Version 2 of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro includes all the same great features as the original Phantom 4 Pro and boasts several enhancements including improved resolution for on-controller live-view streaming, enhanced connectivity, and more. Like the original, the Phantom 4 Pro Version 2 features a 3-axis-stabilized gimbal camera with a 20MP 1" CMOS sensor capable of shooting up to 4K60 fps video and photo bursts at up to 14 fps. It also utilizes the FlightAutonomy system, which includes dual rear-vision sensors and infrared sensing for a total of five directions of obstacle sensing and four directions of obstacle avoidance. Instead of Lightbridge, the Phantom 4 Pro Version 2 now uses Ocusync, which enables improved live video stream performance. Other notable enhancements include lighter props and reduced overall takeoff weight, wireless integration with DJI Goggles, and bolstered transmission power.
The DJI Phantom 4 Pro is the latest in the Phantom 4 series, which has been the standard by which quadcopters are measured since its introduction, and for many reasons. This line of maneuverable drones is competent in every area, with 4K video, image stabilization from a motorized 3-axis gimbal, long range, good flight time, high speed, precise placement, memory features, highly capable flight programs, and obstacle avoidance.
So what makes this Phantom 4 worthy of its “Pro” title?
Start with the camera. The Phantom 4 Pro is capable of 4K video shot at a fast 60 frames per second. That’s professional-level, TV-quality video that can be edited into smooth slow motion. The P4P’s camera shoots exquisite 20MP stills in 14fps bursts — twice that of earlier Phantom 4 models. And it’s all recorded through a pixel-packed 1-inch sensor.
The Phantom 4 Pro adds Intelligent Flight Modes and the improved DJI Go 4 flight control app. And there are more sensors for much safer — and more confident — flight. You’ll be more willing to go for the daring shot when you know you’re in total control.
