For best output mount SD card for better video recordings and AAA batteries for the transmitter. Take preventing measures to secure the blades at the time of crush by supporting with blade protector. Rotor of this kit should be handled carefully as it is delicate which is more prone to damage soon. Look at the manuals and get an idea by watching drone flight videos   in you tube before trying out on your own. Have a safe flight experience with this drone.

Flight Characteristics of the RC Quadracopter

The built in 6 axis gyroscope propels the drone even in the windy atmosphere. It gives us the optimum flight behavior due to its standard weight which is more appreciable when compared to other drones in the market. We can experience uninterrupted flight about 7-9 minutes if we charge the batteries for 30-40 minutes. There are many options to extend the battery life which is available in the store. Two types of RC transmitter provided for this model they are ‘Standard’ and ‘Expert’. I recommend you to purchase the Expert type which provides you to flip the drone in all 4 directions with less difficulty.

Video Features of the Hubsan

Use Micro SD card for better video recording. The Camera has the features to records at 720p (1280*720 resolution) which seems to be more impressive, but mind you! Phantom 4 still stands as the top camera drone. Use the button to control the start and stop of the recordings. Analyze the surroundings before trying to record videos since windy and dark atmosphere will not result in best video recordings. Initially you will face many obstacles while recording using this drone but still by learning through experience you can enjoy the optimum usage of this kit.

The latest DJI Phantom 3 is capable to fly 3.5 km above the ground level. But it is advisable not to test the device up to that level because FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has a rule that drones can fly only up to 400 feet from the ground level. So be careful while using this drone in order to abide the rules of FAA. DJI has also introduced a firmware in order to restrict its flight within 400 feet. Since most of the drones were connected to GPS system which brings the quad back to the user without getting lost. The ‘Free Vision’ features give you the real flight data to be displayed in your control panel of the drone.
