The one you have been waiting for - DJI Phantom GPS Drone in Ready to Fly Package!
You don't see many GPS Drone on the market in RTF package, because usually GPS Drone involves many setup, they are really complex and trouble for causal players. There for DJI came up with a solution, they launch the Phantom - the All-in-one GPS Drone with GoPro camera mount, this is a great news for every players, the Phantom is so easy to fly, and it gives you the ultimate and most simple aerial filming solution you can find on the market. The Phantom is well packed and came assembled, simply put on the landing skids and the GoPro camera mount, then you do some basic calibration according to the online manual and you are ready to fly.

GPS on a drone? What about it?
Take her out to a clean and open space (no buildings within 200m range), best with 180 degrees open sky, wait until she found all 7 satellites, now you can fly in GPS mode. What is GPS mode? Simply saying, she can hold in one position ( ~1 meter accuracy) and stay there forever, when you switch off transmitter, it comes back to where it take off, that's the power of GPS guidance. With GPS mode, you can shoot really cool video like professionals, really stable and vibration free, you can take her very high and scouting the neighborhood, taking stunning footage of tree tops and mountains.... this little white Phantom can do it with style, and super easy to operate! The best part is "Go home and Land", when you lost sight or messed up the Head and Tail of this baby, don't worry, simply shut off the transmitter, it will come back to where it lift off, this is called "Enhanced Fail Safe". Another sweet function is called the "Course Lock", when you are hovering the drone in normal 12 o'clock direction, you switch the drone to Course Lock mode, it will remember where you stand, no matter where the drone is pointing at, you can still control the drone just like standing behind it, that means you pull back the elevator stick, it will still come back to you. this is a good function for people who always mix up headings.

Experiencing on the Phantom
The Phantom is really stable and easy to fly, thanks to the GPS and the good quality Gyro, with good GPS signal it can really stay at one spot. However, we have some experience to share with you. We say DO NOT trust the GPS fully, in our experience, the GPS signal is easily affect by environmental factor, like bad weather or tall buildings, we recommend you only fly the Phantom in country side (no tall buildings or big trees in 200m range) with very big sky clearance, the Phantom can get good GPS signal and minimize the chance crashing. DO NOT fly the drone too high, because the higher the place, the bigger the wind, we said that the Phantom is stable, but hey... it can't fight the nature, it CANNOT fight big wind. Also, be a responsible flyer, always fly this drone within eye sight, do not always fly it out of sight and rely on the Go Home and Land function, this could cause danger to others. In conclusion, just keep mind that playing the Phantom within limits, you will have a great experience flying it.
