Fly with ease:
As mentioned above the drone is pretty easy to fly thanks to DJI’s Intelligent System with automatic flight stabilisation technology. This entails auto take off and landing, using ultra sonic sensors, and if the creativity consumes you and your mind loses all sense of direction, keep calm and simply let go of the sticks causing the Phantom 3 hover quietly right where it is.
The drone also has a return-home button which, when pressed, will cause the craft to undertake the following steps:
- Phantom 3 will climb to 30m at its present position.
- It will fly directly back to your location (the home point – accurate to 6m).
- Once it reaches your location, it will hover and start to decent.
- The drone will auto land if you do not decide to take over.
The app works on either Android and IOS devices and gives you the ability to view live feed, map view, allows you to edit videos right on your device and all camera settings can be changed in flight.

The drone was determined to have a battery life (to 30%) of 15min in the Highveld and 18min in Coastal areas.
