DJI Phantom 3 Standard review

 

The budget Phantom camera drone jettisons some functionality, but its core greatness remains

Maintains many of its pricier brethren’s abilities ; Easy to fly ; Superb photo and video quality

Limited range compared to other Phantom 3 drones ; Simplified controller

Pretty fly for a cheap DJI

DJI Phantom 3 Standard review

 

DJI's new quadcopter makes high quality aerial footage both accessible and affordable

Value for money ; Great for those just starting out ; Simple design and operation ; Easy to fly

Uses Wi-Fi rather than Lightbridge ; Lacks the positioning cameras of the Advanced and Pro

If you were thinking about getting the Phantom 3 Pro or Advanced but were put off by the price, then the Phantom 3 Standard should make your mind up once and for all! It's affordable, easy to fly and has a good camera.

DJI Phantom 3 Standard review

 

A much more affordable Phantom 3, the Standard is an ideal quadcopter for beginners and has some great features, as well as a great camera. Here's our DJI Phantom 3 Standard review.

The intelligent flying modes may not be the easiest to use, but they do allow you to get smooth shots that would be near impossible with a Phantom 2. The Go app is also a huge improvement, but the biggest gains are crucially in photo and video quality....

DJI Phantom 3 Standard review

 

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 Standard

 

The DJI Phantom 3 Standard delivers the safety, reliability, and video quality you expect from a Phantom at a price that appeals to entry-level pilots.

Very stable in the air. Easy to fly. Smooth 2.7K video capture. 20mm wide-angle lens. Raw and JPG still capture. Relatively affordable. Built-in GPS. Return-to-home function. Automated takeoff and landing.

Propellers intrude into footage. Battery requires more than an hour to recharge. Requires Android or iOS device.

Conclusions You're not going to find a better drone for $500 than the Phantom 3 Standard. It delivers the stability, reliability, and safety features that you expect from a Phantom, and all of the same automated flight modes as its more expensive...

DJI Phantom 3 4K

 

The Phantom 3 4K captures stable ultra high-definition video from the air and includes all of the safety features you expect from a DJI drone.

Very stable in the air. Easy to fly. Smooth 4K video capture. 20mm wide-angle lens. Raw and JPG still capture. 22-minute flight time. Built-in GPS. Return-to-home function. Automated takeoff and landing. Attractive price.

Limited operating range. Propellers intrude into footage. Battery requires more than an hour to recharge. Requires Android or iOS device.

Conclusions The DJI Phantom 3 4K is the least expensive option for potential drone buyers who want to take advantage of the resolution benefits delivered by the 4K format, but don't want to break the bank. It offers the benefits you get from a Phantom,...

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

 

The Standard is easy to recommend as an entry-level camera drone, and it's also an outstanding deal at its current $499 (£449 and AU$859) price.

DJI Phantom 3 Professional review: A simple drone that shoots gorgeous 4K video

 

With 4K video and easy to learn controls, the DJI Phantom 3 Professional makes a good case for being the go-to drone for serious aerial photographers.

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional is easy to set up, simple to fly and its stabilised camera shoots beautiful 4K footage.

The Phantom 3 Pro isn't cheap, and it's hard to distinguish 4K footage from 1080p. Buying spare batteries, which each manage only 20 minutes of flight time, adds even more cost.

With its simple operation and great image quality, the DJI Phantom 3 Professional is one of the best ways to get into aerial videography.
