How is it this is getting wifi but the 1DX2 doesn't have it without an adaptor? That's the only spec that doesn't make sense to me.
Other than that, seems exactly like what you'd expect. Minor improvements all around, the only real attention-getter being internal 4:2:2 and maybe theOH LOOK A NEW SONY...
Just to clear up some confusion: if you have a slow computer: use All-I no matter what (unless you want to transcode to ProRes before you start editing). If you've got a fast computer:
a) Use all-i for fast-moving scenes, or really anything not locked down on a tripod.
b) If the scene is static, like the cicada, you can actually get better results from IPB, and of course save some storage space.
Another thing: I personally love the colors from cinestyle, but the codec(s) in canon dslrs really aren't meant to be used with a profile that flat, so if a super clean image is all you're after, try using the "prolost flat" settings that Jaap mentioned instead. I think you'll be surprised how much cleaner it is. The trade-off is of course a little less dynamic range and what I consider slightly less pleasing colors.
Btw you may just want to rent (Other than the drone, since rates are 3x the cost/value of other equipment, and they require a lot of practice). You can get a lot of mileage out of $4K for personal projects, and for paid jobs just build that into your rate. Just something I'd consider.
I just ordered an Autel Robotics X-Star Premium. Hasn't arrived yet so I can't say first hand, but every review I could find said it's on-par with or better than a Phantom 4, and considering the free battery, SD card, and case, it's half the price of a P4.

In a nMP the only way is using a thunderbold PCIe adaptor. On a cMP these cards fit right in, obviously, and then all you have to do is download Nvidia's web drivers. It's surprisingly simple. Don't have to get them flashed or do anything tricky in terminal, and you DON't have to run a mac gpu alongside. Source: I'm running an MSI 980TI right now, not flashed, no other card in my cMP.
