Flying Experience

This drone by DJI does offer a lot of features compared to the Phantom 2 variant. As soon as you turn it on you will hear four beeps which are a sign that your drone has started. The drone comes with a stabilizing sensor which prevents it from bumping into walls and obstacles. There is a manual mode as well as the auto fly one. However, we suggest using the manual one for best experience.

The live video feed is absolutely crystal clear and viewing on a large screen it gives you a feeling of flying high in the sky. There is a micro SD card slot available which allows you to record the videos as the drone spans the high sky.


The best feature of this drone is its camera, which will support you in every manner during aerial photography. The inbuilt camera which is 12 MP captures 2.7 K video and thereby producing one of the sharpest images or videos for any of the HD screens you own. The camera comes loaded with features such as burst mode capturing, still image photography, time lapse as well as auto exposure mode. The camera is held still in its position using the gimbals which allow the camera to capture easy shots and hence work at its finest.

Phantom 3 comes loaded with additional and upgraded motors which have been modified to meet the service requirements of this drone and hence offering best performances to users. It has an added electromagnet, controlling the motors which make it free of any physical contact and hence to a great degree durable.

It also does support GPS navigation thereby the photographer can focus on taking images instead of controlling the movement of drone which will be automatically handled using auto fly mode.

The body is made of sturdy plastic which withstands tough conditions and light collision, which may leave a scratch only.
