The Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter with Gimbal-Stabilized 14MP, 1080p Camera from DJI is based on the same air frame as the Phantom 2 and Phantom 2 Vision. Unlike its siblings, however, it features a 14 MP camera that is stabilized and controlled with an integrated 3-axis gimbal. Gimbal stabilization makes the Phantom 2 Vision+ ideal for shooting aerial footage and photos. The camera can take 14 MP, Adobe DNG RAW photos, and can record video in 1080p Full HD at 30 fps or 720p at 60 fps for creating slow motion effects.

The Phantom 2 Vision+ ships ready-to-fly, meaning that a radio controller--often referred to as a transmitter is included with it and is pre-bound to the aircraft and that only minimal assembly using common household tools is required. It features a 5,200 mAh battery that can sustain the quadcopter in the air for up to 25 minutes. The transmitter features a line-of-sight range of up to 2625', depending on conditions.

The camera is controlled via 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi using an app available for iOS and Android devices. Using the supplied mount, you can attach your smartphone directly to the controller, giving you a "heads up" display directly from the camera's point-of-view. From the app you will also be able to start and stop video recording, take a snapshot and even tilt the camera up or down.

Because of the complexity associated with multi-rotor aircraft the Phantom 2 Vision+ 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 GPS attitude mode. GPS attitude mode is an autopilot system that keeps the Quadcopter stable and right-side-up when moving, and holds it in a fixed horizontal and vertical position whenever you release the controls. This is ideal for shooting video because you can compensate for light or moderate wind that might otherwise cause the aircraft to drift.

As with the other Phantom 2 models, 5200 mAh battery system is simplified over the original version 1 Phantom. The battery now slots in, and provides LED indicators on outside, tail-end of the aircraft so they can be seen in flight. Charging is also simplified, with all of the charging circuitry built into the battery itself. You simply need to plug it into the wall with the supplied universal AC adapter. An DC car charger, available separable, can also be used.

The Phantom 2 Vision+ includes a Wi-Fi Range extender that will increase the wireless range of the smartphone used for FPV camera operation up to nearly 2300' line-of-sight. The range extender mounts on the transmitter (radio controller) along with the smartphone.

Finally, there is a 4GB MicroSD card included to help get you started filming and taking photos with the 14MP camera.

Gimbal Stabilized 14 MP HD Camera
The Phantom 2 Vision+ features a 14 MP camera specially with integrated 3-axis gimbal designed specifically for use with the Quadcopter. In addition to photos, the camera can record 1920 x 1080 resolution video at 30 fps and 720 video at 60 fps. The camera is controlled wirelessly via WiFi using an app available for smartphones with Android or iOS. Internal recording is to a MicroSD memory cards. Additionally, once captured footage can be uploaded from your smartphone to social media websites such as Facebook
Attitude and GPS Attitude Flight Modes
The Phantom 2 Vision+ flight control system has two computer-assisted flight modes for you to choose from. Of the two, GPS attitude mode is the most automatic. In GPS attitude mode the Quadcopter will stop as soon as you release the controls and stay hovering at a fixed horizontal and vertical position. This setting is the easiest to fly and is generally preferred for shooting video as the Quadcopter won't sway or drift because of light wind gusts

The second, attitude mode, is a more manual flying mode in which the Phantom Vision does not try and maintain a fixed spatial position. When you release the controls it will continue to drift unless friction slows it down or you stop it. And in this mode it will be more likely to be blown around if there is any wind. This not a true manual mode, however, in that the GPS navigation system is still used to maintain flight stability and by the "return to home" feature in the event of signal loss.
Return to Home Failsafe
If the Quadcopter loses the signal from the controller for any reason 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
DJI Vision iOS and Android App
The DJI Vision App for iOS and Android smartphones provides many functions apart from just FPV monitoring, such as telemetry of vital flight stats including remaining battery and number of GPS satellites and a radar scope to help avoid collisions. It also features 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. Once recorded, photos and video footage can be downloaded directly to the phone allowing them to be shared on Facebook, Instagram or other social media networks, even while the Quadcopter is still in the air
Assistant Software
Windows- and OSX-based software allows you to enable Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC), update firmware, and adjust other aircraft and transmitter parameters. In addition, the software allows you to unlock the manual flying mode. Manual Mode will override all autopilot redundancy and failsafes, therefore should only be engaged by experienced pilots
Slot-In Battery with LED Status Indicators
A 5200 mAh battery slots into the "tail" of the Phantom 2 and enables up to 25 minutes of flying time. It features and on/off switch and four LED charge indicators that are visible while flying so you can keep track of remaining flight time. 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
Included 5.8 GHz Transmitter
The Phantom 2 Vision+ features an included 5.8 GHz RF remote transmitter, with dual toggle joystick controls similar to the kind found on other multi-rotor RC aircraft. The left stick controls throttle (up/down) and yaw (essentially rotation). And the right stick controls roll (side-to-side tilt) and pitch (tilting the nose up or down). A switch on the top right lets you choose between Attitude and GPS flight modes and a similar switch on the left lets you select between IOC modes. The control unit also features a detachable mount for holding your smartphone
LED Status Indicator
LED status light on the rear struts of the Phantom 2 Vision provide you with various feedback as well as warnings. Colors alternate between green, amber and red and can either be flashing or solid. These messages give you valuable information such as whether the GPS system is properly calibrated, warning you the battery is getting low or telling you the remote's signal is out of range
Self-Tightening Rotor
The Phantom 2 features a rotor design that is new for this model. There is no longer a separate prop nut and the threading is designed to be self-tightening, so there is no danger of a loose prop coming off in flight

    B&H did a fantastic job getting the Phantom to me as promised. Good price too. This is not a toy, and people should treat it like it is a $5,000 device and make sure they know what they are doing before they fly it. Too many people charge the batteries and go outside and try to fly it before they read the manual 2 or 3 times.

    I had the Phantom 2 Vision and got the Vision Plus. Major improvement in stability and usability of video because of the stabilized gimbal. Camera quality is impressive and stills are fantastic. Watch other videos on the web to learn what works best. Lots of great features, I won't repeat them here.

    If you get one, here are things you should know. WiFi interference will shorten range in most neighborhoods, so try it in a rural area to prove to yourself the video link FPV range on your iPhone meets the promise. Alway make sure you calibrate the compass at a new flying location. Automatic wind-drift holds camera in one location for great shots, but as soon as you push the control stick the wind correction software gives you complete control. If you are close to an obstacle or tree, expect the wind to drift it into trouble causing you some very expensive damage, and so far service parts are almost impossible to get.

    If you want to go straight ahead in a cross wind, you have to apply your own wind drift correction or it will drift into obstacles, buildings or people. You have to fly safe, stay below 400 feet, and respect people's privacy or you will get yelled at, arrested, fined or a bloody nose.

    Most people stop trying to land it in the wind, and just hover it at 5 or 6 feet, walk over and grab the landing gear and shut it down, avoiding the tip over, prop damage when it is drifting sideways during the landing.

    This is a great package for an excellent value price. The software and features are amazing in my opinion. I am a pilot, electrical engineer, ham operator and RC hobby pilot. This product is easier to fly than any quad copter or RC plane.

    To get the best videos, stop flying while recording. Slow down pans to painfully slow, or the video will be panning way too fast. Keep speeds very slow if you expect the video to be enjoyable to watch. Fast flying, quick, dizzying spins make for terrible videos. Let the camera be stationary and the action in the video create the "movement". Cars moving, people moving, birds flying, trees waving, those prove it is a video. Few quality videographers would move, pan or zoom their camera unless they are tracking a moving obstacle. Flying beside a car, boat or bike make better shots that flying over things too fast. Make super slow moves if you expect people to enjoy the video. With the wide field of view your audience has a lot to take in, so keep the panning and motion to a minimum and viewers will be more impressed.

    Read the instructions, be smart, safe and courteous. You have tremendous liability if you screw up including "manslaughter" if you take down a plane full of people. Some web videos posted flights out of sight to 2,500 feet, which should cost the pilot $10,000 and the FAA is issuing such fines when the see those and find out who did it.

    I'm very surprised by all the positive reviews. Maybe my unit was a dud, or maybe others have very low expectations. I returned mine because of 2 serious problems:
    1. The auto-exposure ajustments are stepped! This makes recorded footage unsuable for professional use any time there's a slight shift in lighting and the camera does an auto compensation. There's no manual exposure mode to avoid this problem.
    2. The image is either way too sharp, or so soft it looks out of focus. The camera's settings allow you to set the sharpness level. Standard sharpness is so overly sharp that it looks horrible any time you have parallel lines, such as in buildings or bricks. The low sharpness level leaves the picture looking out of focus beyond repair in post.

    What DJI needs to do is provide a quadcopter with the Vision's integrated video transmition, but for use with a GoPro Hero 3+ Black camera, which doesn't have the problems mentioned above. For now, I'll keep using my Phantom 2 with GoPro, which I also bought from B&H. 1 star for the Vision. 5 stars as always for B&H that makes returns so easy!

      Comments about DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter with Gimbal-Stabilized 14MP, 1080p Camera:

      I purchased the Phantom Vision 2+ as an alternative to our company hiring an helicopter/aerial photographer for new building photos. The examples of photos and video online made me confident that the Phantom could do the job and be a great addition to our communications equipment. I recommend purchasing the Phantom with the B & H kit which includes an additional battery, hard case with custom foam insert and 32GB memory card. Even unpacking the Phantom is an incredible experience. You know immediately you've made the right choice as it is a well built, quality machine. I had read previously that this is not a toy. No truer statement can be made. Preparation in the form of reading the manual and viewing tutorials will help you develop the appropriate respect for the safe operation of the Phantom. It exceeds all expectations for a first time RC photo drone buyer. Easy to learn precision flying, intuitive app/software, hi def photos & videos are just a few of the strengths. Some areas that can use improvement include the relatively short battery life and occasional signal loss during flight. Overall, it inspires and amazes me and all those who gaze upon it. And yes, it can also be a bit frightening. The Phantom lifts vertically into the sky, launching like a rocket. Soon, it becomes a speck - suddenly it's gone. A leap of faith and the camera feed on your smart phone through the DJI Vision app are the only evidence it is UP there. Now you can make out the patch of grass you are standing on a thousand feet below. Tilt the gimbal slightly and you're viewing the horizon mies away. Back on Earth, media content is easily uploaded to your laptop or smartphone. Then, after packing it away, the feeling of anticipation . . . looking forward to the next flight.

            I just upgraded from the Phantom to the Phantom 2 Vision + and the improvement in video stability is amazing. I think the basic Phantom is a great quadcopter to start with but for me the Phantom 2 Vision + is worth the difference. You get better video stability, first person view from an IPAD, battery that plugs in without cable connections, and an integrated camera with a USB connection. The visibility that the IPAD gives you not only allows you to see what you are shooting but greatly reduces your risk of losing or crashing the quadcopter.
            I can see that the camera does not have the color depth or dynamic range of the GoPro but it does have a higher resolution. I'm very satisfied with the videos taken with the integrated DJI camera.
            This was my seventh purchase from B&H and my experience has always been good. Their customer service is great!

                Outstanding! Easy to fly with or without GPS.
                Very useful toy....I mean tool. If your going to fly an RC craft might as well make it this one.
                Just spend the money and get it already! You won't be disappointed. It only detects 4 GPS sats while on the ground at my house because of trees but once I get about 50 feet up, it then gets 6 or more gps sats. So I can hover steady while taking pics. Glad I made this purchase, It has been a blast. Shipping was fast and packaging was ecellent.

                  Simple and ready to go. The Phantom has many features built in that assist in flight. One can spend more time on getting great images and not flight while the Phantom holds is position. Following the book and all flight rules is must.

                  Great RTF system out of the box

                  I originally had planned in getting the original Phantom a year or two back, but the way things worked I am glad I waited. I bought this just after the price drop. Out of the box there was minimal assembly and setup to get right to flying. I have RC flight experience but I am a bit rusty. This is very easy to fly even for a novice, as long as they do not go crazy. Some information I had to find in videos online that I could not find in the instructions.It takes great pictures and video. I would recommend this for anyone wanting this type of product with a camera.Only note, and is not direct to this product, but related, sometimes in the brightness of the day it is hard to see your camera view on your cellphone due to the glare. This makes it difficult if you are flying out of visual range. I had to build a small hood over my phone screen to block the glare.Get one, they are fun! B&H processed and shipped my order quickly and I had it in just a couple days.

                  The Phantom 2 Vision + is an awesome machine! I've had the first generation Phantom so I already know how to fly. The Vision is a lot more stable and the video is amazing! I would recommend to anyone, beginners or advanced!

                  What a fun bird to fly and take videos

                      The Phantom Vision+ is probably the best multi-rotor for under $2,000 that has easy-to-fly handling plus superb stabilized HD video. You'll be amazed at how good the video looks, and then you realize how much the Phantom is pitching and rolling and getting buffeted by the wind and it makes you really appreciate how well that 3-axis gimbal is working to deliver the stabilized video to your eyeballs.When you fly in GPS mode, the Phantom is practically "dummy-proof". I had my 7 yr. old nephew flying this thing within 3 minutes after giving him a brief tutorial on what the sticks do. If you get nervous, just release the sticks and it hovers in place while you figure out what you wanna do. The "Return-to-Home" feature is a MUST-HAVE and will bring that expensive toy back to you if it loses signal with the controller. However, it's still possible to crash this bird in a myriad of ways and damage the expensive camera gimbal so you need to commit yourself to reading the manual several times and watching a bunch of YouTube videos to learn everything about this amazing quadcopter and what it can do. Being a good Phantom pilot will enhance your enjoyment of it, and also provide greater safety to innocent bystanders who might be in it's flight path.There's obvious drawbacks as with any product. I wish the camera didnt have so much lens distortion, although there is a Photoshop profile to correct this in post. I also wish there was 20X optical zoom on the camera since I use this Phantom for scouting game before hunting season --- just can't hover down on a deer without scaring it away! I wish the FPV preview was in HD mode since you can't see fine details when you're flying FPV at 640x480 maximum resolution on your phone or tablet screen. Finally, it'd be nice if DJI designed this Phantom to be "mod-friendly" since it takes some handiwork and skill to add aftermarket long-range antennas to the existing controller and WiFi extender.

                          Comments about DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter with Gimbal-Stabilized 14MP, 1080p Camera:

                          I was excited to finally buy the DJI Phantom Vision+ after hearing the good things about it, so I decided to buy this bundle since it came with a hard case, extra battery, and 32 GB micro-SD card.

                          I had my doubts if the hard case was really worth it, but now I can't live without it. It's very durable and even makes a nice work platform when you're out in the field and need a place to put the Phantom when you're installing batteries, props, etc instead of resting it in the wet grass or mud. The case has room to store 4 batteries which allows for over an hour of flying time. There's some deep compartments to store the controller, extra props, and other accessories like antennas. The only drawbacks are that it doesn't have any way to lock it, and I also wish the pull-out tow handle was a little longer since I'm 6'3" and it's not quite long enough to make it comfortable pulling it behind you, although I usually just carry the case anyway.

                          I also didnt think I would need a large 32GB micro-SD card but it turns out a 15-minute flight can be an almost 2GB MP4 video file so it's nice to have the extra capacity in case I take a lot of flight videos.

                          I also bought this bundle because of B&H Photo's excellent reputation when it comes to customer service. I've heard stories they will replace a crashed Phantom or broken parts at no cost and you just can't beat that anywhere else on the whole Internet! I've been ordering from B&H for over 15 years and they ever fail to impress me with their dedication to satisfying customers.

As always, I trusted B&H with the purchase and they delivered a great product once again in a fast, secure manner. I use the drone at least 3 X weekly and it flies awesome and films incredibly! It is a super deal!

                                  I purchased the Phantom 2 Vision+ to see about getting into arial photography and this drone has not disappointed. It's amazingly simple to operate (compared to a small "trainer" drone I purchased for practice) and is the rarest of purchases now… it does what it says it will do. B&H delivered promptly and for free! I am overjoyed with the product, and having the tried and true professionalism from B&H made this a no-worry purchase. Thanks B&H!
