    DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Quadcopter w/ 1080p Camera & 3-Axis Gimbal CP.PT.000160

    [​IMG]
    Description:
    A complete 1080p camera and 3-axis gimbal system come integrated with the Phantom 3 Advanced edition quadcopter from DJI. In addition to video, the camera is capable shooting up to 12MP still photos using JPEG or non-proprietary DNG RAW format. The three axes of the gimbal give you pan and tilt control, and keep the horizon line level even as the aircraft banks. Different gimbal settings allow the camera to lock onto a fixed subject, be moved manually using transmitter rotaries or the app, or to simply provide camera stabilization.

    This bundle of the Phantom 3 is classed as "ready-to-fly." This means the basics to get you in the air are included - a flight battery, charger, and pre-bound handheld transmitter (radio controller), and 16GB microSD card among them. Depending on you application, you may also require additional memory cards, additional flight batteries, and a mobile device to access the app, and possibly other accessories. Also note that a number of important compass and GPS calibration steps must be carried out before flying to ensure the flight control computer operates correctly. Please refer to the manual or Quick Start Guide before your first flight.

    • Gimbal Stabilized 1080p60 Camera
    • Camera Takes 12MP Still Photos

    I've been waiting on the Samsung Gear 360. Only a few months ago this drone was full price.

    I'm more than willing to bet that it dropped in price so much because the Phantom 4 is out now, so I wouldn't hold my breath on the Gear 360 coming down in price any time soon, since it just released.

    Great deal on what I understand is a pretty great drone, though it's still well out of my price range for one.

    Still out of my price range. I have a few car events I'd love to use this at.
