, beacon or speaker included and the M2 Enterprise Advanced is perfect for search and rescue. Add to that the RTK module for £465 and you have a good inspection drone with precision hovering and flight.

In the past DJI have claimed that their Professional products are modular, but customers have been disappointed when they find out their older drone parts are now useless, for example batteries, propellers, cameras, gimbals and chargers of the Inspire 1 were not at all compatible with the Inspire 2, and all new cameras released for the Inspire 2  were not backwards compatible with the Inspire 1. Customers were also disgruntled when their consumer drone parts cannot be used to reduce the cost of upgrading to a professional level drone - none of the Phantom 4 accessories, camera, remote co..
