Phantom 3 Professional-Overview
This is the DJI Phantom 3 Professional Ready-to-Fly Quadcopter Drone Helicopter with Integrated 4K Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal System. The Phantom 3 is an easy to use, fully integrated package with an intelligent system that helps you fly. Even when flying up to 1.2 miles (2km)* away, built-in Lightbridge technology gives you complete control over your Phantom 3 and an immersive, live HD view of everything below. Now you can shoot fully-stabilized HD video from the sky, right out of the box! With a crystal-clear camera, real-time HD video display, and intuitive flight controls, what will you create?
Finally, a flying camera that packs years of experience in aerial imaging into one compact, easy to use system. With the Phantom 3 Professional, you’re shooting 4K video at up to 30 frames per second and capturing 12 megapixel photos that look crisper and cleaner than ever. An enhanced sensor gives you greater clarity, lower noise, and better pictures than any previous flying camera.
The Phantom 3 Professional’s camera has an f/2.8 lens with a 94 degree field of view, virtually eliminating the unwanted lens distortion common in other cameras not built to shoot from the air. Built from 9 separate elements, including two aspherical elements, that reduce weight and complexity without sacrificing image quality, this lens brings the brightest, truest colors to life.
3-Axis Gimbal for Stable Footage
Securing and stabilizing your camera in place is DJI’s trusted aerial stabilization technology. This 3-axis gimbal keeps your camera perfectly level in any flight conditions, resulting in beautiful, stable footage throughout every flight.
With sensitive control sticks, dedicated buttons, and an over 1.2 mile (2km)* range, your customizable Phantom 3 remote controller gives you a completely new way to fly and interact with your Phantom. Ergonomically built to fit perfectly in your hands, your remote gives you the confidence to fly the way you want.
Integrated DJI Lightbridge
Enabling the incredibly long range and live HD video stream from your camera, DJI Lightbridge is built into both the remote and the Phantom 3 itself. These two parts work in tandem to ensure a continuous link between you and your Phantom 3.
Powerful communication signals slice through most environmental interference, giving you precise, full control and information from the aircraft at amazing distances.
DJI Pilot App
Free to download and use with your Phantom 3, the DJI Pilot app puts complete control in your hands. With a simplified, more intuitive user interface and unmissable new features, the Pilot app is constantly updated to give you the best flight experience possible.
Quick Video Editor
Quickly create videos and share them instantly. DJI’s new Director software, a built-in video editor, allows you to choose the best moments from your flights and build a complete video with music, text, and more.
As you are flying, share the view with your friends and the world, live over YouTube. Now anyone can experience the joy of flight, and watch, comment and share your experience in near real time.
Interactive Flight Simulator
Practice flying and perfect your skills without going anywhere. The included flight simulator gives you the lifelike experience of flying your Phantom 3 and using the remote controller in a safe, controlled virtual environment. (Simulator function only available in the iOS version of the DJI Pilot app)
Support for New Users

Maintaining complete control and stability in the air is crucial to every successful flight. The Phantom 3 contains the best and newest DJI flight technology, giving you an enjoyable experience through full, automatic intelligent support. These systems help you fly better and safer, and are designed so that you never have to think about them at all.
Processing and analyzing flight data in real time takes serious power. The Main Controller is the control center of your Phantom 3. It collects data from the entire system, including motor speed, GPS location, your command inputs, and data from automatic sensors, and analyzes it all to tell your Phantom 3 exactly how to behave at any given moment.
Never lose track of your Phantom 3. GPS and GLONASS combine to make the Phantom 3 completely aware of its location and relation to you. It hovers more precisely, moves more accurately, and locks onto satellites faster. Through the DJI Pilot app, you can track its location on a live map, and record your takeoff point so you can bring it back to you with the tap of a finger.
Keeping your Phantom 3 stable and flying the way you want it to is the Inertial Measurement Unit. Inside is a 6-axis gyroscope and an accelerometer that records and relays even the smallest changes in tilt and movement. It is constantly at work, detecting the slightest changes and compensating for them automatically.
Motor speed is critical to flight, and each motor is managed individually by the Electronic Speed Controllers. ESCs not only relay vital motor speed information to the Main Controller, they also send commands back to the motors based on your input. This constant communication keeps your Phantom stable in flight, and also helps you achieve any flight movement, from gentle pans to rapid acceleration.
