A 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal system come integrated with this no controller/charger version of the Phantom 3 Professional quadcopter from DJI. In addition to video, the camera is capable shooting up to 12MP still photos using JPEG or non-proprietary DNG RAW format.

Different gimbal settings allow the camera to lock onto a fixed subject, be moved manually using transmitter rotaries or the app, or to simply provide camera stabilization.

Note: This bundle does not include a radio controller (transmitter) or flight battery charger. These items are required before using. Please refer to the User Guide for details on binding the controller with the flight controller.

Phantom 3 Flight Control System

Main Controller

The burden of processing and analyzing flight data in real time it taken up by the Main Controller, the brains of the computerized flight control system. It collects data from the entire system, including motor speed, GPS location, your command inputs, and data from automatic sensors, and analyzes it all to tell your Phantom 3 exactly how to behave at any given moment

GPS Navigation

Because of the complexity associated with multi-rotor aircraft the Phantom 3 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 one of the GPS-assisted modes

IMU

The Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) uses a 6-axis gyroscope plus an accelerometer to keep track the slightest tilt or change in acceleration. This data is relayed to the Main Controller and used to help maintain a stable flight

ESCs

Four Electronic Speed Controllers (ESCs) not only relay vital motor speed information to the Main Controller, they also send commands back to the motors based on your input. This constant communication helps keeps your Phantom 3 stable in flight, and also helps you achieve any flight movement, from gentle pans to rapid acceleration

Vision Positioning System for Indoor Navigation

Vision Positioning System uses a specially designed camera as well as sonic waves to provide comparable stability function indoors or close to the ground as GPS does outdoors. This technology allows the Phantom 3 to hold its location, stop when the controls are released, and quickly respond to pilot commands even when GPS is unavailable

Auto-Takeoff

With one tap in the DJI Pilot app, the Phantom 3 will turn on its motors and raise to a pre-set height. It will then hover in place, completely motionless until you direct it where to go

Auto-Landing

When GPS is available, the Phantom 3 remembers the exact spot that it took off. Simply tap a button to have it return to the point from which it took off

Return to Home Failsafe

If the Quadcopter loses the signal from the controller for any reason or the battery starts to run low 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

On-Board 4K Camera

Up to 4K Video and 12MP Stills

The included camera system features video recording at up to 4K30 (4096 x 2160) in H.264 and also takes JPEG and DNG RAW photos at 12MP. The camera mounts via an integrated 3-axis gimbal that provides stabilization as well as pan and tilt control. Media is recorded internally to a microSD card

Video Resolutions and Frame Rates

DCI 4K (4096 x 2160): 24p, 25p
UHD 4K (3840 x 2160): 24p, 25p, 30p
1080p (1920 x 1080): 24p, 25p, 30p, 48p, 50p, 60p
720p (1280 x 720): 24p, 25p, 30p, 48p, 50p, 60p

94° Wide Angle Lens

The camera features a 94° angle-of-view lens, which is a narrower angle than a fisheye for less distortion while still being wide enough to enable capturing establishing shots. The lens features an f/2.8 aperture and is comprised of 9 elements, including an aspherical element

Integrated 3-Axis Gimbal

The gimbal provides stability by counteracting unwanted motion such as wind buffeting or vibration and also keeps the horizon level even as the quadcopter banks. Control dials on the separately available transmitter (radio controller) allow you to manually pan and tilt the camera

DJI Pilot App for Android and iOS

Camera Control and Live 720p Monitoring

View a live 720p HD image with the free Pilot mobile for Android or iOS mobile device. The app also enables 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. The mobile device tethers to the transmitter via USB (cable available separately). A wireless range of up to 1.2 miles line-of-sight is provided (depending on conditions)

In-App Editing and Upload

Once recorded, photos and video footage can be downloaded directly to the phone allowing them to be edited complete video with music, text, and more, and shared on Facebook, Instagram, or other social media networks - even while the Quadcopter is still in the air. If you have an Internet connection, you can even stream live to YouTube

Flight Simulator

The app isn't just for flying. A flight simulator allows you to get some practice in before taking to the skies. A flight log allows you to review all of your past flights, with the time, duration, and even photos and videos you took

question

Is this a new item. Why doesn't it have the controller and charger?
Asked by: Matthew V.
This item is for replacement of the drone. For example if your boss crashes it into smithereens, and you just need the drone with the camera replaced & the transmitter and charger are still functional.

question

what is the difference between lightbridge and ready to fly?
Asked by: Raviraj J.
Hello Raviraj. On this product page 'Ready to Fly' means the product includes a remote control - the other option given does not include the remote control or charger. Please refer to the 'In the Box' section to the right of the product page to see what is supplied with your purchase. Lightbridge on the 'Phantom 3 Professional' is the proprietary technology that facilitates communication between the remote control and the aircraft over long distances (maximum 3.1 miles/5 km) - the other selection box refers to the 'Phantom 3 4K' that does not have Lightbridge technology so has a much shorter communications distance between the remote control and aircraft (maximum 0.75 miles/1.2 km). Thanks.
