About the Product
The DJI Phantom 4 is the smartest flying camera DJI has ever created. Able to fly intelligently with a tap, automatically create seamless tracking shots, fly intelligently over or around obstacles and much more. Flying has never been this easy or as much fun.
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.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
DJI Phantom 4 Quadcopter
  • DJI Go App records video to your device that you can edit and share in app. Great stuff. User friendly. Intuitive
  • For what it is worth, I have over 50 flights and 100 miles of flight time on my Phantom 4 now and I am still on the first set of props.
  • Longer flight time: I now get about 20 minutes before I get a low battery warning (30%), as compared to about 14 minutes with the Phantom 3.
  • The only thing I would of have like is for the batteries too last longer in terms of flying time.
  • Battery life is advertised as 28 minutes, yet real world will get 22-23 minutes tops (with gps off etc) With everything else on like you would actually fly it, count on about 20 minutes of real flying before you should land.
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

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
DJI Phantom 4 Quadcopter
  • Build quality is amazing. The weight is substantial, it is a solid machine.
  • This is a great drone, but the new Mavic Pro does the same and it's a 1/4 of Phantom 4's size... So, although I enjoyed the P4, the Mavic Pro is just unbelievably capable.
  • 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.
  • No description of size, manufacturer or anything supportive at all.
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.

What customers say about "Flight"
DJI Phantom 4 Quadcopter
  • Easy to fly: the stabilization in P mode is amazing. The drone doesn't drift and has rock solid shots when hovering. A new pilot can easily pick it up and learn without the nuances and risk of a RC helicopter.
  • Fun to fly in sport mode - it goes really fast! This is where you may actually crash it as you want to fly low and fast
  • 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.
  • Intelligent flight modes -point of interest is great as you can control camera and distance while it orbits your shot. Way points are smooth so you can focus on getting the shot after setting your points rather than flying the craft. Active track and follow modes are in the bad section.
  • I pushed the button to take off and it did, but instead of hovering as it should it immediately flew FULL SPEED to one side.
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.
