DJI Phantom 3 Professional With 4K Camera

Do you like it ?0

A complete 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal system come integrated with the Phantom 3 Professional edition quadcopter from DJI. In addition to video, the camera is capable shooting up to 12MP still photos using JPEG or non-proprietary DNG RAW format. The three axes of the gimbal give you pan and tilt control, and keep the horizon line level even as the aircraft banks. Different gimbal settings allow the camera to lock onto a fixed subject, be moved manually using transmitter rotaries or the app, or to simply provide camera stabilization.

This bundle of the Phantom 3 is classed as “ready-to-fly.” This means the basics to get you in the air are included – a flight battery, charger, and pre-bound handheld transmitter (radio controller) among them. Depending on you application, you may also require a microSD memory card for in-camera recording, additional flight batteries, and a mobile device to access the app, and possibly other accessories. Also note that a number of important compass and GPS calibration steps must be carried out before flying to ensure the flight control computer operates correctly. Please refer to the manual or Quick Start Guide before your first flight.

Flight Control System

GPS Navigation
Because of the complexity associated with multi-rotor aircraft the Phantom 3 relies on a GPS-based navigation system to maintain flight stability and provide other features. While fully manual operation is possible, most users, especially videographers hoping to get the smoothest possible shoots, will opt for one of the GPS-assisted modes
Vision Positioning System
Optical flow technology uses a specially designed camera as well as sonic waves to provide comparable stability function indoors or close to the ground as GPS does outdoors. This technology allows the Inspire to hold its location, stop when the controls are released, and quickly respond to pilot commands even when GPS is unavailable
Auto-Takeoff
With one tap in the DJI Pilot app, the Phantom 3 will turn on its motors and raise to a pre-set height. It will then hover in place, completely motionless until you direct it where to go
Auto-Landing
When GPS is available, the Phantom 3 remembers the exact spot that it took off. Simply tap a button to have it return to the poinf from which it took off
Return to Home Failsafe
If the Quadcopter loses the signal from the controller for any reason or the battery starts to run low the “return to home” feature will initialize. The aircraft will ascend to 60 feet then make a straight-line course back to the “home position” you will have defined during the GPS calibration process. Once there, it will safely descend to the ground and power itself off
Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC)
IOC is designed to help make flying more intuitive. Nominally, the yaw control will allow the Quadcopter to rotate continuously, which can quickly become confusing if you lose track of which way is “front”. Suddenly your controls can get mixed up, where pressing right causes the craft to move left and pressing forward causes it move backward. Intelligent Orientation Control prevents this from happening, keeping the “tail” of the Quadcopter pointed roughly toward the pilot at all times

On-Board 4K Camera

Up to 4K Video and 12MP Stills
The included camera system features video recording at up to 4K30 in H.264 and also takes JPEG and DNG RAW photos at 12MP. The camera mounts via an integrated 3-axis gimbal that provides stabilization as well as pan and tilt control. Media is recorded internally to a microSD card
94° Wide Angle Lens
The camera features a 94° angle-of-view lens, which is a narrower angle than a fisheye for less distortion while still being wide enough to enable capturing establishing shots. The lens features an f/2.8 aperture and is comprised of 9 elements, including an aspherical element

Mobile App for Android and iOS

Camera Control
It features full camera control, letting you set parameters such as camera tilt, ISO, Shutter Speed, White balance as well as set video start/stop and take photos
In-App Editing and Upload
Once recorded, photos and video footage can be downloaded directly to the phone allowing them to be edited complete video with music, text, and more, and shared on Facebook, Instagram, or other social media networks – even while the Quadcopter is still in the air. If you have an Internet connection, you can even stream live to YouTube
Flight Simulator
The app isn’t just for flying. A flight simulator allows you to get some practice in before taking to the skies. A flight log allows you to review all of your past flights, with the time, duration, and even photos and videos you took

Handheld Transmitter (Radio Controller) Included

Intuitive Design
With sensitive control sticks, dedicated buttons, and over 1.2 mile range, the customizable Phantom 3 remote controller has been designed to put the controls you need where you need them. Functionality includes:

  • Power on/off
  • Take photos
  • Start/stop recording video
  • Gimbal control dial
  • Camera settings dial
  • Sensitive control sticks
  • Flight mode switch
  • Return Home button
  • USB output
  • Customizable buttons
  • Mobile device holder
  • Power indicators
  • Slip-free rubber matte

Additional Features

Intelligent Flight Battery
The flight battery slots into the “tail” of the Phantom 3 and features and on/off switch plus four LED charge indicators that are visible while flying – so you can keep track of remaining flight time without needing to consult the app. For recharging, balance and power regulation is handled internally within the battery itself. You simply plug it into a wall outlet with the supplied power cord and you are good to go
Self-Tightening Rotors
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) have been applied to the prop design, providing them with increased thrust and better efficiency compared to previous props used on earlier Phantom models. The self-tightening design helps ensure they do not loosen in flight and not require a separate prop nut
