The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Review – What to Expect?

DJI Phantom 3 Advanced is another winner from the popular maker of consumer drones, the Chinese company DJI. DJI is to consumer drones what Apple is to consumer gadgets – it is quite simply the trendsetter in the industry. In the DJI Phantom 3 review here, we look very closely at the new Phantom 3 Advanced, and tell you if it really justifies the hype around it.

DJI Phantom 3 Advanced is a superior version of the DJI Inspire 1. It is quite similar as fast as the body is concerned, but where it scores is that it is far easier to handle – which makes it great for beginners and it makes far superior videos – which is great news for fans of drone photography. We like its crisp and sharp 3-axis gimbal stabilized 1080p UHD camera, and we believe the controls are easier to work with than the earlier models.The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Review

The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Review – How is it different from the DJI Phantom 3 Professional?

DJI has made two separate versions of the Phantom 3. We have reviewed the DJI Phantom 3 Professional in the DJI Phantom review [here]. We believe it is an excellent product and one of the best drones in the market by far.

The problem is that it costs $799 – wouldn’t it be great if you could get a drone that has 90% of the features of DJI Phantom 3 Professional at around 80% of the price? Well, that’s why we highly  recommend the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced – it has almost all the features that Phantom 3 Professional has, but costs much less, at just $679.

The only real difference between Phantom 3 Professional and Phantom 3 Advanced is the quality of the camera. Professional captures 4K ultra-high definition video at just 30 frames per second, while Advanced captures 1080P HD live video.The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Review

In fact, for most hobbyists, the quality of the drone photography made available by Phantom 3 Advanced should be more than enough. Go for Professional if you are very particular about the quality of the drone photography or if you are a professional photographer and sell your photographs to news organizations and so on.

Apart from that, Phantom 3 Advanced has all the other features of Phantom 3 Professional, such as live HD viewing, instant sharing, simple, intuitive and automatic video editing, and indoor flying.

Next, in the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Review, let’s look at some of the features of the drone….

Indoor Flight: If you are a fan of the TV Big Bang Theory, you will be familiar with the concept of indoor flight for consumer drones. This feature is available with Phantom 3 Advanced as well, as you don’t need to ping the GPS for stable hovering. Phantom 3 has built in sensors for detecting height and stability.

Live Video Stream: You can get 720P HD live video streams directly to your iPhone, iPad or Android The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Reviewfrom a distance of one mile. This technology is called ‘Lightbridge’ and it ensures that the video has negligible or no time lags.

Bookmarking: The transmitter comes with a new hardware button which allows you to bookmark a section of recorded footage and return back to it later.

Superior Control: The Phantom 3 Advanced transmitter offers excellent over the camera with built-in buttons. You will like options such as auto-takeoff, auto-landing, and auto-return, which make it so easy to fly and shoot with the Phantom 3 Advanced.

    Great review Emanuel!

    Great piece of equipment you have there.

    I was looking for a device like this, in order to use it in soccer training. You know, getting footage from above, and analysing it later offline.

    Do you think this is a good option for this application, or do you recommend another one?

    Thanks and regards!
