16 The DJI GO smartphone and tablet app functions as a remote piloting and camera interface for the Phantom 3. The Phantom 3 and its prosumer predecessor, the DJI Inspire 1, were the first camera drones that truly felt like remote cameras. As someone who worked in the field as a professional photographer for more than ten years, I think of the Phantom 3 as being the first real flying camera. We are no longer flying drones that carry cameras. These drones actually are cameras, in terms of functionality.

What Is a Gimbal? Almost all camera drones these days use gimbals to stabilize onboard cameras. The word gimbal is a generic term for a pivoted support that allows for object rotation around an axis, but in the drone world, gimbals are mounts that stabilize cameras in two or three axes using brushless motors—the same kind of motors that drones use to fly. In fact, gimbals work similarly to the way drones work. On the camera mount is an inertial measurement unit (IMU) that tells a gimbal controller its orientation.

It’s simply not currently possible to build a quadcopter that matches the Phantom 3 in size and features, for any price. The 3DR Solo is another option. It is a “smart” drone that can carry a GoPro camera on an optional gimbal. It features integration with smart devices and is the first drone that can control a GoPro through its HERO Bus. It can tell the GoPro to start and stop recording, shoot still images, and change its settings. 3DR has also been focusing on “smart” moves, and the Solo comes bundled with software-driven features that assist cinematographers and photographers by removing them from the flight equation.
