The DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quad copter is the perfect choice if you want to get into advanced remote control flying. It’s quite easy to fly the program from a PC, although you can also use it on your cellphone. The instructions are all contained in one convenient program that teaches you everything you need to know about the program and even offers flight practice. You can start flying immediately with this and be ready to go in no time at all. Once you have flown a DJI Phantom 3, you may even decide you want to try the program on a real quad copter and challenge yourself.

To begin, you need a PC that has an operating system that supports Windows. Although there are programs that work better on MAC or Linux computers, these programs just aren’t as well tested. If you don’t have a PC, you also won’t be able to take advantage of any of the helpful tutorials available. The program will install smoothly and without many problems. Once it’s installed, you’ll have access to all of its features right away. If you want to change the settings, you simply have to click on the gear icon found on the lower left corner of the screen.

There are two major controls on the DJI Phantom 3 Professional. The throttle and the landing gear. Both of these can be sensitivity adjusted. You can either increase or decrease the sensitivity. If you don’t like changing speeds, then this might not be the best program for you.

The Techniques

To help you keep your quadcopter stable during your flight, the program comes with an aerobatic feature. When activated, this feature will slow the quadcopter to a stop so that it stays balanced throughout your flight. When you activate this feature, the trim will be locked so the aircraft stays in the same position in every maneuver.

In addition, the DJI Phantom also includes an obstacle avoidance technology. It works well in both indoor and outdoor applications. For indoors applications, it can avoid other aircraft from flying into its path. However, it will not turn off if another aircraft flies into its path. It is also capable of maintaining its altitude, even if the front of it or another aircraft is spinning.

Stable Professional Experience

The first time I used the DJI Phantom 3 Professional, I was impressed with how stable it was. Compared to some of the other remote control units out there, the controls on the DJI Phantom are very responsive. I was able to move the aircraft up and down and make sharp turns. I found the program easy to understand and operate. Even beginners will find this control easy to operate and control.

If you are an experienced flyer, you won’t need the advanced features on the DJI Phantom 3 Professional. You can learn how to operate it without having to be a professional pilot or fly a helicopter before. It can easily teach beginners how to fly a remote control airplane or helicopter.

Great Service

The DJI Phantom has a lot to offer for anyone who wants a quadcopter. Its controls are great and the flight program is easy to use. The controls work fast and smoothly. If you are looking for a good entry level radio-controlled airplane or helicopter, take a look at the DJI Phantom.

When you purchase a DJI Phantom 3 Professional, you also get a program to control your airplane. Most of the controls on a typical radio controlled model is on the transmitter. The DJI Phantom has a program that allows you to connect to your PC. This makes it very simple to add new channels or reconfigure flight conditions as needed. The program also lets you adjust settings on the fly to keep your aircraft flying just the way you want it.


One of the best things about the DJI Phantom is that it’s quite lightweight. I was able to fly my personal helicopter in my backyard without any difficulty. While the remote control models from other brands are heavier and bulkier, the DJI Phantom is much more maneuverable. For someone just starting out with RC helicopters, the DJI Phantom is definitely a great starter model.

The battery life on the DJI Phantom can be a little bit short, however. For me, this was not a big deal since I often did more than three hour flights per charge. You can expect up to eight hours of flight time on a single charge. For a lot of people, this should be enough, but for those who like to go fast and have a lot of fun with their model helicopter, a quick charge will be perfect. There is also a charge cradle included so you can keep your model charged when you aren’t using it.
