Most readers will want to download our newer book on the Phantom 3 (Buying and Flying the DJI Phantom 3 Quadcopter).
We are leaving this book published because many still desire an overview on the company and the earlier models - we also lowered the price of this to $2.99 and will be discontinuing the paperback version.
Updated for 2015 and Phantom 3 launch - DJI Phantom Quadcopters represent a major milestone in the adoption of consumer level drones. This is a drone that, just a few short years ago, would have been impossible to build at anywhere near the current pricing. Similar vehicles have been built in the last few years, but they are usually in kit form or are unfinished and require time, patience and mechanical & technical skills.
This short book will help you decide if a DJI Phantom fits your needs and which model may best suit your intended use.
This book will likely save you time, trouble and money - and make sure you complete successful missions with your new Phantom. Among the subjects covered are:
Who should consider a DJI Phantom Quadcopter?
A Short History of Quadcopters and DJI
Guide to 2014 DJI Phantom Models
