The Phantom 3 Professional continues to maintain the innovation and creative qualities that the DJIs Phantom series is known for. The fully stabilized 3-axis 4K UHD video camera provides a cutting edge for crispy smooth videos and for still photos. The inclusion of a new generation of Lightbridge technology is to make it quite easy for 720p HD digital streaming of live video straight from the drone. Controlling of the camera and seeing a video in real time is possible as one flies this best quality drone. The DJI Pilot apps advanced features enable you to share videos as they are produced. The Phantom Professional also comes with optical and ultrasonic sensors also known as Vision Positioning to allow you to fly this drone indoors even when GPS signally is absent. It also has all features expected in any DJI drone.
So that may all sound pretty complicated but dont be scared because all that complicated stuff is handled in the flight control board. All you have to worry about it moving two sticks one way or another. So which quadcopter will help you get off the ground quickest? One of my all time favorite quadcopters for beginners is the Syma X1. It is very inexpensive and flies very well. It comes with a 2.4 GHz transmitter so you are able to fly outdoors and get pretty good range. Another good beginner quadcopter is the Blade mQX. This is a great little quadcopter as well and one nice thing is that it is compatible with other radios so you dont have to rely on the one it came with. Both are durable and will provide you with hours of fun flying time.
There are a lot of quadcopters out there for beginners. The Smya X1 is one of the most popular. I like it because it has a 2.4GHz transmitter is very durable and very easy to fly. You can also make it do flips at the touch of a button to impress your friends. But recently I just got the Blade mQX and I must say I am quite impressed. It is actually similar in size to the Syma X1 but it boasts better performance with 4 brushed 8.5 mm motors 5.5 inch blades and a 4-in-1 receiver/ESCs/mixer/sensor that acts as flight control board. The built in DSM2 receiver is one thing I really like about the Blade mQX a lot of quadcopters come with proprietary transmitters and receivers and it can be difficult without hacking the hardware to make it compatible with your existing transmitter. With the Blade mQX you are able to bind it with any DSM2 compatible radio such as Spektrum radios.
Next I needed to decide what the frame was going to look like. The size of the motors was determined by the size of the frame and the payload. In other words the size of the camera I wanted to use was a key factor to how strong the quad needed to be. What material to use for the frame? Carbon? Aluminum? Fiberglass? We always want to use the best at first but reality soon sets in. I watched the video of another quadcopter made out of wood that flew beautifully. Wood was inexpensive and strong enough to meet my needs and it only cost about $5! There are many ways to build the frame. It would take far too long to describe all the decisions I had to make. We need to get to the flying! In the end I decided that designing my own custom frame was the way to go. I wanted to be really proud of my quad.
