DJI Phantom 3 4K

 

When the DJI Phantom 3 4K was announced earlier this year it came with a $999 sticker price. But the drone was discounted immediately, selling for $799 as part of a promotion that never ended, and DJI eventally made it the official asking price. The...

Very stable in the air. Easy to fly. Smooth 4K video capture. 20mm wide-angle lens. Raw and JPG still capture. 22-minute flight time. Built-in GPS. Return-to-home function. Automated takeoff and landing. Attractive price

Limited operating range. Propellers intrude into footage. Battery requires more than an hour to recharge. Requires Android or iOS device

The Phantom 3 4K captures stable ultra high-definition video from the air and includes all of the safety features you expect from a DJI drone.

DJI Phantom 3 Professional

 

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone delivers a more refined flying experience and superior video quality to its predecessor, and earns Editors' Choice honors in the process.

Battery life limits flying time. Wide-angle lens shows some edge distortion

Like them or not, consumer drones are here to stay. Government regulations have eased, establishing reasonable no-fly zones around airports and Washington D.C., so hopefully we've seen the last Phantom come crashing down onto the White House lawn....

DJI Phantom 3 review: the best drone you can buy just got even better

 

I spent some time at a drone conference hosted by NASA last week and it's increasingly clear that in short order there will be tens of thousands of companies flying drones just in the US. Everyone from real estate and insurance agents to traffic cops...

A generation of people were lucky enough to learn on the very first personal computers and got to shape the world we all live today. I’m really starting to feel drones are the same kind of thing: a little taste of the future for anyone who’s willing to...

Review: DJI Phantom 3 Professional

 

The Phantom drones from DJI are beloved for their ease of use. The new version, which adds 4K video capabilities, is even simpler to fly.

Much easier to fly than not only the previous models, but competitors too. Produces higher quality, more stable videos. Improved controller makes it easier to fly and to shoot images

Indoor flight is still difficult. Camera gimbal doesn't swivel, and the camera still isn't removable

DJI Phantom 3 review: an aerial photography drone for the masses

 

DJI has cornered the consumer drone market by making its products accessible and easy to use. Despite the "Professional" name, the Phantom 3 is a 4K video drone that's perfect for the masses. Hobbyist video makers and amateur fliers have an easy choice...

Excellent video quality ; Easy to use ; Good battery life for itsclass ; Excellent app with useful features

Lacksadvanced flying modes ; The design needs updating

I was a little underwhelmed when the Phantom 3 launched. I was hoping for a more radical redesign, and a few killer autopilot features (DJI say's these are in the works, just they're insistent on them being safe). Instead, DJI played it a little safe,...

The Best Drones

 

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional is the best drone for most pilots. For less than $1,000, it's easy to fly and captures 4K or 1080p footage for 18 minutes. Nothing else in its price range can match its combination of usability, features, and reliability.

Review: DJI Phantom 3 Professional iOS-connected drone with 4K ultra-HD camera

 

The best has gotten even better with DJI's new Phantom 3 Professional, a drone that captures stunning, super-smooth 4K video from the skies. But it's the new controller with Lightning cable support, as well as a revamped iOS app, that truly bring this...

For $1,259, users get an incredibly capable flying 4K video camera ; The new controller and its support for Apple's Lightning connector is a major improvement ; Improvements to DJI's iOS app offer even more control ; Longer flight time, faster, and...

For all of the bells and whistles and new features, in the end it's all about the footage that the Phantom 3 Professional is capable of capturing.

Review: A critical look at DJI's Phantom 3 Professional

 

China's DJI made a gutsy move with the release of the Phantom 3. The Phantom 2 Vision+ was already more or less unchallenged as the best prosumer-level all-in-one camera drone on the market, while the Inspire One offered a clear step up for early...

Range is up from ~500 m (1,640 ft) to a whopping 2 km (1.2 mi) and beyond, although the video feed gets a bit blocky beyond a few hundred meters.

DJI Phantom 3 Review: Stunning Video + Easier Controls = Hell Yes

 

DJI's Phantom 2 Vision+ really upped the ante for a consumer-friendly all-in-one aerial photography drone. It shot solid 1080p video, and its built-in stabilized camera kept the shot super smooth. Well, the Phantom 3 is here—and while it isn't perfect,...
