DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Professional Quadcopter Drone Released – Worlds Best 4K Camera Drone

If you’re looking for the best drone to buy this side of summer 2015 then it’s without a doubt the DJI Phantom 3 Quadcopter Drone just announced by DJI and shipping soon. There will be both a Professional and an Advanced model. Each with their own little differences in the camera dept. The Phantom 3 RC imaging platform is a complete replacement to the Phantom 2 with better, upgraded, smarter motors, improved stability and control and improved battery life. The new Phantom 3 Drone is much more user friendly for young and experienced alike because of the new inbuilt technologies and will be available to buy soon through independent providers. says Michael Perry of SZ DJI Technology Co. Here we’ll go over some of the new things about the DJI Phantom 3 drone.

Ultrasonic Pings Always Connected

This time round, they’ve put more emphasis on making it as easy as possible to “make aerial imaging as simple and intuitive as smartphone photography will allow”. So they overhauled the motors with some fine tuning to make them start and stop faster than the other Phantom drones. And DJI have increased the number of satellites that Phantom drones are able to use for GPS localization and improved their own VPS (Visual Positioning System). The VPS system works by pinging the ground with ultrasonic sensors along with a camera that takes an image of the ground and checks it against another in real time to provide better stability for when there is no GPS connection.

Upgraded 4K Camera System and Stability

Where it comes into its own is the upgraded digital camera system that is has. You can capture 4K video in 24, 25 or 30p and take 12 megapixel photos in either Jpeg or DMG RAW format for editing. The Phantom 3 Professional gives you a 94 degree field of view via its lens and there’s a bigger image sensor for bigger better footage and photos. The Phantom 3 Advanced has 4K recording in 1080p at 60fps. Each version comes with a 3-axis stabilized gimbal which takes much smoother footage and photos.

Improved Flight Time Better Control

With a bigger battery, it can hold more charge, so you can fly for longer up to 23 minutes on a full charge. The control has been rethought and had some of the issue present in previous models such as letting you take pictures or start recording while adjusting the view etc all while never letting go of the controller. With the new Lightbridge technology you can record 720p video and view the live feed taken on the drone’s camera and sent to you in real time from up to 2 miles away. And if your drone goes out of reach, it will automatically fly home. The updated positioning system works in conjunction with GPS so the Phantom 3 can find a closer satellite for quicker and better signal and location based awareness.

DJI have included a lot of things with the new Phantom 3 Drone that they never in the other series unless you purchased them as a separate addon. The interface knows when a Phantom is detected and enabled you to control the white balance and other aspects of the camera such as shutter speed and the aperture right from with the App. The Pilot App keep track of the Phantom 3’s coordinates and altitude depending upon the position of your drone. The Phantom 3 drone features Fly Safe which is a database of drone flying regulations all across countries that lets drone users know what the laws and regulations for drone flight are in your area.

Real Time YouTube Feed

Now with the Phantom 3 Drone 2015 you can stream live video straight to YouTube as you see it, as you take it. Thanks to Live YouTube Integration. This has been seen put in use before when live video was streamed from the skies of LA, Greece and Singapore directly to YouTube and the video was very good quality, nice and clear with no loss of quality even though it had been streamed from the other side of the planet.

Practice Makes Perfect

With the new Pilot App new users and flyers will be able to take the Phantom drone for a simulated flight with the Phantom simulator App. Learn and brush up on your flying skills you will be able to fly the Phantom 3 using the same controller sticks you will when you take the real thing for a flight. And you get feedback from the recorded flight logs taken as you fly.

Something that will inspire many especially those serious directors is the new Director Mode that lets you select only certain times of recorded flight video taken so you can cut your video clips into a template not needing to sieve through many hours of footage for quicker editing and movie creation.
