Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This thing is one of the best things I have ever bought in my life. It is super easy to fly and doesn't take long to learn the controls. I'll admit that im not that great when it comes to engineering, wires, chips blah blah.. but this thing is so simple to set up, its frightening.

If, like me, you are buying this for the purpose of filmmaking, there are a few things you should also consider.

1. The mount that comes with the phantom is cack. Much better off attaching the go pro in its protective case. This will reduce the 'jello' effect that is caused by the vibrations of the phantom.
2. I would strongly consider buying multiple batteries. 15 minutes of flight time is not a lot, especially if you're not gonna get the shot right first time. So having spare batteries will prolong its use in the field.
3. If you have the funds, and the know-how, I would recommend getting the Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal. This will greatly reduce the amount of shake produced by the phantom and will really give it a much greater cinematic appeal. All it takes is for a strong gust to jerk the phantom and it can ruin a nice shot. Whilst this can be fixed in post, a gimbal will still be a fantastic buy.

All in all, if you have reservations with this craft, i wouldn't worry. The fail-safe 'fly home' feature is a god send and hasn't failed me yet.

I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
