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.
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.
And though the large 5200 mAh batteries provide long endurance flights of up to 25 minutes they are quite expensive. Also the props are more expensive than if you bought standard props. But overall for someone who is looking to get a full package helping them get into the hobby the DJI Phantom and DJI Phantom Vision are great quadcopters to go with. Remember to always fly responsibly and be conscious of the safety of those around you. Never fly over people or in populated areas and practice in open fields. Make sure all batteries are charged before beginning to fly the last thing you want is to lose signal and have a fly away.
My very first quad was the DBPOWER Hawkeye-II. It is a "pastime grade" micro quad as opposed to "toy grade". If you in some way find a method to harm it this indicates that you can purchase extra parts and keep it going. My Hawkeye II taken in fairly a bit of abuse as I found out the essentials of quads and it is still going strong with absolutely nothing more than replacement propellers. Buying a micro quad with a gamepad-like transmitter or one that is managed by an iPhone will not really help you change to larger more capable quads.
