5.0 out of 5 stars | Best drone for the money HANDS DOWN!!!
Best drone for short money. I had the p3 standard and it was good. But I crashed it from lousy camera quality visible on small iPhone. This drone though is way worth the extra 150.00. The camera is way better. Picture in screen is way better. Vps makes a difference, way more options with better controller. The standard controller is super cheap and basic. You are always messing with the phone screen which makes you lose flight time. All the features you have to mess with are on the new controller and also has two buttons you can designate for whatever you want. This drone is cheap and does nearly everything the p4 does. Other than obstacle avoidance. But those features are only on two modes. Beginner and one other. So you can't even use avoidance on follow me or other modes. So this drone has everything you need. Add a range extender and you have a top notch drone. I'd much rather crash this than a 1200 drone. This is the best deal going. Not one complaint here.

1.0 out of 5 stars | reliability
the Phantom 3 was a good first drone but firmware updates caused the drone to go rogue and it was lost at great expense after 3 years it was found on BLM Land, DJI kept saying when in went Rogue send it in and DJI Techs would look at it, DAH it went Rogue and was found 2 miles from my house after the controller disconnected and was accidently found by a neighbor this week and DJI say they won't even look at it … I want my money back $1100+ they don't back their defective products read all the mishaps with the drones above.

1.0 out of 5 stars | Super annoyed
I did a lot of research and decided this drone would be the best bet for me and my real estate business. Saved up, got it for my birthday and took it out to drive. Kept saying gimbal issue. It was INSANELY hot and making sounds like it was freezing up and trying to move everywhere all at once. I turned it off to let it cool down and have a break but same issues when I turned it back on later. After 2 days of me trying multiple times decided to return it and it cost me $58 in shipping. Very disappointed had high hopes for this drone.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Stacks up in Extreme Conditions!
The phantom offers very intuitive control (though it is sensitive, so make gentle adjustments). The quality of the 4k video is professional quality, especially when coupled with a set of filters. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the gryo stabilization to produce steady video results even in wind (although using the drone in high wind is not recommended). We actually used this unit on an expedition in the Arctic where equipment failure is a common occurrence. This was not the case with this state of the art tool, I HIGHLY recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars | Awesome!
Tried few of the $100 range drones and it was just a waste of time. If you can afford to go for Phantom 3 (or 4K version as I did) this is like comparing a 20 year old car from a junkyard to a new Ferrari. This drone is so easy to learn/navigate. Distance, speed and video quality is just amazing. I did not want to spend this much myself and only got it to confirm they all the same (maybe a bit better) but let me tell you - I was wrong! I am in love now and never returning this toy - it is my precious.

4.0 out of 5 stars | Great drone, horrible instructions
I've crashed mine 4 times now (my fault) and despite a few broken props it's still working great. My only complaint as others have noted is that the instructions that come with the unit are horrible, and that's why I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. You really need to watch a bunch of Youtube videos and I mean a bunch before you can even start flying this thing, let alone mastering more advanced tasks. That being said it's a quality machine, very well made.

1.0 out of 5 stars | Useless
Absolutely useless. Do not purchase a drone from this company. It’s a known issue it will go up in the air and take off. We have used only a few times and most of the times it ended up with hours of hunting for it. Don’t waste your money. Go with another company. We ran into someone who is familiar with this drone and said this is a known issue. After contacting the company with some hope of replacing with a working drone they said there were no issues. Buyers be ware. Don’t ware your money. I never write reviews but don’t want others to end up wasting their money as we have.

This drone is amazing. Shoots very usable quality video and is upgraded from the standard. It has boosted signal for the controller and vision positioning for shooting indoors. Outstanding drone....probably good for at least a few years. EXCELLENT VIDEO. The only thing different from the phatom 3 pro is the glonass...the pro can go further..this is a MUCH better deal. Thanks
