Phantom 3 Comparison All Models (Standard vs 4K vs Advanced vs Professional)

Phantom 3

The DJI Phantom 3 Standard is the basic model of the 2015 Phantom 3 drone series.  The P3 Standard is $500+ and lacks many of the new features such as 4k resolution, lightbridge signal range, sensors, GLONASS GPS, etc, so we HIGHLY recommend upgrading to the new DJI Mavic Pro which starts at $749.

 

The DJI Phantom 3 is the world’s best-selling consumer drone, praised on blogs, magazines, and video reviews for its exceptional video quality and low price. With four versions available, how does a person find out which one is for him or her?

 

Lightbridge

Lightbridge, found only on the Phantom 3 Advanced and Professional, transmits High-Definition video from a camera to a remote/monitor from over a mile away. That’s four times greater range and much better resolution than found on the basic, WiFi video stream found on the Standard and 4K. Lightbridge are not available on the Phantom 3 Standard or 4K.

 

GLONASS

The Phantom 3 Advanced and Professional use both the US Global Positioning System and Russian GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS) for location tracking. The use of both GPS and GLONASS insures pilots can find their aircraft, as well as set-up takeoff and return points. GPS and GLONASS are not available on the Phantom 3 Standard and 4K.

Best Value

The Phantom 3 Advanced and Professional have cameras that record super HD video, and also stream HD video via Lightbridge. Both drones deliver superb video over long distances, use cutting-edge satellite navigation, and can work effortlessly indoors. The Phantom 3 Standard and 4K do not.
