Version Differences


  • It dif­fers from its broth­ers in that data exchange — “remote — smart­phone” and “remote — quadro­copter” is car­ried out via “wi-fi”, since this mod­el does not have a dig­i­tal video link “Light­Bridge”, as a result of which the range of trans­mit­ted sig­nals is notice­ably reduced (500 — 1000 m) and the qual­i­ty of the video stream dete­ri­o­rates.
  • There is no GLONASS sup­port. Because of this, the posi­tion­ing of the quadro­copter and the accu­ra­cy of move­ment over long dis­tances (up to 5 km) for the World are dete­ri­o­rat­ing.
  • There is no Vision posi­tion­ing sys­tem, which sig­nif­i­cant­ly helps in pilot­ing.
  • The cam­era is also dif­fer­ent, on “Stan­dard” and “Advanced” it shoots in 2.7K res­o­lu­tion at 30 fps. There are no but­tons for pho­to and video shoot­ing, Play­back but­tons, as well as but­tons for chang­ing the expo­sure and cam­era angle on the remote con­trol.


  • The exact oppo­site of the “Stan­dard” ver­sion. Advanced man­u­fac­tur­ers have equipped with advanced dig­i­tal video link tech­nol­o­gy “Light­Bridge”.
  • Added gglob­al nav­i­ga­tion satel­lite sys­tem GLONASS (at least 36 satel­lites simul­ta­ne­ous­ly)
  • The drone received the Vision posi­tion­ing sys­tem.
  • The devel­op­ers left the cam­era unchanged.
  • On the remote con­trol added pho­to / video but­tons, Play­back, as well as a scroll to change the expo­sure and a scroll to con­trol the angles of the cam­era. In addi­tion, the man­u­fac­tur­er has added two more but­tons that you can bind accord­ing to your per­son­al pref­er­ence.


  • Top option. The only dif­fer­ence from the “Advanced” ver­sion is the cam­era, which is capa­ble of record­ing video in 4K qual­i­ty at 30 fps.

Flight and shooting modes

one. fol­low me – after acti­vat­ing this func­tion, the copter will obe­di­ent­ly fol­low the object for shoot­ing and record every­thing on video, and the object only needs to choose a route, the copter will do the rest.

2. Way­point Nav­i­ga­tion (way­point nav­i­ga­tion) – with this func­tion, the user can plan the flight route in advance. It is con­ve­nient because it allows you to dis­tract from the con­trol of the copter and focus only on shoot­ing. The copter itself will fol­low the pre­vi­ous­ly select­ed way­points.

3. Point of Inter­ests (point of inter­est) — with this func­tion, the user focus­es the atten­tion of the copter on some par­tic­u­lar object, after which the Phan­tom itself will car­ry out dizzy­ing flights over it, record a video.

Квадрокоптер DJI Phan­tom 3 занимает лидирующую позицию в своем сегменте по праву. Производитель тонко подошёл к потенциальному покупателю и предложил три варианта дронов. В каждом он заложил возможности, которые будут актуальны как для новичка, так и для продвинутого пилота, который стремится извлечь от владения P3 максимальную пользу.

Если обратить внимание на предыдущие творения, то заметим, что DJI Inno­va­tion постоянно прислушивается к мнению поклонников своей продукции и чётко реагирует на критику, а в результате они из года в год получают мировое признание.

Если отвлечься от предложенных версий, то в целом, квадрокоптер в первую очередь подойдёт людям, которые сначала отдают предпочтение качеству и уже потом обращают внимание на особенности, ведь качество является залогом того, как долго мы будем получать удовольствие от владения тем или иным продуктом.
