Wish List: Quadcopters


In this video, John McQuiston, of KelbyOne, introduces us to three RC quadcopters that are sure to be top hits this holiday season. The first is the AR.Drone2.0 from Parrot, a smartphone-operated mini quad that demonstrates remarkable agility, able to perform flips at the press of a button. The next is the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+, which features an integrated 1080p video/14MP still camera that is stabilized by a three-axis gimbal for an all-in-one aerial video and photo solution. Finally, for those who already own a GoPro, is the Phantom 2, which is basically the Phantom 2 Vision+ sans camera. With the Phantom 2 it’s possible to mount the GoPro using a fixed amount, but ideally you'll want the Zenmuse H3-3D Gimbal to ensure really steady footage. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at B&H.com.




Can I use the DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter with Zenmuse H3-3D 3 Axis Gimbal whit the GoPro Camera HERO 4? Or I nerd to by a GoPro HERO 3+

The current versions of the GoPro are all compatible with the DJI Phantom 2 with the Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal.  That includes the GoPro Hero 4 Black and White editions but excludes the GoPro Hero (B&H # GOH) since that is not able to mount to the gimbal and have access to the USB connection.

is it possible to use DJI phantom2 in confine space like vessel or tank. is it possile to manufacturing company to make it intrinsically safe, so that i can use it in gas plant for the tanks

The Phantom 2 is too large to operate within the confines of a container.  It can be flown indoors however the GPS features will not be as accurate as flight outdoors where it can receive satellite location information.  If you have any more questions about a specific application please e-mail [email protected].

Hello, I have a  Go Pro Hero 3 +, my question is the following, that differentiates in quality, or technique, I have between using the one that brings 2 DJi vision +, and my own camera.

Hi Wilman -

Other then the GoPro's ability to shoot 4K, it's pretty much "even money" in terms of video quality.

Buy a Phantom 2 with the H3-3D gimbal and use yiurGoOro on it if you want professional results. The Vision camera is terrible and is geared only for the novise only. If you need FPV then also get the DJI Lightbridge... If you can afford it, or the more affortable AVL 58 with a wiring hub and the mini iOSD. Happy flying!
