DJI Phantom 3

DJI has singlehandedly launched the drone market into the stratosphere. The DJI Phantom is instantly recognizable and synonymous with the word “drone.” It is nearly a household name. Just last week, we saw one at the center of a sequence on Big Bang Theory.

No green screens. No CGI cars. Just strap cameras to real cars and people and drop the cars out of an airplane.
