This is the DJI Phantom 3 "Professional" Ready to Fly Quadcopter. This package includes a 4K UHD camera, LiPo flight battery and 3 axis gimbal. Take to the sky and capture your world in beautiful 4K resolution. The Phantom 3 is an easy to use, fully integrated package with an intelligent system that helps you fly. Its live HD feed streams directly from your camera, bringing you an immersive, vivid view of everything below. Adding a new dimension, automatic video editing software and livestreaming capabilities let you share what you see instantly.


  • Epic Aerial Video: Imagine amazing, immersive footage at your fingertips. Imagine capturing content fit for the big screen, with crisp images, beautiful resolution, and vivid colors. With an integrated, stabilized camera, your Phantom 3 brings your imagination to life. 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.
  • Professional Lens: The Phantom 3 Professional’s camera has an f/2.8 lens with a 94⁰ 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.
  • Stable Footage: When paired with DJI’s industry-standard gimbal stabilization technology, your camera is held perfectly stable no matter how you fly. This 3-axis gimbal makes complex shots and hovering for long exposure photos easy. Your camera is capturing smooth, stable footage throughout your entire flight, and the camera and gimbal are fully controllable by the included remote controller and dedicated DJI Pilot app.
  • Easy to Fly: Your Phantom 3 fits into your life and makes flying remarkably intuitive and easy. From takeoff to landing, it's completely under your control, responding to your commands while automatically handling the most complex aspects of safe, stable flight.
  • Powerful Mobile App: Complete power is at your fingertips. Control the camera and change flight settings, all from your mobile device. Plus:
    • Automatic video editor that helps piece together your best footage in seconds
    • Ability to livestream your flights to YouTube for all to see
    • Live map that tracks your Phantom 3 at all times
    • User-friendly interface for adjusting full camera and flight settings
    • And more...
  • Live HD View: Experience a new view of your world, over long distances and in real time. Simply connect your phone or tablet and you have a live 720p HD view of everything your camera sees as you fly. This immersive view streams to you in absolute clarity, enabling you to get that perfect shot and experience flying in a unique way. This live view is made possible by DJI Lightbridge technology that is used by professional cinematographers and photographers who demand only the best. Fly with this view, and feel what it's like to be above your world without ever leaving the ground.
  • Intelligent Battery: Higher voltage, more energy, and greater power combine to give you a vastly improved flight experience. This upgraded Intelligent Flight Battery has built-in sensors that let you know the status of your battery in real time, so you always know how long you can continue flying and when it’s time to recharge. Recharging is fast and easy, and the Phantom 3 Professional comes with an upgraded charger for substantially reduced charge times.
  • Complete Control: Keep your Phantom 3 fully under your command while accessing the most-used features right on the included remote controller. This crucial piece of your flight experience has been engineered specifically for flying camera platforms, making every flight easy, safe, and intuitive.
  • Unmatched Propulsion: Each motor has the power and precision needed to give you the best flight experience possible. Brushless motors work with lightning-fast ESCs to make your Phantom 3 fast, agile, and responsive.
  • Vision Positioning: Fly indoors, low to the ground, and in GPS-free areas with Vision Positioning technology. Visual and ultrasonic sensors scan the ground beneath your Phantom 3 for patterns, enabling it to identify its position and move accurately.
  • Worry-Free Autopilot: Automatic elements of your Phantom 3’s intelligent flight system help you fly and are available at the touch of a button.
    • Auto-Takeoff: With one tap in the DJI Pilot app, your Phantom 3 will turn on its motors and rise to a pre-set height. It will then hover perfectly in place until you direct it where to go.
    • Auto-Return Home: When GPS is available, your Phantom 3 remembers the exact spot that it took off from. Wherever your aircraft is flying, tap a button to have it return right back home.
    • Failsafe: If the Intelligent Flight Battery is running low, or if your Phantom 3 loses the connection with your remote controller for any reason, the aircraft will automatically return to the takeoff point and land safely.
  • SDK Development: Have an idea that requires a view from the sky? Develop your own app by using the DJI Software Development Kit. The Phantom 3 platform is fully open and allows you to program apps that:
  • Control the Camera: Take pictures, record video, and control camera tilt and settings, all based on your app’s needs.
  • Access Real-Time Footage: Record and analyze your Phantom 3’s live HD video stream. Use this real-time visual information to make your app more powerful and useful.
  • Gather Flight Data: Full flight telemetry, including the Phantom 3’s live altitude, speed, distance, and more, is available to your app.
  • Follow Me: Program your Phantom 3 to act as your own personal, flying film crew.
  • Ground Station: Set waypoints and assign automatic actions for your aircraft to follow.
  • Point of Interest: Select a location or object to focus on, and the Phantom 3 will continuously face it, no matter how you fly.
