Dji Phantom / August 10, 2018 / Sanni Pekkarinen
A DJI Phantom 3 review would not be complete without mention of intuitive controls and stability during flight. The DJI Phantom 3 drone has a lot going for it. Firstly the mobile device holder for the phone or tablet to control the unit is included with the initial purchase. As advertised this model handles fabulously hovers perfectly and delivers some spectacular 4K UHD footage. The 720p live stream from the camera to the device was clear and very helpful in controlling the 3-axis camera. All together this drone delivered some really impressive results in the air.
Say youre a beginner; you watched a few drone videos and are all excited about being able to fly it around your city and take pictures from perspectives and angles you could not access before. One of the most important features nowadays is the ability to film high definition video; if you wish to display your drone video art to friends then this is essential. The good news is that HD video cameras have become cheaper and cheaper nowadays and both the Parrot AR Drone and the DJI Phantom have them. As previously mentioned GPS is optional for the AR Drone and can be had by buying a flight recorder for about $140 off Amazon.
Also such remote controlled drones are more befitting the environment in which they will be deployed. The new released DJI Phantom 2 is all equipped with a new remote control with great features like a gimbal control dial trainer port built-in rechargeable LiPo battery with a capacity of 2000mAh battery level LED indicators and throttle locking feature that holds the throttle stick in place when descending. Just letting the drone hover around however is not the end of the affair. A monitoring also is necessary which is done from a ground station.
