Introduction – DJI Phantom 3 Advanced vs Traxxas Aton

DJI Phantom 3 and Traxxas Aton Quadcopter are ones of the best drones available on the market, but let’s see which is better. DJI Phantom 3 costs around $1,000, while Traxxas Aton costs around $440. This is a big difference, so I need to make sure that you know the Aton quadcopter can’t be better than DJI Phantom 3, but let’s see if this difference deserves to be paid.

Both of these drones have 4 rotors, a Radio Controller and an application available on smartphones. DJI Phantom 3 can fly about 23 minutes, while Aton can fly about 20 minutes. But, Traxxas Quadcopter has a higher maximum speed( 22,4 m/s ) than DJI Phantom 3. The biggest difference between them it’s the absence of a camera on Aton. So, DJI Phantom 3 has a 12mpx camera which can take 1080p videos.

Camera solution

On Aton, it can be mounted a GoPro HERO4 camera, which costs around $400( so you can buy the Aton Quadcopter and this camera for around $850). This camera has 12mpx and you can make 1080p videos, it’s like the camera on the Phantom 3.

Conclusion – DJI Phantom 3 Advanced vs Traxxas Aton

Finally, I would choose the Aton Quadcopter. Yes, I know that can be more comfortable to buy Phantom 3 because you don’t need to buy camera separated, but also I know that $150 are money which can remain in my pocket and that’s more important for me.
