Drones are starting to pop up everywhere; not only are they perfect toys for gadget lovers, but they’re also great tools for professionals. Drones are exciting, sleek, and packed full of latest different technological advantages. The DJI Phantom 3 (professional) is a drone that is really standing out from the crowd of drones. It has the ability to bring fun and add also a sense of seriousness. DJI is a known name, they have a variety of different drones currently on the market, so there’s little surprise there.
With this drone, apart from being able to fly high up into the blue sky, you will have all the capabilities needed for recording as you are in the air. This is a perfect solution if you are a professional photographer or just a hobby shooter. With the DJI Phantom 3, you will be able to take some amazing pictures – pictures that would normally be difficult to take in normal circumstances.
This drone has an inbuilt camera with 4k high definition. It lets you record full 4k UHD video recording with fully stabilized 3-axis gimbal. Included Vision Positioning system allows stable flight indoors.
Firmware that Updates
You will receive firmware updates from time to time. This way, the camera quality is going to continue improving with each update.
Store Your Video Captures
This drone makes it very easy to store your fresh video captures. You can store shots on an inbuilt SD card inside of the drone. Then, you can take the SD card out and plug it into your computer in order to get the images and video. This means that you can easily and fast edit your shots as well. Most retailers supply an SD card with the drone, while others don’t. Check it before purchase.
As far as the battery life of the DJI Phantom 3 runs, you’ll most usually have some 20 minutes of flight time – most drones only give 15 minutes or even less. If 20 minutes isn’t enough for you, you could always pick up a couple of batteries and swap them out so that you can have longer, charging in the meantime. Even one extra battery could equal 40 minutes of total play time. 40 minutes may seem short, but in the air, it’s quite a flight.
The “Return Home” Feature
If you’re flying outside, just turn on the “Turn Home” feature. The drone can use GPS, so if the signal drops, it will return where it took off from. This way, you will be able to fly without worrying about losing the drone in the neighborhood. This feature doesn’t really work inside, because of the GPS signal, we’re not even sure why you’d want to use it inside, but it does a great job outside. Keep in mind, the feature doesn’t do much when the GPS signal is strong – it only works when the signal is weak.
If you plan on flying the drone inside, you don’t have to worry about crashing it. There’s an “inside” mode that you can turn on. When this mode is activated, it will stop the drone from flying high, so you don’t have to worry about hitting the ceiling. It also has a sensor that senses when items are close to it. If you plan on flying the drone inside, be warned that it puts off a loud noise, which may be distracting to others in the home. If they don’t mind the noise, however, this is a great way to have a lot of fun.
