About the Product
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.
The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1 and improves it. The image processing system CineCore2.0 has been upgraded to CineCore2.1, recording video at up to 6K in CinemaDNG/RAW and 5.2K in Apple ProRes when used with Zenmuse X7 camera. It goes from 0 to 50 mph (80 kph) in just 5 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 58 mph (94 kph) and has a max descent speed of 9m/s for unheard of speed and agility in an aircraft this size.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
DJI Phantom 4 PRO Professional Drone
  • Amazing image quality for stills and video. Great low light performance. Easy to operate and difficult to crash. Very steady hover.
  • This is an awesome machine. Easy to set up, and configure; and a breeze to fly. It is everything it has been promoted to be.
  • This is a great drone to capture incredible images & explore!!
  • The range is awesome and that's what I've always wanted out of my drones. Good product and would buy again!
  • Some of the software has prompts in Chinese and could be more user friendly. The transmission system is not as robust as with the Mavic. Typically getting some signal drop out at 0.6 to 1 mile.
  • 28 mins flight time, though it's the best available selection in the market, I had to buy two more batteries
DJI Inspire 2 Drone
  • It has an awesome range and gps.
  • Not for beginners. Excellent platform. There are/were some battery issues but DJI is on top of it. This camera system IS a MFT system and therefore opens up new doors of capabilities beyond the Phantom series.
  • A fantastic drone for anyone serious to enter the prosumer market. Way more than just a toy.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
DJI Phantom 4 PRO Professional Drone
  • The build quality seems to be the best of any Phantom to date!
  • Very sleek design and the video showing it in use sold it!
  • This is such a wonderfully designed device for low altitude aerial photography and video.
  • I'm not one to just make lists, good and bad, this device isn't easy to fly, it isn't simple to setup, it isn't small, or light weight.
  • Build quality is amazing. The weight is substantial, it is a solid machine.
DJI Inspire 2 Drone
  • Its very durable easy to operate and you will not go wrong with this.
  • Dron isnt heavy and bulky. I can take it in me bag where i go.

What customers say about "Flight"
DJI Phantom 4 PRO Professional Drone
  • Easy to fly: the stabilization in P mode is amazing. The drone doesn't drift and has rock solid shots when hovering.
  • Intelligent flight modes -point of interest is great as you can control camera and distance while it orbits your shot.
  • The new P4 was unstable and the gimble was erratic in operation in perfect flight conditions. Flew for 1 hour 22 minutes... Went through 6 batteries and flight stability continued to degrade as did the gimble.
  • It has registered comming back home speeds up to 86 km / h. Nice camera and a very complete APP which is really easy to use.
  • Second time in flight, lost signal and had to go looking for it.
DJI Inspire 2 Drone
  • The performance is incredible and the flight time is greatly improved over the Inspire 1.
  • I had to returned issues with red propellers and I bought Phamton 4 pro.
  • It is also VERY touchy compared to the Phantom 4, i know all these settings can be tuned but out of the box i just feel this should run much better.

What customers say about "Features"
DJI Phantom 4 PRO Professional Drone
  • Smooth Cinematic Shots: I shoot in 1080P60FPS and get smooth shots not only high up, but close to the ground. You aren't limited to a camera slider, or crane, and have all the control in your hands to frame the perfect shot.
  • DJI Go App records video to your device that you can edit and share in app. Great stuff. User friendly. Intuitive
  • The photo and video quality is superb and unmatched at this price. It has so many smart features. There is a beginner mode that helped me learn very quickly. Highly recommend!
  • Unbelievable functions set, obstacle avoidance, visual & sonar positioning, GPS tracking and navigation, auto go back home, etc all features executed exactly as the manual indicates
  • Although there are a lot of options and customizable features you dont need to do much to just jump right in.
DJI Inspire 2 Drone
  • I am upgrading from Inspire 1 and all I can say is that although very expensive its worth it if you're looking to make some good looking videos.
  • If you want the ability to change lenses and have an amazing camera then this is your drone. Pair this with the X5S and you will have a blast out there flying while taking pictures and videos.
  • You can't go wrong with this. Great for commercial use.
  • The only issue I've had is with the propeller mounts which have a little play. I was able to fix it myself with some foam and paper shims inside the propeller but I hope dji has addressed the issue soon.
  • I am 47 years old and have yet to see worst customer service in my entire life. I have talked to three dozen people there and have written over five dozen emails. I have had nothing resolved and continuing problems that have caused other additional multiple problems.
