System, and the Intelligent Flight Battery
10 © 2017 DJI All Rights Reserved.
Aircraft
Flight Controller
The Phantom 3 Professional’s flight controller features several important upgrades, including a new flight
mode. Safety modes include Failsafe and Return-to-Home. These features ensure the safe return of your
aircraft if the control signal is lost. The flight controller can also save critical flight data from each flight
to the on-board storage device. The new flight controller also provides increased stability and a new air
braking feature.
Flight Mode
Use the Flight Controller mode switch to change the flight mode of the aircraft, refer to the “Flight
Mode Switch” on Page 26 for more information.
Flight Status Indicator
The Phantom 3 Professional has Front LEDs and Aircraft Status Indicators. The positions of these LEDs
are shown in the figure below:
Aircraft Status Indicator
Front LED
The Front LEDs show the orientation of the aircraft. The Front LEDs glow solid red when the aircraft is
turned on to indicate the front (or nose) of the aircraft. The Aircraft Status Indicators communicate the
system status of the flight controller. Refer to the table below for more information about the Aircraft Status
Indicators:
© 2017 DJI All Rights Reserved.
11
Aircraft
Three flight modes are available. The details of each flight mode are found below:
P-mode (Positioning) : P-mode works best when GPS signal is strong. There are three different states
of P-mode, which will be automatically selected by the Phantom 3 Professional depending on signal
strength of GPS and Vision Positioning sensors :
P-GPS: GPS and Vision Positioning both are available. The aircraft is using GPS for positioning.
P-OPTI: Vision Positioning is available but the GPS signal strength is not sufficient. The aircraft is
using only the Vision Positioning System for positioning.
P-ATTI: Neither GPS nor Vision Positioning is available. The aircraft is using only its barometer for
positioning, so only altitude can be stabilized.
A-mode (Attitude): GPS and Vision Positioning System are not used for stabilization. The aircraft only uses
its barometer. The aircraft can still automatically return to the home point if the control signal is lost and
the Home Point was recorded successfully.
F-mode (Function): Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC) is activated in this mode. For more information
about IOC, refer to the IOC section in the Appendix.

Return-to-Home (RTH)
The Return-to-Home (RTH) function brings the aircraft back to the last recorded Home Point. There are
three types of RTH procedures: Smart RTH, Low Battery RTH, and Failsafe RTH. This section describes
these three scenarios in detail.
GPS
Home Point
Description
If a strong GPS signal was acquired before takeoff, the Home Point
is the location from which the aircraft was launched. The GPS signal
strength is indicated by the GPS icon (
). The aircraft status
indicator will blink rapidly when the home point is recorded.
Smart RTH
Use the RTH button on the remote controller (refer to “RTH button” on page 26 for more information)
or tap the RTH button in the DJI GO app and follow the on-screen instructions when GPS is available to
initiate Smart RTH. The aircraft will then automatically return to the last recorded Home Point. You may use
the remote controller’s control sticks to control the aircraft’s position to avoid a collision during the Smart
RTH process. Press and hold the Smart RTH button once to start the process, and press the Smart RTH
button again to terminate the procedure and regain full control of the aircraft.

When Critical battery level warning is triggered and the aircraft begins to land automatically,
you may push the throttle upward to make the aircraft hover at its current altitude, giving you an
opportunity to navigate to a more appropriate landing location.
The colored zones and markers on the battery level indicator bar reflect the estimated
remaining flight time. They are automatically adjusted according to the aircraft’s current location
and status.
Failsafe RTH
Aircraft
If the Home Point was successfully recorded and the compass is functioning normally, Failsafe RTH will
be automatically activated if the remote controller signal is lost for more than three seconds. The Returnto-Home process may be interrupted and the operator may regain control of the aircraft if the remote
controller signal connection is re-established.

if you move the throttle stick after the aircraft rises above 65 feet
(20m) but below the pre-set Failsafe RTH altitude, the aircraft will stop
ascending and immediately return to the Home Point.
Vision Positioning System
The DJI Vision Positioning System uses ultrasound and image data to help the aircraft maintain its current
position. With the help of Vision Positioning, your Phantom 3 Professional can hover in place more precisely
and fly indoors or in other environments where a GPS signal is not available. The main components of the
Vision Positioning System are located on the bottom of your Phantom 3 Professional; they include [2] two
ultrasonic sensors and [1] one monocular camera.
[1]
[2]
Using Vision Positioning
Vision Positioning is activated automatically when the Phantom 3 Professional is turned on. No
further action is required. Vision Positioning is typically used in indoor environments, where GPS
is unavailable. Using the sensors that are built into the Vision Positioning system, the Phantom 3
Professional can hover precisely even without GPS.

Aircraft
Aircraft automatically descends and lands if RTH is triggered when the
aircraft flies within a 20 meters (65 feet) radius of the Home Point. Aircraft
will stop ascending and immediately return to the Home Point if you move
the throttle stick if the aircraft reaches 20 meters (65 feet) altitudes or
beyond during Failsafe.
Phantom 3 Professional User Manual
Follow the steps below to use Vision Positioning:
1. Toggle the flight mode switch to P-mode.
2. Place the aircraft on a flat surface. Note that the Vision Positioning system cannot
work properly on surfaces without clear pattern variations.
3. Turn on the aircraft. The aircraft status indicator will flash green two times, which
indicates the Vision Positioning system is ready. Gently push the throttle up to lift off
and the aircraft will hover in place.
Aircraft
The performance of your Vision Positioning System is affected by the surface over which it is
flying. The ultrasonic sensors may not be able to accurately measure distances when operating
above sound-absorbing materials. In addition, the camera may not function correctly in
suboptimal environments. The aircraft will switch from P-mode to A-mode automatically if neither
GPS nor Vision Positioning System are available. Operate the aircraft with great caution in the
following situations:
Flying over monochrome surfaces (e.g. pure black, pure white, pure red, pure green).
Flying over a highly reflective surfaces.
Flying at high speeds(over 8 m/s at 2 meters or over 4 m/s at 1 meter).
Flying over water or transparent surfaces.
Flying over moving surfaces or objects.
Flying in an area where the lighting changes frequently or drastically.
Flying over extremely dark (lux < 10) or bright (lux > 100,000) surfaces.
Flying over surfaces that can absorb sound waves (e.g. thick carpet).
Flying over surfaces without clear patterns or texture.
Flying over surfaces with identical repeating patterns or textures (e.g. tiles with the same design).
Flying over inclined surfaces that will deflect sound waves away from the aircraft.
Keep the sensors clean at all times. Dirt or other debris may adversely affect the effectiveness
of the sensors.
Vision Positioning is only effective when the aircraft is at altitudes of 0.3 to 3 meters.
The Vision Positioning System may not function properly when the aircraft is flying over water.
The Vision Positioning System may not be able to recognize pattern on the ground in low light
conditions (less than 100 lux).
Do not use other ultrasonic devices with frequency of 40 KHz when Vision Positioning system is
in operation.
Vision Positioning System may not be able to stabilize the aircraft when flying close to the
ground (below 0.5 meters) at fast speeds..
Keep the animals away from the aircraft when Vision Positioning system is activated. The sonar
sensor emits high frequency sounds that are only audible to some animals.
Flight Recorder
Flight data is automatically recorded to the internal storage of the aircraft. This includes flight
telemetry, aircraft status information, and other parameters. To access these data, connect the
aircraft to the PC through the Micro USB port and launch the DJI GO app.

39
Flight
Once pre-flight preparation is complete, it is recommended that you use the flight simulator in the DJI GO
app to hone your flight skills and practice flying safely. Ensure that all flights are carried out in an open
area.
Flight Environment Requirements
Flight
1. Do not use the aircraft in severe weather conditions. These include wind speeds exceeding 10 m/s ,
snow, rain and fog.
2. Only fly in open areas. Tall structures and large metal structures may affect the accuracy of the onboard compass and GPS system.
3. Avoid obstacles, crowds, high voltage power lines, trees, and bodies of water.
4. Minimize interference by avoiding areas with high levels of electromagnetism, including base stations
and radio transmission towers.
5. Aircraft and battery performance is subject to environmental factors such as air density and
temperature. Be very careful when flying at altitudes greater than 19, 685 feet (6000 meters) above sea
level, as the performance of the battery and aircraft may be affected.
6. The Phantom 3 Professional cannot operate within the polar areas.
Flight Limits and No-Fly Zones
All unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operators should abide by all regulations set forth by government and
regulatory agencies including the ICAO and the FAA. For safety reasons, flights are limited by default,
which helps users operate this product safely and legally. Flight limitations include height limits, distance
limits, and No-Fly Zones.
When operating in P-mode, height limits, distance limits, and No-Fly Zones function concurrently to
manage flight safety. In A-mode, only height limits are in effect, which by default prevent the aircraft
altitude from exceeding 1640 feet (500 m) .
Maximum flight altitude & Radius Limits
Maximum flight altitude and radius limits may be changed in the DJI GO app. Be aware that the maximum
flight altitude cannot exceed 1640 feet (500 meters). In accordance with these settings, your Phantom 3
Professional will fly in a restricted cylinder, as shown below:

No-Fly Zones
All No-Fly Zones are listed on the DJI official website at http://flysafe.dji.com/no-fly. No-Fly Zones are
divided into Airports and Restricted Areas. Airports include major airports and flying fields where manned
aircraft operate at low altitudes. Restricted Areas include border lines between countries or sensitive
institute. The details of the No-Fly Zones are explained as follow:
Airport
(1) Airport No-Fly Zone are comprised of Take-off Restricted zones and Restricted Altitude Zones. Each
zone features circles of various sizes.
(2) R1 miles (value of the R1 depends on the size and shape of the airport) around the airport is a Takeoff restricted zone, inside of which take off is prevented.
(3) From R1 mile to R1 + 1 mile around the airport the flight altitude is limited to a 15 degree inclination.
Starting at 65 feet (20 meters) from the edge of airport and radiating outward. The flight altitude is
limited to 1640 feet (500 meters) at R1+1 mile
(4) When the aircraft enters within 320 feet (100 meters) of No-Fly Zones, a warning message will appear
on the DJI GO app.

How do I use the Director automatic video editor?
Director is an automatic video editor built into the DJI GO app. After recording several video clips, simply
tap “Director” from the app’s home screen. You can then select a template and a specified number of
clips, which are automatically combined to create a short film that can be shared immediately.
How do I change the control mode of my Phantom 3?
By default, the Remote Controller is set to Mode 2. This means that the right control stick controls the
movement of the aircraft and the left control stick controls the throttle and orientation of the aircraft. These
controls can be changed to Mode 1 or set to a customized configuration in the DJI GO app. This is only
recommended for advanced users.
Can I use a Phantom 2 Remote Controller with the Phantom 3?
No. The Phantom 2 Remote Controller operates on a different frequency. The Phantom 2 Remote Controller
operates at 5.8 GHz and the new Phantom 3 Remote Controller operates at 2.4 GHz.
Can I use a Phantom 2 Intelligent Flight Battery with the Phantom 3?
FAQ
No. The Phantom 3 uses a newly designed Intelligent Flight Battery with greater power. The Phantom 3 has
a 4 cell battery with a capacity of 4480 mAh and a voltage of 15.2 V.
My Phantom 3 does not turn off right away, is something wrong?
This is normal. After you attempt to power off the Intelligent Flight Battery, it may remain on for a few
seconds as any video data is saved to the Micro SD card. This helps prevent your data from being lost or
corrupted.
Do I have to buy the Remote Controller separately?
No, there is no need to buy a separate Remote Controller. Your Phantom 3 comes with a Remote Controller
that is already linked to the aircraft.
Does my Phantom 3 support dual Remote Controllers?
No. The included Remote Controller can be used to control both the aircraft and the gimbal tilt at the same
time.
What does the “P, A, F” switch on the Remote Controller do?
This switch, called the Flight Mode Switch, allows you to toggle different flight modes:
P-mode, or Positioning mode, indicates that both GPS and the Vision Positioning System are active and
your Phantom 3 will attempt to stabilize using both.
In A-mode, or Attitude mode, the aircraft does not use GPS or the Vision Positioning System. Only the
barometer is used for stabilization. The aircraft can still return to the Home Point as long as a sufficient GPS
signal is available.
F-mode, or Function mode, activates Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC) functionality. Refer to the IOC
section in the Appendix of the User Manual.
By default, only P-mode may be used. Refer to your user manual for instructions on unlocking the other
modes.

Battery is designed to provide up to 23 minutes of uninterrupted flight time when fully charged.
How can I restore a video file if the power is turned off during recording?
Do not remove the Micro SD card from the camera. If it has been removed, place it back in the camera.
Turn the Phantom 3 on and wait approximately 30 seconds as the video file is restored.
How can I ensure that my pictures and videos will be synchronized to my iOS album?
You may need to adjust the settings of your mobile device. Open the Settings menu, select the Privacy tab,
select the Photos tab, and then toggle the switch next to the DJI GO app icon. If the GO app has not been
granted access to your albums, the photos and videos cannot be synchronized.
What should I do to land my Phantom 3 smoothly as possible?
Hover the aircraft over a flat, level surface. Slowly pull the throttle stick down until the aircraft touches the
ground.
FAQ
Why is the discharge time of the battery not zero, even though I have never used it?
Every battery is tested prior to being packaged and shipped. This affects the discharge time of a new
battery and is the reason that the discharge time is not zero. The battery is safe to use.
Can the mobile device holder be used on the Phantom 2 series Remote Controller?
No, it cannot.
How to safely operate the aircraft when encountering compass error?
A compass error may occur when the aircraft is flying close to strong electric magnetic sources (e.g.
power transmission lines). Aircraft Status Indicators blink red and yellow rapidly when a compass error
occurs and the DJI GO app will display one of the following messages:
• Compass error, calibration required
This warning message indicates the aircraft is receiving abnormal compass readings. It is recommended
to power off the aircraft and re-calibrate the compass at a different location and then resume the flight.
• Compass error, exit P-GPS Mode
This warning message indicates that the aircraft is drifting severely. Bring the aircraft to a higher altitude
to gain enough GPS satellite locks when this warning message is prompted. The flight controller will
automatically adjust the orientation of the aircraft in the midair to mitigate the drifts. The aircraft will switch
back to P-GPS mode when the automatic adjustment is completed.
How to troubleshoot aircraft initialization error?
If you observe the following symptoms, it indicates the aircraft has failed to initialized:
• The aircraft status indicator display flashing red, yellow and green. Even the aircraft is stationed on the
flat surface.
• The System Status Bar in the app prompts “Initialization Error”.
• No resistance drive if felt on the gimbal.

51
Phantom 3 Professional User Manual
Various factors contribute to the aircraft initialization error, try resolve the issue by following the suggestions
listed below:
• Sensor performance degraded. This may be due to the excessive bias detected from the IMU or the
compass reading is interfered. Try restarting and calibrating the IMU and compass to resolve this issue.
• Sensor is defective. If the sensors remains unchanged at all time and the problem persist even when the
aircraft is restarted, it indicates the sensor is not working normally. Users should return the aircraft to DJI
for repairing.
• Minor vibration is detected during aircraft initialization. Put the aircraft on the flat surface, power on the
aircraft and ensure the aircraft is stationed for more than 5 seconds to resolve the issue.
• Serious vibration is detected during aircraft initialization. This instance generally occurs when the aircraft
is being initialization on the violent moving surface, for instance, ships that are on the rough sea. Do not
attempt to power on the aircraft in this scenario.
