DJI Phantom 3 Advanced

 

The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced is one of the best drones on the market thanks to a bevy of features and 2.7K video recording.

Easy to fly. Very stable in the air. Smooth video capture, even when in motion. 20mm wide-angle lens. 2.7K video. Raw and JPG still capture. High-quality Live View feed. Built-in GPS. Return-to-home function. Automated flight modes.

No 4K support. Limited battery life. Wide-angle lens shows some edge distortion.

Conclusions The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced is a very polished product. It's easy to fly, includes nice safety features, and captures smooth aerial video at 2.7K resolution. At just under $1,000 it's an attractive option, but budget shoppers may be drawn to...

DJI Phantom 3 Advanced review: A drone that hits the sweet spot for features, performance and price

 

Outdoors or inside, the Advanced is one easy-to-fly drone with full-HD video that more than satisfies.

DJI's Phantom 3 Advanced delivers excellent full-HD video. The convenience and safety features allow beginners to get flying fast. New sensors and an additional satellite navigation make flying indoors and outside more stable than its predecessors....

Battery life, while average for its class, can feel short at 20-ish minutes and extra batteries don't come cheap. The camera is permanently attached to the drone. Android device support is limited.

The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced might still be pricy, but the combination of excellent camera and flight performance and a well-designed app and controller make this simple-to-fly drone an easy recommendation.

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Great range, great stabilizer, and a great camera, packed into a lightweight portable drone

 

I've only had this drone for a few days. I don't have a full opinion yet, but flying this drone is very fun. I fly it about two or three times a day. With direct line of sight, even though I couldn't see it, I got 1.1 miles range from a hill in an area...

The range is good, the stabilizer is good, the camera films good footage, and the drone is portable.

The battery life could be longer, even though the battery still is good

Hold the Phantom 3 Pro Perfectly!

 

The backpack holds the drone, remote, 3 spare batteries and an attached battery, spare blades, charger and cords, and still had room for me to place the extra camera lenses, and several more small things. They all fit perfectly. I wore the backpack...

Best under $2000 video drone there is.

 

This thing just works correctly right out of the box. Range is incredible. Video downlink is the best there is with Lighbridge tech. Considering there are already about 100,000 flying very few issues. Compare the video from the stabilized gimbal with...
