Turn Your Phantom Into A Phavic
” Your DJI Phantom 3 can now be converted to a DJI Mavic like quadcopter with the “Phavic” conversion kit. This drone kit was covered by WeTalkUAV back in January, but the kit is now officially available. If you have a damaged Phantom 3 or if you wish to have a more stable quadcopter, then this kit is something to consider.
The Phantom 3 Standard, Advanced, and Professional drones are all supported by the new conversion kit. The Phavic kit comes with a new body whose arms fold in like a DJI Mavic, so it is slightly more portable than the stock Phantom 3. Before you buy this kit, make sure you are willing to disassemble your Phantom 3. Also be warned that doing this conversion will void any warranty with DJI. You will need to know how to solder and follow directions because it might take a few hours to fully convert the Phantom 3.”
” The shell is about 143 grams heavier, but it is insanely durable! You don’t have to worry about getting cracks or breaking your drone because the Phavic shell is tough; it stayed in one piece even after a car ran it over. The flight time does decrease with this kit; you can expect about 15-16 minute flights with the stock battery according to a user review on YouTube. Just like with any drone, flying it aggressively will reduce the total flight time, so that may have been a factor. You can run a dual battery mod with the shell, but the batteries have also been reported to reach higher temperatures. The Phavic will also change the way the Phantom 3 flies since it is more DJI Mavic like, and you can still hand catch it. It is also quieter and more stable in flight compared to a stock Phantom.”
