The DJI Phantom 1.1.1 Quadcopter with GoPro Mount is a quad-rotor RC helicopter that acts as an aerial platform for a GoPro HERO action camera. This product will appeal to a variety of potential users, from RC aircraft hobbyists seeking the ability to mount a camera so they can record their flights, to videographers and photographers looking to open up a whole new range of shooting possibilities.
Version 1.1.1 of the DJI Phantom adds a number of small upgrades over previous versions for easier set-up and more-reliable performance. New, self-tightening propeller blades make set-up easy and protect against loose propeller blades causing in-flight vibrations. New Dual Receivers in the Phantom 1.1.1 and a new transmitter with an upgraded circuit board help increase the Phantom’s operating range and help protect against wireless interference. And, the new Naza-M V2 GPS autopilot software has better control and more accurate GPS stabilization.
The Phantom can achieve a maximum horizontal flight speed of 33 ft/s and can ascend and descend at up to 20 ft/s. It comes with a 2.4GHz Transmitter (TX) that features an operational range of up to 984′ line-of-sight. The controller draws power from readily available AA batteries. Please note that many Wi-Fi systems, including the Wi-Fi used on GoPro HERO cameras, also operate on 2.4GHz and may interfere with the transmitter. Take care to ensure the GoPro’s Wi-Fi is turned off with operating this quadcopter.
Because of the complexity associated with multi-rotor aircraft, the Phantom relies on the Naza-M V2 autopilot system. This system uses GPS for navigation and to maintain flight stability. While fully manual operation is possible, most users, especially videographers hoping to get the smoothest possible shoots, will opt for GPS Flight Mode. GPS Mode is an autopilot system that keeps the Quadcopter stable and right side up when moving and holds it in a fixed horizontal and vertical position whenever the controls are released.
Removable GoPro Camera Mount
Phantom has an external removable camera mount for you to mount a lightweight GoPro camera or other similar camera. It allows you to conveniently capture flight footage for exciting POV shots.
Includes Improved Transmitter
Phantom contains a remote controller and receiver, which help you avoid the inconvenience of purchasing such things. The only thing you need to do is to add TX batteries (4x AA dry cell). The 2.4 GHz (ISM) frequency makes the effective control distance up to 984.25′ (300m) in ideal flight environments (it may be lower in certain flight environments). The frequency-hopping, anti-interference design allows multiple remote controllers to work at the same time and provides a reliable remote communications link. The 1.1.1 brings with it an upgraded transmitter with a new chip set capable of a longer transmission. Both control sticks on the new transmitter spring to the center. The last addition is a pre-installed gimbal tilt lever. (Gimbal not included.)
Phantom has an integrated flight dynamics system, the Naza-M V2 + GPS multi-rotor autopilot system, as well as a dedicated remote control unit and receiver. Flight parameters and functions have been set up before delivery and the proven stability of the Naza-M V2 autopilot system allows you to easily achieve optimum flight performance.
Return to Home Failsafe
If the Phantom loses the signal from the controller for any reason, the “return to home” feature will initialize. The aircraft will ascend to 60 feet, and then make a straight-line course back to the “home position” specified during GPS calibration. Once home the Quadcopter will safely descend to the ground and power itself off. As with other modes that rely on Naza-M V2 to work, Return to Home requires proper calibration and connection to more than four GPS satellites.
Low Voltage Protection
Phantom offers two levels of low voltage protection, a function of the Naza-M V2 autopilot system. It prevents your multi-rotor from crashing or other harmful consequences caused by low battery voltage. In the first level of protection, the LED indicator blinks red to warn you. In the second level protection, the system will trigger the Phantom to land automatically.
High-Intensity LED Indicators
LED status light on the tail of the Phantom Quadcopter provides you with various kinds of feedback and warnings. Colors alternate between green, amber, and red and can either be flashing or solid. These messages give you valuable information such as whether the GPS is properly calibrated,
