The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced holds an incredible amount of technology in a small but perfectly formed package. Easy to operate, even for the first time flyer, this exceptional drone is brimming with features and seamless functionality. With a stellar combination of excellent camera quality and flight performance as well as an intuitive app and controller, there’s a lot to get excited about.
The Phantom 3 Advanced comes with an integrated camera able to take 12-megapixel photos and shoot 2.7K video at up to 30fps. An improved sensor offers more clarity and a higher quality of picture than any previous camera drone.The Phantom 3 Advanced’s camera has an f/2.8 lens with a 94 degree field of view, virtually eliminating unwanted lens distortion common with other cameras not built to shoot from the air. Built from nine separate elements, including two aspherical elements, that reduce weight and complexity without sacrificing image quality, this lens brings colours to life.
Aided by DJI's gimbal stabilization technology, your camera remains perfectly stable no matter how you ﬂy. What’s more, you can monitor that high quality footage in 720p HD on your smartphone or tablet. This is made possible by the DJI Lightbridge transmission system used by professional cinematographers and photographers.Your remote controller and DJI Lightbridge have a much longer range than previous Phantoms. In theory you can control your aircraft and view live HD pictures from it up to 2km away.Note: UK regulations require you to keep your Phantom 3 within sight at all times and definitely no further than 500 metres away.
Your Phantom 3 Advanced controller can be used for so much more when combined with a tablet thanks to the DJI Pilot App. Apart from displaying images, it is also used to access camera settings, record flights and help edit videos. Quickly create awesome footage and share it instantly. DJI’s new Director Software, a built-in video editor, allows you to choose the best moments from your flights and build a complete video with music, onscreen text and more. Pre-designed templates are built into the software making the process hassle-free. With just a few taps of the screen, you can have a professional-quality movie of your flight, ready to be shared.
Directing both your Phantom 3’s flight path and the camera feels effortless. Dedicated buttons let you take photos and video, tilt the camera, direct where your Phantom 3 flies, and bring it back to you at the press of a button. Even take-off and landing can happen automatically with a tap of the screen or a button push.
Your Phantom 3 literally helps you fly. It processes information from every sensor and completes complex calculations in real time, giving you a worry-free flight experience that follows your commands instantly, orders your Phantom 3 to stop and hover in place when you release the control sticks, allows customized control settings to fit your preferences, and enables your Phantom 3 to return to you whenever needed. Bringing your Phantom 3 back to you is as simple as pressing a button on the remote or within the DJI Pilot App. With sufficient signal, your system automatically remembers the point at which it took off, and returns and lands safely at this point when you command it to Return to Home.
GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations combine to make the Phantom 3 Advanced completely aware of its location in relation to you. It hovers more precisely, moves more accurately, and locks onto satellites faster. With the availability of GLONASS, a minimum of 36 satellites are available to you around the world at any time. Through the DJI Pilot App, you can track its location on a live map and record your take-off point so you can bring it back to you with the tap of a finger. It also generates a flightlog so you can keep a record of what you’ve been doing.
Even when you’re flying indoors or in areas where there’s poor satellite reception, the Phantom 3 can hover in place thanks to new Vision Positioning which uses downward facing optical and ultrasonic sensors. It grabs a visual lock on the surface it’s above and holds steady. Processing and analysing flight data in real time takes serious power. The Main Controller is the brain of your Phantom 3. It collects data from the entire system, including motor speed, GPS location, your command inputs, and data from automatic sensors, and analyses it all to tell your Phantom 3 exactly how to behave at any given moment.
Want to get some practice before your first flight? Stuck inside because of terrible weather? With the Phantom 3 Advanced you can put some training in without going anywhere. DJI’s Pilot App includes a flight simulator that gives you an immersive recreation of flying the Phantom 3 using your own remote controller. It’s great for building new users’ confidence and just as valuable for seasoned pilots to keep their skills sharp. When you’re getting started, the Phantom 3 Advanced offers a unique Beginner’s Mode which helps you to develop your ability in a safe, limited area. Your aircraft can be set to fly within an allocated distance and altitude from you (using a GPS-enabled “geofence”), protecting your Phantom while staying in your comfort zone.
Note: the simulator function is only available in the iOS version of the DJI Pilot App.
Keeping your Phantom 3 Advanced stable and flying the way you want it to, the Inertial Measurement Unit includes an accelerometer that records and relays even the smallest changes in tilt and movement. This 6-axis gyroscope is constantly at work, detecting the slightest changes and compensating automatically. Motor speed is critical to flight, and each motor is managed individually by the Electronic Speed Controllers. ESCs not only relay vital motor speed information to the Main Controller, they also send commands back to the motors based on your input. This constant communication helps you achieve any flight movement, from gentle pans to rapid acceleration.
