DJI have released the all new Phantom 3 quadcopters. These amazing new quadcopters boast a mixture of the Phantom 2, Phantom 2 Vision+ and Inspire 1 technologies combined to make an amazing hobby and even professional level quadcopter experience.
The DJI Phantom Camera
As stated in our previous blogs, there are three versions of the DJI Phantom 3. The new DJI Phantom 3 Standard quadcopter (currently £619), The Phantom 3 Advanced (£899) and the DJI Phantom 3 Professional. The DJI Phantom 3 Standard comes equiped with an excellent 2.7k camera. The Advanced includes a 1080p camera, that is similar in look to the previous model’s Vision+ camera unit, with a bigger, clearer lens, but the and the Pro also include DJI Lightbridge. The Professional boasts a 4K camera that has the look of the Vision+ with the power of the DJI Inspire 1‘s 4K camera.
Vision Positioning – for indoor flight
Both the Advanced and Professional versions have the same Vision Positioning System as the Inspire 1. Meaning you are able to fly this bad boy in a confined space without worrying you’ll hit the ground (careful of the walls and ceiling though!). A fantastic piece of technology that uses optical flow and ultrasonic instead of the GPS to remain stable in flight. Also brililant for if flying in an area that has limited GPS connection.
The new DJI Phantom 3 comes with a 4S battery that will give around 23 minutes flight time. A 5 minute improvement on the Phantom 2 and Vision+!
