Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"The Phantom 2 is OK but the extra battery was fails."
_
"The details following:When I push the circle button on the battery of Phantom 2 or when I plug the charger into it but the battery Led 2 and Led 3 light only, not Led 1 nor Led 4.Or I insert this battery into The Phantom 2, my cell phone connected to this Phantom 2 warns: Wrong battery."
_
"It arrived intact and with all the parts, including the extra battery (which was a problem in another review I read)."
_
"The battery is sometimes hard to remove."
_
"RecommendationsI would recommend that you purchase an extra battery, a carrying case, and prop guards-- Prop guards will simply make your blades last longer and can make your blades last longer just in case you have a small tap on a wall, or a tree etc."
_
"The battery is also a smart battery so it will last a long time, the battery will drain by itself to keep the quality of it working in good conditions if it's not used for a long time."
_
"~Index ~ DJI Innovations GPS Flight Radar Battery Life Recommendations Conclusion DJI InnovationsThe biggest thing when purchasing something for a high price no matter the item you'll always want the best customer service if you're in need of service or have any questions regarding your items."
_
"CopterShop has a really great deal including a free extra battery and a free set of prop guards."
_
"The battery life is excellent, and the screen keeps track of the battery, and tells you how long before you have to head back to land before the Phantom lands itself."

_
"Don't buy the Vision+The one small landing issue broke the DJI gimbal for the camera."

_
"One hard hit toThe ground and the cam data cable broke."

Crash

Crash:
"Lots of fun, and the resale value holds, so as long as you don't crash (durable), you shouldn't have a hard time getting most of your money back."
_
"i have never experienced a single problem and have never once crashed mine."
_
"I read negative reviews about this product but after lots of flying and crash a lot too , one thing you do every time you fly is to make sure all firmware versions are up to date and always calibrate or make sure you get more than the minimum satellite needed to fly the drone."
_
"I've since received my Phantom 2 Vision+ back from DJI suport, and it flys wonderfully and hovers like it should, but, I've lost confidence in my Phantom from all of the past problems I had and find myself not using it like other people do on youtube, out of fear that it'll start with the problems like before and I will lose or destroy the Phantom from a crash."
_
"However, when you crash it, and you will, and when you tear the flimsy POS ribbon cable on the gimbal, the entire gimbal camera assembly becomes an expensive paperweight."
_
"The camera and gimbal are a little flimsy, so don't crash it!"
_
"DJI Innovations Application (iPhone & Android)When I used the iPhone application, I did not have any problems with any app crashes or freezing or any other dysfunctions, so I would easily rate the application 10 10."
_
"I've crashed it a couple of times and it's tough - no damage at all"
_
"He has enjoyed it, but crashed it a few times."

Flying

Flying:
"This drone has a problem with flying away uncontrollably."
_
"It is more challenging to fly with no GPS so I generally just avoid doing so (though have on occasion)."
_
"I read negative reviews about this product but after lots of flying and crash a lot too , one thing you do every time you fly is to make sure all firmware versions are up to date and always calibrate or make sure you get more than the minimum satellite needed to fly the drone."
_
"But I believe DJI should have more training video in details what to do in the case of fly aways, low battery, setting menu, gps issue, the proper way of setting your home location, how to active fail safe system, where not to fly, and etc."
_
"I have owned this for 7 days now and only missed one day to fly due to heavy rain all day."
_
"It is not easy to fly like advertised."
_
"Excellent product, been flying it for a year and it has performed great"
_
"While I wouldn't call myself an expert, I am pretty smart and have flown this copter many times with no other issues except this one so its not user error."
_
"Happy Flying! "
_
"v=1cxrOPuEScYFirst off I'll start with explaining how if you're not an experienced pilot, it's not a problem but do not start flying unless you're in an area without trees, and other objects that you may crash into."
_
"Works Well, flies like a dream."

Video

Video:
"The 3 axis gimbal on the P2V+ is MUCH MORE DELICATE AND SUBJECT TO DAMAGE, BUT IT YIELDS SIGNICANTLY BETTER VIDEO."
_
"Video Quality: It's good, but not great."
_
"Loads of fun, takes great video and pics."
_
"ConsThe memory card that comes with the device doesn't hold much memory, only around 3 full charged videos so I would recommend getting a bigger memory card from the start."
_
"Unfortunatly for me I was out shooting in an open field with no eletric wires around doing a beautiful still and movie and the unit simply fell out of the sky and into a stream."
_
"Steady and great video quality."
_
"It's pretty amazing how the videos come out rock-solid stable as the quad itself rocks in place to fight a gusty wind."
