Ready-to-fly Aerial Filming Rig with GoPro Mount

DJI's Phantom quadcopter is the gear of choice for next-generation filmmakers, extreme sports enthusiasts and R/C hobbyists. Despite all the advanced functions, it's easy to learn, so if you've never before owned an outdoor helicopter, this is the place to start. With innovative features such as Intelligent Orientation Control, automatic navigation back to home and a sleek, integrated design, see for yourself why the Phantom is the rig used by pros and beginners alike.

Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC)

At the flip of a switch, you can change the Phantom from flying relative to its front and back to flying relative to a home point, allowing you to perform sweeping camera motions without losing track of how to make your Phantom go in the intended direction. This innovation is made possible by the Naza-M autopilot and needs to be turned on before using. Using the included USB cable and downloadable Naza Assistant software, you can enable IOC and other advanced functions.

GoPro Camera Mount

The Phantom includes a GoPro mounting case from DJI and holes for the standard GoPro housing (shown at left with the GoPro Hero3+, not included). Tip: use the GoPro's onboard video rotation (flip) setting to adjust for the upside down mounting position.

Special Start Sequence

Simultaneously hold the LEFT joystick to the lower-RIGHT while holding the RIGHT joystick to the lower LEFT. Both joysticks should be pointing down and toward each other. The Phantom's motors will then start and you can let the joysticks return to their center positions. Gently power up the motors for take-off and you're flying! To stop the motors, hold the left joystick all the way to the bottom.

DJI Logo
Phantom Quadcopter with GoPro Mount Features at-a-glance:
  • Ready-to-Fly design means no complex tuning or "binding"--each Phantom is pre-configured at the factory
  • Internal autopilot can return to home and land via GPS automatically
  • Transmitter range over 980 feet (300m)
  • Compatible with Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal for super stable videos (sold separately, requires upgrade board)
  • Up to 15 mins. of flight time with included rechargeable battery
Quick Start in 5 Simple Steps

1. Charge the included main flight battery and add your own AA batteries to the transmitter. 2. Attach the propellers (wrench included), landing gear and GoPro mount using the screws provided. 3. Turn on the transmitter and calibrate the compass (if needed). 4. Install the Phantom's battery. 5. Activate the Phantom using the special Start Sequence shown at left. NOTES and WARNINGS: The Phantom is made to soar and should only be used outdoors. For maximum safety, DJI recommends the use of prop guards, which are sold separately. Proper calibration of electronic compass may be required before first flight. Please follow all steps in the owner's manual and watch introductory videos before attempting to fly. Wi-Fi signals from an on-board device (such as GoPro HERO3+ or other Wi-Fi camera) may interfere with the 2.4 GHz control frequencies and cause the Phantom to lose contact with its transmitter. Please ensure that the Phantom's flying area is free from interference by electromagnetic signals in the 2.4 GHz range, and do not carry Wi-Fi equipment on-board the Phantom. Obey all local and national laws and airspace restrictions, do not operate the Phantom under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and avoid operating in areas of dense population. USB port on a compatible computer is required for some advanced functions; visit to download the latest Naza-M assistant software.

*NOTE: before taking it out for its first flight, grab a Sharpee and write your phone number on it clearly with the words "REWARD". If you lose it, you just might luck-out with a phone call. You may want to put the reward amount on there, too. $50-100 is well worth it if someone calls.


Okay, this is too cool. First I should state that I have *never* flown a radio-controlled aircraft. Never, as in zip.

What drew me to this was that it's made for use with GoPro cameras, which I already own, and I needed a new way to use the camera. Mine is the original GoPro, and although the DJI Phantom includes an open "basket" to hold your camera, it also uses the same GoPro mounting bracket elements, so I kept mine in its GoPro case (for protection) and hung it upside-down from the Phantom. Anyone with a GoPro camera knows that it's very easy to invert the video ride-side up.

I put mine together after watching the five videos on the DJI site (Amazon deletes URLs in reviews, so I'll add the URL to a comment), but I do recommend downloading the PDF instructions from the DJI site, also, since no instructions are included with the Phantom. Their reason for this is that it's their way to make sure the instructions are always current and up-to-date. Okay, I'll buy that (I guess).

There are firmware upgrades made available via USB, but we Mac-users are currently out-of-luck. You do not need the upgrades except for advanced features (at least for now).

I assembled my Phantom with no problems (again, after watching the five videos) and headed out to a large field. It was fairly breezy.

I purchased my first Phantom when they first came out in January. I had been flying a Hawkspy copter with a low resolution camera for a couple of months and became hooked on aerial photography and the fun of flying. For less than $100, the Hawkspy was a good value for what you got: Remote control Helicopter with Gyro and Spycamera!! -3.5ch Hawkspy LT-711 Black A large helicopter capable of filming low resolution video. The copter flew okay in calm conditions, but any kind of breeze would make flight control difficult, to say the least. After a few landings in people's backyards, and host of apologies later, I decided to upgrade my equipment to the Phantom and attached a GoPro3 Black edition camera to it's hull.

Flight control of the Phantom is vastly superior to the Hawkspy and video resolution of the GoPro is vastly superior to low resolution camera that came with the budget priced helicopter. For a toy, the Hawkspy is a good value for what it does. If you want an entry level, professional piece of aerial filming equipment, the Phantom is hard to beat for the price. My first Phantom cost about $670 and now you can find them for around $470. A really good deal for a quad copter that is well built, is easy to control, and has GPS.

If you read the other reviews, you will find as much technical detail about these quad copters as you want. I've decided to write this review based upon experience and I have several recommendations:

1. With flying time, screws can become loose. Check screws on a regular basis to make sure things are tight.

I purchased my Phantom from DSLRPros. I had several questions regarding the product, and wound up making numerous phone calls and emails before purchasing. No matter how many times I had "just one more question", Don and his team at DSLRPros were incredibly patient, informative and responsive. I never felt pressured to make the purchase; and once I did, I was pleasantly surprised and relieved to discover their post-sale customer support was just as good as their pre-sale support! As for the Phantom itself, I am amazed by the technology in this quadcopter! For the price, I was sure that there would be some compromise, some 'amateur' or 'consumer' oriented lack of technology in exchange for ease of use, as compared to other remote control copters which cost several times this much. This is one of the few examples of a product I can think of that has managed to do both with no compromising. Having almost no experience with multirotors, I was very concerned about the prospect of flying a several hundred dollar remote control helicopter without crashing, never mind the fact that my $400 camera would be hanging from the bottom of it. I was, and still am, amazed at just how easy and fun it is to fly this thing. From the peace of mind that the GPS enabled safe-home function provides, to the Intelligent Orientation Control flight mode, which takes the guess work out of figuring out which direction the craft is facing while steering, to the GPS attitude mode, which basically provides a set of 'brakes' in mid air, allowing the craft to stop and hover in place, instead of careening off into a tree or something. I am still new to it and getting better, but my initial nervousness and trepidation has been completely replaced by fun and excitement.Read more ›
