If you have recently bought a brand new DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ then you may not be aware of the features of the aerial vehicle. In order to ensure that you have the right configuration for your style of flying and the best possible performance from your drone, it is essential that you consider the three main areas when buying a Phantom camera drone.
First of all, before you even begin to purchase the camera drone for your own use, you will need to make sure that you can get a high quality motor for your Phantom 2 Vision+. This is particularly important if you are going to be using the drone for aerial photography. An external brushless motor (or something similar) is essential in order to give you high power to move the aircraft at high speeds.
The next thing that you should consider when buying a drone for aerial photography is whether or not you will be able to use the software that is supplied with the camera drone. As you do not want to lose any flight time by using the software that is supplied with the drone, it is essential that you can work out whether or not you will be able to use the software without any problems.
It is also important to check the battery life that you will receive from the drone. For most people, a four-hour flight time is considered sufficient and if you are flying for long periods of time, then you may require additional batteries. However, you do not need to pay the full price for these batteries unless you are intending to fly for more than eight hours.
If you have ever used a camera drone before, then you will know that it takes some time for the camera to "learn" how to capture a photo. Therefore, it is essential that you are ready to snap the perfect shot as soon as the camera begins to take a picture. This is particularly important if you are using the camera for amateur photography.
You may also need to consider whether or not you will be able to find a good range of cameras. Generally, the larger the package, the more powerful the camera.
In general, the one particular feature that most drone users consider when buying a camera is the ability to use the camera while you are flying the drone. If you do not fly the drone at a normal speed, then you may not be able to use the camera and if you need to be able to use the camera when you are flying, then you should consider looking for an option such as a waterproof camera.
Even if you are a novice to the field of photography, you should consider getting a camera that does not need batteries to operate. It is much easier to get photographs and the like when you are able to fly the drone at a normal speed rather than trying to "learn" how to use the remote control while attempting to take pictures.
Although you will not be able to fly a quadcopter through a window, you should still consider getting a wireless option. This means that you will be able to take the photographs whilst you are in a safe place and are not facing the risk of the camera breaking into pieces while flying through the window.
Once you have completed your research and bought a package that meets your requirements, then you will need to consider the flight range of the unit. This is very important because if you are flying outside of your home and away from any buildings, then it is unlikely that you will be able to use your camera drone.
In addition, if you are flying outside of your home and you do not have a remote control, then you will need to invest in a transmitter so that you can connect the camera to your computer. A transmitter should be included with your package, and even if you are not planning on using the drone to shoot pictures, you should look for a transmitter that allows you to record videos.
Finally, you should review some of the best review sites online and see if you can find a good guide that has had positive feedback. Your drone is the most important part of your photography kit and it is vital that you consider these factors before making your purchase.
