I shall be buying my first quadcopter soon and was wondering which GoPro would be the best.

I thought it would be a straightforward choice, the Hero 4 Black but after reading I'm not so convinced.

I don't have anything to display 4K on and don't plan on having anything anytime soon.

The 4K Black seems to only have better 4K over the silver. The silver has a touch screen - is that better or does it just make it more vulnerable to damage. And then if 4K isn't a big draw and the touch screen not recommended would a Hero 3+ be more sensible, saving a good chunk of money.

Cheers,

Nigel

If you are using it in a drone, the touch screen will be almost useless. I have the hero 3 black in my Phantom 2 and it works great. There is a remote with it and there are many apps you can use to operate it also.

I'm using the Hero 3 Black as well, the firmware update gives it 4K but none of my computers will process it fast enough to watch it (and 2 of my computers are strictly for video editing). I'm more than happy with 1080P 60 for what I'm doing. I had the Hero 3 White and it didn't have anywhere near the video quality and color the Black has.
