    I am looking to purchase my first drone and I have come here seeking advice on which to consider.

    Although I am inexperience in flying, I am a quick and careful learner so I am not afraid to start with a more professional model.

    My primary use will be photography and keeping track of animals on my ranch.

    Based on my research to date, these are the main features I am looking for:
    1. Return to base
    2. Long connectivity range
    3. Autopilot / object detection / ability to follow waypoints
    4. Third party app compatibility (such as dronedeploy)
    5. High resolution camera for 4K video and raw/dng support and micro SD slot.
    6. Ability to hover perfectly still
    7. Mounted gimbal
    8. FPV
    9. Availability of spare parts

    I have budget of $2000 - $3000

    Please feel free to suggest other features I may be unaware I need or ask questions that my lead me to an informed choice. To date my only drone experience was a small ‘toy’ Hubsan X4 H107D which I bought for my grandson as a gift.

    Thank you
