Introducing Try Before You Buy

Pilot operating Pantom 3 Drone

Starting 01 June PhantomFlightSchool are excited to announce the launch of our unique Try Before You Buy programme.

We hummed and haahed for days before we finally decided to take the plunge and spend more than £1,000 on a DJI Phantom 3 Pro. We couldn’t be happier with the choice we made. We are so impressed by it that we have decided only to stock DJI products from now on.

If you’d like to find out just how easy and enjoyable it is to fly the DJI Phantom 3, and just what amazing aerial stills and video footage can be captured by anyone whilst flying one, our Try Before You Buy sessions are for you. Bookable in 15 minute slots, at a cost of just £25, you will be given the controls of a DJI Phantom 3, with an expert, CAA-approved commercial camera drone pilot by your side throughout. See the TBYB section of the website for more details of locations, and to book a slot directly from the website.

Available from 01 June at seven locations around England: London; Cambridge; Chester; Harrogate; Manchester; Oxford; Sevenoaks.

PhantomFlightSchool chooses DJI Camera Drones

Phantom 3 Drone

PhantomFlightSchool announces intention to focus only on selling camera-drones made by DJI.

We remember when we first started looking at camera drones that we were a little overwhelmed by the range of manufacturers, prices, camera choices and so on available to us. As well as the amount of quite technical stuff there was still left for us to do if we purchased some of the products on offer. Would something costing £100, or something costing more than £1,000, be right for us? Should we buy a drone made by Blade, 3DR, DJI or someone else?

It took us a number of false starts, some of them expensive, before we found exactly what we were looking for. The DJI Phantom 3. Having tried camera-drones made by other companies, we were instantly struck by the ease-of-use and construction quality of the products made by DJI. If Apple made camera-drones, this is how we think they would look. Beautiful to look at, and genuinely ready-to-fly straight out of the box, we were stunned by what DJI have achieved with the new Phantom 3.

Incorporating technologies that in April 2015 would have set you back around £3,500, and would have required a lot of leg work from you to bring together, the Phantom 3 is the complete package. With the entry level version on sale for just £899. It is the perfect complement for the professional-grade Inspire 1.

So, we have narrowed our product range, and got rid of the clutter. We only sell DJI products, because we think they are the best on the market.
