Anybody flying this one? Looks pretty good for the price and has a lot of features that could be pirated onto other frames down the line. I would like to know if you could gimbal the GoPro holder too (got one for christmas).

Re: DJI Phantom

I have a Phantom. It's a good little package if you are looking for a turn key set up. If you are into custom diy stuff it may not be the best way to go. I got it as a trainer and to get a feel for the DJI controller. It will cary the gopro ok but may struggle with a gimbal and go pro. Guys are already upgrading the motors and props on these, so that may help. Another problem is the 2200mah 3s will give you about 6-8 min with the go pro. So with a gimbal your flight times would be very limited. The battery slot is very tight and the 2200 just fits in there. You are also limited to 2200mah battery's because you have no room for anything larger. I would change the props as well as the DJI ones are pretty cheep and will most likely break. Other than that I love it. I will be building a s800 soon. And may build a small carboncore with naza to replace the phantom down the road. I say pick one up. Got mine from Danny at canadadrones.
