If you have a GoPro lying about, naturally you\u2019d want the best drone for GoPro as a companion. For those with deeper pockets, one suggestion is the DJI Phantom 2 Drone. Its fast speeds and long distance give it a well-rounded flying experience. And video stability is handled by its excellent 3-axis gimbal system.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - DJI Phantom 2\r\nThe DJI Phantom 2 is all about getting the right shot and angle, whether it\u2019s with its 3-axis gimbal system or ground control feature. One stabilizes the camera, while the other gives you a hands-off experience.\r\n\r\nSpeed & Power\r\nPowered by a 5200mAh LiPo battery, the DJI Phantom 2 has a flight time of up to 25 minutes, which is about 10 minutes above average. More importantly, it can zip around the sky going 33.5 miles per hour or 15m\/s.\r\nRange & Durability\r\nThe DJI Phantom 2 is primarily made of plastic (aside from hardware and gimbal). That\u2019s not necessarily bad; in fact, it keeps it lightweight and certainly helps the drone reach its maximum range of 1000m (limited by the controller). The Altair Aerial Blackhawk, on the other hand, is made of lightweight metal.\r\nCamera\r\nLike the Yuneec Q500, the DJI Phantom 2 has a gimbal system for better image stability. This comes in the form of its Zenmuse gimbal, specifically the 3-axis H3-3D, making it so video recording is incredibly smooth. And yes, it does support GoPro cameras (note: GoPro\u2019s Wi Fi can interfere with the drone\u2019s transmitter).\r\nFeatures\r\nThe most important feature is the DJI Assistant software, which opens up settings and options for updating firmware and calibrating sensors. Then there\u2019s Auto Return-to-Home, sending it back to its launch point; GPS mode for improved flight control; and a \u201cNo Fly\u201d zone feature to ensure your drone stays out of trouble. It also comes with Ground Station support, giving the drone a path to follow autonomously while you snap pictures and create videos.\r\nValue\r\nWhat holds the DJI Phantom 2 back is the lack of a remote control, which means you\u2019ll have to rely on your mobile device. Even worse is the hefty price, limiting who\u2019d actually buy one down to experienced fliers. It\u2019s a great deal for them, but not so much for newcomers or amateurs. If either apply to you, or you\u2019re on a budget, the 3DR Solo Drone is easier on the wallet.\r\nDJI Phantom 2 Wrap Up\r\nTaking everything into account, the DJI Phantom 2 has just about everything you would want out of a drone, while setting the bar. It\u2019s most at home in the hands of experienced fliers, since they\u2019ll best use the 3-axis gimbal. However, newcomers can easily get the hang of its performance.
