The Phantom 3 Pro is a small quadcopter with a professional-grade camera, endless configurability, user-friendly, and a great price.
This Professional version shoots 4K footage at up to 30 fps.
The Phantom’s flight and camera are controlled by an included hand held remote and a phone or tablet that you supply. You control the flight and camera movements with the controller while monitoring the footage and adjusting deeper settings in the DJI app, which is available for iOS and Android.
Both the controller’s functionality and the app are infinitely configurable to your preferences. For example, you can change the speed at which the camera turns when you move it with the little jog wheel on the remote. Additionally, the camera functions can be controlled entirely manually, and you can even tinker with finer points of image quality like bitrate in real time.
The Phantom 3 incorporates the visual positioning system that gives the bigger Inspire 1 its uncanny stability. The visual positioning also means that the Phantom 3 is probably the first professional-quality drone you can safely fly indoors. It doesn’t need GPS to stay put.
Maybe the best part of all of these advanced features is that you can turn them all off. For all the sophistication crammed into the Phantom 3, DJI’s biggest achievement is demystifying UAV to a huge audience of people. Beginner mode is always just a tap away.
