Since we’ve had the AR Drone last year we’ve been trying to take it out and use in some of our outdoor activities. However, it could not carry a lot of additional load that we wanted like a GoPro. Thus, we shifted our focus on another one — the DJI Phantom.
The Phantom has a dedicated RC and can lift more load. The one we have even had a provision for the Hero 3+ with option to include a gimbal for adjusting the camera.
So we brought the Phantom around the UP Diliman grounds where a lot of other drones were also being flown during week-ends. Here’s what we got form the very short period we got to use it (our friends from @googlygooeys also had a Phantom Vision).
The Phantom uses a Hero 3+ attachment which you can control separately while the phantom Vision has a built-in HD cam that shoots photos and videos as well that can be controlled by an app.
We got the DJI Phantom from Galleon.ph. You can check their listings here.
