The DJI Phantom 3 Professional obviously comes with some upgraded features and equipment over the standard model. Starting with the camera, as you would expect this is where the biggest upgrade is found. The Phantom 3 Professional camera comes with a 12.4mp Sony Sensor cable of shooting 4k video at 30 frames per second with a bitrate of 60mps. In comparison the Phantom 3 Standard model camera which has a 12mp sensor capable of shooting 2.7k video at 30 frames per second with a bitrate of 40mps.
The flight range has been greatly improved for the DJI Phantom 3 Professional which has been increased to 2,000m, where the model can only manage 1,000m. In terms of flight time though the DJI Phantom 3 Professional can be in the the air for 23 mins, so that is actually 2 mins less then the model which has a flight time of 25 mins. The additional weight of 64g probably accounts for the 2 minute loss of flight time.
Moving onto price, the DJI Phantom 3 Professional is currently priced around £800 in the UK and $780 in the US. This makes it roughly £300 more expensive over the Standard model in the UK and $280 more expensive in the US. So when it comes down to deciding which model to buy you need to decide if shooting in 4k and having a greater flight range is worth the extra cash for you personally based on what you want to get out of using a drone.
