The DJI Phantom 3 Professional makes flying intuitive and easy. From take-off to landing, it’s totally under your control, responding to commands and automatically handling the most complex aspects of the flight. With the impressive addition of Ultra-HD 4K, the Phantom 3 Pro’s integrated, stabilised camera lets you capture breath-taking images and video, truly pushing the boundaries of aerial photography.
The Phantom 3 Pro comes with an Ultra-HD 4K camera that offers video recording at 25fps. This lets you capture amazing images during your flight. For still photography, the camera boasts the ability to take 12-megapixel photos ensuring high quality shots every time. Additionally, the camera can stream live in 720p straight to your smartphone or tablet. This has the capability to work over a 2km range by utilising the DJI Lightbridge image transmission technology. The three-axis gimbal comes as standard with the Phantom 3 Pro and provides more stability and added control when using the camera to capture videos or stills. The gimbal can be operated via the remote controller and the dedicated DJI Pilot App gives you smooth and stable footage as you fly.
Your Phantom 3 Pro controller can be used for so much more when combined with a tablet thanks to the DJI Pilot App. Apart from displaying your high resolution images, it is also used to access camera settings, record flights, help edit videos and stream live pictures to YouTube. Now anyone can experience the thrill of a drone flight; watching, commenting and sharing experiences in near real time. Quickly create awesome videos and share them 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.
The autopilot feature on the Phantom 4 Pro allows you to make the most of its automatic elements with the push of a button. The craft will automatically take off, rise to an allocated height and remain in this fixed location until you take over. As well as this it also has a Return to Home mode where if the battery starts running low or you lose connection it will activate a failsafe and return to its initial take-off point. This saves you the effort of having to search for the Phantom 3 if any issues crop up mid-flight.
Want to get some practice before your first flight? Stuck inside because of terrible weather? With the Phantom 3 Pro 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 Pro 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.
Fans of the Phantom range will be familiar with the mode settings on offer however there have been some improvements made to incorporate the new features on offer with the Phantom 3 Pro:
Additionally, new intelligent modes allow greater scope to pilots. Follow Me is perfect for aerial tracking, Course Lock dictates a strict movement pattern, Waypoints sets a course for your drone while you focus on filming, Home Lock keeps movements tied to a base location and Point of Interest sets the drone circling a specific area to allow for that perfect shot.
Stability in the air is markedly improved with the Phantom 3 Pro’s upgraded GPS system. This model also features a GLONASS unit (Russia's version of GPS) to increase precision. There’s a downward facing camera and ultrasound unit providing enhanced stability close to the ground and makes it much easier to fly indoors. Through the DJI Pilot App, you can track the Phantom 3’s 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. 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.
