Best Drone for Distance
Posted on December 30 2015
Attempting to find the best drone for distance? Drones with extended flying times are ideal for those who want to capture longer videos, or travel greater (drone) distances for challenging shots. Quadcopters with longer flying times are also perfect for farmers looking to take “inventory” of their acreage to determine what portions require more water, more fertilizer, etc.
Whatever your reason for requiring a drone that literally goes the distance, the DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter V2.0 with ZenMuse H4-3D Gimbal is the arguably best option. Let’s take a look at what makes the drone so cool:
A Fantastic Bundle
This quadcopter option is actually a drone combo, as the ZenMuse H4-3D Gimbal doesn’t automatically come with the Phantom 3. This version of the Phantom 3 4k is an exceptional model, and features more efficient motors, props, and ESCs than any of the drones that came before it. The result? Extended flying time.
The drone features a redesigned transmitter, a handheld radio controller that includes an integrated gimbal control dial, and rechargeable battery. A bundle that comes “ready to fly,” the charger, flight battery, transmitter, and most other pieces are assembled so you don’t have to spend time setting up.
DJI hails this quadcopter as offering picture quality that’s so perfect, so crisp, and so clear you’ll “feel like you’re in the sky yourself.” Requiring a DJI Lightbridge, iOSD mini or iOSD MK II, the Lightbridge “solution” makes flying the drone easy once it’s connected. Use the controller via its built-in 2.4G remote control link or DJI 5.8G remote control and get ready to soar.
Offering a fantastic 25 minutes of flight time, the battery is high-quality and high performance, and includes overcharge/discharge protection.
