The DJI Phantom 4 Pro is the twin of the Phantom 4. While it may look the same as the older model, the Phantom 4 Pro has been equipped with technology that outsmarts its predecessor and the Mavic. It’s got a beefier battery, much better camera and obstacle avoidance from all sides.
The DJI Phantom 4 Pro is a sleek, white aircraft with aerodynamic lines, a magnesium core, and a sturdy plastic exterior. The dimensions of the drone are 28.95 x 28.95 x 19.60 cm and weighs 1.388 kg , so you will need to register with the FAA before your first outdoor flight. To control it you will have to be an advanced user.
The DJI Phantom 4 Pro is equipped with front and rear obstacle avoidance sensors and both Vision and infrared sensors on the side. The standard downward-facing Vision Positioning system is still included. This system gives the ability to the Phantom of nearly 360 degrees of obstacle avoidance and enhanced positioning. Front and rear sensors can detect obstacles from 30 meters away, and the side sensors are sensitive to only 7 meters. The Phantom 4 Pro can fly with a max speed of 31mph when the obstacle avoidance is enabled, so you can benefit from high-speed shooting in any direction, without having to worry that the drone will crash. If you want to go even more faster, you can switch to Sport mode, but you’ll need to be very careful as the obstacle avoidance deactivates. The max you can reach in this mode is the 45mph. The standard remote control looks alike to that of the Phantom 4, with a clip to hold your smartphone or tablet. DJI gives you the opportunity to run the DJI Go app. The Phantom 4 Pro+ ships with a remote with an integrated tablet, preloaded with the DJI Go app. The included tablet has a maximum brightness of 1,000cd/m2, which DJI says is bright enough for outdoor use on a sunny day. The Pro+ remote is equipped with a microSD card slot, so you can save images and video that you captured, as well as a GPS and a mini HDMI output port for live broadcast. The Phantom 4 Pro has the all of the advanced flight modes included in the Phantom 4 and Mavic Pro. These means that includes the ability to orbit subjects, follow the position of the remote, and repeat a recorded flight path over and over again. There are also some new like Narrow Sensing, Draw mode, Active Track, TapFly.
The camera is stabilized by a 3-axis gimbal. The Phantom 4 Pro’s camera sports a 1-inch image sensor. It’s roughly four times the size in terms of surface area, so both images and video have the potential to show significantly more detail. The field of view is slightly narrower than the Phantom 4. Stills are recorded at 20MP resolution in JPG or Raw DNG format, with video available at up to 4K quality at an ultra-smooth 60fps. You can use also rates at 30 and 24fps for shooting. The camera also adds aperture control (f/2.8 through f/11), so you won’t have to rely on neutral density filters to control your shutter angles. And it sports a mechanical shutter, which eliminates the rolling shutter effect that can mar video recorded by CMOS image sensors. The video bit rate has been improved as well. Footage is compressed at 100Mbps using H.265 compression, up from the H.264 60Mbps format offered by the Phantom 4.
The DJI Phantom 4 Pro is equipped with a 5870mAh 15.2V 4S battery. When fully charged, will give you about 30mins of flying. To charge it you will need about 3.5 hours . The battery only weights 468 grams
The DJI Phantom 4 Pro, I have to admit looks fantastic! The sensors that help to detect obstacles and avoid crashes, the new camera that has huge potential thanks to its larger sensor, are some of the features that are impressive. This drone is the dream of every fan.
