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.
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.
Unlike micro quads the Phantom has enough mass and horse power to cause sorrow when you hit something with it. The diligent world resident in you must desire no part in causing a damage in an automobile or maybe purchasing stitches for an unfamiliar person. The wise economist in you should never ever forget that you dont desire to squander the nearly $1000 bound in a Phantom with the most current GoPro by crashing it into a lake. Play it safe on both counts with your very first flights and discover a good open space devoid of other individuals.
The DJI Phantom Vision is the newest addition to the DJI family and provides an FPV experience straight out of the box (provided you have a suitable tablet or smart phone). This is the biggest improvement over the previous generation Phantom. It also comes with a pitch stabilizing HD camera standard. This may or may not be an advantage depending on who you ask. I myself would prefer to be able to determine what camera I install on my quadcopter. This would enable you to tailor the camera to specific needs. The camera does have some pretty great features however.
