DJI – Phantom 3 Advanced

By on February 20, 2016

Yeah, I know you thought I had the Phantom 3 STANDARD model, but guess what? 

I traded up to the Phantom 3 ADVANCED model because I wasn’t getting the distance as described on the DJI website and there are differences with the way the Phantom version communicate with the Remote Controllers.


BOTH the Remote Controllers and the Wireless Communication technologies are different from the Standard to the Advanced models as listed below:

I WANTED MORE DISTANCE AS WELL AS MORE DEPENDABILITY AND SECURITY

  • Phantom 3 STANDARD:  wireless video transmission is performed through basic WiFi Downlink technology (2Mbps) at a distance of only .62 MILES
  • Phantom 3 ADVANCED:  wireless video transmission is performed through the LightBridge Downlink technology (2Mbps) at a distance of up to 3.1 MILES

  • Phantom 3 PROFESSIONAL:  wireless video transmission is performed through the LightBridge Downlink technology (10Mbps) at a distance of up to 3.1 MILES

Here is My First Flight with the Phantom 3 ADVANCED: (this flight was set at 1080p as default, next flights will be in 2.7 HD)

About 3/4’s of the way through the flight, I could not visually see my copter because of the sun setting, so I activated the RTH (return-to-home) feature and the copter came back to right above the take-off point and came straight down to land to the exact location it took off from – give or take 6 feet.
