Buy DJI Phantom 3

If you read the title of this article you may be wondering why anyone would you want to buy DJI Phantom 3 now that the DJI Phantom 4 has been on the market for several months already.

And if you are, given the history of DJI’s upgrades (Phantom 1 to Phantom 2 brought major improvements as did Phantom 2 to Phantom 3), that’s a fair question. Especially as DJI has once again brought new improvements to the Phantom 4 (see Phantom 3 vs Phantom 4, which one is better and DJI Phantom 4 – Everything you need).

Before we go on, if you’re new to drones and you are here because you are wondering if the Phantom 3 or the Phantom 4 is better as a first drone, read this article first.

Back to the topic at hand.

Improvements

Yes, the Phantom 4 has several improvements over the Phantom 3. If not there would have been no reason to put it on the market at all.

But the improvements that DJI has made this time are not as big as they have been with earlier upgrades. We’ve even published an article (“Forget about the DJI Phantom 4“) in which we explain why we think it’s not worth upgrading to the Phantom 4 for a lot of Phantom 3 owners. You might want to go ahead and read that first. We’ll wait for you here.

Sure, if you have an unlimited budget go ahead and get the Phantom 4 anyway by clicking here. But if your budget is limited, definitely consider the Phantom 3 instead.

After all, from experience we can tell you that when you buy a Phantom you will inevitably end up buying other things. Items like extra batteries, a backpack and/or case and other accessories will be next on your list because you’ll like want to fly more and keep your Phantom safe during transport.

Accessories

So let’s have a quick look at the first 5 accessories out of our top 10 and at how much they cost:

Pelican case

$229

PolarPro ND Cinema Series

Total

$505.98

$425.97

This means the total bill for the Phantom 4 will be closer to $2,000 ($1,904.98 with one extra battery or $2,063.98 with 2).

A big difference when you realize you can get a drone that’s almost as good for only 2/3 of the price. And, $2000 is more than quite a few people can afford.

Aside from that let’s not forget that the DJI Phantom 3 is an awesome piece of technology in its own right.

It shares a lot of its features with the Phantom 4 has as well and some others (like ActiveTrack) can be replicated with 3rd party apps.

And when DJI released the Phantom 3 it was way ahead of the competition. Even today it is till far ahead of  many products that DJI’s competitors have put on the market.

So there is no doubt that, even though it’s not the latest, it’s still one of the better quadcopters currently on the market.

Yes, the Phantom 4 is the current market leader and the best consumer drone that DJI has released. But, the Phantom 3 is not that far behind.

Conclusion

When (after reading the previously linked articles) we take everything into consideration, it can indeed make sense to buy the Phantom 3 instead of the Phantom 4.

If this is the case for you, we’ve already done some of the work to make things easier. At the bottom of this article, we’ve included links that show the best prices we found for several countries (at the time this article was written). However, to find the most current price or to see if you can find a better price, you can also check to see what offers are available on Amazon.

If you want to know why we like the Phantom 4 so much just go ahead and read “DJI Phantom 4 – Everything you need” first.

And if after reading this you decide that the Phantom 4 is the drone for you after all, you can get the DJI Phantom 4 here.
