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.
Never lose track of your Phantom 3. GPS andGLONASS combine to make the Phantom 3 completely aware of its location andrelation to you. It hovers more precisely, moves more accurately, and locksonto satellites faster. Through theDJI Go app, you can track its location on a live map, and record yourtakeoff point so you can bring it back to you with the tap of a finger.
VISION POSITIONING SYSTEM
Your Phantom 3 literally helps you fly. It processes information from every sensor and completes complex calculations in real time, giving you a worry-free flight experience
Automatic Flight Logs
Your Phantom 3 automatically logs and remembers the details of every flight you take. Complete flight route, flight time, flight distance, flight location, and cached versions of any photos and videos you took during your flight are at your fingertips for future reference. At the same time, an advanced flight recorder constantly records data from all of your Phantom 3’s internal mechanisms, which can be easily shared with the DJI support team if you ever have any questions or issues.
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 and bright LEDs that let you know the status and remaining power of your battery in real time. Your Phantom 3 continuously calculates its current distance from you and the amount of power needed to return, so you always know how long you can continue flying and when it is time to recharge.
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.
These powerful motors give you the ability to speed up, quickly increase or decrease altitude, and stop immediately. DJI’s powerful air braking mechanisms stop your Phantom 3 instantly , making it hover in place as soon as you release the control sticks. Aerodynamic self-tightening propellers boost thrust and stay firmly in place no matter how you fly.
Intelligent, Easy to Fly System
Your Phantom 3 literally helps you fly. It processes information from every sensor and completes complex calculations in real time, giving you a worry-free flight experience .
Follows your commands instantly
Orders your Phantom 3 to stop and hover in place when you release the control sticks
Allows customized control settings to fit your preferences
Enables your Phantom 3 to return to you whenever needed
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.
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.
Return to Home
Bringing your Phantom 3 back to you is as simple as pressing a button on the remote or within the Go app. Your system automatically remembers* the point at which it took off, and returns and lands safely at this point when you command it to Return to Home.
