What are quadcopters?
You’ve probably already seen quadcopters in action, or at least seen YouTube videos featuring footage shot with these aerial drones. If you haven’t, a quadcopter is essentially a flying platform that you can attach a camera to, typically a lightweight action camera like a GoPro, although some variations come with cameras pre-installed. With four rotors and GPS tracking, the DJI Phantom 2 quadcopters are very easy to control, and anyone can use them to create awesome videos.

What’s a gimbal?
If you just bolted a GoPro to the quadcopter, you’d end up with some very shaky footage. A gimbal is an electronically controlled three-axis stabiliser that ensures that your video is smooth and looks professional. Our DJI Phantom 2 quadcopters come with or without gimbals, and you can also buy DJI Zenmuse H3-3D gimbals separately.

What can they be used for?
Thanks to their unique properties, quadcopters are ideal for action sports, but they are also invaluable tools for other productions, where they can be used get shots usually only possible with complex setups. Watch this very cinematic video created by Philip Bloom while on holiday in Thailand:
