The Phantom 2 is DJI's revision to its original ready-to-fly quadcopter. The DJI Phantom, better known as the iPod of drones, is a quadcopter marketed primarily as an aerial photography platform for people with less R/C flight experience. Although the Phantom comes preassembled in a clean, white, plastic frame, the quadcopter contains similar hardware to other hobbyist drones, but in a more condensed package. Check out this guide for a detailed look at the propulsion, control, power, and video systems of this powerful tool.
