Dji Phantom / August 10, 2018 / Sanni Pekkarinen
I really did not see any problem with the DJI Phantom 3 except the price. Like the other unmanned aerial vehicles on the market this device is not a toy. Since the price tag on this unit outpaces twelve-hundred bucks anyone considering a purchase may realize that this is a tool. The tool is perfect for top quality video production and getting some truly amazing shots. Once you get past the price tag though there really is not a lot of bad things to say about this drone. It delivers in every aspect of performance and use. DJI has delivered on this particular quadcopter.
If you are looking to get into aerial photography using multirotors there are a number of options available. You can build your own or purchase a commercially manufactured quadcopter. Building your own can be very exciting and educational but it may be easier to get going by purchasing a commercially manufactured drone. Some of the more popular models are the Blade 350 QX the Hubsan X4 and the DJI Phantom series. In this article we are going to focus on the DJI Phantom and the DJI Phantom Vision. Both are great all inclusive ready to fly (RTF) packages that boast impressive technical specifications but they have marked differences as well.
Some appear to be authentic while others are obvious knock-offs of popular hobby-grade quads. There are other quads of even more questionable pedigree. Buying a micro quad with a gamepad-like transmitter or one that is controlled by an iPhone wont truly help you transition to bigger more capable quads. A neat aspect of micro quads is that you can fly them inside your home. Foul weather and darkness require not hamper your training. As I said you will run into things as you find out (and beyond). So be reasonable and stay away from animals kids the plasma screen Aunt Ediths urn... you get the concept.
