A complete 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal system come integrated with the Phantom 3 Professional edition quadcopter from DJI. In addition to video, the camera is capable shooting up to 12MP still photos using JPEG or non-proprietary DNG RAW format. The three axes of the gimbal give you pan and tilt control, and keep the horizon line level even as the aircraft banks. Different gimbal settings allow the camera to lock onto a fixed subject, be moved manually using transmitter rotaries or the app, or to simply provide camera stabilization
Phantom 3 Flight Control System
The burden of processing and analyzing flight data in real time it taken up by the Main Controller, the brains of the computerized flight control system. It collects data from the entire system, including motor speed, GPS location, your command inputs, and data from automatic sensors, and analyzes it all to tell your Phantom 3 exactly how to behave at any given moment
Because of the complexity associated with multi-rotor aircraft the Phantom 3 relies on a GPS-based navigation system to maintain flight stability and provide other features. While fully manual operation is possible, most users, especially videographers hoping to get the smoothest possible shoots, will opt for one of the GPS-assisted modes
The Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) uses a 6-axis gyroscope plus an accelerometer to keep track the slightest tilt or change in acceleration. This data is relayed to the Main Controller and used to help maintain a stable flight
Four Electronic Speed Controllers (ESCs) not only relay vital motor speed information to the Main Controller, they also send commands back to the motors based on your input. This constant communication helps keeps your Phantom 3 stable in flight, and also helps you achieve any flight movement, from gentle pans to rapid acceleration
Vision Positioning System for Indoor Navigation
Vision Positioning System uses a specially designed camera as well as sonic waves to provide comparable stability function indoors or close to the ground as GPS does outdoors. This technology allows the Phantom 3 to hold its location, stop when the controls are released, and quickly respond to pilot commands even when GPS is unavailable
With one tap in the DJI Pilot app, the Phantom 3 will turn on its motors and raise to a pre-set height. It will then hover in place, completely motionless until you direct it where to go
When GPS is available, the Phantom 3 remembers the exact spot that it took off from. Simply tap a button to have it return to the point from which it took off
Return to Home Failsafe
If the Quadcopter loses the signal from the controller for any reason or the battery starts to run low the “return to home” feature will initialize. The aircraft will ascend to 60 feet then make a straight-line course back to the “home position” you will have defined during the GPS calibration process. Once there, it will safely descend to the ground and power itself off
Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC)
IOC is designed to help make flying more intuitive. Nominally, the yaw control will allow the Quadcopter to rotate continuously, which can quickly become confusing if you lose track of which way is “front”. Suddenly your controls can get mixed up, where pressing right causes the craft to move left and pressing forward causes it move backward. Intelligent Orientation Control prevents this from happening, keeping the “tail” of the Quadcopter pointed roughly toward the pilot at all times
Up to 4K Video and 12MP Stills
The included camera system features video recording at up to 4K30 (4096 x 2160) in H.264 and also takes JPEG and DNG RAW photos at 12MP. The camera mounts via an integrated 3-axis gimbal that provides stabilization as well as pan and tilt control. Media is recorded internally to a microSD card
Camera Control and Live 720p Monitoring
View a live 720p HD image with the free Pilot mobile for Android or iOS mobile device. The app also enables full camera control, letting you set parameters such as camera tilt, ISO, shutter speed, white balance as well as set video start/stop and take photos. The mobile device tethers to the transmitter via USB (cable available separately). A wireless range of up to 3.1 miles line-of-sight is provided (depending on conditions)
In-App Editing and Upload
Once recorded, photos and video footage can be downloaded directly to the phone allowing them to be edited complete video with music, text, and more, and shared on Facebook, Instagram, or other social media networks – even while the Quadcopter is still in the air. If you have an Internet connection, you can even stream live to YouTube
With sensitive control sticks, dedicated buttons, and over 3.1 mile range, the customizable Phantom 3 remote controller has been designed to put the controls you need where you need them.
A 6000mAh LiPo battery is provided to power the transmitter. An AC charger is included for charging the battery while in the transmitter. Four LEDs on the front of the transmitter indicate remaining battery life or charge status
Intelligent Flight Battery
The flight battery slots into the “tail” of the Phantom 3 and features and on/off switch plus four LED charge indicators that are visible while flying – so you can keep track of remaining flight time without needing to consult the app. For recharging, balance and power regulation is handled internally within the battery itself. You simply plug it into a wall outlet with the supplied power cord and you are good to go
The D1 Drone Backpack is the first model released in the new Aviator collection. This is a new concept of bags specifically designed to carry different DJI Phantom models with its accessories.
The backpack is designed paying careful attention to the latest quadcopters design; it is extra-lightweight, water-resistant and extremely spacious.
This pack carries a drone with its remote control and all its accessories, plus an additional camera and tripod. An all-in-one carry system that efficiently supports shooting videos with a flying camera and capturing backstage scenes with a tripod-mounted camera.
It is perfect for quickly changing location. With its propellers mounted, the flying camera safely attaches onto the outside of the pack by simply opening the front zip, making it very easy to get out or put away when necessary. The flying camera stays safely cushioned inside and the propellers fit outside the bag.
The D1 Drone backpack features also a dedicated space for a laptop up to 17″ and a tablet, enabling users to check their work and share it in real time.
