DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus V3 – Long-range performance and evaluation.

I went back and forth about buying one. I just wish it came with a case.

This is an amazing piece of equipment. It’s perfect for a novice or an expert. I didn’t have any experience with drones prior to owning this one. However, i got the hang of it in only 5 minuets. While the preview is only 640×480, the hd recordings are crystal clear.

Easily crashed by an experienced pilot – but clearly pilot error. Camera damage will cost $700 to replace. Way too much fun, but avoid, at all costs, saying, ‘watch this bubba’ .

This factor is wonderful, the movie is spectacular.

Awful right after one particular yr of use the camara and the pc doesn’t get the job done any longer.

Coolest thing i at any time acquired. My son and i have so a great deal enjoyable with it. Just one of the most amazing tech integration ‘toys’ i’ve viewed nonetheless.

  • Long-range performance and evaluation.

  • Performs like a champ

  • Five Stars

Camera has its limits and does not shoot good at evening but other than that this issue is as excellent as advertised. Flown 10+ periods with a slight crash or two and it however performs good. Straightforward to discover and addicting to fly.

Awesome much better than new parrot.

However, for some reason the camera is slightly tilted horizontally to one side and need to adjust it level somehow. But, other than that minor correction, this thing is an absolutely amazing piece of machine.

Very very good, but the application requires some operate.

five mile programmed flight designs, out three+ miles then again. Employing dji top flight app, with inventory extender, as soon as enhance is enabled, see are living-video clip steadily past 3000ft assortment, with occasional movie past one mile assortment line-of-sight. For an illustration of regular flight-info through a pre-programmed lengthy-variety flight, look at:https://m.

Can not hold out to get the future model.

    1. 5 mile programmed flight plans, out 3+ miles then back. Using dji ultimate flight app, with stock extender, once boost is enabled, see live-video steadily beyond 3000ft range, with occasional video past 1 mile range line-of-sight. For an example of typical flight-data during a pre-programmed long-range flight, watch:https://m.

    This was the most well packaged, well equipped and easiest to use drone that i have ever purchased. I was very satified in the fact that it came with two batteries and a battery charger, so that i could always have battery power ready to run the drone. My smartphone (galaxy s5) paired really well with the drone and i was able to get very nice pictures and video using the setup with my phone. For anyone who is interested in investing some money into a drone that is well built and will last for years of enjoyment, this is the drone to buy.

    I would recommend adding a circular polarized filter and a lens hood (both of which you can find specifically for the phantom 2 v+ online. Drones (even really expensive ones) have an jello issue when filiming in the direction of the sun. This is caused by the rotation of the propellors above the camera. The jello effect is when you get horizontal lines going through your video when facing certain angles toward the sun. You can avoid these angles, but sometimes you can’t and it ruins your shot. I ordered lens hood on ebay (from a guy in isreal who prints them up on his 3d printer). It fits perfectly and it totally elimates the jello effect.

    Camera has its limitations and does not shoot great at night but other than that this thing is as good as advertised. Flown 10+ times with a minor crash or two and it still performs great. Easy to learn and addicting to fly.

    For the price, there is real value in having the fpv and camera system all in one in the vision+. Doing this with a gopro hero 3 would cost even more money to set up with an fpv system and gimble. The video quality with a gopro hero 3 would be slightly better in the daylight, and considerably better in low light. Night video with the vision+ turns street lights into blob lights, if that makes sense. It flies incredibly stable, and has considerable range. I haven’t tested the max range yet, so i can’t comment on that. However, i’ve had it up to 500ft agl with perfectly stable flight and fpv signal. Battery life that i’ve experienced has been around 15-18 minutes on a full charge. Considering that i came from a syma x5c-1, this is a major upgrade for me. I would recommend reading the manual, plus started on something smaller.

      1. I bought this quadcopter after one crashed on the white house lawn and his lordship threatened to have the faa regulate remote control aircraft. I figured the more of these unruly surveillance drones out there flying, the better. I researched all of the models available in the amazon drone store (which is a very cool idea from amazon). The reviews on this upgraded model were all very positive and the videos were excellent. I liked the fact that all the batteries for it are rechargeable ( there are 3), that it included an extra battery for the copter itself, and that the hand held controller was also included. I also purchased a set of the 9″ blade guards, which i highly recommend after flying it a few times and having it land on rough ground. The craft took about 10 minutes to put together and set up with the quick start instructions. The wifi signal to the controller and my iphone was simple to configure. The first time i flew it i followed the quick start instructions and everything went great. The motors fired up quickly and the copter lifted off very smoothly and hovered about 6 feet off the ground.

    Purchased the phantom 2 vision+ (version 3. 0 w/ extra battery, 32gb micro sd card) from amazon two weeks ago. Have a few hours of flight time on the unit with nothing but awesome things to say thus far. I have some limited experience flying small quads and rc airplanes. The good:- got this unit during a two day sale and got a great price on it w/ prime shipping. – as a ready-to-fly unit, the app (dji vision) is highly polished and performs well, without any sudden crashes or bugs. Using the app on a samsung galaxy s5. The pc software also functions well and allows you to change numerous settings on your phantom 2 (bit more on that later). – this quad is extremely easy to fly, almost too easy. I say that because an inexperienced flyer may depend too heavily on the gps and other onboard sensors and may end up in a bind if not prepared.
