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.
The device app enables you to change settings while the DJI Phantom Vision is still in the air. You can change the ISO white balance set a time interval for photos. The app also display altitude speed and distance from home. A compass is also used to help you know which way is back home and if you do get in trouble and crash the Phantom will send out its last known GPS coordinates so that you can recover it. The transmitter has changed to work on 5.8GHz and the WiFi works on 2.4GHz. The distance is advertised to be up to 300m. The battery integration is greatly improved and the Vision looks much more streamlined. The 5200 mAh LiPo batteries provide up to 25 minutes of flight time.
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.
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.
