I am selling a couple of my DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ quadcopters because I have switched to using the Phantom 3 Professional. Unlike many of the Phantoms you see on eBay, neither of my quadcopters has suffered any crash damage. Both are extremely clean. This auction is for ONE of those Phantoms. This quadcopter flies and photographs as well as the day I bought it. I estimate that it has less than 3 hours of flight time on it. The firmware in both the Phantom and the controller has been updated to the latest available as of 7/11/15. I am including a like new 16Gb Samsung 7″ Galaxy Tab 4 WiFi Android tablet for FPV. A large-screen tablet is MUCH better for FPV flying than a standard phone. I have done a factory reset on it and wiped all the info so you will need to set it up and download the Phantom Vision app. There is a tablet holder included that attaches to the controller as shown in the photos. The included Phantom battery is brand new, purchased on 7/10/15. I partially charged it and did one test flight to make sure it was good. I recently discarded all of my Phantom 2 batteries because I made the mistake of storing them with a full charge and they started to swell. They should be stored with slightly less than a 50% charge. I flew the much more difficult collective-pitch RC helicopters for about 10 years before I bought my first quadcopter. Though the Phantoms are incredibly easy to fly, I still recommend that you practice on a simulator such as RealFlight before flying the Phantom, especially if this is your first RC flying machine. A lot of neophytes buy these things, then run right out and crash them…and then list them on eBay. Included in this auction: One DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ v2 with camera and gimbal Controller (batteries removed, you will need 4 AA’s) 16Gb Samsung 7″ Galaxy 4 WiFi Tablet with charger (like new) Tablet holder for controller Brand new Phantom battery (purchased 7/10/15) 2 sets of 9443 Propellers Phantom battery charger USB Cable 4GB Micro SD card for camera Accessory packet/prop wrench User manual, etc. (I recommend downloading the newest version) Original packaging Prop note: I suggest that the buyer pick up some of the new 9450 thrust-boosted props. I haven’t tried them on the Phantom 2, but I think they could significantly improve performance. Also, I will include, if the buyer wants, a package of new, unopened prop guards. If you are a new pilot, they can save money on props and other possible damage. However, many RC pilots believe that the prop guards can create unwanted turbulence, especially on descent. One of my Phantoms went crazy on normal descent twice and came within inches of crashing. I kept it from hitting the ground by quickly giving it 100% throttle. I attributed the loss of control to the prop guards. I removed them and did not have another problem. I highly recommend the guards for new pilots, but if you decide to use them, be very careful to descend slowly. It also helps to descend at an angle rather than straight down to minimize turbulence created by the guards. Let me know if you want the prop guards. Please check my feedback. I’ve sold many high-end items on eBay…including state-of-the-art $8000 camera bodies and $18,000 Imacon film scanners. My buyers have been 100% satisfied. There is no reserve on this auction. I don’t play that game. My minimum bid IS the reserve. Prompt payment is expected and I always ship very promptly. PLEASE fly responsibly. Respect the privacy of others. Do not harass wildlife or take your quadcopters to the national parks. On Jul-16-15 at 07:11:17 PDT, seller added the following information: I’m a bit surprised at some of the questions I’ve been getting about this item. I wrongly assumed that anyone considering the purchase would be somewhat familiar with its capabilities and how it operates. The DJI Phantom Vision+ includes a camera and motorized 3-axis gimbal. The function of the gimbal is to stabilize the camera for smooth video, and to aim the camera. The vertical positioning of the gimbal is controlled through the DJI Vision App on either an Apple or Android cell phone or tablet mounted on the controller. The camera was specifically designed for the Phantom and is attached to the gimbal. It has a wide angle lens with either a 110-degree or 85-degree field of view depending on your settings in the Vision App. The camera is capable of shooting high-definition 1080P/30 or 1080i/60 video. It takes 14-megapixel still images in either raw or jpeg format. The camera is controlled through the Vision App. The camera cannot be removed or replaced with another type of camera. When flying, your tablet or phone screen shows what the camera is seeing so you can compose your shots. I usually set the preview quality to the lowest possible resolution to minimize any WiFi delay.On Jul-18-15 at 09:22:09 PDT, seller added the following information: I just noticed a mistake in my description of the camera. The lens has a wide 140-degree field of view, not 110. It can be set for a narrower angle of view in the Vision App. I almost always used it at the full 140-degrees.On Jul-18-15 at 10:11:38 PDT, seller added the following information: Never mind…I take back my last statement. The front of the lens says 140-degree field of view. The manual that came with the Phantom states that the “Recording FOV” for the camera is 110 and 85 degrees, depending on the Vision App setting. So my 110/85 statement was not in error. DJI should probably have just eliminated the 140-degree number on the front of the lens since that is misleading. The camera sensor does not actually record a field of view over 110 degrees. Regardless, it’s a very wide field of view.On Jul-18-15 at 17:09:51 PDT, seller added the following information: I’m starting to believe that IQ tests should be required for anyone purchasing a “drone”. I just saw on the news that a number of brainless idiots flew their machines around the current Southern California wildfire in Cajon Pass, preventing firefighting helicopters from flying. Two of them even pursued the lead plane which was attempting to drop retardant, one above and one below the plane. That kind of epic stupidity is shameful and mind-boggling. PLEASE use good judgment when flying this Phantom or any other RC controlled aircraft. Do not fly near people or ANYWHERE within several miles of airports or manned aircraft. It’s sad that such common sense advice even needs to be issued.
