The second version of DJI’s Phantom copter brings all of the perks the original boasted with, but brings it up to the next level. The Phantom 2 Vision features an integrated motorized HD camera that can be controlled remotely.
The Phantom 2 Vision+ has a camera with 3-axis stabilizer which makes the shot perfectly steady even in difficult conditions. What the Vision+ shares with the Vision are the very useful GPS-propelled position holding, great return-to-home feature, flight time of about 25 minutes from a single charge (both versions use lithium-polymer battery with the capacity of 5,200-mAh) and a possibility of real time viewing via Android or iOS mobile device connected using WiFi.
The onboard camera has the possibility of shooting at a resolution of 1080p at 30fps. It also provides 14MP still images.
A new feature is a system that enables the camera to stay steady even when the quadcopter is moving. This is done using automatic tilting and panning feature which allows for lack of unwanted movement in your recorded footage – a very useful thing in unpredictable weather conditions and direction-changing winds.
However, use of devices such as this one is forbidden in certain areas. This is why the latest firmware update brings the No Fly Zone feature which gives information when the quadcopter has entered a forbidden area.
The DJI Phantom 2 Vision quadcopter can be yours for just $978.95 on Amazon, which is a serious reduction in price from the original $1,399. watch video below
