DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Drone with HD Video Camera
- NOTE: We recommend purchasing the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced, the newer version at the same price
- HD live streaming from Go ProHero3+
- Long flight time of up to 25 minutes
- GPS navigation with autopilot mode
The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ drone is one of the most popular mass produced drone models for people to buy and currently the flagship of DJI as it was only launched in June 2014. At the same price, now you get an extra free Phantom drone battery (worth $120) so you can prolong your flying time. In contrast to the more basic model, the DJI Phantom 2 Vision, (notice the + sign), this drone offers an integrated GoPro Hero3 capable of filming HD 1080p video and taking high definition pictures of up to 14MP.
The drone itself is robust and easy to fly, just like with the previous version and has a flying time of 25 minutes.
The Phantom 2 Vision+ drone upgrade comes with new firmware that has a feature to prevent it from flying into any No Fly Zones as noted by the FAA and is therefore going to keep you out of trouble. The feature can of course be turned off. No fly zones include airports across the world. Check the DJI page for more details on what counts as a no fly area.

Guess what UPS just delivered for me today…! SO excited!! DJI have really put a lot of thought into this drone, some definite improvements compared to their first model. They are also meant to be releasing further firmware updates in the future so keep an eye out for those. It’s a bit like a gaming console with software you can upgrade every now and then.
It’s a nice toy; I would love for the battery to last longer though!
For the price, I was expecting something smoother. Maybe it’s me and it takes more practice to learn how to fly this thing well enough so you can take stable videos but right now, it’s very shaky.

Unlike others, I decided to try this as my first drone and I wasn’t disappointed. Worked just the way it should. A little bit unstable in high winds, but that’s to be expected. I managed to take some amazing videos.

I recently bought the bundle advertised with the free battery and it was delivered the following day. Quick delivery, no complaints!
It was a fine drone about a year ago, but get the Phantom 3 advanced for the same price! http://www.dronesden.com/shop/dji-phantom-3-advanced-quadcopter-with-1080p-hd-camera/
