Description
The DJI Phantom 3 Standard is a relatively basic quadcopter, but the features it does have are of the highest quality. This drone has a high-quality camera that offers resolutions of up to 2.7K video and 12 megapixel stills from a gimbal-stabilized camera, giving you professional-quality results straight out of the box. With a flight time of 25 minutes and a max range of 1km, this is the perfect machine for capturing all your adventures from above. Use it to take stunning photos and videos from all angles, without having to lug around a heavy professional rig. The Phantom 3 Standard also comes with a controller that has a live video feed for first-person view, so you can see everything the camera sees in real time. You can also connect your phone to the controller and use it to view live streaming video from the camera. The drone comes with a GPS system that enables it to hover in one place, allowing you to switch it on and leave it to record footage hands-free. Thanks to its obstacle avoidance system, it can also fly around buildings, trees, and other objects without crashing into them or losing connection. Thanks to its modular design, this is also a very upgradable drone. It has a standardized connection port, so you can easily add new equipment to it.

You're not going to find a better drone for $500 than the Phantom 3 Standard. It delivers the stability, reliability, and safety features that you expect from a Phantom, and all of the same automated flight modes as its more expensive siblings. There are certainly some trade-offs to be made, considering the price point. It doesn't support 4K. If you have the budget, you should look at the Phantom 3 Professional or Phantom 4, both of which were named Editors' Choice when we reviewed them. But if those are out of your budget, rest assured that the Phantom 3 Standard is a very solid aircraft, and certainly the best you'll find for $500, so it earns Editors' Choice marks in the budget segment.

DJI Phantom 3 Standard Review

There are some setbacks to the Standard. The charge time isn’t bad exactly, but it’s still over the one-hour benchmark we’d prefer for drones that can’t last at least 40 minutes. Still, if you want something to try your drone-tinkering skills on, the DJI Phantom 3 Standard is an excellent option.

With a price tag of $499, DJI phantom Quadcopter is best product for beginners. You will surely find a great deal for limited price in terms of impressive features, design and ease of use. DJI Phantom can beat most of competing models with its advanced mounting options.

The budget Phantom camera drone jettisons some functionality, but its core greatness remains

This probably isn’t a drone for anyone looking to make a career out of aerial photography – but £650 seems like a fairly small price to pay for what you’re getting here: a device that flies super steadily for up to 25 minutes at a time, filming good quality video and snapping brilliantly sharp stills from insane heights. A device that is well-built and incredibly easy to use for such a complex piece of equipment. Basically, while we’d rather own the 4K-capable Professional, the Standard strikes the best balance between affordability and performance. It’s a soaring success.

An entry-level drone that's much better than basic

There's a big gap in the camera drone market right above $250 to right around $700. The options in that zone either aren't as polished as DJI's Phantom 3 Standard, require an additional purchase of a camera like a GoPro or they're smartphone- or tablet-controlled and you have to buy a controller separately if you want that experience.

The DJI Phantom 3 Standard is a great camera drone that is easy to fly and takes high quality video.

The DJI Phantom 3 Standard remains the camera drone to beat, and nothing we have tested so far comes close. It flies well, producing generally rock-solid video with excellent color and lots of detail. The $979 Professional and $1,300 Advanced models add support for 4K videos and a few other flying tricks, but I doubt most users will need these: The 2.7K mode looks great on an HDTV, and most people just don't need 4K video at the moment. The various flight modes are superior to the Yuneec Q500, producing a drone that is easier to fly and shoot great-looking video with. That's what counts in the end, and the Phantom 3 Standard remains the easiest and best way to do it.

A great choice for getting into the aerial footage game on a budget

The DJI Phantom 3 Standard is a great choice for anyone who is itching to add aerial footage into their cinematic endeavors, but can't justify spending four figures on a drone. While the more expensive Phantom models and the GoPro Karma do offer appreciably greater performance in comparison, the Phantom 3 Standard is still a reliable, usable filmmaking tool. The gimbal is supple enough to produce the smooth panning shots most people think of when they envision drone footage. The 2.7K camera has good color accuracy, and the controller benefits from DJI's penchant for creating great user interfaces. Bottom line, the Phantom 3 Standard won't make your movie look quite as good as the more expensive models, but it will get you most of the way there for a fraction of the price.
