The inclusion of a new generation of Lightbridge technology is to make it quite easy for 720p HD digital streaming of live video straight from the drone. Controlling of the camera and seeing a video in real time is possible as one flies this best quality drone.
The DJI Pilot app’s advanced features enable you to share videos as they are produced. The Phantom Professional also comes with optical and ultrasonic sensors also known as Vision Positioning, to allow you to fly this drone indoors even when GPS signally is absent. It also has all features expected in any DJI drone. These include high-power flight battery, a powerful mobile app for Android devices or iOS, GPS navigation including auto takeoffs and auto landings, and a built-in safety database which contains a list of no-fly zones.
DJI has put some restriction measures in place to prevent your device from being able to operate within a 15 miles radius of the White House. Also included in this no-fly zone are Arlington, Silver Spring, Prince Georges County, Montgomery County and Falls Church. Your engine is automatically shut off once in this zone, even though DJI does not warn you of this issue before making your purchase. However, once you are out of the 15 miles radius, your drone should work perfectly fine.
How to Start Off?
Operating the 4K UHD video camera drone is quite simple. You only need to slot in the Lipo battery into the compartment under the V-Cam, and then add the AA batteries in the transmitters and you are good to go. The moment you switch on the system, red light flashes on to let you know that the drone is ready to go.
