FAQ
The biggest difference between the Phantom 3 Professional and the Phantom 3 Advanced is in the camera. The Phantom 3 Professional is capable of shooting spectacular 4K video at up to 30 frames per second, and the Phantom 3 Advanced is capable of shooting at resolutions up to 2.7K. Both models shoot 12 megapixel photos.
No. The cameras that come with both models are permanently attached. Attempting to remove, replace, or modify the camera may damage the product and will void your warranty.
While the Remote Controller charger and Intelligent Flight Battery charger have been integrated into one unit for your convenience, it is recommended that you only charge one item at a time. We recommend that you never charge both items using the same charger at the same time.
The two buttons on the back of the Remote Controller can be customized and assigned to function as you choose through the DJI GO app. Refer to the manual for more information.
The signal transmission distance will vary depending on environmental conditions, but the Phantom 3 series can reach distances of up to 3.1 miles (5 kilometers) away from the pilot when unobstructed and no interference.
The Phantom 3 is compatible with the DJI GOapp for iOS and Android, which is already used with the DJI Inspire 1. The app will detect which aircraft is connected and automatically adjust accordingly.

The DJI GO app is only compatible with devices running iOS 8.0 or later or Android v4.1.2 or later.
The following devices are recommended:
iOS: iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Air Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 2 Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad Air 2, iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad mini 3, and iPad mini 3 Wi-Fi + Cellular. This app is optimized for iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus
Android: Samsung S5, Note 3, Sony Xperia Z3 , Google Nexus 7 II, Google Nexus 9, Mi 3, Nubia Z7 mini
Support for additional Android devices will become available as testing and development continues.

Director is an automatic video editor built into the DJI GO app. After recording several video clips, simply tap “Director” from the app’s home screen. You can then select a template and a specified number of clips, which are automatically combined to create a short film that can be shared immediately.
By default, the Remote Controller is set to Mode 2. This means that the right control stick controls the movement of the aircraft and the left control stick controls the throttle and orientation of the aircraft. These controls can be changed to Mode 1 or set to a customized configuration in the DJI GO app. This is only recommended for advanced users.
No. The Phantom 2 Remote Controller is not compatible with the Phantom 3. The Phantom 3 uses an all new Remote Controller that operates at 2.4 GHz, has dedicated buttons for camera control, and has customizable buttons to fit your needs.
No. The Phantom 3 uses a newly designed Intelligent Flight Battery with greater power. The Phantom 3 has a 4 cell battery with a capacity of 4480 mAh and a voltage of 15.2 V.
This is normal. After you attempt to power off the Intelligent Flight Battery, it may remain on for a few seconds as any video data is saved to the Micro SD card. This helps prevent your data from being lost or corrupted.
No, there is no need to buy a separate Remote Controller. Your Phantom 3 comes with a Remote Controller that is already linked to the aircraft.
No. The included Remote Controller can be used to control both the aircraft and the gimbal tilt at the same time.

This switch, called the Flight Mode Switch, allows you to toggle different flight modes:
P-mode, or Positioning mode, indicates that both GPS and the Vision Positioning System are active and your Phantom 3 will attempt to stabilize using both.
In A-mode, or Attitude mode, the aircraft does not use GPS or the Vision Positioning System. Only the barometer is used for stabilization. The aircraft can still return to the Home Point as long as a sufficient GPS signal is available.
F-mode, or Function mode, activates Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC) functionality. Refer to the IOC section in the Appendix of the User Manual.
By default, only P mode may be used. Refer to your user manual for instructions on unlocking the other modes.

Flight times will vary depending on environmental conditions and usage patterns, but the Intelligent Flight Battery is designed to provide up to 23 minutes of uninterrupted flight time when fully charged.
Do not remove the Micro-SD card from the camera. If it has been removed, place it back in the camera. Turn the Phantom 3 on and wait approximately 30 seconds as the video file is restored.
You may need to adjust the settings of your mobile device. Open the Settings menu, select the Privacy tab, select the Photos tab, and then toggle the switch next to the DJI GO app icon. If the Pilot app has not been granted access to your albums, the photos and videos cannot be synchronized.
Hover the aircraft over a flat, level surface. Slowly pull the throttle stick down until the aircraft touches the ground.
Every battery is tested prior to being packaged and shipped. This affects the discharge time of a new battery and is the reason that the discharge time is not zero. The battery is safe to use.
No, it cannot.
