The DJI Phantom 4 Pro v2 now has upgraded flight time to 30 minutes which are provided by the new ESC and motors, as well has being 4DB quieter than the original Phantom 4 Pro. The main feature of the V2 is the OcuSync transmission system which improves the resolution and lowers the latency, this also makes the DJI Phantom 4 Pro compatible with the new DJI Goggles Racing Ediiton.
The upgraded camera is made from eight elements arranged in seven groups. It’s the first ever DJI camera to use a mechanical shutter which helps remove distortion of fast moving subjects or static objects when flying at higher speeds.
The camera is now just as powerful as traditional ground cameras. The video processing power supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H265 4K at 30fps, both containing a 100Mbps bitrate. And thanks to higher processors and sensors everything captured with the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is higher detail for post-production than ever before.
The smart FlightAutonomy system has improved with an additional set of stereo vision sensors situated at the rear as well as the two placed at the front. The Pro also comes included with infrared sensing systems found on the right and left sides. Each one of these sensors provides obstacle sensing and avoidance ensuring a protected flight and giving filmmakers and photographers a confidence in their drone.
This new technology created from the ground up by DJI takes the Phantom 4 Pro to the next level. The feature is simple. You can draw a route on the remote controller screen and after that the Phantom 4 Pro will follow that route. This is ideal when a pilot may want to focus more on the video or photos rather than controlling their DJI Phantom 4 Pro.
Standard: The aircraft follows the route at a constant speed with the camera facing in the direction of flight.
Free: The aircraft only moves along the route when instructed. In this mode, the camera can face in any direction during a flight.
Another new feature of the Phantom 4 Pro is its reverse tapfly mode. It allows you to take aerial selfies by clicking the built in screen or mobile device on the controller.
TapFly Forward – Tap to fly in the selected direction
TapFly Backward – Tap to fly in the opposite direction of the tap, i.e. tap in the bottom right corner of the screen to fly backward towards the top left.
TapFly Free – Lock the forward direction of the Phantom without locking the camera direction allowing it to turn as it flies.
*Obstacle Avoidance is not available with TapFly Free
To help make the Phantom 4 Pro more reliable, dual compass modules have been introduced along with dual IMU units. These sensors help guarantee stable flight using the data provided from both the IMU units and compass modules. The advanced algorithms use this data to check accuracy, with inaccurate data discarded without affecting flight.
