There are plenty of different drones in the marketplace but one of the best I have piloted is the DJI Phantom 3 Professional. Capable of 4K ultra-high definition video this drone also produces live streams video to iOS and Android devices so that the pilot can see exactly what the drone is seeing. The really unique feature about this particular model is the presence of Vision Positioning system which allows for stable and predictable flight whenever a GPS signal is not available. Of course outside with GPS reception this drone is capable of automatic landings and takeoffs and built-in programming of no-fly zones.
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 DJI Phantom Vision is the newest addition to the DJI family and provides an FPV experience straight out of the box (provided you have a suitable tablet or smart phone). This is the biggest improvement over the previous generation Phantom. It also comes with a pitch stabilizing HD camera standard. This may or may not be an advantage depending on who you ask. I myself would prefer to be able to determine what camera I install on my quadcopter. This would enable you to tailor the camera to specific needs. The camera does have some pretty great features however.
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.
