DJI Phantom 3 Standard review: A great entry-level drone if the price is right


DJI's ready-to-fly Phantom 3 Advanced and Professional camera drones are remarkably simple to operate, which makes them great for people entering the hobby. What's not so great: their prices.

The DJI Phantom 3 Standard is a ready-to-fly quadcopter with a built-in camera that captures good 2.7K-resolution video that's very stable thanks to an excellent integrated three-axis gimbal. It has the Intelligent Flight Modes found on the company's...

The camera can't be removed or upgraded; landing gear doesn't collapse and isn't easily removed for travel

For its $499 sale price, the DJI Phantom 3 Standard is the best beginner quadcopter you're going to find for the money. If and when the price jumps back to its original $799, the Standard will be a much tougher sell against DJI's other excellent models...

DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone review - a superior flying camera


The DJI Phantom 3 drone might look just like the previous model but it offers a vastly improved flying experience with the ability to capture even higher quality photographs and 4K video. The Phantom is the go-to drone for anyone thinking about buying...

The DJI Phantom 3 is a serious drone for serious users. This latest model has made it even easier to fly and is even more powerful as a photography tool. Unlike the other cheaper “toy” drones on the market, the DJI Phantom 3 can be flown with...

Extremely Disappointed with DJI


Extremely Disappointed with DJI Like another reviewer, everyone was lovely until it came to warranty repair. My Phantom 3 flew perfectly for the first 8 months. The problems began when I (mistakenly) upgraded the firmware while on holidays. The first...

Good drone for starter pro


It has fairly good camera, speed and battery life. There are several developers producing apps and software for it. It has capbility to accept codes for automatic usage. It is also very robust and after crashing it a few times it still works fine. It...

Leaves a lot to be desired


e the motors so that they would start up. After much correspondence it was agreed that I could return it, and if, there was a problem with it, they would again pay the freight. After 21 days they informed that it was in fact another “DUD” by this stage...

The Phantom is a great drone. Easy to fly. Great picture quality. It was reasonable value for money. Ive used it to assess work sites and take pictures of finished jobs. I haven't purchased any of the after market gear, but I should have bought a carry...

Absolutely perfect for the beginner who wants "hands free' flying and Full HD video/photos


sticks, wow. Then now using the joy sticks it brilliantly easy to fly higher and further but should I panic, I simply let go of the joy sticks and it stops, hovers and waits, wow. Should I worry I can just press return home and it will fly back to...
