I want to take video like this:Depends on what you might like to do most....Video, still photography, mapping, inspections, search and rescue, or just have fun with. Theres a lot of automation now, and all are pretty easy to learn your way around with.
The DJI line is user friendly and the standard at the moment - Mavic2 series, Mini 2 are very capable.
I would of considered Skydio rather than DJI but they were not available when I got one. I wanted one to assist with search and rescue- dogs, people, and for land mapping. The software can be more expensive than the drone for some aspects.
There are racing drones and freestyle drones that look super fun and thats another rabbit hole. Probably way more fun than RC heli’s And you can build them up yourself.
Last thing, just my 2cents,...I never fly mine with people around- to avoid being the focus of anyone’s ire with drones and privacy. I would be not be happy with any drone flying over me while at my mooring, enjoying nature, or working in my yard so I won’t fly mine around any populated spots. Just saying don’t be that guy. There was a helicopter this summer that did more than a lap low level in the harbor- and its the same thing - he was the only guy that thought it was cool.
Where are these photos from ?Get one, they are fun. The DJI website has some referbished ones that are discounted. Supposedly they go to headquarters and get fixed up by the high up engineers and come out better than the news ones that are coming straight from China
I’ve enjoyed using it for taking photos:

It was the other way around for this little guy. GW followed this one right up to the stern. Missed it once and came back around and nailed it the second time. You can actually see the teeth cutouts in the meat.Newport and Marconi beach on the Cape.
See the stripers or bluefish following the GW?
