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.
You can program time interval shots you can shoot in RAW format which is something not even GoPros offer. Another great feature of the Vision is the GPS safety feature. If you lose control of it and lose it the quadcopter will transmit the last known GPS coordinates so that you can still track it down. Some of the drawbacks of going with a commercial product instead of building it yourself is that you have to deal with the proprietary nature of the product. For example with the DJI Vision you are limited to the batteries that it takes.
And for Petes sake switch off the ceiling fan! Besides working out those precautions there is little to fret about. As your piloting abilities development you can challenge yourself to increasingly uphill struggles. You might begin out simply attempting to arrive on the coffee table. In time youll be dusting your ceramic frog collection with the micro quads rotor wash. Once you feel that you have the hang of quad flying its time to update to something capable of bring a high quality cam. It is worth mentioning that there are some micro quads with integrated video cameras.
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.
