THE BAD: DJI leads a new user to believe all the built in guidance system will do everything for you from takeoff to landing. And it will, until it doesn't. That WILL happen, not an IF - it is a WHEN... You have 3 sensitive components talking to each other (controller / drone / smartphone) using both Wi-Fi and radio, plus very sensitive onboard compass and GPS. This overly complicated plumbing will fail at some point and it can happen even a few feet away. At that point, you need to switch to manual control immediately - and hope you have time. I have had compass errors happen 3 feet off the ground in auto land and the dreaded "crazy flying meat slicer with 4 exposed blades" needed to be grabbed by the landing gear to stop it from hitting things as it got confused and would not respond to the controller. BTW: A pair of chef's slice proof gloves is a great idea at take offs and landings, don't ask how I know.
RULE NUMBER ONE: Always be prepared for the unexpected! Like flying a private plane the phrase "hours of calm punctuated with seconds of panic" applies here. Best advice for new pilots - learn to do everything manually first - especially landing - because at some point you will need that skill and need it FAST! Also never ignore the long boring preflight compass calibration. I do it every time I set up for flight, but my terrain is always varied from flight to flight. DJI says it isn’t necessary unless you move the unit over 100 miles – or change terrain dramatically, which I do almost every session, from lake, to desert, to high mountains. I like calibrating because not only does it re calibrate your compass - more importantly - it warns you if there are magnetic disturbances. If there are anomalies showing in the software messages - my advice is pack it up and move elsewhere, or fly totally on manual control. Ignore any of those warning at your own risk. Compass or GPS warnings for a new pilot mean WAIT or RELOCATE.
SAFETY: Never forget how dangerous these machines are. 3 pounds with spinning blades plummeting from 400 feet is a deadly weapon. Don't fly over people or roads. Warn folks nearby to be aware of the drone. A drone, under the right set of circumstances with a simple malfunction could kill a pet or a human. It's like owning a gun, be responsible or don't own it. Never do like these YouTube folks and fly it miles away to see how far it can go or push the limits to see how fast you can swoop over a crowd of people. That is inviting disaster.
THE MIDDLING - should the worst happen with the Standard, and you make a fatal flying error - more likely when a new pilot – then you are out only $400 or so max, instead of a grand, and actually less if you sell the remaining controller and battery etc. on eBay. Every piece of a DJI is worth money and easy to sell, so pick up the pieces if you can. If you can find your crashed drone DJI may fix it under warranty if it was the drone's fault, but don't count on it. DJI at this point in time has horrible support, if that changes, it would be wonderful. I would buy a 3rd party crash warranty over DJI's coverage any day of the week, if that is important to you. They are sold here on Amazon BTW...
NICE PART: Battery lasts longest of all the DJI P3 models in the Standard version by 2 - 3 minutes because of fewer sensors. If you step up to a P3 Pro - batteries and case can come along (But not P4) and at $100 plus per battery, that is good news. Eventually you will want 3 or 4 batteries so you can fly about hour with juice to spare for landings, trust me.
BOTTOM LINE: Most of the "Bad" I listed applies to any drone, from $49 to $5000. You can watch at least 3 videos on YouTube of folks crashing $3000 DJI Vision Drones on their very first flight, despite the Vision having much more tech and more sensors and collision avoidance. Sensors or not, if you tell it to go into a wall because you are disoriented and unfamiliar with the controls, it's going to do what you say. This sad story happens every day. This is why I don't encourage a new drone pilot to drop a grand or more on a first drone. Fly a while first and you will never get that disorientation that can cost you a fortune. Instead you will understand the controls and the principles and react instinctively to the inevitable unexpected situation. In my opinion at this time, most any drone any cheaper or similarly priced as this is not a "real" drone, so you can't take as many of the skills with you when you step up. Many drones in this price range have nothing better to step into. Once you learn to fly a DJI and get familiar with their software and controllers - you can fly their whole line pretty much. I haven't yet mentioned the excellent camera that makes me often joke "for the price of a GoPro, I got a comparable camera with a stabilizing gimbal that flies." Put all this together and that is why, in my opinion, this is the BEST DEAL in drones right now - by far...

My Phantom 3 arrived on time. You can detach the quadcopter's battery from the quadcopter and charge it separately. Meanwhile, the controller also needs to be charged. You stick your smartphone in a clamp at the top of the controller the way you may put it in a holder on the top of your car dashboard for map directions.
The quadcopter comes with stickers so you can replace the red bands. At first I didn't know how to use it so I wasted my bands by putting them on top of the red ones, not realizing I could remove the red bands first. I ruined my pink bands that way :(
Some random facts for people who have never owned a drone:
-You can't use these to spy on people because they're loud. Not leaf-blower loud (thank goodness), but hair dryer loud. A lot of people who don't own drones talk about using them to spy on people so that's why I brought it up.
-You do have to register your drone, but it was 5 bucks and the registration lasts 3 years so I wasn't bothered.
-It is fairy light. The weight of a filled coke bottle or so. When I carry it around I can stick my arm through the leg handles as if it were a weird plastic handbag.
As for flight, the quadcopter has its own SSID when you turn it on. You go into your phone, connect to the SSID, and that connects your phone to the quadcopter. You go into the DJI GO app and you will see a livestream through the app.
Now, nothing can be poking your camera. That means a completely flat surface, not grass, because the grass will keep the camera from turning which then means the drone automatically will not fly. It took me a while to figure that out. That can be annoying when you're testing it out in a park so I wish there were a way to override that and say go ahead and fly anyway (or maybe there already is? I have my drone on beginner mode).
Flying is automatic. You drag your finger across a bar on the screen and the Phantom 3 rises on its own. Landing is the same way--your drone can be a few hundred feet in the air and you just have to slide your finger across the screen and it descends slowly and carefully. In that sense it's idiot-proof, although once I flew the drone into a wall on a windy day so it's not completely idiot-proof, heh. Nothing broke but the propellers got a little scratched up, there's a black smudge that I can't get rid of no matter how hard I rub with soapy wet cloth.
The battery lasted me maybe up to 30 minutes but it starts shutting down at around 30%. I get a good 20 minutes of flight out of it though. I find myself staring at the phone's live feed. The live feed lets you either take pictures or start recording a video, so I like to fly up and then slowly turn the drone with the video recording on. I don't know whether I can include sound, as all my videos have been silent, but there are a lot of features so maybe I haven't discovered it yet. Best of all the live feed measures the height and distance from the controller you are holding: that way you can see whether your drone is 100, 200, 300 feet in the air and you don't break government regulations. I don't dare fly above 200 because I'm paranoid it will stop receiving signals from my controller.
You can also put a radius limit so that if you try to take your Phantom 3 beyond that distance it will not go any further. If you keep trying to make it go beyond that point it will simply hover in place. Great protection for a newbie like me.
Now, the wind can screw things up for you because the Phantom 3 is fairly light. The wind once blew my Phantom 3 into a wall, another time into a bush. Thankfully both accidents happened pretty low so then Phantom 3 fell only a few feet. The actual quadcopter is fine, only the propellers are a bit scratched up.
Overall it's an excellent product, I just wish I lived somewhere where I have more excuses to use it.

Ok, si eres "nuevo" en esto de volar drones ten en cuenta que tal vez (ojo, tal vez) deberías empezar por uno de rango inferior como el Syma X5C. La razón es sencilla, con uno más pequeño uno puede cometer ciertos errores que con el PS3 serían extremadamente dolorosos (en términos económicos y hasta físicos) además que esa experiencia será fácilmente 'traducida' cuando uno tome en sus manos una herramienta poderosa como el PS3, pues a pesar de que son muy distintos, a la vez son muy parecidos.
Pero supongamos que a pesar de ser 'nuevo' en este punto has decidido adquirir el PS3, espero que te sirvan estos consejos:
- Incluye una guía rápida para que empieces a disfrutar el quadcopter lo más rápido posible. Es necesario tener conexión a internet pues deberá actualizarse el firmware de la tarjeta controladora de vuelo. Si eres nuevo por favor que tu primer vuelo sea en exteriores.
- Incluye una memoria de 8GB Class 10 para que inmediatamente disfrutes las tomas en alta calidad.
- La App de control DJI es tanto para iOS como Android. DJI ofrece muchos tutoriales para sacar provecho de las funciones del Phantom.
- La App cuenta con un simulador, de esta forma podremos practicar las funciones especiales. Tal vez lo incomodo es que es necesario tener el drone activo para que se pueda usar.
- Al ser un quadcopter muy popular hay bastante información.
- El control remoto tiene la capacidad de ajustar la sensibilidad de las palancas de mando.
- Fácil de configurar la opción retorno (cuando se pierde la señal durante cierto tiempo entre el control remoto y el quadcopter, este regresará al punto programado, sí, esta función se incluye en el simulador).
- El PS3 tiene sensores que permiten saber la velocidad del viento, la altura, la distancia entre el control remoto y el drone y toda esta información se despliega en la app. Además que puedes usar el Google Maps o Google Earth.
- 16 m/s la velocidad máxima (sin viento y en modo A)
- Velocidad ascendente máxima de 5 m/s
- Velocidad descendente máxima de 3 m/s
- La batería activando la cámara permite un tiempo de vuelo de alrededor 20-22 minutos. Este tiempo puede variar por múltiples factores, velocidad del viente, temperatura, etc.
- En mi caso me costó mucho quitar la protección de plástico del gimbal (el estabilizador para la cámara). Aunque para ser justo, tal vez estoy dramatizando mi torpeza, pero no está de más recomendar tener cuidado ya que el gimbal es el que hace la "magia".
- Cuando compres una micro SD primero checa si es compatible. En caso de que no encuentras información te cuento lo que me pasó. En el manual solo mencionan que puede usarse una micro SD a partir de Class 6, y que se recomienda usar una Class 10 USH-1 --- Así que confiado, compré una de 64GB Kingston Class 10 USH-1 ¡y no funcionó!. Simplemente la cámara del PS3 no la detectaba, la razón es que hay que revisar otro parámetro y es el de la Velocidad de Escritura y ese parámetro en la micro SD que no funcionó en el drone (pero sí en otros dispositivos) es de 10 MB/s. Para cámaras de resolución tipo 2.7k o 4k se recomienda una velocidad arriba de los 10 MB/s, en mi caso estoy usando una Lexar LSDMI32GBB1NL300A.
- El aterrizaje manual, por favor presta atención a esta parte.
En resumen, es una poderosa herramienta que vale cada peso. Las horas de placer están garantizadas, y ahora recomiendo lo obvio: Leer el manual, date un tiempo y disfruta de la maravilla técnica que está en tus manos.
Por último y por favor ATENCIÓN:
Ten en cuenta al momento del vuelo el Combination Stick Command (CSC). Es un comando que no se puede bloquear y básicamente significa que podemos desactivar los motores en pleno vuelo. La información que detalla el CSC viene en el manual.
El INAH tiene reglamentos estrictos acerca del uso de estos dispositivos en los edificios a su resguardo. Para poder realizar tomas en esos edificios será necesario adquirir un permiso. Recomiendo leer las restricciones de vuelo que aplican en México o en el país que lo quieres usar.
Mejor drone no existe por este precio, ni aquí ni en china.
Lo único que me gustaría es un mayor rango de alcance (1.2 km) que realmente se desconecta al rededor de los 600m.
