The upgrades include larger and more crisp photos, sharper video, the ability to use various lenses, and better low-light abilities. The camera and lens are a little heavier than the X3, so flight times may see a slight decrease, but that will not be an issue, as we have many batteries and have never been in a situation where we ran out of juice before we had what we needed.
Below is a comparison of specs between the DJI X3 and the DJI X5. We will still use the DJI X3 for certain applications and as a backup camera, but for now we are excited to begin the next chapter at Southern Oregon Drone with the DJI X5!
