My mate has one ,i am really impressed with it , just a shame Pulsar didn't fit a LRF to it like N870/970.
You dronpro boys bang on about DP and yes they might be good but IMO they are getting left behind ,Pulsar are coming out with more useful features
like LRF or rangefinder built in the scope ,to me that is a must in today's market

Both the Drone Pro and the Pulsar N355/N970 use the same size and resolution of sensor.
Drone Pro - x10 optical magnification
Pulsar N355/N970 - x3.5 optical magnification (digital magnification doesn't count since it degrades image quality)
Drone Pro 800x600 0.6" OLED
Pulsar N355/N970 - 640x480 0.4" OLED
Digital magnification, "Sum Light" and all the other fancy features on the Pulsar doesn't get away from the basic fact that they are low magnification, and therefore essentially, short range digital scopes.

I think it could be a useful feature for air rifles or extreme range, but for foxing with a .223 I would find it pointless. If in a high seat I ping the area with my range finder in daylight so I know where my 200y boundary is. If walking the estate I use the lines on the reticle as a guide.
If in doubt, I don't take the shot but try calling it in a bit.
The money saved on a buying a none range finding NV can be used for ammo and beer!

The drone pro is without doubt a great bit of kit having superior lens and screen. However by having a fixed 10x magnification it limits its use and has no flexibility. If it had the same magnification range (optical or digital) as the N355 I would have definitely considered it is a more expensive option.
I did not start this thread to say that the N355 was the best bit of kit on the market, just to let everyone know how impressed I was with the quality of the picture and it's flexibility to be able to be moved between weapons.
This set up suits me perfectly, that's the bottom line.
