DJI CP.PT.000084 Overview

  • 1Description

The Phantom 2 Vision+ v2.0 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

    DJI CP.PT.000084 Reviews

    Phantom 2 Vision+ v2.0 Quadcopter with Gimbal-Stabilized 14MP, 1080p Camera is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 272.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Quad & Camera, but issues with FPV I use it for AP, and overall, The Phantom Quad, gimbal and camera are very good. The Camera is just below the quality of a GoPro 3+ but still very good. The vision Smartphone App (at least current version at time of this review) needs some serious work. Live streaming video freezes' and pixelates at a very short distance (25-50 yards)and many other users seem to have similar problem as reported on discussion boards such as RCGroups.com and Phantompilots.com. Most feel the problem is with the current version of Vision App, not the firmware of the Phantom 2 vision+ .I would give the whole package a 4-5 star rating if the Vision App's video streaming range worked as well as advertised.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Manufacturer (DJI) isn't up to speed. Too delicate. It's as though you bought a fine camera, but the first time you bumped it on something, the components would break apart. I understand that this is a flying camera, and that flying -anything- requires a special degree of discipline, but let's face it, eventually you're going to land hard, or bump into something and when it drops to the ground, your 1300.00 investment will be worthless. Too bad DJI is so busy selling these things that they can't make replacement parts for less than the cost of an entirely new unit. DJI, instead of taking advantage of customers, should box replacement parts and fed ex them to customers for a very reasonable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment I have been watching the development of the DJI Phantom for a while after seeing it on the show floor at NAB a few years ago. The Vision Plus with included camera has nailed it. While we've only had it flying 6 times so far, operation has been flawless. It does what it says it will do. We are very excited about the video we're getting from this camera. Side by side it's much better than the GoPro. Setup was easy. I had some minor RC experience but found the learning curve on flying this just about right. We quickly started to fly and shoot at long range with turns about a point controlled. We did add the prop guards and recommend new flyers install them.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Gadget. Just make sure nothing goes wrong! While I would initially have rated this drone 5 stars, I no longer can, having experienced the joy of DJI's customer support. I asked for help on their online chat multiple times, but each time was told, in broken English, to hold on. After waiting 30 minutes once, and one hour the next time, I decided that I wasn't going to be getting any help. While the drone itself is very easy to fly and use, the fact of the matter is that when you spend this kind of money on a gadget, you want to know that you can talk to someone should said gadget go wrong. This really is appalling for this kind of product, so I have to give it 1 star.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I searched around and found that b&h photo had the phantom 2 vision plus the cheapest. Shipping was fast. This thing is a blast. I use it all the time. The amount of uses for it are unlimited. Had some trouble with it not hovering in one spot at first (toilet bowl effect) and found that there was a firmware update to correct it. Downloaded the dji program on my computer and installed the firmware to the phantom. No more problems. Camera shoots pretty good quality HD and is amazingly smooth with the gimbal. I had never flown a quadcopter before this but have flown many rc planes. Took me a couple batteries to get used to it. Overall I am extremely happy with it.-------------

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So, So Easy to Fly I am a video nut. I love taking video, editing it and making DVDs. This Phantom Quadcopter was a venture into aerial video and photography. I was a bit worried about flying it as I never flew remote control aircraft before. I thought if I crash it, that is a lot of money down the drain. I was truly surprised at how very easy it is to fly. Let go of the sticks and it hovers in place. Lose power for fly too far away and the copter returns to its takeoff point and lands itself. I was amazed. The video and pictures are absolutely pristine and edit very easily in my software. I highly recommend this Quadcopter and B&H to make your purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I'm very impressed with the Vision+. It is very easy to learn how to fly and is very stable. The important thing to remember is to always follow the startup checklist, make sure you have good GPS lock (give it time to initialize and find at least 6 satellites). I was considering buying the Phantom 2 with GoPro but while trying to decide, the Vision + was announced. The GoPro camera might be slightly better but the Vision+ is a fully integrated platform with 3-axis gimbal and is ready to fly right out of the box. The instructions are good, but check out the setup and pre-flight video tutorials on the DJI site before trying to fly it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Machine Purchased the Phantom 2 Vision+ after a lot of research on similar products including the Phantom FC40 and Phantom 2 Vision. The Vision+ had the best bang for the buck and absolutely delivered when it arrived. Very easy to fly, amazing image quality and high quality product.My advice:1) But a Blade Nano READY TO FLY (NOT BIND AND FLY) to learn the basics of radio control flight if you are brand new2) Read the instructions carefully, download all of the software and update the aircraft and controller immediately3) Follow instructions for calibrating compass and take your first flight in a BIG field.
