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.
DJI is one of the foremost developers of unmanned aerial vehicles specifically multirotor craft. Multirotor refers to the design feature that it has multiple motors and rotors. One of the most popular multirotor vehicles is the quadcopter. Unlike traditional helicopters multirotor vehicles have fixed pitch rotors and maneuver by changing the RPM of individually controlled motors via a complex flight control board.DJI has developed very sophisticated flight control software providing a very stable platform for aerial photography and other applications. The latest entry into the flight line of DJI products is the DJI Phantom Vision. This is the successor to the very popular DJI Phantom. The Phantom was very popular and allowed anyone to fly right out of the box.
Just think of all the awesome footage you could get with 25 minutes of flying! Now the Vision is not super cheap. It comes in about $1200. But when you stop and think about everything you are getting in one integrated package its not such a bad deal. For example if you bought the predecessor DJI Phantom you would spend $450. Then if you wanted to put the latest GoPro on it you would spend another $400 putting you at $850 already. But that doesnt give you the FPV capabilities that the DJI Phantom Vision does.
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.
