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.
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.
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.
Some appear to be authentic while others are obvious knock-offs of popular hobby-grade quads. There are other quads of even more questionable pedigree. Buying a micro quad with a gamepad-like transmitter or one that is controlled by an iPhone wont truly help you transition to bigger more capable quads. A neat aspect of micro quads is that you can fly them inside your home. Foul weather and darkness require not hamper your training. As I said you will run into things as you find out (and beyond). So be reasonable and stay away from animals kids the plasma screen Aunt Ediths urn... you get the concept.
