DJI Innovations brought out the Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter last November. This one differs from the previous Phantom Quadcopter in many ways. The Phantom Quadcopter had a remotely tilted, motorized HD video camera, whereas the new Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter has a camera that is enhanced with a three axis electronic stabilizer. This assists in keeping your shot steady no matter of the changes in flying.
The new Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter now has extras like a return to home application, a real-time viewing of the video that is onboard thanks to the WiFi capabilities to be linked to an Android device or an iOS, thus creating the first person view, or FPV possible flight. It is also enhanced with a position holding GPS. It is ran by a 5,200 mAh lithium polymer battery and can stay in flight for 25 minutes on a single charge. The camera as great resolution for both photos and videos. It has a video max resolution of 1080p at 30 frames per second and the photos are crystal clear thanks to the 14MP.
Some features from the previous model are still included, such as the ability to tilt the camera up and down remotely. The new model has improved this function by adding an electronic gimble system that makes the camera level, even if the quadcopter does not. It accomplishes this automatically by tilting and panning to compensate for the quadcopter’s changing in directions and unsteadiness. What does this mean for the consumer? It means no jumping on your videos thanks to the gimble system. It also gives the flyer the added benefit of modifying a picture by tilting the camera straight down, ninety degrees.
Many of the other specifications from the Phantom 2 Vision to the Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter remain the same. One great update for the firmware is to the flight control system. This feature is the No Fly Zone. This allows the flyers to know at all times what area they are flying in and where they should not be flying, as in an airport fly zone.
The Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter is not cheap. It retails for $1,299.00, however this is only around a hundred dollars more than the original Phantom Vision had retailed for.
Here’s a video that describes everything about this quadcopter in detail:
