DJI Phantom Vision 2+
A Drone Hobbyist Sweet Sport…
If you are shopping around for an easy to fly cutting edge quadcopter, that involves none of the usual DIY approaches, then the phantom vision 2+ is bound to hit that elusive drone experience sweet spot.
Featuring an amazing 14 MP inbuilt camera capable of recording HD video at 1080p directly to Micro SD card, this quadcopter is every bit a hobbyist dream come true. Shipped ready to fly and capable of over 25 minutes flight time on a fully charged battery, it includes intelligent circuitry as well as remaining charge indicator; never again shall you crash your drone because you are having too much fun.
The vision 2+ features not only a high-tech camera but also a built-in gimbal that is electronically stabilized on three-axis. That means you can incorporate pitching and rolling movements while filming and the finished product will be remarkable smooth and stable.
The state of the art anti-vibration platform means no more run of the mill flying routine; fly creatively, capture breathtaking footage each and every time. What’s more the camera can tilt up to 90 degrees giving you an incredible range of shots. At the same time control the exposure compensation, ISO and the white balance of any pictures taken in addition to selection between a 90, 120 or 140 degrees field of views.
The quadcopter drone is designed with the ease of flying in mind, from the state of the art self-stabilization to hovering capacity when you take your hands off the controls. The flight telemetry ensures that you never lose your prized drone if it moves out of range or lose sight; it’ll always return to the takeoff position. It has been observed to go back to the take-off position with an accuracy of up to four feet! How cool is that? You might, however, reconsider this if your take off position is on a water body – they don’t take too well to cold showers, even warm one for that matter.
Luckily the drone comes equipped with a Wi-Fi range extender which makes it possible boost the signal range up to 300 meters, subject to prevailing environmental conditions. They make it exceptionally hard to lose your drone, but make it mandatory to have an IOS or Android device to fly this quad.
To kick off, you need to load the smart device with the DJI Vision App, which gives you greater control of the camera and lets you set up a 16 waypoints autopilot flight plan. The Naza-M flight control system comes laden with flying goodies that would rival a commercial jet. From the barometric altimeter to LED flight indicator, to compasses to the GPS and the state of the art controller, this quad has really outdone itself.
400 Feet at 35mph
Among the exceptional features of these quads that have dedicated landing props that make it a breeze to land, is the first person flight capability. You can now soar at the recommended 400 feet at the respectable 35mph, and have an unbelievable first-person view of world whizzing by from your smartphone device. The DJI phantom vision 2+ makes a perfect quad for everyone; from hobbyists to professionals, newbies, and experts, alike.
