The DJI Phantom 2+ is a great quadcopter for the beginners who have a bit of experience with quadcopters. We are saying this because the H4-3D is an advanced version of the H3-3D; therefore, it is the apt quadrotor for a person who now seriously wants to get into the game of quadcopters.

One can take amazing videos and photos with this one. It offers you the feature of live viewing of what is being captured. You can use your iPad to program the path of the copter. If the controller is disconnected with the copter it will descent back with its Auto Return-to-Home feature. It is a complete value for money product at $888.98.

  • Average camera
