DJI Phantom 3 Advanced review

Overall I was positively impressed by this Phantom 3 Advanced. Definitely the biggest advantage over its competitors is the excellent control range and the HD video down link. In terms of design I was not impressed at all. There are other models with more professional design on the market (but this is only a matter of taste). While the package includes everything you need for your first flight, an extra battery would make it even more attractive. The DJI GO App offers countless possibilities but if you forget at home your mobile device you will be almost like hands tied. The P3A flies beautifully, the Vision positioning system allows to be flown even indoor. Both [email protected] and [email protected] videos look great. Considering its price and if you don’t need 4K resolution the Phantom 3 Advanced is one of the best mid range quadcopter.

A capable videography tool, but there are better filmmaking options available

The DJI Phantom 3 advanced is one of the mid-range models in the Phantom line, and it occupies that slot nicely. It produces good, stable footage with its 2.7K camera, has a great video downlink, a top notch controller, good flight performance, and a great interface. If the Phantom 3 Advanced happens to match your maximum drone budget and you want to eek out every possible bit of performance for your money, then this model will serve you well.

The sweet spot for features, performance and price

The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced is a great little aerial photo and video machine, however it's the whole system -- the drone, the controller and the app -- that make it so easy to pick up and just start flying. It's not inexpensive, but compared with the $900 Parrot Bebop with its Skycontroller , you won't regret spending the extra money. And if you don't need the Professional's 4K video, you can put your money toward a spare battery or two so the good times don't come to an end after 20 minutes.

Even though it's priced a few hundred dollars higher, the Phantom 3 Professional is still our Editors' Choice for consumer drones. The ability to record at 4K quality is a big plus, as the format is becoming more mainstream than niche. But if you're on a tighter budget, the Advanced is a fine second choice: it's one of the best drones out there right now.
