Most of the kits you'll find for DJI will be close to the same price as another. DJI has the distribution locked down fairly hard. That being said, if you're looking for buying a drone with some support, FlyingAg has a LOT more experience than the Best Buy employee on how to use it on the farm, so that's why it's a decent decision.
For the drone question, download the DJI GO app (the new DJI drones use the DJI GO 4 app, so make sure to download the old one). I would also look up some DJI Phantom 3 updating videos on YouTube. The Phantom 3 series is still a decent drone to use (20ish minute battery life, 12MP camera, GPS, etc.), but if this drone peaks your interest I'd highly recommend upgrading the drone to something newer (Mavic 2 Pro). The Phantom 3 series is now over 5 years old, and this market has an even faster turnover than the smartphone market! There's a reason why it got passed down, everyone else upgraded ;)
