Who already use the Mavic - what could you say - is it worthwhile to change P4 to Mavic? Mavic has an amazing posrtability but what do you say - is it as good in flying/shooting as good in portability?

Its all about portability, if you don't need the ease of transportation and quick set-up then stick with the P4, or in my case my trusty P2 V+.
For me the fact that I can sling the bag over my shoulder and walk for miles without any hindrance was the deciding factor.

The portability is amazing. I can fit everything I need in a small backpack and bike somewhere and pop the drone out. The camera issues are there but can be overcome. They will improve with firmware updates as well.

If you are used to your P4, and have no issues with setup time, or carting it around, you are likely better to go with a P4 Pro, for the upgraded camera, as well as all of the sensors, and improved range. The Mavic is a minor step up from a P4, but a major step down from a P4 Pro, UNLESS portability is what you are looking for. Then the Mavic is good choice, trading durability and video quality for portability.

In the end, all 3 drones are great drones. The P4 would is still better than anything competitors have to offer at this point. Perhaps you do not need an upgrade at all, and can wait for the NEXT version of the Mavic, or perhaps a P5 (if that is even planned).

Yes, portability is great thing when you can go everywhere with drone and launch it for just seconds!
But interesting- how long it will be workable with all moving parts (hands with props)?

Thank you for opinion and advice, you persuaded me))
Yes, probably will use my P4 and wait for next generation of drones.
P4 is fully gratifying me, but when you go with suitcace and look at man with Mavic in his pocket of jacket you start to envy him))) Although I like P4's camera and RC more than Mavic's.
So will fly with my P4.
Thanks!
