Not exactly a DJI drone, but I have had a lot of success with this A2 FC and this with this A3 FC (the Pro option of triple IMU's and compasses). Well ahead of their time, very reliable and still well supported by DJI (the A2 came out in 2010).

MR's are mainly self built 'heavy lifters', hexacopters and octacopters capable of carrying DSLR's and thermal cameras.

Not exactly cheap but when carrying something like this Rededge MX FC reliability and redundancy are vital for accomplishing the mission and peace of mind

Quite right about those flight controllers.. Does DJI still make something similar to them?

Is this poll visible to all users or mostly it will be seen by users of M2P?

The six rotor and eight rotor Enterprise varieties have the luxury to continue flying with one engine out, as for the quads forget them if you lose an engine/esc. They are expensive though!

So what exactly does the MP Enterprise do more or better than a Tarot or similar with a reliable F/C? Here's a good site to read about such stuff Multicopters

I do agree DJI is on the top of the market for consumer grade drones, not so convinced for professional and/or enterprise grade market when you need a lot of reliability and support.

Reliability has to rank somewhere.

Touch wood, I havent had any problems. Forums usually are full of issue solving to various problems. This one is probably more positive than many others.

Considering the tech and often difficult environments these drones are used in I find it amazing how reliable these things generally are.

Add the progress that has been made in the last ten years and I find it nothing short of remarkable, software glitches often being the main issue and usually fixed down the line with an update.

I did look at other manufacturers (Yuneec, Analfi) but kept coming back to DJI.

DJI also buck the trend of zero after sale support so endemic in (the old) chinese manufacturing culture. Whilst quality control or customer service may not be 100% (who's is?) they nevertheless seem in front of many/most consumer and pro drone manufacturers of chinese origin.

Nothing against the chinese but their usual business models are ...

I am not sure shat they (DJI) do more but reliability has to rank somewhere.

... usually heavily biased towards the 'now' rather than good ongoing customer experience in my experience.

Its (slowly) changing and this can only be a good thing.

A good customer is one that comes back.

So, my vote for the most adavanced DJI drone goes to the entire Mavic range but specifically the  Enterprise Dual for offering such an advanced package in a tiny drone. Incidentally I also think its the best value DJI drone being that an equivelant stand alone FLIR thermal camera would cost over 2/3rds of the price of the Enterprise Dual whilst still not offering the dual image feature..

Which DJI drone do you think was the most advanced of its time?

Obviously all of them individually when launched!
Of course 6 or 12 months  later it is a different story.

For me it was my trusty Phantom 2 Vision + with its 3 axis gimbal and camera ready to fly out of the box with built in FPV via an app.
No more fiddling around with a GoPro and separate transmitters / receivers and bolting bits of tec onto the platform.
A true game changer in my opinion....

Actually I think I did include the Phantom 4, only that I didn't want to put every single model with a minor difference. I actually included three types of it, even though I considered all P3 as one group.
