I really did not see any problem with the DJI Phantom 3 except the price. Like the other unmanned aerial vehicles on the market this device is not a toy. Since the price tag on this unit outpaces twelve-hundred bucks anyone considering a purchase may realize that this is a tool. The tool is perfect for top quality video production and getting some truly amazing shots. Once you get past the price tag though there really is not a lot of bad things to say about this drone. It delivers in every aspect of performance and use. DJI has delivered on this particular quadcopter.
The two main competitors are Parrot who have now released the 2.0 version of their AR Drone for amateurs and DJI Phantom which priced at over $1000 is for the more serious players in the drone arena. The AR Drone is priced at about $300 and up depending on whether you opt to go for any extra features such as GPS based auto-pilot an extra battery or extra memory in the form of a USB plug-in stick. This makes it more affordable and it would not surprise me if it becomes one of the top Christmas gifts this year!
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.
Unfortunately all cannot be placed in the same category and those who does not feel compassionate about the animals in the wild are called poachers among us. A study has pointed out that nearly 25000 elephants laid down their lives in the African wild while nearly 1200 rhinos were slayed in South Africa. Killings on this scale only last year are not uncommon and the numbers are alarmingly on the rise. Though preventive measures are taken conservationists have not been too successful in stopping the illegal hunters. Thankfully where human measures have failed technology has come forward to at least try and put a stop to this. Poachers can meet their nemesis in what is called drones like the DJI Phantom 2.
