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.
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.
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!
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.
