Blurb:

The Phantom 3 Standard from DJI.
Safe, easy, and fun to fly, the Phantom 3 Standard makes it possible for everyone to reach for the sky. With an intuitive flight system, built-in camera, live HD view, and more, the Phantom 3 Standard gives you everything you need to fly.

Automatic Flight Assistant
Fly with absolute freedom and confidence, knowing your Phantom 3 Standard will return to you at the press of a button. Built-in GPS records your Phantom's takeoff point and remembers it as you fly. Then at your command, or if the control signal is ever lost, your Phantom comes back to you instantly.

Your Phantom 3 Standard stays stable and under your control at all times during flight. After takeoff, it automatically hovers in place, waiting for your command. It then effortlessly changes altitude or direction at the flick of a finger. When you want it to stop, it again pauses and hovers, waiting for your next instruction.

Your Flying Camera
Record moments that you want to remember forever, and share those moments in an unforgettable way. The Phantom 3 Standard gives you an all new perspective of sports, parties, and family events with a built-in camera that captures sharp, vivid 2.7K HD video and 12 megapixel photos.

Shaky photos and video can ruin even the most impressive scenes. Keeping the camera perfectly stable is a precision engineered 3-axis gimbal, giving your footage a little movie magic. As the Phantom tilts and turns, the gimbal holds the camera flat and level, eliminating all unwanted shake.

A View From Above
See exactly what the camera sees with a live HD video feed straight to your mobile device. The Phantom 3 Standard creates its own WiFi network that streams a real-time view from the camera. Frame your shots, watch the world below, and see everything from a new perspective.

Intutive, Powerful Flight
Enjoy the thrill of flight as you speed through the air. Powerful, responsive motors send your Phantom soaring exactly on the path you want. Stop in place, speed up, or fly higher in an instant.

Curved DJI electromagnets are used to spin the motors at high, controllable speeds – all by using magnetic force, without any physical contact, to increase durability. Advances in efficiency and reliability push the limits of current technology and give you longer flights.

Ultimate Control
Full control is in your hands with a remote controller built specifically for the Phantom 3 Standard. Precise control sticks command flight, while a dial lets you tilt the camera to see more. With a built-in rechargeable battery, a clamp to hold your mobile device, and a range extender for up to 0.62 mile (1km) range, this powerful remote makes flying easy and fun.

Unique Mobile App
Snap photos and record videos with just a tap thanks to a mobile app that turns your device into a camera controller, flight cockpit, and more. The DJI GO app makes you feel as though the camera is right in your hands, allowing you to see a live view, control the shutter, change settings, and access a wealth of unmissable features:
Automatic video editor that helps you create a new movie in seconds
User-friendly interface for controlling the camera and flight settings
Live map and radar that tracks your Phantom 3 Standard as it flies
Full flight telemetry including current speed, altitude, and distance
Flight logs to record and remember your best moments
More Flying, More Fun
Fly for up to 25 minutes on a single charge. The patented DJI Intelligent Flight Battery continuously tells you exactly how long you can continue flying, based on how far and at what altitude you are, and it alerts you when it's time to head back. This information is streamed live to the GO app on your mobile device.

Recharging is quick and easy, and bright LED indicators tell you current status and power level. A protective plastic housing helps prevent damage and contains intelligent sensors that make your battery worry-free while extending the life of your battery.

This includes a 12 month warranty from Jessops.

Just FYI guys. Always good to be in the know when it comes to insurance if you get into the hobby

With the law changes etc, can you still fly these anywhere?

With the law changes etc, can you still fly these anywhere?



Unless you live in the middle of nowhere, you will find it hard to be able to "legally" fly this for more than a few minutes. However, from my (and others) experiences, 95% of the (private) owners of big drones like these, don't appear to worry too much about "legalities"!!!....

Anywhere is a loose term. You shouldnt fly within 50 metres of people, buildings or vehicles. A nice open field is fine. You are solely responsible for the aircraft and should always be able to have vision of the aircraft. If the aircraft has a camera then privacy laws come into play. As long as you are sensible, insured and know the laws you will be fine. I speak to the bobbys quite often if they approach me on the local field and have a good chat. There are plenty of RC Airfields spread around the country aswell.

If you search "Radio Control aircraft Clubs *Your area*" places will pop up. You could have a look on the BMFA site aswell. Once you start its hard to stop!
Sure these things will get banned or you wiill need a licence to use one over time.

Too intrusive for certain owners.
A little vague on site as to what grade i.e. Grade A or B Refurbished and doesn't make clear if come boxed or not?

Anyone have any idea?

The site says "They come with all spare parts but original packaging can’t be guaranteed." but doesn't mention the physical condition. I'd assume they are in full working order and with nothing other than light use marks though.
Worth buying and selling on eBay for quick profit

You do need a licence or permission for aerial work as it's called to make money from it or tbh even to gain likes on fb it's still classed as reward so you need a pfaw

True! Wanted a drone for few weeks now after I seen my mate's mavick pro, but tbh I'm sure I won't be using this as much as I think I will, so no need to spend 1k on either PH4 or mavick if I can have fun with this and hopefully sell it without loss at ebay. If you look at video samples on YT it looks pretty sick too (considering how many new models came out since).

Great price for a brilliant bit of kit for anyone wanting to jump into the hobby and get flying straight away and get pretty good quality footage and stills. I'd get this if I didn't already have a 250 racing quad and a TBS discovery.
Hi there,

I ordered one for delivery tomorrow.
I emailed Jessops Customer Service to ask about warranty and received the following reply.

Thank you for your email.

All of DJI’s refurbished products are items that have been returned to DJI within 30 days of purchase. All drones are tested and repaired if necessary, before being refurbished and quality checked.

Each drone is supplied with a standard 1 year manufacturer’s warranty, and comes with the same terms and conditions of purchase as a brand new, pristine drone.
If there is anything else we can help with, please do not hesitate to contact us.
frothar

can you upgrade the camera to a better one


No ..... the 4k version is the next model up tho.
I have just ordered
Guys, any idea whether there are any decent aftermarket batteries that are cheaper and at the same time safe to use?
hurk87

Ordered one yesterday - you get a lot with it for £299



I'm still waiting for mine to be delivered - apparently it will be here tomorrow.
if you use the Litchi app (at your own risk) then you get the features of the Phantom 4.... it can ignore your range warnings and fly waypoints...

Great price. Standard doesn't have anywhere near the range of the advanced or pro but more than enough for most.

Batteries are expensive though. Have seen blade chroma's on offer for under £300 and they're a decent alternative.
Think I'm gonna cancel my order after reading this:

There seems to be a lot of issues with PH3. Like you mentioned: signal, cracks etc, last thing I want is to lose signal while flying over some water. Also I think if you suddenly gonna lose signal and crash it would be almost impossible to claim that under warranty.

Anyway, cancelled mine now and I would advise anyone looking at this deal to read DJI forums before buying it.

Edited by: "padamowicz93" 26th Mar 2017
I was going to buy new a few months ago but having read on the forum about the loss of signal/ thing goings nuts decided to give it a miss.
Will ultimately buy one a 4 and get a license to fly it .........

Yeah I almost bought mavic pro/ph4 few weeks ago, but I know that I will hardly ever use it so no point spending a grand on a toy.

​If it loses signal, it will return home... it won't just drop from the sky. Likewise, if it runs low on battery it will return home (and it gives you lots of warning that the battery is getting low). Stress cracks in the shell are covered under warranty and, as far as I know, it's something that affects the entire Phantom range.
Great price, ordered

Fair enough, it is covered by a warranty, but you have to pay for the shipment to Holland/Germany yourself.
