If you want the best, then get the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus
When anything less just won’t do, look to the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus to meet your demands. The Phantom is one of the most popular drones in use for both Hobbyists and Professionals in the industry and its because the drone has the perfect blend of functionality, programmability and ease of use.
The DJI Phantom comes ready to fly (RTF) right out of the box, but there’s just so much more that you can do with the drone! Many hobbyists program flight patterns, use it for aerial photography, and the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus has even been used to shoot video for Hollywood movies!
The DJI Phantom 2 includes an HD Camera that provides First Person View (FPV) flying, still shots and HD video recording, but can be easily switched out for a GoPro Camera if desired. The Gimbal has a 3 axis camera stabilization for incredible smoothness when recording in flight!
A New Controller comes with a ton of new features including Gimbal control dial, trainer port, rechargable LiPo battery and level indication and the really cool throttle locking feature.
The DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus also receives new motors, propellers and ESC to give the Phantom more power than before! It can carry more weight and has even more thrust than it’s predecessor.
Smartphone support allows you to use your iOS or Android device to program waypoints and flight paths. It also allows you full control over your mounted camera (pan and tilt functions) while in preprogrammed flight so you don’t have to do two things at once!
The camera itself is a 14MP HD camera. While it only comes with a 4GB MicroSD card, you can load up to 64GB card for extended recording. It will shoot full HD at 1080fps/30fps or 720p/60fps giving you video like you’ve never seen before… at least from what you’ve seen on Youtube. 😀 The only real reason you’d switch to the Go Pro is if you wanted to shoot in 4K. other than that, I’d not see a need to change out the camera.
