DJI Phantom 4 Drone Review! Is It Worth The Upgrade From The Phantom 3?!
► Phantom 4 (Amazon): http://amzn.to/1UI9Bcw
This is the brand new, DJI Phantom 4! It's packed with a ton of cool new features, like ActiveTrack (live object tracking), TapFly (just tap on the screen and it will smoothly fly in the direction), Object Avoidance (will auto prevent crashing into objects with forward facing sensors), and my favorite: Sport Mode! It feels like a jet fighter, I've been able to go over 50mph!
Overall design has been improved, more sleek, shiny, and sexier. A great simple design improvement are the new Push-and-Release propellers. Very quick and easy to place on or off. It also has built-in redundancies, with dual compass modules and dual IMUs, allowing much safer flight. Any "incorrect data can be isolated and ignored without ever affecting your flight."
The larger battery, is 5350mAh, with flight times up to around 28 minutes!
The included gray styrofoam is a great carrying case, with rubberized handle, locking mechanism, and everything fits tight and snug for safe transportation.
The camera module is the same as the Phantom 3 Professional, but they upgrade the lens/glass, plus the gimbal has been improved with greater stability. I can still capture 4K UHD at 30fps, but as a new feature, I can capture 120FPS at 1080p! Ultra slow-motion which looks awesome. Max video bitrate is 60Mbps, and RAW DNG stills at 12MP.
My top two favorite features:
1. Subject Tracking. With a simple tap or outline the subject on the screen, the Phantom 4 will automatically track and follow the subject, no GPS wrist-strap or remote control needed. In my tests this worked awesome! As an added bonus, if I strafe left or right on the right stick, the Phantom 4 will orbit/rotate around the subject while keeping the video centered on the person/object.
2. Sport/Speed Mode. They rate it up to 45mph (72kph), but I was able to go even faster, around 51 miles per hour! It's crazy fast, and a ton of fun. I can't wait to get my FPV goggles hooked up, this makes a perfect introduction into the FPV Drone Racing world.
