The Phantom 2 Vision+ ships ready-to-fly, meaning that a radio controller–often referred to as a transmitter is included with it and is pre-bound to the aircraft and that only minimal assembly using common household tools is required. It features a 5,200 mAh battery that can sustain the quadcopter in the air for up to 25 minutes. The transmitter features a line-of-sight range of up to 2625′, depending on conditions.
The camera is controlled via 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi using an app available for iOS and Android devices. Using the supplied mount, you can attach your smartphone directly to the controller, giving you a “heads up” display directly from the camera’s point-of-view. From the app you will also be able to start and stop video recording, take a snapshot and even tilt the camera up or down.
