      Very good beginners drone

      Posted

      I had this drone for 3 weeks, multiple flights and do recommend. It came with the latest firmware so no updates were required before flying. It did not come with a micro SD card, a little disappointing, so I purchased a 64gb uh1 (HD) card. I formatted the card on my LG OLED 4K TV, required if you want to play the videos on this TV. It is sort of a catch 22 because it will play on the TV but my apple laptop does not recognize the file type and won't open to play the video. If you want to play on your home laptop, etc. format using the DJI app. I use Litchi for controlling the drone when I want to fly waypoints, you can pre-select your route. If you use the DJI app you have to fly the route and record, seems like a waste of time to me. The DJI ground station app should also work but I didn't test. There is some video latency, when flying, using an ipad but that could just be caused by the area I live (it does not show on recorded video). The video quality when playing back off the card, to me, seems excellent. I do not shoot video as anything other than a hobbyist so those with a higher level of video knowledge would be a better reviewer as far as that. I haven't had any issues to date and recommend the P3SE. Right now it is $100 more than the P3S so it's worth the price. If the P3S drops to $350 or so it will be a tough choice. To me it is a beginners drone and serves this purpose well. That said you still need to read and understand the manual (beginner mode, altitude and distance limits, etc)

      Easy to fly minimal support

      Very nice for the price and easy to fly. A few hiccups which should be mentioned for new owners. DJI has minimal support for this drone. The firmware updates are done through the app, they are not on the website. In order to do the update you must have a mini sd in the drone which it does not come with. You have to disconnect from the drone and use your internet to download the firmware through the app then reconnect to the drone to update it. Videos which are captured go to your device and are stored on the mini sd card in the drone. There is a lot of tearing in the ones on the device but the ones stored on the card seem to be ok. In order to fly over the set minimum range you must take it out of beginner mode and make your adjustments in the app. A second and 3rd battery is a must if you really want to enjoy this. Anyone wanting to purchase accessories such as skins this is considered a phantom 3 standard due to the shape of the remote otherwise it is the same as the p3 pro and advanced in shape. If it wasn't for the support I would have given it 5 stars.

      I did a lot of research prior to purchasing this drone. At first I going to get the Parrot Bebop 2 but then decided to return it and spend a little bit more to get a solid drone that would last me for some time. I would not recommend getting a cheap drone (as in sub $100-200 ones). You will outgrow them fast and honestly it's not necessary to learn how to fly those prior to flying the Phantom 3 SE( the Phantom 3SE is much easier to fly). In terms of purchasing a DJI Drone I would recommend this for beginners like myself. The range is improved compared to the standard/4K Phantom 3. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the lightbridge communication that the Phantom 4/Mavik lineup have but I did not have any issues flying this drone at my parents home (they live in the suburbs).

      The drone is fun to use and can get unique vantage points. The 4K is at 30fps max which is still good for the price point. You have to register and fly safely. Since I live in a large city it’s hard to find good places to launch without driving far outside the city. The customer service was also very good. I had to reach out when I could not register my drone. They helped me quickly to get my care plan on the drone. Care is a must! It will replace the drone for the first year even when damaged.

      Super easy to fly

      I purchased the DJI 3SE to perform roof inspections on my rental properties. Super easy to fly and control. Takes great pics and video. The DJI-GO app takes some time to learn how to use, because the app can do so many things. The app is kinda complicated and no detailed user manuals. This review is of the drone, not the app. The drone is great, I see the potential of the app, just haven't learned it all yet.

      Fantastic Drone

      This drone has been fantastic so far. I have logged around 15 hours with it and can say that so far, it has exceeded my expectations. The camera quality is fantastic. I can also say that the durability is very high. I have had a few crash landings (completely my fault) and have been shocked to see it have no damage. It is super easy to fly as well.

      Great drone for the price. Technology is impressive but not perfect. User should be very familiar with all aspects of the drones functions since it's a matter of when, not if, something will go wrong and user has to act quick to avoid lost drone, damage or injury. User manual is lacking, but lots of online tutorials from users that help with the learning curve.

      I bought this for my Grandson. Originally, I just wanted to price one, but I saw his face when he saw them! I couldn't refuse. It costed a pretty penny, but my boy is worth it! The laws on flying drones in the area is my main concern, but when we took it out and flew it for the first time, my Grandson was estatic!!! Thank you!!!!!
