The 3-axis Zenmuse H4-3D Gimbal is another milestone in gimbal innovation. Designed for the GoPro Hero4 Black Edition , it is a high precision gimbal offering high stability, light weight and plug and play simplicity. It is ideal for a range of applications, from film and TV to cinematography. The Phantom 2 has been a fantastic platform for photographers and hobbyists alike, offering great value for money and a solution that is easy to fly.
Heliguy recommends visiting http://www.dji.com/ to download the latest software for the Phantom 2 V3. If using Windows ensure to download Win Drivers too. Once installed plug in the Phantom 2 via the supplied USB cable. Once the auto updater has completed you can alter gimbal settings and check battery status. Before your first flight ensure that you calibrate the compass and set the Phantom 2 V3 on the ground for 30 seconds or so. Once the home point has been set initialise flight and take your time.
We strongly recommend the Phantom 2 FPV system to make the most out of the GoPro.
New Remote Control Features
Phantom 2 V3 Features
Auto Return-to-Home and Landing
If the Phantom 2 and its controller disconnect during flight for any reason, the Naza-M autopilot system?s failsafe protection will come to the rescue. Outputs of all command sticks on the controller will go to the center position and if the signal is good enough the Phantom 2 will return to home and land automatically. You can also program a One Key Go Home function through the Assistant software.
Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC)
In traditional multirotor flight, forward is tied to the direction of the nose. Using IOC, it flight is much simpler. In Course Lock mode, forward direction is will always be the direction the nose faced at takeoff, while in Home Lock mode forward takes the Phantom 2 back to where it took off. Users can adjust these settings as they please.
Advanced Power Management
Power consumption has been improved by a custom power management system that monitors power capacity and voltage. Low power is indicated by the LED. If power drops below safe levels, the Phantom 2 will land automatically during low battery level.
Install propellers without worry using self-tightening propellers that only install in the right place. These will also tighten during flight, enhancing safety. All propellers have been carefully and dynamically balanced to eliminate the jello effect.
