DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter

If someone on your holiday shopping list demands the best of the best, maybe you shouldn't be buying for them. But if you do buy for them, the DJI Phantom 3 Professional is right up their alley.

The Phantom 3 Professional comes with a 4K UHD video camera and can live-stream to YouTube and can take 12-megapixel photos. It can fly for about 23 minutes and can be controlled with the DJI GO App.

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional is pricey at $1,259, but like in most cases, you get what you pay for.

The Phantom 3 Professional, and all other Phantom models, will be updated in Dec. 2015 with DJI's new geofencing system called Geospatial Environment Online (GEO) that will help keep these drones out of restricted flight areas.
