The new Phantom 2 have been released. What's new:
New Remote Control
The upgraded remote control comes with many new features. A gimbal control dial, trainer port, built-in rechargeable LiPo battery with a capacity of 2000mAh, battery level LED indicators and throttle locking feature that holds the throttle stick in place when descending are all included.
New motors, propellers, and ESCs combine to give you greater thrust and control than ever before. You can load more equipment on your Phantom, and achieve up to 200g/axis of extra thrust when using a 3S LiPo battery with this completely new system.
A new, anti-static compass has been developed, with a protective shell to help shield it in any flight conditions.
READY TO FLY
Now you can shoot fully stabilized video from the sky, right out of the box.
PRECISION FLIGHT AND STABLE HOVERING
An integrated GPS auto-pilot system that offers position holding, altitude lock and stable hovering allows you to focus attention to be focused on shooting.
AUTO RETURN-TO-HOME /ONE-KEY GO-HOME If the Phantom 2 and its controller are disconnected during flight, the system’s failsafe protection will activate, automatically telling and if the signal is good enough, the Phantom 2 to return home and land automatically.
You can also setup a One Key Go Home function to activate this feature manually.
INTELLIGENT, LONG LASTING BATTERY
The high capacity, high performance 5200mAh Lithium Polymer battery offers up to 25 minutes of flight time. It provides battery capacity data, over charge/discharge protection, as well as maintenance reminders making the battery extremely safe and reliable.
CREATE ASTONISHING AERIALS
The Phantom 2 is unbelievably easy to fly. Combined with smooth, stabilized footage from the H3-2D or H3-3D gimbal, aerial cinematography and videography has never been easier. It’s light, rugged and perfect for travel.
Note: requires Zenmuse H3-2D or H3-3D, video downlink and monitor.
REAL FLIGHT AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
See what the camera sees and lose yourself in picture quality so good it will feel like you’re in the sky yourself.
Note: requires DJI Lightbridge, iOSD mini or iOSD MK II, video downlink and monitor.
UNBELIEVABLE INTELLIGENCE Program your flight path from an iPad with the 16 waypoint Ground Station system, to shoot with more precision than ever.
Note: Requires DJI 2.4G Bluetooth(R) Datalink. Needs 5.8 Tx to transmit video to monitor. Not the iPhone.
The Phantom 2 Quadcopter is the second generation Phantom quad-rotor RC helicopter from DJI and is bundled with the Zenmuse H3-3D 3-axis gimbal. With a larger battery and improved prop design, flying time lasts to up to 22 minutes, compared to around 14 minutes on the original DJI Phantom Quadcopter. This product will appeal to a variety of potential users, from RC aircraft hobbyists who want to record their flights to videographers and photographers looking to open up a whole new range of shooting possibilities.
The Zenmuse H3-3D 3-axis gimbal is a motorized stabilizer for mounting a GoPro HERO3 or HERO3+ action camera. It helps isolate the camera from vibration incurred by the rotors to give you the smoothest possible aerial video. In addition, it allows the camera to tilt between -130 to +50° with a precision of ±0.08°. Tilting is controlled via an attachment that goes on the back of the transmitter.
Included with this "ready-to-fly" version of the Phantom 2 Quadcopter is a 6-channel, 2.4GHz transmitter (TX) that comes pre-bound with the aircraft. It features an operational range extending up to 3,280' line-of-sight, depending on conditions. The controls are configured in "Mode 2", which is the most popular mode among RC pilots in the U.S.
Because of the complexity associated with multi-rotor aircraft, the Naza-M V2 flight control system in the Phantom 2 relies on a GPS-based navigation as well as gimbal, compass, and other data to maintain flight stability and provide other assisted-flying features. While fully manual operation is possible, and can be unlocked using the Naza Assistant Software, most users, especially videographers hoping to get the smoothest possible shoots, will opt for GPS or GPS Attitude flight mode. In GPS Mode the Naza system keeps the Quadcopter stable and right-side-up when moving, and holds it in a fixed horizontal and vertical position whenever you release the sticks.
New for this model, the Phantom 2 features a 5200 mAh battery system that has been simplified from the previous Phantom version. The battery now slots in without having to connect any DC leads, and features four LED indicators visible on the outside, tail-end of the aircraft helping you keep track of battery levels in flight. Charging is also simplified, with all of the charging circuitry now built into the battery itself, there is no more separate balance lead to worry about plugging in. Because of this design, the Phantom 2 battery cannot be charged with all-purpose balance chargers, only chargers made specifically for it.
For a complete first-person view (FPV) experience you will probably want to add a wireless video transmitter. Because the Wi-Fi system on the GoPro operates on the same 2.4GHz band as the Phantom 2's transmitter it may cause interference with aircraft operation and should never be used. Instead an option such as DJI's own AVL58 5.8 GHz Video Link Kit, or a third-party solution that can be set to 5 GHz or higher, may be used for live video transmission.
Warning: Never use the DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter with your GoPro camera when both devices have their Wi-Fi systems turned on. The DJI Phantom's Wi-Fi and the GoPro camera's Wi-Fi run on the same frequency, so if you use them together when both Wi-Fi systems are engaged, the DJI Phantom's transmitter will lose the ability to communicate with the DJI Phantom Quadcopter. Whenever this happens, you will not be able to tell the Phantom where to fly. This may result in loss of property or damage to your equipment.
The Dji Phantom 2 will fly for about 25 minutes. This Dji Phantom 2 is brand new and is the best solution for aerial flying, photography, and filming. The Dji Phantom 2 comes with one lipo battery, one Dji Phantom 2, wall charger, The Dji Phantom 2 extra spare props, and The Dji Phantom 2 remote controller.
