      Having flown a DJI P3 Pro for almost two years several things about the updated P4 caught my attention: 1. 20MP 1" sensor 2. lens array that can be focused 3. variable apertures from 2.8-11 4. Improved flight times through higher capacity battery The front, rear, sides and downward facing object avoidance system is icing on the cake. Opening the box you find that the necessary parts are neatly packed in a reusable dense foam case with carrying handle and latch to keep it closed. Updating firmware through DJI Assistant loaded on your PC or laptop took only minutes. While reading over the owners manual I charged the batteries having, bought a second battery along with the drone. The next day I was ready for a short 1 battery test flight. After confirming Home Point I launched the P4P and it hovered at about 15' as if it were on a pole. My P3P cannot do as well. Though the tap to focus procedure is kind of pain being able to focus the camera is a good thing. photos in dying afternoon light looked fine as did the 4k and 1080P video. Second test flight was to check evening shooting abilities. Hello Crashed Ice Tour. From a safe distance the drone launched flew and landed without any issues and the photos and 1080P video looked very good considering the only lighting was street lighting and the flood lights used at Crashed Ice event. Flight time was 15:11 when landed and motors off. Pretty good for using only 50% of the high capacity battery. After the batteries go through their break-in period I anticipate typical flight times in warmer weather to easily be in the 23-28 minute range depending on circumstance. A great drone for any one interested in photography or videography who wants to explore new points of view. There's a lot more to take into consideration with a flying camera before you even take it out of the case to fly starting with your FAA registration. Do it. Then set about dealing with trying to not crash into utility wires, trees, buildings, more trees, unexpected wind gusts, keeping a watchful eye for territorial birds and clearing a flight plan if you're close enough to an airport to have to make the call.. Then there's local, county, state and federal park regulations. Even with glitches along the way I believe the P4P is as good as it gets for an obtainable consumer drone that can deliver amazing photos and videos. Put one on your bucket list. Quick, before DJI introduces the P5 :)

      This was my first drone purchase and it has been worth every penny. I have had it for 2 months now and flying this thing is so much fun. I just bought it to mess around and to add a little production value to a video i help produce every year for a fundraiser. First off the learning curve is very easy. Although setting it up did take a little time (about 45 mins with the updates you need to make to the app and the hardware) I realize now that in comparison to other drones, it was a piece of cake! My friends got the star wars drones for Christmas and after I setup the phantom 4 i figured the little star wars drones would be easier. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! After almost 3 hours of trying to set up the star wars drones I gave up. It made me appreciate just how user friendly the phantom 4 truly is. I was debating whether to get the mavic or the phantom 4 however I went into the store and saw the video quality difference and the phantom 4 was a no-brainer. Im very much an amateur when it comes to photography and video, so i have to do more studying on how to get the right exposure but as far as flying, this thing is sooo sick and again very easy for beginners like me! I have flown it in great weather conditions but i have also flown it in windy conditions and at night time. The gimbal is incredible and it held up beautifully in the wind. The censors on this thing work pretty great most of the time, and there is an upgrade to this model that does allow for indoor flying, however the censor did fail me once indoors and it hit a wall (but it could have been the light grey color that might have seemed like just sky). Also, i flew it at night time and the censor didnt see the tree so i did a little bit of leaf trimming, but that was just shoddy piloting lol. I dont recommend flying at night time because its hard to see the image. I was a bit hesitant about having to use my phone as the screen, i thought the delay would be noticeable. I have a goPro Hero 3 and when ive used the gopro app on my phone to see the image, the delay is too annoying. BUT on the phantom 4 its not an issue at all. Battery life is okay, im sure they will get better with time, it says average time is 30 mins but im averaging like 23-25 with constant flying which is still more than enough time to film the shots you need with good planning. The battery life on the remote is great. I definitely recommend buying at least 1 extra battery. A great feature is that the app tells you what the battery life percentage is on the drone battery although it starts annoyingly beeping at 30% which i understand is important for people who fly it far away, but I always keep it in my sight so it is annoying. I havent tested the drone for distance so I dont know if it really is capable of flying the 4+ miles advertised, like i said i keep it within eye sight. My one complaint, is that I was pretty sure that when i was speaking with the DJI rep inside the BestBuy store, he mentioned that it had a manual zoom that i could control on the remote, but apparently there is no zoom so yeah, thats my only complaint. The propellers are great, like i said, ive hit a wall and trimmed some leaves but ive been using the same 4 propellers that came with the drone (there are a total of 8 propellers, but ive only used 1 set so far) and they are holding up great. I wish the insurance was a little cheaper, I would have bought it if it was a bit cheaper so I have to make sure i dont hit anything else lol. In summary, this drone is worth every penny! Great product by DJI!

      The DJI Phantom 4 Pro Has Been Ranked #1

      I have been flying drones for over five years now, and I've flown at least 15 different brands of drones. I am a professional drone cinematographer and a Production Manager for a Hollywood based production company. You WILL NOT find a better drone manufacturer than DJI. They are leading in professional sales and they've secured 80% of the drone market. EVERYTHING about DJI drones are better. 1) Reliability: I own three Phantom 4 Pros, and no problems yet 2) Maneuverability: You can capture stunning footage with the Phantom 4 Pro's full size 1" imaging chip. ONLY DJI has a full size 1" imaging chip, which allows the camera to capture noiseless, pristine footage in the evening and night. The Phantom 4 Pro's camera is exponentially better than that of its competitors. The 1" imaging chip in the P4P is THREE times bigger than the imaging chip in other 4K drones. THE IMAGING CHIP IS SUITED FOR PROFESSIONALS (Do your research!) 3) Automated (smart) modes offer stunning features such as terrain follow, object follow (from any direction), orbit, waypoints, and many, many more. 4) REMOTE CONTROL RANGE: Over FOUR miles. No other company can even come close to this distance. I get pristine, low-latency live HD feed from the camera, which is mounted on a high quality 3-axis gimble. 5) Battery Life: On a casual flight on a fairly calm day, my batteries last about 27 minutes. I have five batteries for each drone. When the battery life is getting low, it automatically calculates the battery power needed to get back to your takeoff location, making sure you won't lose power on your return flight. 6) Used in actual "Hollywood" movies. The Phantom 4 Pro is the top of the line consumer model from DJI, but its camera can compete with their professional series drones and still look darn good. I filmed multiple scenes with the Phantom 4 Pro for the movie "Darkness Reigns", which will be in theaters in mid 2018. The footage looked spectacular on the movie screen at the premier. 7) Price: You are getting a drone that will outperform EVERY OTHER consumer drone. I've tried the other brands, and in comparison to the DJI, the other brands are cheap toys. Spend a little extra and you will not be sorry. Note: If you are serious about getting good footage and reliability, DON'T use a cheap tablet to control this drone. Don't use your phone. The processors in most phones and tablets are too slow to adequately process the information being transferred from the remote to the drone. FOR FLAWLESS PERFORMANCE, buy an APPLE iPad Mini 4 with your remote. Don't buy a $200 tablet and expect perfect results. Buy the best, the iPad Mini 4, and you'll be set for life.

      A Review From Experience

      Posted
      wifinerd42

      I've had the Phantom 3 Standard, Phantom 4, and now have purchased the Phantom 4 Pro. Let me tell you, this is the Lamborghini of drones, and is an absolute joy to fly. I could talk for hours about this- but you'd primarily buy this drone for video quality over portability. It records 4k60fps at 100mbps with a 1inch sensor, which in nerd means that it captures much more detail in your videos than the standard 60mbps 1/2.3 sensor seen in the other DJI drones. However in my experience, I'd rather devote the 100mpbs to 4k30fps. If you don't need near-professional picture quality or would like something that fits in your pocket, buy the DJI Mavic Pro. It can fit in your pocket, and can shoot footage similar to the original Phantom 4, which is pretty good. It's surprisingly just as stable and has most of the same features (except 360 obstacle avoidance). But as I moved my up through the DJI drones, I've learned that I want the best, especially so that I am not disappointed later. For me, I would always think: "well if I had the Pro it would look this much better". If you think you'll think like that, get this drone. The caveat is that it is much more difficult to travel with it (as opposed to the Mavic), but the footage pays off in the end. Please make sure to buy an extra battery- otherwise, you'll be a little disappointed.

      Excellent camera - iffy software

      This drone was purchased to perform roof inspections - a task which it performs exceptionally well. I work in a coastal area and wind is almost always an issue, but the video output is rock steady, even when I get warnings that wind velocity is too high. Still photos offer exceptional clarity with the ability to stay 20+ feet away from the subject, while still being able to zoom in with great detail for cropped photos. Battery life is very good in still conditions, but windy conditions generally allow for only 15 or so minutes of flight time. I haven't tried advanced tracking and autonomous features yet. One issue is the software. I was forced to buy this drone as a "replacement" for another Phantom 4, when I needlessly upgraded the firmware on the previous unit, because of the software's constant prompting me to do so, and it rendered the remote video feed useless. The factory did repair the unit free of charge under warranty, but it took 3 weeks. Unacceptable for a work tool. So far, I've ignored the prompts to upgrade my software on this drone and it has performed well. Word of advice - don't upgrade the software without absolutely needing to, and reading the DJI forum first. I didn't, and now have two drones as a result.

      Amazing device for photography enthusiasts

      I did quite a bit of research prior to purchasing the DJI Phantom 4 Pro. I started out with a Phantom 3 4k and was getting such great results with it and enjoyed piloting it so much that I decided to get the model with more options and features. I was, and continue to be, very happy that I did. A few things you should know: 1) You may not fly in national parks or within 5 miles of an airport. 2) This drone shoots video in amazing hi definition up to 4k. But do you have a TV or device that can actually view 4k? I still don't and wish I did. You can use the drone and shoot in lower resolutions, but then you are not using what you paid for. 3) DJI offers insurance to help in case you crash the drone, which, let's face it, is likely. I crashed my Phantom 3 4k and did not have the insurance. If you get the Phantom 4, I highly recommend getting the insurance to help pay for repair or replacement. 5) The Phantom is a delight to fly and looking at the video afterwards is breathtaking. If you have the budget and patience, I couldn't recommend it more for the photography enthusiast interest in exploring aerial videos and stills. I am extremely happy and often amazed by the Phantom 4 Pro.

      DJI Phantom 4 Pro - Very Impressive Drone

      After recently getting into the hobby, I decided to invest in the Phantom Pro 4. I started with the Mavic Pro, but was not impressed with the video quality in comparison to my neighbors Phantom 3 Advanced. I returned the Mavic and purchased a used Phantom 3 4k, in error and then a used Phantom 3 Pro. I then decided that I wanted to invest in a new Phantom 4 Pro for piece of mind so I sold the Phantom 3 4k and 3 Pro. This was the best decision I could have made. The quality, reliability and stability of this Phantom 4 Pro drone blows all of the other ones out of the water. The out of the box automatic camera settings produce some of the best images I've ever seen. Playback of 4k footage on any high resolution screen is simply just amazing. I've been flying for a couple of months now and my best video shots are over large bodies of water. I have a lot of confidence in this drone. It took quite a bit of long distance land flights to get my nerve up for water flights, but now I have no hesitation about it, because I trust this drone. As long as you have common sense when flying, this drone will do everything it can to prevent you from crashing it. It's simply amazing and definitely money well spent. I would highly recommend this drone for anyone just getting into the hobby!

      I read about every review I could find before buying a drone. These reviews spoke highly of this DJI Phantom 4 Pro. I am very happy with this drone for a number of reasons. First the camera is of prime importance to me since I did wedding photography before and now pursue photography as a hobby. The 20 mb camera provides excellent jpg or raw images as well as 4 k videos. These live up to my expectations and then some. The drone has a number a automated flight features that I haven't even tried yet but just with the flying I have done the features I have used are great. One of the best things is its ability to hang still once you take your hands off the controls. This leaves the drone practically totally still making it easy to take still photos. With control buttons you can change many camera settings or leave it on automatic. You can switch from videos to still shots easily. You can set reurn to home elevation that it will fly at returning to the exact spot you took off from when you press a button to get it back. Then it will land automatically and then turn off its Motors. Automatic obstacle avoidance is another great feature. There are many other things I could elaborate on but I'll end by saying it's one great drone and quite easy to fly. It a lot of fun. Get one or more extra batteries but be sure you get the high capacity ones.
