DJI, one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers in UAV systems, today announced the launch of the PHANTOM Vision, the industry’s first professional grade, consumer-focused quadcopter with integrated HD camera. Based upon the popular PHANTOM platform, the PHANTOM Vision provides hobbyists and professional videographers alike the capability to capture full HD video and pictures right out of the box.
The PHANTOM Vision is the only quadcopter on the market to offer professional-level multi-rotor flight control technology, an intelligent GPS-based autopilot system, an integrated HD camera and an iOS app for full camera control. The PHANTOM Vision also comes with a remote control unit containing pre-programmed autopilot parameters allowing pilots to switch between different flight modes to achieve particular flight experiences. Also incorporated are safety parameters, such as a failsafe feature that will bring the PHANTOM Vision back to its take-off point and land itself if it loses signal from the remote control unit for any reason.
