Dji phantom 2 vision plus tutorial – getting started
Setting up and using dji phantom 2 vision plus is relatively easy process, as there is not much to install and do. First the propellers have to be spun on, but they’re clearly marked so you don’t do it incorrectly and they’re self-tightening so they lock on as soon as the copter spins up for take-off.
In order to start flying you will need to charge several parts and dji phantom 2 vision plus accessories. First you will need to charge the vision plus battery pack. Then you’ll need to charge the wireless range extender and your Android or iOS mobile device. Additionally, you will need 4 AA-size batteries for the dji phantom 2 vision quadcopter controller.
The copter’s battery is charged through wall charger or car charger, while the range extender gets powered from a Micro-USB port that is connected to a computer or wall adapter (which is not included in the set). After you charge all of this parts, you are good to go.
As expected you will need iOS or Android device if you want to see, what camera sees at the moment of the flying. Additionally with the app you will control the camera and its setting, view the real-time flight telemetry or even setup an autopilot. You will need to download the DJI’s Vision app for the platform you are using.
Additionally it is recommended to install the latest version of Phantom 2 Vision+ Assistant software on a Windows or Mac computer, connect the copter through its Micro-USB port and use the Assistant software to check your firmware and update it if necessary.
To get ready to fly, you’ll have to power on the Vision+, the remote control and the wireless range extender. Once the extender is ready (it takes about 30 seconds), you’ll connect your phone’s Wi-Fi to it and then open the Vision app.
One of the best things that makes vision plus easy to fly for beginners is the built-in DJI Naza-M flight control system. It’s made up of an inertial sensor, barometric altimeter, a compass, GPS, LED flight indicators and a controller that gets them all to work together.
After a quick calibration of the compass — something you’ll do before every new flight — that requires little more than rotating the copter once horizontally and once vertically, you’ll be ready to take off and enjoy the ride. You will be able to record and take photos of your favorite places with the outstanding camera.
