What makes this drone different from the others?
The DJI Phantom 3 Professional is vastly improved from the previous version. The range at which you can fly has been greatly increased from 1km to 2km*. Double the range gives you a further field of flight making your aerial photography even more impressive. As well as this the drone has a better hover accuracy than the Phantom 2 with only a ± 10cm vertical and a ± 1m horizontal accuracy. This compares to a ± 80cm vertical and a ± 2.5m horizontal accuracy on the previous version, giving you more accurate positioning as you are flying.

What quality of camera does the Phantom 3 come with?
This particular drone comes with an Ultra-HD 4K camera that gives you a maximum video recording resolution of 4096 x 2160p at 25 frames per second. This gives you a fantastic looking picture as you soar through the skies. For still photography, the camera boasts 12 megapixels giving you the capability of high quality shots for those sweeping landscapes. As well as this, the camera can also stream live in 720p HD straight to your smartphone or tablet. This works over the maximum 2km range by utilising the DJI Lightbridge image transmission technology.

What is the advantage of having a three-axis gimbal?
The three-axis gimbal that comes standard with the Phantom 3 gives you more stability and more control when using the camera for videoing or even still photography. The gimbal is fully controllable from the remote controller and the dedicated DJI Pilot app giving you smooth and stable footage as you fly.

What advantage does using the autopilot have?
The autopilot feature on this drone allows you to make the most of the advanced automatic elements with the push of a button. The Phantom 3 will automatically take off, rise to a pre-set height using the DJI Pilot app and hover in the set position 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 enter its failsafe mode and return to where you initially took off from. This saves you having to search for the device if anything was to happen whilst you were in mid-flight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome 4k video and super pictures I bought this on the 4th of June and had to wait a while for it - however it was well worth the wait. Really good to use and it returns some fantastic videos and photos. Use it with an iphone 6 but would really recommend a bigger screen to enjoy more

Can I link a Motorola Xoom ipad to remote control of DJI 3 Professional?

Asked by: ynniv
Looking at the dimensions this tablet may be too large for the tablet holder on the remote control. As long as the tablet is running Android 4.1 or later it should be compatible with the DJI app however.
