The Phantom FC40 brings a built-in HD video camera to the fun and convenience of the original DJI Phantom. With built-in Wi-Fi streaming for live first-person view (FPV) action to your iOS or Android device, the Phantom FC40 opens the door to aerial videos you’ve only dreamed of. The FC40 video camera is removable as well so that you can swap it out with a GoPro or other camera fitting the standard GoPro mount. The Phantom FC40 also includes all the features you love from the original Phantom such as advanced GPS navigation functions and intelligent orientation control (IOC) that allows a more natural reference point while panning your video shots.

A great, fun, aerial platform for photo or fun After owning a Parrot ARDrone 2.0 for the last year, I wanted something with more range, capacity, power, and ability to use other cameras. The Parrot is a very fun, really easy to use quadcoptor for indoor and limited outdoor use, but it leaves a lot to be desired. After doing a lot of research, I decided a DJI Phantom was a good choice for a ready to fly, easy to use, stable camera platform. I used the ARDrone for some aerial footage for work, I really wanted a better camera. I was a bit worried about all the all the reports of problems with the Phantom, especially the fly-aways, but ordered one anyway. The Phantom arrived (from intelligentUAS) very fast, and with everything it was supposed to. The FC40 camera was in a separate box from the Phantom, but in the same shipment. Assembly was easy, I only had to install the props, and attach the landing skids. While charging the battery, I downloaded the drivers and software for the GPS and NAZA flight controller. Pay…

5 stars for performance and 1 star for Setup. Getting through the firmware update and Setup was difficult, but all is well. Another update: After owning my Phantom FC40 for over 3 weeks, today I experienced what can only be described as a fly away. I’ve owned my Phantom long enough to know it and to fully understand how it works and how to maintain it. Despite routine IMU and compass calibrations and ALWAYS waiting for green lights, I experienced a fly away with my Phantom FC40. In fact I’d performed a compass calibration earlier in the day after returning from a trip. I was flying in a large hay field behind my home. I’ve flown in this field nearly everyday since owning the FC40. I’ve never experienced any issues like this until today. I was flying at approx. 100-150 feet when suddenly the Phantom began to free fall. Despite pushing the throttle all the way up I could not maintain any altitude. Moments before impact the Phantom seemed to respond but still slammed very hard into the ground. At this point I assumed the phantom would power off, but it did not. Without…

Awesome UAV Before I purchased this drone I looked at YouTube videos for several days trying to find out which one I wanted. That being said, I choose this one because of the included camera, I was afraid that I would crash it and destroy both the drone and my GoPro. By the way I have crashed it numerous times in the first week of flying, the first crash was into a tree. Needless to say the drone has a few scuff marks on it but no real damage.The first MUST have is the propeller guards, at $15, they will save both damage to the propellers and the drone. Second get more batteries and an extra charger, as of now I have 3 batteries with the fourth one and the extra charger on the way. Third watch the videos. Fourth WATCH THE VIDEOS!!!! There are not many videos on the FC40 but the ones for the Phantom and Phantom 2 will help.The GPS flight control is awesome and makes learning to fly the drone so easy. I have not taken it out of GPS so I can not comment on ATTI mode for…
