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.
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.
And though the large 5200 mAh batteries provide long endurance flights of up to 25 minutes they are quite expensive. Also the props are more expensive than if you bought standard props. But overall for someone who is looking to get a full package helping them get into the hobby the DJI Phantom and DJI Phantom Vision are great quadcopters to go with. Remember to always fly responsibly and be conscious of the safety of those around you. Never fly over people or in populated areas and practice in open fields. Make sure all batteries are charged before beginning to fly the last thing you want is to lose signal and have a fly away.
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.
