If you like the Phantom 3 Standard but need a quadcopter that’s more capable, the Phantom 3 Pro grants your wish. The DJI Phantom 3 Pro has a better camera that shoots 4K video, more positioning sensors, indoor flight capability, nearly 5 times the range, and a more sophisticated remote controller.

You can also buy it from Commercial Drones as a refurbished unit, which means you save money compared with a brand-new model. And, of course, Commercial Drones’ technical expertise and its vast offerings of accessories and spare parts only sweeten the deal.

This is the Phantom 3 model that truly delivers professional-level performance at an affordable price. The Phantom 3 Pro is highly maneuverable and records in true high definition — 4K video, the level of clarity that’s needed by professionals who record events and that’s desired by amateurs capturing the activities they share with friends and family.

Refurbished Saves Money, Delivers Dependability

A Phantom 3 Pro that is refurbished is one that was returned by the original buyer. The original buyer either found a defect or simply wasn’t satisfied with the drone. DJI professional technicians go over it thoroughly, addressing any known defects and looking for any other possible problems. Those problems are corrected, and the unit is tested.

Once it’s in tiptop shape, it’s given a new serial number ending in “R.” It carries a warranty identical to that of a new drone. The return policy, however, differs: A refurbished Phantom 3 Pro can be exchanged within 7 days, but only for another refurbished DJI product.

Phantom 3 Pro Flight Performance

The Phantom 3 Pro weighs a mere 2.8 pounds with its Intelligent Flight Battery onboard. Its four compact but powerful motors help it ascend at more than 16 feet per second. It descends at nearly 10 feet per second. The Phantom 3 Pro can top 35 mph, so you’ll have no trouble tracking newlyweds leaving the chapel, bikers taking on a rugged path, skaters, surfers, canoeists or runners.

Phantom 3 Pro can fly for up to 23 minutes on one charge to its compact LiPo battery. You can buy extra Intelligent Flight Batteries so you can return to base and quickly snap out the depleted battery and snap in a fresh one. You’re back in the air in seconds.

Phantom 3 Pro’s Improved Precision

The included remote controller makes flight easy and responsive. You’re in total control, but there are many features that help ease the job of piloting your drone. The Phantom 3 pro transmits its view in 720p, while it records in 4K video, so you can see what it sees on your smartphone or tablet. Transmission range is 3.1 miles.

Two spring-loaded control sticks allow you to command your drone in flight — up, down, forward, back, right, left. You can also make it pivot right or left. The sticks automatically center when you let go, telling the Phantom 3 Pro to stop and hover as it awaits your commands. A thumbwheel lets you move the gimbal up and down. You can also program two buttons on the controller for functions you choose.

Built-in WiFi helps you link to your drone and see the live view, advanced onscreen camera controls and a map of where you’re flying.  The DJI Go App, which does the linking and sets up controls, is free. Download it online. The remote controller charges with the same charger that your batteries use. The controller alerts you when the built-in battery is running low.

Phantom 3 Pro contains both GPS and visual sensors, plus a barometer that can be used for placement.

DJI Go Simplifies Flight

The DJI Go app lets you fully control the drone manually or use programming that makes some tasks one-button friendly, including takeoff and landing, returning to base, or returning precisely to a spot to resume shooting. Toggle onscreen between still and video shooting. One button starts and stops video recording. You can set ISO from the screen. Telemetry information is displayed onscreen.

The Phantom 3 Pro has three modes, and some of them have options available. They help you fly by GPS or visual sensors, and do things such as set a new home point or a point of interest, which the drone will circle while the point of interest automatically remains the focal point.

Aerial Camera Stabilized by 3-Axis Gimbal

The camera on the Phantom 3 Pro has a preset focus that’s optimized for aerial shooting. Shoot 12MP stills in bursts up to 7fps. Many digital handheld cameras can’t do that. Record stills as JPEG files, or as DNG RAW files so you can do more detailed editing.

The 4K video is significantly higher resolution than what is available on the P3 Standard and older Phantoms. Video records at 30 frames per second, and files transfer at 60 Mbps. The f2.8 aperture captures blur-free stills and video. The sensor is 1:2/3 inch. To limit distortion, the lens is a 20mm equivalent in 35mm format.

The 3-axis gimbal is fixed to the camera, and the camera is fixed to the gimbal. The gimbal makes video shake-free. It can move up, down, right or left to counter movements of the drone, so the video shows no shaking. It’s the same principle Hollywood filmmakers use, but on a smaller scale.  What matters is that your still images are sharp and your video is smooth. The gimbal also helps the Phantom 3 Pro shoot time lapse photos.

You can share video live to YouTube. Once you download video and stills to your computer, you can edit them and share via other social media and e-mail.

Positioning by GPS, Visual Sensors

The Phantom 3 Pro can access both GPS and, if that’s not available, the Russian satellite system, GLONASS. Satellite positioning lets you send your drone exactly where you want it to be, and tells you exactly where it is. That means it will remember a spot if you want to return there so you can resume shooting. You can also set points of interest, which the drone will circle, pointing its camera constantly at the point you designated.

The GPS map and information displayed on your connected device indicate where your drone is and its altitude, and which direction the drone is facing. GPS lets your Phantom 3 Pro remember its path, so it can retrace that path and return safely to you when you give the Return Home command.

The Phantom 3 Pro also has visual positioning sensors, which add several capabilities. Visual positioning enables indoor flight because the sensors will detect objects in their path. Visual sensors also help you maintain a desired height above uneven terrain.
