The Phantom Vision takes it a step further providing a first person vision (FPV) experience by streaming live video from the attached HD 1080p camera via WiFi to your tablet or smart phone. The transmitter has a stand for attaching your device so that you can watch where you are flying. The camera is pretty good. Not as good as a GoPro but it does record in 1080p and has a 14MP camera. Its field of view can be changed between 140/120/90 degrees. It can also take photos in RAW format which is one improvement over the GoPro.
The DJI Phantom 3 is a professional drone that should be in the arsenal of any serious hobbyist or video production company. The user-friendly performance is miles above many of the lower priced models many drone pilots learn on and the massive technical wizardry involved in this unit underscore that point. This model is made to bring video from UAVs to the next level and it succeeds in every way. National Geographic is a great channel. As much as it brings wildlife in a totally different frame in front of us it also brings the ugly side that wildlife has to face in the hands of a class that is supposed to be intelligent and compassionate- mankind.
However the DJI Phantom comes with GPS capability and a return home feature built in. Apart from the price difference between these two drones the way they are controlled is the next largest difference. Parrot with help from French researchers have created quite an intuitive app for iOS and Android called Parrot Freeflight. The AR Parrot 2.0 drone basically acts as a WiFi hotspot which connects to your smartphone or tablet and this allows it to stream HD video directly to your device.
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.
