As we all probably know, in March 2015 DJI released the new quadcopter drone Phantom 4 with a lot of wonderful features, like tap to fly, visual tracking, obstacle avoidance, sport mode and a lot more, that can allow users to fly faster and more safely. This upgrade is more stable, more practical, and has a lot of new features versus the phantom 3. Unfortunately with the upgrade comes a big increase in price, with a retail price point of $1479 in the USA.
If you’re looking for a deal (and who isn’t!), now’s your chance. Gearbest offers it for $1399, but with coupon code JRDJP4 you can get your Phantom 4 for just $1349.
Phantom 4 Main Features:
Tap to fly
Just double tap and you’re up in the air while the new obstacle sensing system keeps your Phantom clear of objects in the way. With another tap, Smart Return Home brings it back.
Active-Track makes tracking a moving subject as effortless as a few taps. Turn on Moving POI to circle around your subject as they move or reframe your shot by dragging the subject on screen. No band or beacon required.
In the new sport mode, the Phantom 4 provides best-in-class flight control. Combined with its magnesium core designed for increased agility, it brings you the ultimate thrill of speed. Maximum speed is increased by 25 percent while all positioning systems are kept on for a safer, better controlled flight.
Extended flight time
With the most advanced propulsion system, a streamlined body and a larger battery, the Phantom 4 achieves a 28 minute flight time. This is a 25 percent improvement over the already impressive Phantom 3.
Revolutionary materials and enhanced agility
The Phantom 4’s magnesium skeleton reduces weight while keeping stiffness at a maximum to minimize vibration. The new core design lifts the center of gravity closer to the Phantom 4’s heart, improving balance, making it more agile and impressively precise.
Multiple flight modes
Switching flight modes to meet your needs, whether you are looking for simplicity and intelligent navigation, speed or smooth cinematic movements is easy.
Sense and avoid
Front obstacle sensors combine with advanced computer vision and processing to give the Phantom active obstacle avoidance that allows it to react to and avoid obstacles in its path.
High performance camera
Shoot sharp, clean video in up to 4K at 30fps and Full HD 1080p at 120fps for slow motion, through a newly designed lens that dramatically increases sharpness.
An advanced 3-axis gimbal takes out unwanted vibration and movement in-flight, enabling the camera to capture smooth and fluid footage even during complex maneuvers.
DJI GO APP
DJI GO APP is all you need to fly, create, share, and connect. Compatible with the Phantom series, Inspire series, Osmo and more.
