You will receive a lightly flown (battery associated with this Tiger Phantom only has 6 discharges), well taken care of and finely tuned Phantom 2 with all the latest upgrades, failsafes set, modified with the awesome Tiger Motors, a DJI transmitter, the DJI Intelligent flight battery with, again, only 6 discharges, a DJI Intelligent Flight Battery Charger, a set of 9445 Propellers with two spares, a full set of 4 carbon fiber propellers, a full set of 4 propeller guards, prop wrench/driver and a DJI Box. As you can see by the videos, this Tiger Phantom 2 responds well to commands, is very nimble in tight places, completes smooth yawing turns low to the ground, flies fast and hovers great, so bid with confidence that you are getting a fantastic quad with a lot of flight time to give its new owner. If you call and talk to any DJI Tech and ask about Tiger Motors, they will say our motors are just as good, so you don’t need to modify your Phantom 2. What they don’t like to tell you is every single DJI Repair Shop in America is up to their necks in straight stock repairs, so that have neither the time or the inclination to modify your Phantom 2 with Tiger Motors or any other kind of modification for that matter. The Tiger Motor modification is difficult and made more difficult because the directions on how to install the motors are completely backwards. The wires are not colored or marked in any way. These issues and the lack of soldering experience kill this upgrade for the average flyer. Anyone who upgrades to Tiger Motors will tell you they get increased battery time, yet have more power. A Phantom with Tiger Motors is much more nimble and able to do sweeping, smooth, yawing 360 degree turns as you see in the videos; whereas, with the stock motors, it is hard to produce the same kind of smooth movement consistently. The Quad is much faster and much more responsive than a stock Phantom, which makes it much funner to fly and a much more stable, high performance camera platform, especially if you take off the stock 9445 propellers and put on either the Anti-Gravity Propellers or DJI’s new 9450 or “Thrust” Propellers. I do not recommend using Anti-Gravity Propellers with a Phantom loaded down with FPV equipment however. Use the DJI “Thrust” Propellers for that. The 9450’s have the lifting power to carry those loads. The Anti-Gravity Propellers just do not have the lifting power for FPV; but, work great with a Zenmuse H3-2D. This Phantom 2 Quad isn’t a return or wasn’t bought at some auction of wrecked, who knows if they work Phantoms. This is a lightly flown; but, more importantly, professionally maintained Phantom 2. All my UAV’s are kept in dust free environments with lots of extra padding, propellers off and battery out. They are calibrated before and after each use. The firmware is always the latest and greatest, so, again, bid with confidence you are getting a true ready to fly finely tuned Phantom, not one that has been sitting on a shelf or in a box for a year, not updated, not calibrated, no failsafes set and no history behind it. The best way to preserve your quad/gimbal/camera setup is to become a better flyer, and the only way to become a better flyer is to get a real practice quad like this one, so you do not put your camera/gimbal setup at risk. Once you get the hang of flying a quad, then you attach your gimbal and camera, and the fun really begins. All drone shots are revealing shots, so you have to practice flying in tight spots and be able to fly close to the ground, maneuver around trees, down the sides of buildings, along fences or walls, from behind trees, boulders or whatever fixed object the situation gives you to frame, show movement and reveal your subject. There are a lot of people out there who have given this form of photography/videography a try only to crash and destroy their quad, the gimbal and, all to often, the camera too, along with their confidence on their very first flight or soon thereafter! That is really too bad all the way around; because, drones promise to be a big part of the future of photography/videography. You will miss out on so many great opportunities for wonderful photographs and videos, not to mention all the fun in taking them, if you don’t give it another try. Here’s your chance. These days if there is a great sunrise or sunset developing, I go for my Phantom/Zenmuse/Tiger/GoPro 4 setup, not my Canon 5D Mark III setup. Sorry Mr. Canon; but, it is true! Since the DJI first introduced the Phantom Series, my company has built up a small fleet of lightly flown Phantoms during the summer & fall, we modify some for special projects and use them to shoot promotional videos for the ski resorts in California, Utah and Arizona during the winter months. In normal years, we never brought back a Phantom. As tough and durable as these little craft are, every single one got murdered by the snow, the wind, the trees, ski lifts, fencing and/or a combination of everything. Not this year friends; because, we didn’t have any snow, so this Phantom was never sacrificed for 16 minutes of great aerial video flying down or up the slopes to its doom. As you can see by the information I have included in the pictures, all firmware is up to date and all failsafes have been set. As long as you set your home lock, if you experience a flyaway and/or a low battery, this Phantom will come back, hover over its home lock position and land. People must have a hard time setting failsafes; because, I have never, I repeat, never have bought a used Phantom with a single failsafe set. I guess people are afraid to get into the NAZA part of the PT2 Program. Please no international bidders. If you have really low feedback, like 1 or 2 or worse, 0, which are suppose to be blocked but never quite are, please email me before you bid, or I will forced to cancel your bid. As always, if you are serving in our Armed Forces, I will mail this DJI Phantom 2 to the United States Postal facility nearest you no matter where that might be. Good Luck and Happy Bidding! This Phantom 2 has not been flown since this video was taken on March 16, 2015 and was immediately and carefully boxed up after the editing was complete. You can see how smooth the turns are, the second turn was really tight and the wind was gusting. Stock motors won’t turn like and produce stable footage. I never show edited footage. Everything is raw. Once I run my editing programs, I don’t feel the finished product is what the average flyer/photography will produce.

If you look closely, you can see the cross winds, yet the video is so steady. That’s the Tiger Motor difference, and this is with no editing whatsoever. This is straight off a Zenmuse 2D, which, by the way, is up for auction right now! You should remarry the two!
