DJI Phantom

The DJI Phantom, our smallest UAV; is a quadcopter measuring just over a foot in diameter with a maximum flight time of 15 minutes.

This platform is ideal for photography and videography work where its size and agility are advantageous, such as indoors and other enclosed spaces. Due to it being considerably smaller than our other two UAVs, it can only carry very light imaging equipment such as a GoPro. At present we mount this on a fixed camera mount, meaning the positioning of the camera cannot be operated independently of the UAV. However, the GoPro can still be operated remotely through an iPad. The advantage of this is that operations involving a DJI Phantom only require a one person team as no camera operator is required.

The DJI Phantom has a range of safety features to ensure the success and safety of every flight. This includes an orientation lighting rig, a return-to-home function and option propeller guards which are particularly useful when flying in enclosed spaces.

  • Minimal platform footprint
  • Easy to control
  • Very quick set up

Although it can be used for a wide range of tasks we primarily use this UAV as a training tool.
