DJI Phantom Drones are one of the leading drones for sale available in the United States and pretty much elsewhere across the world too. They are the preferred drone by the amateur and professional photographer and can give rise to some breathtaking video footage. Whilst some people use them to take photos and videos, others simply fly them as a hobby.
In our opinion, the DJI phantom drones for sale can be broken up into four main models, listed by their release dates:
- The original DJI Phantom
- DJI Phantom FC40
- DJI Phantom 2 (Including the Vision and Vision+)
- DJI Phantom 3 (the different camera being the only notable difference)
- Phantom 3 Advanced: With 1080p Camera
- Phantom 3 Professional: With 4K Camera

DJI Phantom FC40
The DJI Phantom FC40 comes with its own integrated video camera and we have recently written our own Phantom FC40 review. It is the drone we recommend for any amateur photographers and new drone flyers who want to experience aerial photography. The reason for this is that it is by far the cheapest DJI Phantom drone, and priced at $499 it’s probably affordable by you if you are reading this.
It is sturdy, comes with an integrated GPS flight mode and a 720p HD FPV video camera. This camera streams direct to the DJI app on your Android or iOS smartphone and any photographs or videos taken get stored on the SD card inside the drone camera. You also have the possibility to attach your own GoPro camera to it as the drone gimbal supplied is compatible.
DJI Phantom 2 Vision
The Phantom 2 Vision is the next step up, featuring an integrated camera that can take 14MP still photos and shoot 1080p HD videos. All the other features are the same as the ones described above for the FC40.
DJI Phantom 2 Vision+
The latest and most advanced of the DJI Phantom drones for sale is the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+. Besides the 1080p camera, the level of stability whilst filming is unprecedented. DJI have redesigned their drone gimbal and this high precision built in 3 axis stabilisation system ensures that your videos will be smoother than ever before.
We have covered the three main DJI Phantom drones which you can go out and buy right now for Christmas 2014. 2015 is bound to be filled with several different model releases so we’ll keep you up to date with those!
DJI Phantom 3 Advanced and Professional
We now offer brand new DJI Phantom 3 drones for sale. This is the latest drone model from DJI and basically consists of the Advanced version with a basic 1080p camera and the Professional version which sports a 4K camera. This is truly a completely different drone from any of the previous DJI Phantom versions and can only be compared to the DJI Inspire 1 in terms of the technology packed in it.
