Bruce Wallin: Interesting perspective for comparison of the DJI Phantom & the X830. The
information you put out is defiantly slanted to the X-830. Example is the
attempt to show the limits of the DJI Phantom for growth and no mention of
the DJI Phantom 2 with the Zenmuse Customized H3-2D and H3-3D Gimbal
Support. Next is the complete ignoring of the DJI Phantom 2 Vision
with Camera remote-control by DJI VISION APP & the Range Extender increases
Wi-Fi distance to 300m. Also the package includes a HD Video Recording
(1080/p30 or 1080/60i) camera. Then next model that you ignored is the DJI
Phantom 2 Vision+. That is a closer and fairer comparison to the X-830 in
that the Vision+ has a 3-axis Camera Stabilization Gimbal, max 700m Wi-Fi
Connection and a 14 Megapixels/1080p camera. Both DJI Phantom 2 Vision have
the capability to upgrade the gimbals and cameras. Needless to say not a
fair comparison. Makes one question you skill set & honesty.
Kevin Morrison: Was looking at some of your parts but not sure you are a company to deal
with. I normally have to search hard to find the bad about a company but
when all I do is type your name in Google and your site comes up first but
you share a page with ALL the other links about a customer you screwed
over. Thing is I checked a few of these and you obviously don't even care
because not a one is posted to by you to do any damage control! RED FLAG!!!
Gotta love the internet...;)
luishomeroremohsiul: can the x830 carry dslrs?
Randall Kelnhofer: outstanding
Eric White: I'm looking for a quad that will give me a range of 1km to 2km, fpv, gps,
camera mount/gimbal and at least 20 plus minutes of flight time any
John Clarke: Forget the Flags I Just think that for a comparison this was ONE BIG ADD
their was not One good point made about the Phantom and barley a word about
the Gaui which was I believe the first Multirotor to hit the market and
deserves respect for this point alone,and that Add sorry presentation also
never brought up anything but opinions as far as I believe not one rational
fact was brought to bare.
just a bit too amature for me to give you money!.HobbyKing is the Hobbiest
friend.....do your research and build....
Fly Safe Fly Hard FlyHeaps
Jack Heart: enjoyed the demo ,
this is the first I have heard of the Ace X830 , better late than never ,
is it just me or does it seem many demos are shot at sunset ,
does this activity attract vampires ?
just asking , , ,
Bond James Bond: The DJI Phantom isn't that good. In fact, a fews months ago, one landed in
my backyard from who knows where. After that incident, I started to do some
research and discovered that many people had found rogue DJI Phantoms which
appeared to have failed return to home function.
I would have been more than happy to return the DJI Phantom with GOPro Hero
3 to its rightful owner if I ever discovered who he or she is which is like
finding a needle in a hay stack.
David Lovas: You are just talking down on the phantom whitch means you don't like it...
DELBERT WILLIAMS: Hoi can I get those motors at and price Tony
keith8880: this might be a dumb question but i'll ask anyway, is there any way to get
live video from these helicopters if they aren't already stream live?
Young J. Choi: BTW, How do you rate about ARdrone? Thanks for the demos.
Christopher Hemmerling: You forgot to mention that the Phantom has self-locking nuts for it's
blades. Though the X830 does have keyed motors, and one would think that is
best, I'm sure there's a mod out there to fix that :-) They also have about
the same wobble that you mentioned on the DJI copter. Just sayin.
TheCamaro5: the best median between all is the tbs discovery.
Misterious: Can these carry a VHS camcorder?
WichitaMule: This is a very well done video demonstration of two interesting Quad
Copters. Thank you for this, and you've helped me make up my mind which one
to purchase. I'm fairly certain it's going to be the Turbo Ace X-830
Mark Spohrleder: Great video, but you forgot to mention the x830 is over $1000. More than
twice the price of phantom
banacek1970: I'll tell you something my friend, you are an excellent presenter ; you
should think of that as a career.....really well done mate.
David S.: Looking to get started into #aerialvideo using #multirotors ? Check out
this video that will guide you through the important points.
DJI Phantom, Turbo Ace X830 or Gaui 500 quadrocopter review
Encoded Muskie: this was well shot...
123321gauri: is the DJI Phantom good for a beginner? and it can carry a gimbal right?
arseni k: id get the phantom cuz the controller comes with it
RaDDx1968: When you make review comparisons between products, you compare within the
same price range, if one is 5 times more costly than the other, well, of
course it will be better and have more features. And always being concerned
about being able to go bigger and better is not always necessary. If you
have a product that performs well and does what you want, why the need to
get better all the time. Marketing gimmicks....
Chris Baldwin: I hate to be a party crasher BUT I think people should spend more time
researching safety and the rules of aerial photography and videography than
worrying about how much weight their copter can fly. I'm in the industry .
. . I own two copters and was one of the early adapters to UAV/UAS
platforms. While flying is great fun it is still illegal to charge money or
profit from using a copter. Why doesn't anyone ever post about insurance
or regulations? Looking forward to hearing from you.
Brian Michael: there is also a price difference of $3000
for under $500 you can get the dji phantom and learn on it.. so.. sure you
can upgrade on the X830.. but at that price.. might as well save a lil more
and buy a 6 rotor copter..
Josef Roesler: So you are saying that the DJI cannot support a gimbal and that the
propellers will fly off. That is amazing.
Why is it when you say a word that ends with th, you say F and when you say
a word that begins with th, you say D?
Mario Townsend: I live in the Hollywood area and would love to use my Phanthom to capture
alot of the city at night. I am very worried about what may happen if I
lost a rotor or something else bad happened and I caused an accident if my
chopper failed in flight. Does anyone have any info about how much
insurance would cost for a quad? I realize different factors would effect
metatron2332: I´m flying the phantom with the sony gw55 camcorder and mount it with four
jello free hair rubbers from my gf :-) under the landing gear. Payload of
camera and mount is about 260g so thats much more as a gopro and I got no
problem with the weight. Flight time is about 7min so thats not much but it
is very stable.
Thema inproblem: That was an excellent review. Would you recommend the Naza navigation
system for the Dji flamewheel 550? Thanks for the upload.
zimmy1958: nice comparison thanks Tony
masterpatricZeta3: do they have propellers not made by cheap plastic?like aluminum i do not
know, that is my main concern.
Scott Elder: Wow! Nice comparison/review. Thanks for the vid.
sundance2005: How does the Walkera QR X350 compare to the dji Phantom?
Gabe Cohen: will the x-830 carry a dslr?
Jon Lin: I don't think so. There are 3 different camera mounts meant for smaller
cameras like the GoPro, 5N, etc. However, their CineWings are guaranteed to
be capable of lifting a dslr, if not, a Red Epic! It should show the
varying options on the Turbo Ace website.
Jānis Andersons: Yes.
zemekiel: There's a "small" issue of price between the Turbo ACE X830 and the DJI
Freddy Palma: Tony now works for wow hobbies
John Gaarsoe: moviematcanada, I specifically chose the Ace X830, because it is more like
a traditional RC aircraft where you choose your radio equipment whereas the
DJI Phantom is preconfigured with it's own radio, and one that is fairly
short range at that. With the Ace X830, your range is only limited by the
radio you choose: A standard 2.4 Ghz spread spectrum radio would give you a
range of about a mile. The long-range UHF radio I have installed in mine
ostensibly has a range of 14 miles!
Mike R: Like comparing a Ferrari to a Festiva. next time, be more fair. I have the
X650 and it is awesome. the 12" props launches this beast in the air. With
FPV, jello bumps, andGPS/NAZA, I can go anywhere with confidence.
masterpatricZeta3: what about the 350qx?
Scooty9794: get yourself some Carbon Fiber Props. Nylon props are not made for arial
videography or heavy lifting. They tend do bend and even break in flight if
they need to lift more than the actual weight of the copter itself. Carbon
Props dont bend and are more efficient and also deliver more perfomance.
Viktor M: Cool! :))
Arnold Harns: The X830 is almost 5 times the price of the DJI.... I enjoyed your vid but
do not compare these two quads...
Plan C: Du Bro prop balancer. Turn the cone around for the side matching the top of
the rotor and then use the other cone normally. If you push it in with a
bit of force and wiggle it it will work. Then eyeball it just to be sure.
Novrizal Herdananto: wow, tony from nitroplanes..
sundance2005: How do you dynamically balance the dji Phantom motors?
sbcfilm: aluminum propellers are my main concern!!!!!!!!!!! goodbye fingers
G4 Gaming: the x830 has a $400 controller
multiplicity: The DJI has auto pilot and return to home and instant land when battery is
low and costs just under $500.00 at this writing. Does any of the Turbo Ace
line that costs upwards of $2500.00 have these features?
