Once the app is installed on the mobile device syncing with the drone and getting into the air takes only a few minutes. The battery allows for longer flights and since video is recorded to a Micro SD card getting the footage processed is a snap. Because of the higher resolution everyone is going to want to maximize the size of the card to 64GB. Plus every DJI Phantom 3 review should mention the 12-megapixel still pictures the unit is capable of taking because they offer some pretty incredible images as well.
Also such remote controlled drones are more befitting the environment in which they will be deployed. The new released DJI Phantom 2 is all equipped with a new remote control with great features like a gimbal control dial trainer port built-in rechargeable LiPo battery with a capacity of 2000mAh battery level LED indicators and throttle locking feature that holds the throttle stick in place when descending. Just letting the drone hover around however is not the end of the affair. A monitoring also is necessary which is done from a ground station.
You can also control the drone by tilting your phone forward backwards left or right just as you would in a racing or flying game on the iPhone. The Freeflight app also allows you to directly share the videos to Facebook YouTube or Vimeo directly from within the app. Other differences between the two drones comprise of the flying range; 25 minutes on a battery charge for the Parrot and up to 40 minutes for the DJI Phantom. The DJI Phantom is also slightly heavier and some reports say that it provides better stability in windy conditions but both drones are reasonably stable for that. Replacement parts are easily available to buy from Amazon for both models.
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.
