- Enter your model number to make sure this fits.
- Complete quad copter and remote transmitter, pre-tuned by the factory and ready in minutes! Just charge the included batteries, attach the propellers and you're flying.
- Fun flying by itself or even better with a GoPro to record the action. Tested with Hero2, Hero3/3+ and Hero4 models; camera and gimbal/mount sold separately. Note: Wi-Fi streaming from the GoPro camera is not possible.
- Built-in support for the Zenmuse H3-2D gimbal for extreme camera stability and silky smooth video recording (gimbal is optional but can be purchased bundled with the Phantom 2).
- Fly up to 28 minutes on a single charge using the included 5,200-mAh lithium polymer (LiPo) battery that's easily removable and contains intelligent circuitry and a charge-remaining indicator built-in.
- New self-tightening propellers (redesigned for V2.0) means extra security and no worrying about lost prop nuts when you remove the props for storage.

The Phantom 2 Quadcopter v2.0 features a number of notable hardware updates over the previous Phantom 2 model from DJI, including more efficient motors, redesigned self-tightening props, a new transmitter (radio controller) with built-in battery and gimbal control dial, and other improvements. The Phantom 2 - for those who aren't familiar - is a quad-rotor UAV aircraft that can be great fun to fly standalone, but more than anything serves as a platform for capturing aerial shots using a GoPro HERO action camera (gimbal and camera available separately). It features a "Smart Battery" with integrated regulation circuitry that provides up to 25 minutes flying time; which is a substantive improvement over the original Phantom's still respectable 14 minutes.

I should start out by saying this is not a toy. It is equipment. DJI in very clear writing says that this is for 18+, and I totally agree with them. Do not assume that you can just turn it on and fly it around. In order to not have a DJI Phantom horror story of your own, you must do a preflight check on the quadcopter every time you plan on flying it. Also, you must read and memorize the Phantom's user manual. In there, they describe what to do when your copter decides to "have a mind of its own" and fly away. All failsafes can be overridden with a simple knob sequence, but someone who didn't learn how to use the copter wouldn't know that. It is also important to understand the LED indicator's meaning. Maybe 2% of those horror stories were the Phantom's fault, but most were human error.

Now enough with the boring stuff, let me tell you how awesome this thing is. I have never ever flown anything before, so as you can imagine I was extremely worried that I would crash it in the first five minutes. The Phantom is actually pretty easy to fly! There is a very minimal learning curve - I suggest marking on the controller which knobs do what so in case of a panic attack, you can easily gain control. The quadcopter itself is quite sturdy, you shouldn't worry about the accidental bumps while flying. I highly suggest (with this model - NOT THE GIMBAL/GOPRO) to add prop guards. Adding the prop guards with the gimbal and go pro adds too much weight and will affect flying. But a bare Phantom, or a phantom with only a GoPro, you will be fine with the guards. The guards protect against bumps while also adding protection from anything that could interfere with one of the props and cause it to fail (which would cause the phantom to hurdle down to the ground and smash into a million pieces). The battery lasts 25~ minutes but my first flight (no camera attached) lasted about 30 minutes until Failsafe cut in and piloted my Phantom back to "home point." It takes a little over an hour to recharge. Just enough time for me to rig up my GoPro to it and have another go at it
The first time you fly your Phantom, make sure to do a calibration (instructions in manual). After it is calibrated, you will not need to recalibrate the Phantom unless you decide to fly it in a different area (such as on the beach then in the park a couple miles away). IF you are one of those who are very worried about the whole "mind of its own" and scared that the Phantom may harm itself or others since you no longer have control, you can always disable the Failsafe. But it is also important to stay close to the drone, don't fly it super high, and always have a good battery charge in the drone and controller. So, do your high and far away shots while you have a strong battery, and keep it relatively low to the ground and close to you once there has been about 20 minutes of flight time.
That is about it, the Phantom is a wonderful quadcopter for those looking to get the perfect shot or if you just want to fly it around. Please remember to update the software of your DRONE and CONTROLLER. The software can be found on DJI's website. Many of the scary bugs and kinks have been worked out in the latest update.
TL;DR: This drone is awesome! I highly recommend it to anyone willing to take the time and learn how to operate it safely. Don't be scared by all of the rules and requirements of the Phantom. It's clockwork once you get used to it.
