If you’ve ever dreamt of flying like a bird and taking in the sights only afforded to those of the winged species, then the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Quadcopter ($1,200) is what you’ve been waiting for. It’s a remote controlled quadcopter with a built-in 14 MP camera, allowing you to shoot 1080p video and take 14 megapixel still photos in superb quality, thanks to its CMOS 12-bit color depth sensor. Helping you achieve the perfect vantage point, the Phantom 2 Vision notes an integrated GPS system with auto-pilot functionality, allowing automatic position holding and altitude lock, while a live view from the Quadcopter’s camera and full camera controls are available via your iPhone and integrated Wi-Fi repeater. Lastly, ensuring your new toy doesn’t wander off with a flock of migrating geese, the Phantom 2 comes packed with an integrated “return to home” feature that’s automatically activated should you exceed the Quadcopter’s 300 meter range.
