Description

The DJI Phantom Quad copter with Go Pro Mount Version 1.1.1 is a quad-rotor RC helicopter that acts as an aerial platform for a Go Pro HERO action camera. This product will appeal to a variety of potential users, from RC aircraft hobbyists seeking the ability to mount a camera so they can record their flights, to videographers and photographers looking to open up a whole new range of shooting possibilities. Version 1.1.1 of The DJI Phantom adds a number of small upgrades over previous versions for easier set-up and more-reliable performance. New, Self Tightening propeller blades make set-up easy and protect against loose propeller blades causing in-flight vibrations. New Dual Receivers in the Phantom 1.1.1 and a new transmitter with an upgraded circuit board help increase the Phantoms operating range and help protect against wireless interference. And the new Naza-M V2 GPS autopilot software has better control and more accurate GPS stabilization. The Phantom can achieve a maximum horizontal flight speed of 33 ft./s and can ascend and descend at up to 20 ft./s. It comes with 2.4GHz Transmitter (TX) that features an operational range of up to 984' line-of-sight. The controller draws power from readily available AA batteries. Please note that many Wi-Fi systems, including the Wi-Fi used on Go Pro HERO cameras, also operate on 2.4GHz and may interfere with the transmitter. Take care to ensure the Go Pro' s Wi-Fi is turned off with operating this quad copter.

abunda_amazon_reviews Ordered and received this item in August of 2015. Since that time I had flown it approximately 30-40 times. Loved it at first. Bought prop guards, extra props, batteries, motors and go pro. Loved this thing, until yesterday. My phantom had been loaded with all the latest software and calibrated before every flight. Yesterday was no different. The phantom indicated it had all gps signals locked. I took off and hovered for about 20 seconds as I always do to ensure the home lock is set. I took off straight up and as the phantom began to turn right, it developed a mind of its own. I completely took hands off the remote and it continued on its path. I switched to home lock mode and it would not return. I had absolutely no control over the drone at all. I even tried turning off the remote, but the home function would not work. The worst part is my kids got to watch this happen and they loved that thing. After a full day and night of searching, it is gone. Having read a lot more posts now, it almost seems these have a design flaw to do just this sort of thing after so many flights. It sucks watching your money fly away with no recourse. I would have contacted DJI, but based on reviews, their customer service is terrible. Hopefully Amazon can make this right for me.;;June 23, 2016;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Buyer beware on DJI drones. (Watched my money fly away);;John;;;Very pleased with this purchase, as always package arrived on time with no damage. I also had a couple questions from this vendor and they were very prompt in responding and providing meaningful responses. This is the latest version of the Original Phantom 1 drone (Version 1.1.1) and has several upgrades compared to the previous version such as New Controller NAZA-M V2, New Self Tightening Propellers, Dual Antennas and Gimbal Pan / Tilt Control at the bottom of the remote. Great Drone to learn on and still be able to upgrade if you want additional features. If you are interested in some of the additional features I looked into and lessons learned here is my input. One of the first feature I wanted to add has a Gimbal to keep the camera level regardless of the wind conditions and left / right maneuvers which result in a tiling of the horizon in the background. Word of advice there are many Gimbals out there and unless you are willing to spend $300 plus you will end up with some YouTube video searching as most of the Gimbals in the $50 range offer little documentation and no support that is helpful. I learned that the hard way. Also keep in mind if you get an entry level Gimbal they are very heavy and will impact the way the drone can maneuver and the flight time will be reduced. My final choice was not the $ 300 plus range Gimbal but a $ 80 Gimbal from Walkera G-2D 2 Axis Brushless. It made out out light weight plastic and weighs half of the $ 50 range Gimbals.The $ 50 Gimbals all have wires exposed that to the motors and get in the way of the motor movement. One YouTube, I found that many people have to make all sort of modifications to make them work correctly . The Walkera model has no exposed wires and setup adjustments (leveling Gimbal if needed) are done via inserting a small screwdriver into a connection on the board. Very easy to do as the other Gimbals I tried you either have to calibrate via your USB cable and run the needed software or press a little button on the board 3 time and hold the Gimbal in place horizontally. That a cool fast feature but I found ti difficult to get the 3 other Gimbals I tried to get into that setup mode and then to actually keep the setting was not easily done as the Gimble always tended to make a small adjustment after and ended up not being adjusted properly. Making the adjustments via screw drive provide me with a perfect result every time. Hopefully this will give you a little guideanse on your Gimbal purchase. Also added propeller guards, just keep in mind the more you add the more weight and the less fight time. The guards from DJI are great but if you have a case for your drone it won't fit most likely anymore and its a pain to take off the guards every time. I then got the guards that you can slide in and not have to screw on which worked really good but were very heavy and between the Gimbal and Guards the Phantom would not keep its height and was sinking, so I had to keep applying power to keep the drone at the same height, which was a pain and a huge drain on the battery. (Note: This issue was only with my original $ 50 Chinese metal Gimble not the G-2D Plastic Gimble) Last item to share is that be VERY CAREFUL WHEN YOU add PROPELLER GUARDS. If you use the wrong screws you will penetrate into the back of the motor and short the motor out and possible the ESC board as well. That is A VERY EXPENSIVE MISTAKE TO MAKE, unfortunately I have a friend help me with putting on the Propeller Guards before flight and he ended up using screws that were just a little to long. End result the Phantom propeller would not spin up and smoke came up within seconds of applying power. Big stupid mistake that I want to share with you as the cost of the motor is around $20 to $25 and the ESC about the same price. In my case all four motors and ESC boards were a total loss. You are looking at a minimum of $ 200 in parts. Mine ended up costing $ 246 after tax and shipping charges were taking into account and I decided NOT to order the parts and just order a second Phantom since they run around $ 350. By adding another $ 100 to my stupid mistake, at l least I will have spare parts. If you look at the individual pricing of parts it is in my option cheaper in the long run to just buy a new Phantom 1 for spare parts. I would say that the design of the motor for the Phantom 1 is poor, it is a easy fix to weld the inside of the motor so a screw cant damage the motor. If you look on YouTube there are countless people that have run into the same issue. I don't know if the newer Phantoms have addressed this but it sure is a big disappointment this is not addressed on the Phantom 1. Overall I am very happy with the Drone (minus my mistake) and this seller does provide you with the latest version of the Phantom 1, so do keep an eye out for that to make sure you get all the upgrades that are part of version 1.1.1. I'm by no means an expert at this as this is a new hobby for me just simply sharing my experiences. Enjoy, fly safe and courteous.;;May 19, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great starter Drone with ability to grow with you as you want to add additional features.;;Dino Dean;;;So much fun. More power then i thought it was going to have, much more durable then i thought, very responsive controls, i get around 11-13 minutes of flight time, doesn't sound like much but this thing can cover a lot of ground in that time. I have painfully crashed it against a wood pole, and a metal pool heater before hitting concrete, checked to see if props were tight, turned it on and let it idle for about 20 seconds, everything sounded fine and the drone still fly's like its supposed to, the props didn't even break! All these people saying this props are fragile must be crashing it into everything in sight. It also seems its pretty decently serviceable, most if not all parts can be replaced if broken with little electronic experience. I recommend getting the prop guards. They don't interfere with flight mechanics all that much, and will protect your drone from extended damage as well as protect others from the spinning props. Also, buy extra batteries! Very happy with my purchase overall. i use a GoPro Hero 3+ attached with the waterproof case. I took some screen grabs from a video i took on my first couple flights. It can go up WAY higher than whats seen in my pics.;;May 25, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Most fun i have had in a long time. Worth every penny.;;Andrew Givens;;;I am going to leave the technical portion of the review to those that know more about drone. I will instead focus on the simplicity and fun portion! I purchased this for my 15 year old son. He had his laptop out and watched all the videos on their website. He assembled it by himself and it was perfect. (You might want to start charging the battery first!! Waiting the hour seemed like forever! ) Prior to this, he has only flown the Hubsan H107C. I know that the Hubsan gave him a foundation for flying and the basic skills before he took to the sky with the DJI! We upgraded because he really wanted to use his GoPro. His first flight was flawless - it took a couple minutes for the controller and drone to recognize each other, but that was a short wait. He kept it low and close until he got the hang of the controller. Can I insert a WOW right here? WOW. He hit the "Return to Home" (RTH) button and you could see the drone stop, think and return.....hover overhead and then slowly begin coming down. Hints and tips for a 1st time user: Definitely WATCH the videos and read the advice of others in these reviews. You will learn something for sure! Buy an extra battery and extra props! It does come with extra props, but I have a feeling we will need more! We absolutely LOVE the DJI Phantom and look forward to owning future releases down the road!;;April 14, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Easy enough for a 15 year old to assemble and fly - 1 - 2 - 3 !;;Olivia

One of the first feature I wanted to add has a Gimbal to keep the camera level regardless of the wind conditions and left / right maneuvers which result in a tiling of the horizon in the background. Word of advice there are many Gimbals out there and unless you are willing to spend $300 plus you will end up with some YouTube video searching as most of the Gimbals in the $50 range offer little documentation and no support that is helpful. I learned that the hard way. Also keep in mind if you get an entry level Gimbal they are very heavy and will impact the way the drone can maneuver and the flight time will be reduced. My final choice was not the $ 300 plus range Gimbal but a $ 80 Gimbal from Walkera G-2D 2 Axis Brushless. It made out out light weight plastic and weighs half of the $ 50 range Gimbals.The $ 50 Gimbals all have wires exposed that to the motors and get in the way of the motor movement. One YouTube, I found that many people have to make all sort of modifications to make them work correctly . The Walkera model has no exposed wires and setup adjustments (leveling Gimbal if needed) are done via inserting a small screwdriver into a connection on the board. Very easy to do as the other Gimbals I tried you either have to calibrate via your USB cable and run the needed software or press a little button on the board 3 time and hold the Gimbal in place horizontally. That a cool fast feature but I found ti difficult to get the 3 other Gimbals I tried to get into that setup mode and then to actually keep the setting was not easily done as the Gimble always tended to make a small adjustment after and ended up not being adjusted properly. Making the adjustments via screw drive provide me with a perfect result every time. Hopefully this will give you a little guideanse on your Gimbal purchase. Also added propeller guards, just keep in mind the more you add the more weight and the less fight time. The guards from DJI are great but if you have a case for your drone it won't fit most likely anymore and its a pain to take off the guards every time. I then got the guards that you can slide in and not have to screw on which worked really good but were very heavy and between the Gimbal and Guards the Phantom would not keep its height and was sinking, so I had to keep applying power to keep the drone at the same height, which was a pain and a huge drain on the battery. (Note: This issue was only with my original $ 50 Chinese metal Gimble not the G-2D Plastic Gimble) Last item to share is that be VERY CAREFUL WHEN YOU add PROPELLER GUARDS. If you use the wrong screws you will penetrate into the back of the motor and short the motor out and possible the ESC board as well. That is A VERY EXPENSIVE MISTAKE TO MAKE, unfortunately I have a friend help me with putting on the Propeller Guards before flight and he ended up using screws that were just a little to long. End result the Phantom propeller would not spin up and smoke came up within seconds of applying power. Big stupid mistake that I want to share with you as the cost of the motor is around $20 to $25 and the ESC about the same price. In my case all four motors and ESC boards were a total loss. You are looking at a minimum of $ 200 in parts. Mine ended up costing $ 246 after tax and shipping charges were taking into account and I decided NOT to order the parts and just order a second Phantom since they run around $ 350. By adding another $ 100 to my stupid mistake, at l least I will have spare parts. If you look at the individual pricing of parts it is in my option cheaper in the long run to just buy a new Phantom 1 for spare parts. I would say that the design of the motor for the Phantom 1 is poor, it is a easy fix to weld the inside of the motor so a screw cant damage the motor. If you look on YouTube there are countless people that have run into the same issue. I don't know if the newer Phantoms have addressed this but it sure is a big disappointment this is not addressed on the Phantom 1. Overall I am very happy with the Drone (minus my mistake) and this seller does provide you with the latest version of the Phantom 1, so do keep an eye out for that to make sure you get all the upgrades that are part of version 1.1.1. I'm by no means an expert at this as this is a new hobby for me just simply sharing my experiences. Enjoy, fly safe and courteous.

Most fun i have had in a long time. Worth every penny.
So much fun. More power then i thought it was going to have, much more durable then i thought, very responsive controls, i get around 11-13 minutes of flight time, doesn't sound like much but this thing can cover a lot of ground in that time. I have painfully crashed it against a wood pole, and a metal pool heater before hitting concrete, checked to see if props were tight, turned it on and let it idle for about 20 seconds, everything sounded fine and the drone still fly's like its supposed to, the props didn't even break! All these people saying this props are fragile must be crashing it into everything in sight. It also seems its pretty decently serviceable, most if not all parts can be replaced if broken with little electronic experience. I recommend getting the prop guards. They don't interfere with flight mechanics all that much, and will protect your drone from extended damage as well as protect others from the spinning props. Also, buy extra batteries! Very happy with my purchase overall. i use a GoPro Hero 3+ attached with the waterproof case. I took some screen grabs from a video i took on my first couple flights. It can go up WAY higher than whats seen in my pics.

Easy enough for a 15 year old to assemble and fly - 1 - 2 - 3 !
I am going to leave the technical portion of the review to those that know more about drone. I will instead focus on the simplicity and fun portion! I purchased this for my 15 year old son. He had his laptop out and watched all the videos on their website. He assembled it by himself and it was perfect. (You might want to start charging the battery first!! Waiting the hour seemed like forever! ) Prior to this, he has only flown the Hubsan H107C. I know that the Hubsan gave him a foundation for flying and the basic skills before he took to the sky with the DJI! We upgraded because he really wanted to use his GoPro. His first flight was flawless - it took a couple minutes for the controller and drone to recognize each other, but that was a short wait. He kept it low and close until he got the hang of the controller. Can I insert a WOW right here? WOW. He hit the "Return to Home" (RTH) button and you could see the drone stop, think and return.....hover overhead and then slowly begin coming down. Hints and tips for a 1st time user: Definitely WATCH the videos and read the advice of others in these reviews. You will learn something for sure! Buy an extra battery and extra props! It does come with extra props, but I have a feeling we will need more! We absolutely LOVE the DJI Phantom and look forward to owning future releases down the road!
