The price of DJI's Phantom 2 has dropped to $683 on Amazon, a savings of over $400. This iteration of the Phantom series, which already dominates the aerial cinematography game, builds upon the original with its gimbal system (H3-2D, H3-3D or H4-3D) for more stable shooting up in the air. The quadcopter currently on sale comes equipped with the H3-3D gimbal system.

You can see just how stable it is in this demo:

And here's a montage of some volcanic eruptions to show how the Phantom 2 performs:

With NAB just a few short days away, this sale makes one wonder if DJI is preparing to unveil something new -- the Phantom 3 perhaps? We'll just have to wait and see.

The sale is only going on for the next 14 hours, so if you're ready to buy, you might want to do it now.
