New Product

Official Phantom 3 Professional / Advanced ***Owner's Thread*** First post has FAQ


Be your own director and tell your story as never before. Reach for the sky and capture professional-quality footage from a new perspective.
With a crystal-clear camera, real-time HD video display, and intuitive flight controls, what will you create?


Imagine amazing, immersive footage at your fingertips. Imagine capturing content fit for the big screen, with crisp images, beautiful resolution, and vivid colors. With an integrated, stabilized camera, your Phantom 3 brings your imagination to life.

The Phantom 3 Professional comes with a 4K camera, while the Phantom 3 Advanced shoots 1080p HD.


Your Phantom 3 fits into your life and makes flying remarkably intuitive and easy. From takeoff to landing, it's completely under your control, responding to your commands while automatically handling the most complex aspects of safe, stable flight.


Complete power is at your fingertips. Control the camera and change flight settings, all from your mobile device. Plus:
Automatic video editor that helps piece together your best footage in seconds
Ability to livestream your flights to YouTube for all to see
Live map that tracks your Phantom 3 at all times
User-friendly interface for adjusting full camera and flight settings
And more...


Experience a new view of your world, over long distances and in real time. Simply connect your phone or tablet and you have a live 720p HD view of everything your camera sees as you fly. This immersive view streams to you in absolute clarity, enabling you to get that perfect shot and experience flying in a unique way.
This live view is made possible by DJI Lightbridge technology that is used by professional cinematographers and photographers who demand only the best. Fly with this view, and feel what it's like to be above your world without ever leaving the ground.

Higher voltage, more energy, and greater power combine to give you a vastly improved flight experience. This upgraded Intelligent Flight Battery has built-in sensors that let you know the status of your battery in real time, so you always know how long you can continue flying and when its time to recharge. Recharging is fast and easy, and the Phantom 3 Professional comes with an upgraded charger for substantially reduced charge times.

Keep your Phantom 3 fully under your command while accessing
the most-used features right on the included remote controller.
This crucial piece of your flight experience has been engineered
specifically for flying camera platforms, making every flight easy,
safe, and intuitive.。

Each motor has the power and precision needed to give you the best flight experience possible. Brushless motors
work with lightning-fast ESCs to make your Phantom 3 fast, agile, and responsive.


Fly indoors, low to the ground, and in GPS-free areas with Vision Positioning technology. Visual and ultrasonic sensors scan
the ground beneath your Phantom 3 for patterns, enabling it to identify its position and move accurately.

Automatic elements of your Phantom 3s intelligent flight system help you fly and are available at the touch of a button.

With one tap in the DJI Pilot app, your Phantom 3 will turn on its motors and rise to a pre-set height. It will then hover perfectly in place until you direct it where to go.

When GPS is available, your Phantom 3 remembers the exact spot that it took off from. Wherever your aircraft is flying, tap a button to have it return right back home.

If the Intelligent Flight Battery is running low, or if your Phantom 3 loses the connection with your remote controller for any reason, the aircraft will automatically return to the takeoff point and land safely.


Have a new idea that requires a view from the sky?
Develop your own app by using the DJI Software Development Kit. The Phantom 3 platform is fully open and allows you to program apps that:

Take pictures, record video, and control camera tilt and settings, all based on your apps needs.

Record and analyze your Phantom 3s live HD video stream. Use this real-time visual information to make your app more powerful and useful.

Full flight telemetry, including the Phantom 3s live altitude, speed, distance, and more, is available to your app.

Program your Phantom 3 to act as your own personal, flying film crew.

Set waypoints and assign automatic actions for your aircraft to follow.

Select a location or object to focus on, and the Phantom 3 will continuously face it, no matter how you fly.

These first few post will be edited with support information, updates and FAQ.
If you would like something added please PM me.

I just received my unit a few days ago. I received the PS3 Professional . It included the 4k cam, Has full Lightbridge support, 4s battery setup, new shell design, new power system and an inspire like remote. It will retail for $1299.

I only have a few flight on since I only received 1 battery. Those few flight have been getting used to the craft and just playing with the functions. First thing you will notice is this is not your standard P2, it has tons more power and flies more like an inspire than a p2.

Once I get more flights under my belt and get more technical specs I will continue to add to this post and the post below.

First Flight on the P3 Pro (2 min 47 sec)

Updated 4.9.15
DJI P3 Pro - Test Flight two (1 min 15 sec)

My prediction is for a new DJI Phantom.
It will have Lightbridge, 4K Inspire Camera, with a HIGHER price tag of $2000 but it will come with its own custom box.

Second prediction: AN IN HOUSE GROUND STATION CONTROLLER with LIGHTBRIDGE, compatible with InspireOne. Or at least a DJI re-brand of a tablet that works with Lightbridge and with custom application.

Prediction Three: Updated Naza FC. This flight controller will offer telemetry from ESC as well as FC to their new Ground Station Controller. New firmware changes for more "extreme" flight modes suitable for FPV racing. The firmware will work on older Naza V2 for FPV racing modes.

Prediction four: FOR SAFETY, possibly a system forcing new generation flight controller users to login via a smart phone INTERNET connection before flight. Verifying equipment, GPS coordinates to updated no fly zones, possibly logging your flights for your protection of where you flew. central database of info about magnetic interference, GPS satellite strength prediction, weather....

Prediction five: a DJI mapping application that is subscription based but many times cheaper than the current offerings.

Prediciton six: Inspire ONE+ , updated to handle the E1200 propulsion system and 17" props.

Prediction seven: A whole line of Inspire One sensors. Flir attachment. Zoom camera. New applications exclusive to PREDICTION TWO (in house ground station hand held controller). Module for follow me, follow me camera.

Prediction eight: Application for DJI Drones to fly and control and work as a swarm.

Prediction Nine: DJI announces huge media partnerships with sporting events. Kind of like REDBULL and GOPRO.

Prediction TEN: DJI industry protection program. They will have some professional equipment insurance program for S1000 crafts. This program will insure for equipment failure but you will have to have logs, camera footage. It won't insure none DJI camera's, but it will the gimbal, DJI frame, flight controller, and electronics. Drone will have to be recoverable.

I am hoping for a new Phantom

My guess would be a Phantom 3 almost with the specs the Inspire 1 has but Phantom size with the 4k cam and lightbridge. I bet longer flight times also, maybe 30 minutes?

This would be great, so come on DJI and surprise me
