Since 720p 60 looked better than 1080p 30 will 1080p 60 look better than 4k 30?

Im just wondering. On my P2v+v3 the videos looked much better at 720p 60 than they did with 1080p 30.   Will I find my self in the same situation with 1080p 60 over the 4k 30 on the P3?

I was wondering if the advanced model performs exactly like the professional when both set to 1080p.

I would assume that 1080p should perform the same since it appears both models use the same camera with the same specs, except 4K is disabled (via software, I would presume) on the advanced model.

Here are the camera settings for each to compare...they look identical in every other aspect other than the 4K,.

The answer is probably yes - you will be in the same situation.
But it always depends......

Since most people are going to be looking at your vids one screens that cannot start to show the differences.....it doesn't matter much. The 60fps allows for slowing down the motion in your vids.

The 4K allows for some better screen grabs. It's all good.

No, 4K is essentially 4x bigger than 1080p. The difference between 1080p and 720p is much smaller than 4K and 1080p.

Just to clarify, 'SD' in your pic is not 720p. 720p is 1280x720.

short answer - it depends upon a camera. 60fps done on a cheap tool generally makes panning scenes look way better. 30fps shot with a pro tool will not have most of issues you would see from gopro or any DSLR. 30fps stream may be looking better if done in bad light conditions and if camera is stationary.
there is also lot you can do in post processing - a nice clean 720 60fps video can be upsampled into 4K stream and no one will ever see a difference. a bad grainy noisy 1080 60K go pro may be unusable no matter what you do with it. 4K raw original HDMI stream is a great thing to have but devil is in details, also it is not clear what all those tools will provide to allow direct raw HDMI feeds, ideally you would want to use an external recorder, all in all I would feel more confident to work with original gopro products as those are at least a known evil, but realistically none of those a pro quality tools, yet to hook up something like Canon C100 or Blackmagic 4K, not sure when it would even be possible.
All this stuff is still on the edge between a toy and a pro tool, there are obviously other drones that can lift serious load but it is beyond cost you want to absorb, it is easier to hire it if needed.

What fps you choose & how it looks depends on the item or event you are recording. Trying to record a fast car at 30fps will look crap but at 60fps it'll look sweet. Recording a landscape shot with  60fps would be a waste also, so then would be the 30fps option.
