Using different drones/cameras for aquisition

We have been using a single Phantom 4 and Pix4D for some time now with a lot of success. We have a couple of much larger projects coming up with timing constraints and we will be purchasing a second drone. Because the newer Phantom 4 Pro has a different camera, we would need to process image sets separately. My question is, which of the following options would be the best?

1.) Keep the Phantom 4, purchase a Phantom 4 Pro. Then, process image sets individually as sub-projects and merge them together.

2.) Keep the Phantom 4, purchase a matching Phantom 4 (older version). This way, image sets could be processed together, regardless of which drone they are flown on.

3.) Sell the Phantom 4, purchase (2) Phantom 4 Pro drones. This way, image sets could be processed together, regardless of which drone they are flown on.

 

Any input/comments would be greatly appreciated.
