It is our view that this altitude hobbies plus pursuit is still in its creator stages – so we never anticipate the first release of a new model to be faultless or bug-free. A more significant question would be whether maximum or all of the defects are either satisfactory or fixable with firm ware and software update…and, so far, it appearances like that is the case. As of the completion of summer (2015) software informs have resulted in improved reliability – and, DJI has additional a number of new features counting Intelligent Flight Modes
The Phantom 3 Basics – additional Revolution than Evolution
While the phantom 3 quadcopter was declared we thought it was a pleasant evolution of the widespread Phantom line. Though, after discovering this aircraft for a pair of weeks we could see that it is more than that. It is just an unheard amount of technology and ability built into a compacted frame for an unheeded of price!
DJI now proffers THREE models of the Phantom 3, the Advanced and the Professional by the foremost difference being the 4K video abilities of the Pro model. The models could be notable by the color of the labels and nameplate – the Pro model is Gold, the Advanced Silver. Maximum buyers will be satisfactory buying the advanced model which records the similar size still photos (12 MP) plus 1080P HD Video. 4K video needs a very powerful PC to process and edit as well as is also not viewable through the vast mainstream of devices linked to the internet.
A Flying Stand with a Stabilized Camera
DJI has promoted the impression of a “soaring camera” and that is precisely what the Phantom 3 is. This is not a drone you would want to buy for racing round the park, lifting additional payloads, research and/or hacking, somewhat it’s a tool which permits the hobbyist toward takes pictures plus video from new viewpoints.
The new LightBridge scheme (built in First Person View of what the camera sees) is nothing small of stunning – this system only sold for $1400 in previous quadcopter models. Now it’s comprised as portion of the system! The clarity is particularly evident on bigger devices – several pilots are using tablets the magnitude of the ipad mini or bigger, though a regular phone will moreover do the job. Range is massively extended with above a mile possible – though that generally surpasses the legal (and safe) Line of Sight (LOS) flying maximum countries insist up on for hobbyists.
DJI has beefed up almost every part of the scheme – the GPS now usages both USA plus Russian (GPS and GLONASS) satellites for much snugger location fix, the force system (motors plus controls) is much more influential and features “active braking” which could make the Phantom 3 stop otherwise maneuver much faster than earlier models.
A VPS (Visual Position System) has been additional which aids the Phantom remain steadier while indoors and/or within 10 feet of the earth. Working together, all the sensors plus flight systems make for an aircraft which is more probably to maintain it’s constancy and do what you – the pilot – demand of it.
