The Phantom 2 Quad copter from DJI brings all the features you love from the original Phantom but with 2X longer flight times and native support for the Zen muse H3-2D Gimbal, which is available separately or optionally bundled. With self-tightening propellers and a much larger intelligent battery that lasts up to 28 minutes on a single charge, the Phantom 2 is a significant upgrade from the original. The Phantom 2 retains the Phantom’s fast setup and easy control layout so that you’ll be making professional quality aerial videos in just minutes.

Product Features

  • Complete quad copter and remote transmitter, pre-tuned by the factory and ready in minutes! Just charge the included battery, attach the propellers and add 4 AA batteries to the remote and you”re flying.
  • Fun flying by itself or even better with a GoPro to record the action. Tested with Hero2, Hero3 and Hero3+ models, sold separately. Note: Wi-Fi streaming from a camera is not possible because it may interfere with the Phantom”s remote control.
  • Built-in support for the Zen muse H3-2D gimbal for extreme camera stability and silky smooth video recording (gimbal is optional but can be purchased bundled with the Phantom 2).
  • Fly up to 28 minutes on a single charge using the included 5,200-mAh lithium polymer (LiPo) battery that”s easily removable and contains intelligent circuitry and a charge-remaining indicator built-in.
  • New self-tightening propellers means extra security and no worrying about lost prop nuts when you remove the props for storage.

Fun Until it isnt. While i didn’t purchase on Amazon I feel I need to leave this review here for possible buyers.My first flight with this I thought I had found my next hobby. No question it was a lot of fun and definitely addicting to fly. First day I spent 2-3 hours playing around with it gently learning how to fly. It definitely seemed stable and fairly easy to fly given the fact I had spent a few weeks prior to getting it watching plenty of tutorial videos and reading up all i could on the unit. I was going to be spending 1300+ ( phantom, gimbal, hero 3+ and memory card ) for this and wanted to make sure I had things just right. I would take things slow when flying and get the unit up roughly 15 – 20 feet in from of me and fly within a 40 foot diameter just to get used to the controls. I had everything down pat. GPS lock, compass calibration, flight modes, making sure to fly where there was ZERO possibility of interference etc. Long story Short this afternoon after 15 minutes out flying…

Excellent Machine with a Few Terrifying Moments – Buy It! Unboxed my Phantom 2 three days ago. Was a little freaked out by past reviews. It’s an expensive toy and I didn’t want it to fly away. I’ve got a little experience flying a little Hubsan so I know it can be hard. I was very cautious when I got started. I gave it 4 out of 5 starts for two reasons: 1. Instructions were weak. 2. Low battery auto pilot take-over. Here is how it went.UNBOXING – GreatEverything was included and in working order. There are a couple of wires taped to the bottom that make it look a little rigged-up, but otherwise, it looked very good. I only needed to plug in the charger for the battery. Also charged up my AA batteries for the controller [not included – recommend rechargeable because the transmitter eats batteries].FLIGHT PREPARATION – WeakThere is a Quick Start Guide included. Seems like they were going for some minimalist style in the instructions. For something like this, I feel like more information is better. Had a hard…
