If you are looking for the best professional drone or the best follow me drone then the DJI Phantom 4 Pro should be one you check out thanks, in large part, to the excellent obstacle avoidance system and the five mile transmission distance. With all these features, you\u2019ll wonder why the Phantom wasn\u2019t just included in the Mavic Series line as it is one of the top-rated drones.\n\n\n \n DJI Phantom 4 Pro \n\n\n\n\n\n\nCheck Price\n\n\n\n\nWhy We Like It \u2013 DJI Phantom 4 Pro\nThe DJI Phantom 4 Pro may be a departure from the flagship Mavic series for DJI, but this doesn\u2019t mean it\u2019s abandoned all the features that make DJI great. A high top speed and long flight time are just two examples. It may be a little heavier, but is three pounds really all that hard?\n\n\n\nPros\n\n\n \tObstacle Avoidance\n \t5 Mile Transmission Distance\n \tFantastic Image and Video Quality\n\n\n\n\n\n\nCons\n\n\n \tIt\u2019s Bulkiness Can Be Cumbersome for Some People\n\n\n\n\n\nSpeed\/Power\nThe maximum speed on the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is 45 miles per hour which is fast enough to cover a lot of ground. If you\u2019re confident in your piloting skills and want to go faster, try the DJI Inspire 2, but be aware that it\u2019s expensive. The Phantom 4 Pro also has a variety of intelligent flight modes, and obstacle avoidance, so you can confidently fly without worrying about damage to the drone. If you are a novice then you should take a look at our Dji Spark Fly More Combo review.\nRange\nThe Phantom Pro 4 provides up to 30 minutes of flight time on a single battery charge. It\u2019s not the highest we\u2019ve seen, that title belongs to the Autel EVO Drone, but it\u2019s still a respectable, and higher than average, amount of time. The Phantom 4 Pro may earn distinction as one of the best drones for its transmission system too. Thanks to OcuSync 2.0 technology a signal is transmissible as far as 5 miles. But be aware that most drone laws around the state a drone must be within 500 metres of its operator at all times.\nDurability\nCompared to other drones DJI offers, especially the DJI Mavic Pro series, the Phantom 4 is quite large and bulky. The drone itself weighs three pounds, and that\u2019s excluding any extra batteries or the even bigger remote. While I see this as a plus, because it means it\u2019s more stable in the air if conditions are less than optimal, I can understand how cumbersome it can be for others who want a simple, lightweight drone. Especially if you\u2019re going to be transporting it around a lot. For a much compact drone, check out the Dji Phantom 3 Standard review.\nCamera Features\nThe image quality on the Phantom 4 Pro is top notch and on-par with the DJI Mavic 2 Pro 4K Drone. The mechanical shutter provides more natural-looking video than a digital shutter because a mechanical shutter has no rolling. Speaking of video, the Phantom 4 Pro can shoot impressive 4K video thanks to its 20MP one inch sensor.\nValue\nDespite not being able to take full use of the OcuSync 2.0 technology, the wi fi at a mere 500 metres will be secure. The Phantom Pro, like all its brethren, is compatible with the DJI GO App. Just make sure you\u2019re installing the GO 4 app and not that standard one. The larger remote controller also means you can use your tablet to control the drone instead of your phone if you find tablets more comfortable.\nDJI Phantom 4 Pro Wrap Up\nThe fantastic camera means you\u2019ll get a return on investment for both advanced drone users and industry professionals alike. I double this drone would be an easy sell for a drone newcomer, but if you have the money and want to jump in head-first, this is an excellent drone to pick!
