I got a DJI Phantom 3 Standard as a present for my 36th and so far I’m more than impressed with the purchase. The drone takes off like a rocket, has a very good range and beyond excellent gimbal stabilisation. No matter how much I tried to thrash it, the video is perfectly stabilised.
The safety features are even more impressive – if it happens that you lose the connection to the drone it will automatically land itself where it took off, so you really need to try hard to lose it.
Here is some sample footage I have taken so far.
Bear in mind that I have had my drone for a week and it’s January, so flying a drone is a bit tricky right now here in the UK.
