Perhaps this is a new revelation, but items in the electronic sector are prone to being outdated, in many cases, even before they are released. Phones, computers etc are on a rapid cycle of replacement and we all accept that the computer we picked up today is already outdated and the new model is in the queue for release. This happens, it is the nature of the beast.|
I have no issue with a company making a profit, this is how they fund future developments, stay in business and be able to provide service, repairs and spare parts for existing models. The market can dictate what is a reasonable price, if the price is too high, people will shop elsewhere and if the company wants to be competitive it can then review its pricing structure.
This is nothing new, this should be common sense.
I bought my p4p+ earlier this year, not long after i bought it there was talk about the p5. was i happy to think that the latest model from DJI was already on the replacement line - hardly, however, i looked at what i bought, what i paid and the capability it delivers. At this stage it does everything and more than i need, if my needs greatly outweighed the p4p then i would have bought an Inspire 2. I bought with an understanding that DJI will be continually developing newer and better products. If i had bought a P4, would i not be grateful that they have improved the camera? At some stage key aspects will be improved and whoever purchased the preceding model takes a hit - again, this is the nature of the sector.
Suck it up, do your research, if you buy near the release of a model you have a grace period, if the model has been out for a while, chances are a new one is coming. Put your big boy pants on and be grateful things are constantly improving and getting better.
I love my p4p+ but i also look forward to the new model and see what they have done to improve my flight and video experience. By the time that comes, i would have many flight hours under my belt and could appreciate more graciously the improvements.
