DJI Phantom 2 Vision Quadcopter

Introducing the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Quadcopter! This easy-to-fly remote control helicopter outpaces the competition with a staggering 600 meter range and a 25 minute flight time per battery. The quadcopter can fly at 33 mph forwards/backwards, and can achieve 13 mph vertical ascent.

Priced at $1199, the quadcopter puts aerial photography within reach of hobbyists and photographers. The Phantom 2 Vision’s camera shots 1080p30/60i video and takes 14MP stills. The Phantom 2 Vision is easy to fly with built-in GPS autopilot. Just let go of the controls and the Phantom 2 will hover and maintain altitude so you can get the shot. If you fly the helicopter out of range, the Return-to-Home autopilot will guide the unit back to it’s initial launch point and safely land.

MORE INFO

25 minute flight time, really?

Flight time and the ability to carry a camera is what lead me to discover the Phantom 2 Vision. I had my doubts about the battery life until I watched this video from DJI’s CEO Colin Guinn. He flys the Phantom 2 Vision 8 miles down Lake Austin at a speed of 19 mph to prove the battery’s performance. The final flight time was 27:53 and the battery still showed 3%.

Phantom 2 Vision Operating Range

The Phantom 2 Vision controller will control the quadcopter up to 600 meters away(line-of-sight) and the heads-up fly by video live feed has a range of 300 meters. FAA limits flight altitude of civilian UAVs to 400 feet.
