Interesting addition to the range of products
Nice but is for Phantom 1
This might be callous.... but I really hope that camera isn't any better than the visions haha
Wait a second... You could buy a Phantom 1 for about $475.00, buy this camera and you'd be very close to a P2V except for the battery life... Umm....
P2V battery = $159.00
P21 battery = $25.00
Battery life for P2V = 20 minutes
Battery life for P1 = 10 minutes...
1 spare battery for P2V = 40 total minutes flying time
4 spare batteries for P1 = 50 total minutes flying time...
What's this camera going to cost? Let's say it's $200...
That's $775.00 out of pocket for the PV1 with 50 total minutes battery life and a 720P camera you can run from your smart phone. It doesn't have the battery failure issues and has been a pretty rock solid platform for quite some time now.
Is the camera in the P2V that much better? Better integration? All this so I don't have to bring the craft in for a battery change quite as often?
Is this new camera going to cost $400??? I'm missing something... Please help me here... :?: :roll:
But..... It's a lower spec camera, and no tilt or gimbal. It also uses 2.4GHz.
The range will be gopro like unless you buy an extender...
And -- I really wouldn't want to be using a boosted 2.4GHz wifi with the 2.4GHz control channel....
2.4 ghz, not sure what will happen if you use a 2.4 ghz wifi cam with a 2.4 ghz tx but they sell it like this, it should work then i think'?
I dont see that there is a range extender included 89 euro
and a vison camera is 419 euro
phone mount 19 euro
and one of the reason i have the PV is that there is only one battery needed. In this camera Fc40 there is an internal battery so another charger is needed and i am already happy that i cleaned my desk with all the chargers from the f550
My first PV (dealer send me a new one) had no tilt function because of the app that didn´t work as it should and i really missed the tilt function until i received my new one.
Interesting - they are now directly competing with GoPro.
Well its definately lower res.. 720P
notice its no linger available?
That is very strange... I wonder if they knew it would make all the P2V owners upset so they pulled it back for a bit. Anyone else just seriously wish they waited like a couple months for the PV before buying :?
Odd -- they've removed the app for it too, from Google...
<---- raises hand !!!
That's what I'm so upset about. I understand the P2V has more functionality than the P1 1.1.1 with this camera, but it's an option I probably would have opted for considering what I use the bird for. They, I'm guessing here, could have introduced them both at the same time and given us an option on which way to go. I'm also guessing that THEY guessed it would negatively impact sales of the P2V ESPECIALLY considering all of the "issues" we've seen since it's introduction... I'm turning into not so much of a DJI fan and I really didn't expect to wind up on this side of the fence. I really thoroughly enjoy the P2V when all is well. :| :| :|
Huh.... Do these guys closely follow the forums? Has anyone seen any other negative feedback about this camera in other forums?
Interesting bit of video...

Yep - dji let a lot of info and pictures out before they pulled it. Mind you it was on a page not linked from any menu on their site; so maybe they are just rejigging the site...
I got the original link from FB, and the group owner was contacted by DJI today and told
to remove it
You could do a search on their website for "Phantom" and it came up anyway
Looks like it may be a bit more than just the camera
Ahhh.... It's an entirely new bird!!!! :roll:
Soooo... the plain original phantom goes for $399-449... Phantom Vision at $999... this one should fit in at around $699-749?
Phantom Vision at $999 ??? I paid $1,299...
Here it is: (But i guess it is off topic now because it is no Phantom Vision)
DJI PHANTOM FC40
