A Mayic Air 2 is a pretty good balance between affordability and performance. It's small enough that one can keep it in a vehicle ready to go but heavy enough to be able to be flown in windy conditions. It's 4K camera allows one to zoom in on pictures downloaded into your home computer. It has good endurance and range.
Negatives are it is a very new model and DJI still has some development work to do. It flys and takes good pictures but some of the autonomous functions are glitchy. DJI goggles don't work yet so FPV isn't immersive. They haven't released (planned) an API yet so pre-planned autonomous flight missions aren't available either. For a nub like me developing my pilot skills should keep me entertained until DJI finishes it's job.
