Cool Features Are What Makes the DJI Phantom 3 A Premium Brand
Not only is the flight camera able to be moved during flight, but it’s also intuitive. It has an intelligent flight system, making the quad easy to fly. The flight control system will keep it steady, even when you may be a bit sloppy at the controls as you learn to fly it, or when it’s a windy day. You can take some great photographs and video with the 1080 p megapixels aerial camera that is included in the box. With the help of the flight control system, and a stabilized gimbal system, you’ll be able to achieve exceptional film-quality images and film, even if your flying isn’t that great. You have the ability to watch moving video as you film.
The live video feed is 720 HD on the smart phone screen, providing a real-time view of exactly what the camera on your quad sees as it soars though the air. You can upload an app to your mobile phone which will show not only live streaming video images, but will show you a GPS map. You can use this map to see where your quad is, and what direction it’s flying in. You can also use it to guide your quad back to your starting position. The DJI Phantom 3 will constantly understand its positioning, and where it is in relation to you. If its battery starts to run low, it will remind itself to return back to home again. You can also tap a button and it will return back to you.
Simple Flight Controls for the Beginner
The automatic flight assist will give you the confidence you need to fly this premium brand of quadcopter. If you feel you’re losing control of the drone, or if it’s flying out of sight, you can press a button on the remote control unit and the drone will return to its starting point. It remembers its point of takeoff, as it has a built-in GPS system. It remembers where it began, so it can return to that point. You’ll find that the quad is easy to fly, right out of the box, even if you don’t have a lot of prior quad piloting time on record. It’ll be as easy to fly the first time, as the next time, and next year.
The quad is also intuitive, so that if it flies too far out, and starts to lose the connection with the radio control unit, that it will remember to come back to the beginning point instantly. There are no worries you’ll lose your expensive toy, just because you forgot to pay attention to it for a few seconds. You’ll find that the flight controls are intuitive and will response instantly to your touch. You’ll always feel in control of the DJI Phantom 3, rather than it controlling you. When you first turn it on, it will raise into the air and hover in place, as it waits for your next command. While it’s soaring through the air, you’ll find that it easily changes its altitude with a minute adjustment of your finger. Tell it to move or tell it to hover—it will await your next flight instruction. When you press the stop control, it was stop flying, and hover on the spot. It truly is a fun quad to fly. All you have to do is think about where to fly your quad next, rather than trying to fiddle with calculations for flight speed and air currents. (There are other quads for that if you choose.)
Flight Limits to Protect Your Investment
When you spend a lot of money on a quadcopter, you want it to respond intuitively to your touch, yet be able to control it completely if you wish. That’s why you can set safe flight limits. You decide how how high and how far out you wish to fly your quad, and preset these controls. If your quad reaches these distances, it will turn around and fly back. It will stay within your chosen limits.
LED Running Lights
The LED running lights have two functions. They can be used as status and direction running lights, or fhey can be used to watch the quad fly through the sky at night. They will tell you where your quad is located, and its current status.
