DJI Phantom 3 Professional Vs Phantom 3 Advanced

DJI Phantom 3 Professional VS DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Version.

We at Quadcopters UK are often asked the differences between the DJI Phantom 3 Professional and Advanced, so we will summarise it in a simplified way.

The first difference is cosmetic and the differences are in the colour stripes and badge at the front. The Pro Version comes with Gold stripes and Gold Badge and says Phantom Professional, the Advanced sports silver stripes and a silver badge that says Phantom Advanced.

Really though the major difference is the DJI Phantom 3 Professional is equipped with a 4k Camera and you can see by the image below the difference in video size.

Both cameras are almost identical to look at the only difference is the resolution they shoot video at. One point to note is that both cameras shoot still images at 12.0mp resolution and now use the very popular Sony Exmor sensor. Both models come with a 16gb Memory card but they can take upto a 64GB and a recommended speed rating of class 10 or UHS-1.

So to sum things up below are the shooting modes for both models. 

Phantom 3 Professional

  • UHD: 4096x2160p 24/25, 3840x2160p 24/25/30
  • FHD: 1920x1080p 24/25/30/48/50/60
  • HD: 1280x720p 24/25/30/48/50/60

Phantom 3 Advanced

  • FHD: 1920x1080p 24/25/30/48/50/60
    HD: 1280x720p 24/25/30/48/50/60

Phantom 3 Professional vs Advanced Supplied Chargers.

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional is supplied with a 100w Charger and the advanced version comes with a 57w charger. This means slightly longer charging times but most users always have a few spare LiPos when going out flying.

So that’s really the only differences in the 2 models apart from the price.
