This bundle from B&H is based on the DJI Phantom 1.1 Quadcopter and the GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition action camera. It features the Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal with required upgrade board and the AVL58 5.8 GHz Video Link Kit which both come preinstalled in-house by B&H technicians. In addition, the bundle features a 4" LCD field monitor for first-person view (FPV) monitoring, a spare 2200mAh LiPo flight battery which can also be used to power the monitor and wireless video receiver, and a water-tight hard case to store and transport the Phantom, GoPro, and all of their accessories.
The DJI Phantom Quadcopter is a four-rotor aerial platform designed to fly GoPro HERO camera's. For photography applications, to extend the battery life some may prefer to use the basic mount included with the Phantom; however for those shooting video, the only way to get truly stable aerial footage is to use the Zenmuse H3-D2 Gimbal featured in this bundle. The gimbal will also allow you to tilt the camera remotely using a lever that, as part of the installation, comes attached to the back of the Phantom Transmitter. The Transmitter has a range of up to 984' line-of-sight, depending on conditions.
For capturing video in the air, and relaying FPV images via the AVL58 wireless system, this bundle features the GoPro HERO3+ silver Edition action camera. The Silver Edition can capture 1080p video at up to 60 fps as well as take 10MP still photos in bursts up to 10 fps. It features an ultra-wide angle lens help ensure all of the action stays in shot, and records to a MicroSD memory card.
Because the GoPro's internal Wi-Fi system can interfere with the Phantom's receiver, the AVL58 5.8GHz wireless video kit is included as well as a 4" LCD monitor to view a live video feed on. The range of the wireless video system extends up to 3937', depending on conditions.
Finally, this bundle provides a spare 2200mAh LiPo battery for the Phantom or to power the monitor and a water-tight hardshell case to store everything in. The case is suitable for all of the accessories featured in this bundle, as well as the GoPro camera, spare GoPro batteries, and spare props.
