DJI Phantom 2 Review

DJI Phantom 2 is a quadcopter manufactured in China. It has a solid build and a nice weight. At first glance, you will notice that the drone looks futuristic. It has a protruding camera, which will make you feel as though you are creating a sci-fi film. Aside from its visual appeal and charm, Phantom 2 never falls short on functionality. With its smooth curves, you can move the drone easily. The camera also does a good job as it lets in more light so every snap produces quality images.

Another feature that you will love about Phantom 2 is its remote that feels great. Although it is big, it is solid and comfortable to hold as it is not too heavy. You can also move freely with the control sticks, but you need to apply a bit of pressure when pulling them back towards the center. It is also equipped with three switches, with each one having superb functions.
