Pic. 1 – DJI Phantom 3 VPS – Visual Positioning System
The Phantom 3 Advanced and Phantom 3 Professional VPS (Vision Positioning System) consists of visual and ultrasonic sensors located in the underlying drone. This system allows the Phantom 3 to maintain its position in indoor flights (in the absence of GPS) and in low-altitude flights. If you have moving surfaces (such as sea waves) or the sensors are covered by additional supports, the drone struggles to maintain a stable position and tends to rise in height.
