I Plunk Down My Own Hard Cash for a DJI Phantom 3 Professional: First Footage

What can you do with a Phantom 3 Professional 4K after a lifetime grand total of 80 minutes’ flying? THIS, SUCKA!

Back in August I wrote a five-part series comparing the DJI Phantom 3 Professional 4K and 3DR Solo from the perspective of a rank newbie: I’d never flown an RC (radio controlled) aircraft of any kind.

Each quad had its strengths and weaknesses, and even though I’d initially been attracted to the idea of aerial videography by 3DR’s Smart Shots technology, I ended up preferring the Phantom [note: the Solo with gimbal is finally available].

When DJI announced that they’d added their version of Smart Shots to the Phantom 3 (called Intelligent Flight Mode or IFM), well…

I bought one: the DJI Phantom 3 Professional 4K – the exact same one I’d tested — along with an extra battery, a hardshell backpack [B&H | Amazon], and a 64G micro SDXC card.
