DJI GPS FPV Quadcopter Features
Read below to learn more about the features of this large quadcopter with camera for sale. There is also a FAQ section as well as a few videos so that you can find out even more. Of course, if you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at 541-205-6610.
Live Data and Video Telemetry:
See a live video stream of what your camera is looking at. Control camera tilt up and down and command the camera to take snap shots or record 1080 video. An artificial horizon and compass on the bottom left of the screen. As well as distance from takeoff point, altitude above ground, and current speed is displayed in real time on your screen.
25-30 Minute Flying Times:
The Phantom 2 Vision can fly for up to 25-30 minutes on a fully charged flight battery. Battery charge level is displayed in real time on the smart phone readout. We recommend not depleting the flight battery beyond 10-15% for battery health. LiPo batteries are sensitive to over discharging them.
GPS Precision Flying:
Flying your Phantom 2 Vision is easy with the help of GPS stabilization. Simply take your hands off the controls the Phantom 2 will maintain position, altitude, and heading. If radio contact is ever lost with the Vision 2 it will return home and land on autopilot!
Snap still photos and take videos in flight:
The Phantom 2 Vision can take high resolution photographs or 1080 HD video at the touch of a button. Full camera controls are included in the smart phone app. Note: The Vision does not shoot video and still photos at the same time.
Easy to fly, even for beginners:
Flying the Vision is easy in GPS mode. Simply let go of the controls and the Vision will literally "park" where it is in the sky. This gives you time to get your "bearings" and aids you in the event you get disoriented. The live video feed also helps with navigation.
Easy photo sharing with Vision App:
Share your photos easily on social media with the Vision app.
State of the Art Camera:
DJI Innovations in house designed camera has a 140 degree angle, records 1080p HD video at 30fs or 1080i at 60fs.
Free Firmware and App Upgrades:
Updates are always free from DJI. You can update your firmware on your Phantom Vision anytime there is a new release with free Naza software.
Additional Phantom Vision Information:
Not only does it inherit the trademark design excellence of the much loved Phantom, but also represents a breakthrough in the technology of aerial photography. The Phantom 2 Vision is a stronger, smarter aerial platform in every aspect.
Batteries with greater capacity, coupled with more efficient propellers design,mean a longer flight time and a more stable flight experience. The Phantom 2 Vision also comes equipped with a 14 Megapixel HD video camera of DJI’s own design, which can be easily controlled using the Apple IOS or Android APP. All of this together ensures an unmatched and incredible flying and recording experience.
The Phantom 2 Vision is the only quadcopter on the market to offer professional-level multi-rotor flight control technology, an intelligent GPS-based autopilot system, an integrated HD camera and an iOS app for full camera control. The Phantom 2 Vision also comes with a remote control unit containing pre-programmed autopilot parameters allowing pilots to switch between different flight modes to achieve particular flight experiences.
Also incorporated are safety parameters, such as a fail-safe feature that will bring the Phantom 2 Vision back to its take-off point and land itself if it loses signal from the remote control unit for any reason.
Attention Pilots Regarding High Speed Descents:
We have noticed when flying our Phantom 2 Vision that high speed vertical descents can cause instability and loss of control with the Vision aircraft. Most quad copters will begin to wobble if you are in a vertical descent and you drop altitude too fast. We recommend that you restrict your descent to a smooth slow rate, or descend while moving in any direction (relative to the ground) to avoid encountering prop turbulence which could cause instability.
DJI Phantom Vision FAQ:
Q: How far can the Vision fly away from the transmitter?
A: Live video feed range is around 1,000 feet during optimal conditions. Controller transmitter range is around 1500-2,000 feet in the USA. This is further away than you can see the Phantom.
Q: How long is the flight time on a battery charge and how long does the battery take to recharge?
A: Flight times of around 25 minutes and charge time is close to 2 hours.
Q: Can you update the firmware on board the Phantom Vision?
A: Yes with Naza assistant software on PC or Windows only.
Q: Are replacement parts available yet?
A: We have them on order and will list them here when available.
Q: What kind of smart phone do I need for use with the Vision?
A: You need a iPhone with at least iOS6 or Android operating system.
Q: Is there any image stabilization built in?
A: Not in the camera. However there is flight stabilization built into the quad copter that helps stabilize the images. You can also edit it in various image and video editing software.
Q: My Phantom 2 Vision makes a buzzing noise when it's on. Is this normal?
A: Yes. The internal flight control system makes a buzzing noise when it's powered on. This is normal.
Q: How low can I let my flight battery get and still be safe?
A: We recommend landing or flying close to the ground with less than 15% charge remaining. This is because the voltage can drop faster than you expect when your battery is this low. If the battery gets too low your Phantom Vision will loose power rapidly and you will most likely meet the ground much faster than you want.
Q: Should I discharge the battery once in a while to a lower amount to keep it healthy?
A: The owner's manual recommends every 20 cycles you discharge the battery to around 8%. We suggest using caution flying with the battery this low. It can drop in voltage without warning causing a loss in power and a hard crash and damage. LiPo batteries can have a steep voltage drop when they are low usually with no warning. Just like when flying a full scale aircraft you should leave yourself a reserve for safety.
