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 Phantom 3 professional used just a quick review reference my Phantom 3. I was in two minds to buy this product however i had nothing to worry about. the drone was in perfect condition as promised all items of equipment again new and sealed. I have flown it a few times and cant recommend the drone enough. Buying refurbished saved me over 250 pounds and i still get the full warranty, win win situation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It almost flys itself Brilliant little drone with a 4k camera for stills and HD video. If I had to find something to moan about the battery only lasts 20+ mins, could do with 2 battery's as standard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An utterly phenomenal bit of kit! I started off looking at £50 then £100 drones. Then I looked at the Standard version of this then the Advanced and finally settled for this. At just under £600 for a 'used' one its a lot of money but boy is it impressive! The camera is astonishing. Its 4k Video footage makes even High Wycombe look fabulous! The Pro (4k camera) and the advanced (2.4k camera) are about the same price now. My advice is to opt for this and get yourself a 64gb memory card. Its brilliant. Regarding the flying - the pro and advanced are the same. Both are riddled with safety features to help the beginner (and the daft), you cant take it too high, you cant fly it too far away and you cant get up to mischief near an airport - it wont let you. Also bear in mind that there is an internal memory that cant be removed so if you did cause havoc and crash it into an air traffic control tower or something - they have the data showing exactly where, where from, how and probably who. That said its range is up to 2km if you have the right skill and qualifications to turn off the restrictions. It transmits real time HD footage back to your screen (we use an ipad Mini which seems the best balance between screen size and weight (you can use any iphone or ipad and any android device I think). There are some excellent after market apps that let you plan and plot a flight before you take off but the DJI Go app is not bad and its that one that tells you if you have to update firmware etc. The Phantom 3 is a massive leap over the Phantom 2 which is still about the same price and as far as I can tell not very far behind the Phantom 4 which is about 3 time the price. In summary its a truly amazing bit of kit. Its a brilliant combination of remote control flying and remote control filming with a shed load of high tech gadgets built in to make it as safe as possible.

Ignore my other question about warranty. Didn't read the other questions! BUT... Is the camera capable of direct straight-down vertical pictures?
