HOW DJI HAS RAISED THE BAR IN UAV SYSTEMS WITH THE DJI PHANTOM VISION RC QUADCOPTER


Drones have become huge news in recent times. With the stark lack of legalities to govern (and put caps on) their use, flying them around is a thing of unlimited pleasure. What is more, they also have an array of commercial applications which they can execute.  This article focuses on the DJI phantom vision RC quadcopter, made by DJI.

DJI is a manufacturing company that specializes in UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) flight control systems with the occasional unmanned aerial vehicle. However, the agenda behind building these vehicles is rooted in constructive activity. These vehicles, inclusive of the phantom vision RC quadcopter are built with aerial photography in mind.

DJI Phantom Vision Quadcopter

The phantom vision quadcopter is the only one of its kind on the market that offers multi-rotor flight control that is of a professional level. In a sense, this elevates it from the class of toys. It also offers a very intelligent autopilot system that is GPS-based, a well integrated HD camera and an app (it is iOS based) for full camera control. This points out the fact that the iPhone and iPad may be used to fly the inbuilt cameras on the quadcopter. It also comes with a remote control unit that has autopilot parameters that are pre-programmed and fed into it. This serves to allow the pilot to switch between various flight modes, altering the flight experience and making it infinitely better.

They over-deliver on the safety front too: this machine comes with a failsafe feature that serves to bring the Phantom vision RC back to its point of takeoff and land all by itself, if the signal from the remote control is interfered with in any way.

One of the big selling features of the DJI phantom vision RC quadcopter has undoubtedly been the included mount for the GoPro Hero actioncam. The only con to this is that the mount has a tendency to allow vibrations to travel via the mount to the camera, leading to distorted images as a result. For those who prefer technical terms, this is referred to as the jell-O effect. At least this used to be the case, DJI have overcome this problem in the Phantom Vision by building into their very own camera and gimble which is controlled by your iPhone.  The Phantom vision may be described by many as a recent edition of the phantom they already are familiar with, but it comes with a 1080p video camera which has the capacity of nabbing 14 megapixel stills. The iDevice that runs the DJI application allows the pilot to view all the output from the camera, control its functions and tilt it either upwards or downwards by use of an integrated motor. An SD card is aboard for the storage of formats and media.DJI Phanton Vision Camera Control
The DJI phantom vision RC quadcopter has a plethora of pros to it. With its tough construction, basic assembly, GPS-enabled holding of position and integrated GoPro point of attachment, it is every drone flyer's dream. Add in intelligent orientation control and actual physical control joysticks (as opposed to the inconvenient touch screen sliders) and you have a machine that offers an experience that is rare and out of this world. To add to the material present regarding its integrated GPS, this quadcopter, while in flight mode, actually locates itself in space via a number of GPS satellites. One may imagine the stability this injects into the characteristics of flight.

This little machine has racked up a reputation of flying for long distances at lofty speeds. This particular model has a penchant for speed. DJI has listed its top flight velocity at a solid ten meters per second or approximately 22 miles an hour. Maximum range of operation has been listed at three hundred meters (or three football fields), which is sufficient, by the way, for it to leave the line of sight that FAA demands be maintained at all times. FAA has also put down the stipulation that the model be kept below 400 feet. The information regarding how high it goes is unavailable thus (the law abiding citizen writing the article wouldn't know) but suffice to say, it really flies high.

DJI Phantom Vision Controller
Whether it is to be used for fun activities like flying it around, or for capturing aerial photos, the DJI Phantom vision RC quadcopter is the perfect model. It should be availabe for just under 1000 dollars, an amount that makes sense given the integration of the 1080p video camera.

The DJI Phantom Vision is now available here with a $200 discount!
