DJI PHANTOM 4 Pro Review - The Best Drone?

DJI PHANTOM 4 PRO

 DJI PHANTOM 4 pro it’s one of the most popular drones on the planet and the revolution of Phantom 4, it’s packed with high-end features and functionality, and the latest models are always at the top of their class. On top of that, DJI also releases new models at a steady rate, packing even better features into a nearly identical form factor.



 The DJI Phantom 4 Pro redefines the iconic Phantom series, bringing imaging and intelligence to new heights. Its new camera equipped with a larger 1-inch sensor and the ability to capture 4K video at 60fps and while its FlightAutonomy system adds dual rear vision sensors and two infrared sensors for 5 directions of obstacle sensing and greater protection.

 Creators are also further empowered with a new suite of ActiveTrack and TapFly functions that makes complicated shots easier than ever.

An uprated camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4K/60fps video and Burst Mode stills at 14 fps. The adoption of titanium alloy and magnesium alloy construction increases the rigidity of the airframe and reduces weight, making the Phantom 4 Pro similar in weight to the Phantom 4.

 The FlightAutonomy system adds dual rear vision sensors and infrared sensing systems for a total of 5-direction of obstacle sensing and 4-direction of obstacle avoidance.

DJI PHANTOM 4 Pro -Design & Specs-

To go with the bigger sensor camera DJI also increased the maximum recording bitrate to 100 Mbps and give you the choice to capture video in MP4/MOV AVC/H.264, or the newer HEVC/H.265 codec. Above you can see footage recorded in the HEVC/H.265 codec. DJI claims that H.265 retains 50% more information than H.264, creating more detailed and vivid images. To my eye, it does seem to make a big difference, and I could clearly see more information in the footage recorded in H.265.
The other welcome addition is that the Phantom 4 Pro can use Micro SD cards up to 128GB in capacity, unlike the Phantom 4, which is limited to 64GB. The maximum ISO you can record video at has also been increased from 3200 to 6400.

 The Dji P4 Pro is identical to the original P4 in terms of both design and build quality. It retains the same hull shape as its predecessor, save for a few minor differences where the new sensors are placed. As such, it’s every bit as strong and sturdy as the P4, which remains among the most attractive and drones available.

 It’s impressive that DJI has managed to outfit the drone with so many new features, while still maintaining an identical form factor.

 The additional sensors have been tucked into the drone’s legs, while infrared and optical sensors are fitted into the drone’s left and right sides. Even the camera, which is drastically better than the one found on the original P4, is just a bit larger than it was before. Unless you familiar with DJI’s drones, the P4 and P4 Pro are identical, despite Phantom is numerous enhancement.

 The only downside to the P4 Pro is that, unfortunately, the Phantom line still isn’t nearly as portable as DJI’s Mavic Pro.

DIRECTION OF OBSTACLE SENSING

 Flight Autonomy is expanded with an additional set of high-resolution stereo vision sensors placed at the rear in addition to the pair placed at the fronts well as infrared sensing systems placed on the left and right sides.

 This network creates a total of 5-direction of obstacle sensing and 4-direction of obstacle avoidance, protecting the Phantom 4 Pro from more obstacles and giving filmmakers the confidence to capture more complex images.

CAMERA NAVIGATION SYSTEM
 Three sets of dual vision sensors form a 6-camera navigation system that works constantly to calculate the relative speed and distance between the aircraft and an object.
 Using this network of forward, rearward and downward vision sensors, the Phantom 4 Pro is able to hover precisely in places without GPS when taking off indoors, or on balconies, or even when flying through windows with minimal pilot control.

 In the unlikely event that front and downward sensors are unable to operate, the aircraft can still hover in place using the rear stereo vision system. The Phantom 4 Pro also is able to fly in complex environments at a flight speed of up to 31mph (50kph) while avoiding obstacles in its path. In Narrow Sensing Mode, the Phantom 4Pro narrows its sensing scope enabling it to see in more detail and fly through small spaces.

INFRARED SENSING SYSTEM

DJI PHANTOM 4 PRO

The DJI Phantom 4 Pro use an infrared sensing system. Placed on the left, and right sides of the aircraft, these measure the distance between the aircraft and any obstacles using infrared 3D scanning.

 When in Beginner Mode and Tripod Mode, these sensors have horizontal field of view of 70° and a vertical field of view of 20°, providing a wide view of the scene to the sides of the Phantom, and a maximum range of 23ft (7m). 

 Traditional ultrasonic sensors only have a detection range of 3-5m and may be confused when affected by propeller vibration. The infrared sensing system is able to sense larger areas and measure the distance between the aircraft, identifying the closest objects accurately while avoiding interference, providing more reliable sensing and protection.

Gesture Mode


Using Gesture Mode, selfies can be captured easily using a few gestures without the remote controller. Advanced computer vision technology allows the Phantom 4 Pro to take instructions through gestures.

 The subject simply lifts their arms when facing the camera and the aircraft will recognize this movement by locking on and placing the subject in the center of the frame. When ready for a photo, the subject holds their arms out to signal the aircraft. A three second countdown will begin, making time to strike a pose, allowing moments to be captured without the remote control.

Battery life and recharge time


Under optimal conditions, DJI says the Phantom 4 Pro can stay airborne for up to 30 minutes — but of course, real-world conditions aren’t always optimal.
To put these claims to the test, we ran the P4 Pro through our usual series of endurance tests. First up was a hover test, where we let the drone hover in place until the battery life became “critically low,” and the drone automatically landed. Our hover test lasted for 28 minutes and 8 seconds — which isn’t far off from DJI’s claimed 30-minute flight time.

BATTERY LIFE AND RECHARGE TIME

 Next, to get a sense of how long P4 Pro will last under more demanding conditions, we recorded the flight times from every other flight test we conducted and averaged everything out. Over the course of 10 different flights that spanned from 100 percent battery charge to the emergency low-battery automatic landing, the Phantom 4 Pro averaged a flight time of 26 minutes and 50 seconds.

 While you shouldn’t expect a full 30 minutes of airtime, the endurance is excellent – the best we have seen so far. A DJI Mavic Pro lasted 23 minutes and 19 seconds in our hover test, and the Yuneec Typhoon H lasted 23 minutes, 20 seconds. A smaller, more affordable, simpler drone will last far less than any of these. The Hover Camera Passport, for instance, lasted less than 10 minutes.

DJI PHANTOM 4 PRO PRICE IS 1450.00$
