Recently I purchased the DJI Phantom 3 Standard quad/drone for getting some better footage for my YouTube videos. I was very impressed with the results right out of the box. As I have a history in the RC hobby it was really easy to get flying in a few minutes with the only setup of note being the basic firmware update.
One thing I will cover in a later video- If you have R/C experience with planes, helicopters or quad copters like me, you might actually have a harder time with the Phantom than someone who has never flown before. There are a few nuances that need to be “re-learned” before the video footage really starts coming out great.
I decided my first video on the DJI Phantom would be just a basic overview of what a person can truly expect from the video footage when they first buy this machine. There are a pile of videos out there and some of which can truly mislead a person’s expectations in my opinion.
I made this video on my 3rd flight with the Phantom. I then added a bit of easy editing (I will do a full video on how to apply these edits on the MKme Media YouTube Channel next week). I also left a portion of the footage completely unedited (raw from the camera) at the end of the video.
Check out my Phantom 3 Standard video and let me know what you think. If you are thinking about purchasing this quad copter for aerial videography– my only advice would be to go for it. I’ll explain more in the next YouTube Video but I simply cannot recommend this drone enough. The results are staggering in my eyes.
