There are plenty of different drones in the marketplace but one of the best I have piloted is the DJI Phantom 3 Professional. Capable of 4K ultra-high definition video this drone also produces live streams video to iOS and Android devices so that the pilot can see exactly what the drone is seeing. The really unique feature about this particular model is the presence of Vision Positioning system which allows for stable and predictable flight whenever a GPS signal is not available. Of course outside with GPS reception this drone is capable of automatic landings and takeoffs and built-in programming of no-fly zones.
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.
The two main competitors are Parrot who have now released the 2.0 version of their AR Drone for amateurs and DJI Phantom which priced at over $1000 is for the more serious players in the drone arena. The AR Drone is priced at about $300 and up depending on whether you opt to go for any extra features such as GPS based auto-pilot an extra battery or extra memory in the form of a USB plug-in stick. This makes it more affordable and it would not surprise me if it becomes one of the top Christmas gifts this year!
Unfortunately all cannot be placed in the same category and those who does not feel compassionate about the animals in the wild are called poachers among us. A study has pointed out that nearly 25000 elephants laid down their lives in the African wild while nearly 1200 rhinos were slayed in South Africa. Killings on this scale only last year are not uncommon and the numbers are alarmingly on the rise. Though preventive measures are taken conservationists have not been too successful in stopping the illegal hunters. Thankfully where human measures have failed technology has come forward to at least try and put a stop to this. Poachers can meet their nemesis in what is called drones like the DJI Phantom 2.
