Built from the ground up for aerial filmmaking and photography, the Phantom 3 4K from DJI features an integrated 12MP camera attached to a 3-axis gimbal. Apart from 12MP JPEG or RAW photos, the camera can record cinema-spec DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 24 fps and UDH 4K (3840 x 2160) at 30 fps. With the included flight battery, the quad copter can fly for up to 25 minutes, depending on conditions. A 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi link with range extender allows you to use the venerable DJI Go app for live HD monitoring and camera control. Additionally, you can access intelligent flight control features tailored to needs of the filmmaker, including Follow Me, Course Lock, Home Lock, and waypoint navigation. The Wi-Fi extender as well as the included handheld controller (transmitter) feature a line-of-sight range of up to 3937'.
Best drone for the money HANDS DOWN!!!
Best drone for short money. I had the p3 standard and it was good. But I crashed it from lousy camera quality visible on small iPhone. This drone though is way worth the extra 150.00. The camera is way better. Picture in screen is way better. Vps makes a difference, way more options with better controller. The standard controller is super cheap and basic. You are always messing with the phone screen which makes you lose flight time. All the features you have to mess with are on the new controller and also has two buttons you can designate for whatever you want. This drone is cheap and does nearly everything the p4 does. Other than obstacle avoidance. But those features are only on two modes. Beginner and one other. So you can’t even use avoidance on follow me or other modes. So this drone has everything you need. Add a range extender and you have a top notch drone. I’d much rather crash this than a 1200 drone. This is the best deal going. Not one complaint here.
Great drone, horrible instructions
I’ve crashed mine 4 times now (my fault) and despite a few broken props it’s still working great. My only complaint as others have noted is that the instructions that come with the unit are horrible, and that’s why I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. You really need to watch a bunch of Youtube videos and I mean a bunch before you can even start flying this thing, let alone mastering more advanced tasks. That being said it’s a quality machine, very well made.
So easy to fly a child could do it
I did soooo much research before purchasing this drone. I knew I wanted a drone for good photo and video, wasn’t concerned with distance, and didn’t want to break the bank. After tons of research, I was between the Phantom 3 Standard, the Advanced, and the 4K.
Tried few of the $100 range drones and it was just a waste of time. If you can afford to go for Phantom 3 (or 4K version as I did) this is like comparing a 20 year old car from a junkyard to a new Ferrari. This drone is so easy to learn/navigate. Distance, speed and video quality is just amazing. I did not want to spend this much myself and only got it to confirm they all the same (maybe a bit better) but let me tell you – I was wrong! I am in love now and never returning this toy – it is my precious.
Pleased and satisfied.
So far this the Phantom 3 4K has met all expectations. I have flown it several times and the drone works well and communicates with the iPhone and controller great. Picture and video quality are as advertised.
Dji Phantom 3 4K Rocks!
This thing is awesome! If you’re on the fence between this or the standard. Get this one. It has a better controller, the vps system, a little longer range and has the same camera as the professional. All for a hundred dollars more. I have had cheaper quads but this thing is so much easier to fly. It can literally fly itself. Just take the time to read everything you can, not only will you be able to take full advantage of all of its capabilities but you’ll be familiar with the laws too. Also download the litchi app it will open a new world of possibilities that thing can do. Don’t forget to register with the FAA. Just to clarify some misleading things other reviewers are posting. The controller works through wifi to communicate to the phone and drone. It creates a wifi hotspot but you do not need to be connected to the Internet for this to work. I have flown in the most remote places that had no service and it flys perfectly. You do need to cache your maps ahead though if you are planning on using the google maps in the dji go app as you will need data to see the satellite imagery but once it’s cached its there for good. I read a review where a guy was saying he had to take a router with him to fly. He’s either doing something wrong and needs to read the manual or return the drone because something is wrong. The reviews on here crack me up. Most of the negative reviews are because people can not seem to research what they are buying and do not read the manual. This is not the professional model! You will be disappointed if your buying this and realize you didn’t read the description and figured out that this is not the professional model. It’s an upgraded standard version as noted above.
Phenomenal drone. It is my third drone and as long as you don’t need distance over a mile, this one is great. It takes great photos and the 4K video is solid. Easy to use as well.
Even better than expected!
I have always been fascinated with and always wanted to purchase one of these, but never pulled the trigger. Wow, am I glad I finally did! I’ve had this now for a couple months and could not be happier. I have flown a standard model, and let me tell you, it’s definitely worth the step up to the 4k, which has some of the extra flight and controller features of the professional model. It’s excellent in handling, even on a windy day and takes amazing aerial photo and video. I’m still learning when it comes to shooting in the different video modes, tracking, etc., but that’s just because I’m having too much fun just flying around! I’m very pleased with this purchase. Also, I wanted to note that I’m using a Samsung A6 tablet for the controller with good results and nice size screen. I’ve had a couple issues with the live feed kicking out on me, but it’s easily restored in flight. Overall, I love it!
This drone is amazing. Shoots very usable quality video and is upgraded from the standard. It has boosted signal for the controller
dji made another amazing drone
what can i say? dji made another amazing drone. ive had this drone for about 6 months and its amazing . ive used it for a couple short films of mine and its a 10/10 , the drone camera is amazing, up to 4k 30 fps. the drone is very respontive and moves even if you touch the control sticks a little, this is the best drone for somone that wants to get into drone flying but also wants an amzing camera but doesnt wanna spend a fortune on one. i would recommend this to a friend
