DJI Phantom 4 Pro Hands-on Review
DJI Phantom 4 Pro review. I have a Phantom 4 Pro prototype and have tested the camera and flight and here is a full review. I compared the photos and video to a phantom 4 v phantom 4 pro. See them side by side as well as learn about all the new features.
I have been fortunate to be testing a DJI Phantom 4 Pro, prototype and got to put it through its paces. I’ll just cut to the chase and tell you the big news. The Phantom 4 Professional has a completely new camera with a new sensor. It can now shoot 20mp photos and shoot 4k video (60fps) at 100 mb/s. It also has 360 degrees of obstacle avoidance and comes with a built in screen on the controller.
Note: the Phantom 4 Pro uses the same batteries and props as the original P4. There is a higher capacity battery available, but the original P4 batteries work just fine too.
At first sight, it looks just like the Phantom 4. But on closer examination, you can see read and sider sensors as well as the downward and front sensors. These all work in tandem to produce forward, backward and downward stereo vision. Get this, the new front and rear sensors can see up to 30m (about 100 feet). This enables the P4P to see and recognize objects in it’s flight path and to track or avoid objects and obstacles. It also has side IR sensors that can detect obstacles from 7m (23 feet). Because of this improved obstacle avoidance, it can now fly up to 31Mph with obstacle avoidance on (P-mode). This is up from 22mph on the Phantom 4. Top speed is still 45mph in sport mode.
