In a breakdown of the exact updates, the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced now gets an upgrade to support 2.7k video resolution and also gets a host of new functions:

  • Follow Me lets the Phantom 3 follow its operator on their adventures, tracking them from a pre-defined distance and recording them as they go, without the need to control the drone.
  • Course Lock allows the drone to fly along a set path, perfect for completing tracking shots.
  • Waypoint gives users the ability to fly and record a flight path and then repeat the same route but with total control of the camera and orientation – they can also save speed settings and store favourite missions
  • Point of Interest is the ability to set the drone to circle an object at a predefined height and take shots and footage not available previously.

Josh Farleigh, MD of Flying Gadgets, commented: “With these updates, the DJI drone ranges are incredibly intuitive and certainly punch above their price tags considering the technology inside.”
