Quality of flight:
When this quad is in proper form, it flies excellently! It is extremely powerful, and precise. This is an EXCELLENT platform for video cameras.
That is where this craft falls very short. This quad is like a little princess. If you take a steel Allen wrench anywhere near it, you might as well just go ahead and re calibrate the compass, which is a silly ordeal by itself. It is SO easy to knock out of wack. You have to be REAL careful with it. Anytime you work on it, be prepared to recal the IMU, and re-calibrate the compass.
You must turn IOC on in the Phantom 2 software assistant, and even when you do, home lock, and course lock only work half the time. It is extremely unreliable. NEVER EVER RELY ON THESE PARAMETERS TO SAVE YOUR BUTT!
Ease of setup:
Another 2 star property of the quad. When you get it, you have to download multiple software products, and update all firmware, and set all the perimeters. One of which, Phantom RC assistant gave me a virus...
I got a virus warning when I downloaded the product. I wrote an email to my anti virus software company to check it out. They told me it was a false flag, and when I installed that program, I had my internet stop working, and I had to re-image my machine, and hunt down all sorts of exe files that were causing problems.
Do I trust this device?
NO! I am expecting it to fly off at some time. On the third flight, I had to bring it down for a crash landing. It stopped following the instructions I was giving it, so I lowered it to the ground to try and regain control.Read more ›
My first flight with this I thought I had found my next hobby. No question it was a lot of fun and definitely addicting to fly. First day I spent 2-3 hours playing around with it gently learning how to fly. It definitely seemed stable and fairly easy to fly given the fact I had spent a few weeks prior to getting it watching plenty of tutorial videos and reading up all i could on the unit. I was going to be spending 1300+ ( phantom, gimbal, hero 3+ and memory card ) for this and wanted to make sure I had things just right. I would take things slow when flying and get the unit up roughly 15 - 20 feet in from of me and fly within a 40 foot diameter just to get used to the controls. I had everything down pat. GPS lock, compass calibration, flight modes, making sure to fly where there was ZERO possibility of interference etc. Long story Short this afternoon after 15 minutes out flying with the unit I flew about 40 feet in front of me at about an above ground elevation of 25-30 feet in the air. I let go of the controls to allow the unit to hover and to my shock the unit took off on its own. With absolutely no control , no failsafe procedure input working , nothing! All I could do was watch 1000 dollars float away like the wind. Get this only if you can absolutely afford to do the same because there is definitely something not right with this setup. I had the latest firmware, did a proper compass calibration, set the unit to gps mode and did a "home" lock and still nothing worked. It wasn't pilot error I did EVERYTHING by the book and now feel sick. Looking around the net this seems to be a issue with a lot of DJI phantom owners out there. DJI does nothing but claim any issue is user error.Read more ›
UNBOXING - Great
Everything was included and in working order. There are a couple of wires taped to the bottom that make it look a little rigged-up, but otherwise, it looked very good. I only needed to plug in the charger for the battery. Also charged up my AA batteries for the controller [not included - recommend rechargeable because the transmitter eats batteries].
FLIGHT PREPARATION - Weak
There is a Quick Start Guide included. Seems like they were going for some minimalist style in the instructions. For something like this, I feel like more information is better. Had a hard time figuring out what the lights meant. Also not clear on how to calibrate the compass properly. Ended up watching a few YouTube videos to get the hang of it. Also downloaded the DJI controller and upgraded my firm-ware. A precaution I learned from previous emails warning of fly-aways. This interface was also weak and hard to understand. Seems the firmware go updated on it own so I can't tell you exactly how it happened. The program just did it, then didn't recognize my Phantom again. I might try again later.
FIRST FLIGHT - Awesome
Fired up the battery. Calibrated the compass. Then took off on the first flight. Incredibly stable. Very predictable [which is good]. Felt like I had total control. Did quite a few maneuvers around a large field. Took it very high and charged it around the field fast.Read more ›
