“The DJI Phantom 4, it’s the first consumer unit that can see the world around it and adjust accordingly, the next big step towards a truly autonomous aircraft.” — The Verge , March 1, 2016
“Smarter, leaner, faster, stronger? That’s the promise with DJI’s Phantom 4 .” — Engadget , March 1, 2016
“This quadcopter can do something other drones can’t: keep you and me from being idiot pilots.” — The Wall Street Journal , March 1, 2016
The DJI Phantom 4 is the smartest flying camera ever created by DJI and the most advanced consumer drone on the market. The DJI Phantom 4 is a Ready-To-Fly aerial drone that has many intelligent flight features that stand out from the previous Phantom models. Various intelligent autonomous flight modes allow all skill levels to capture phenomenal aerial footage in 4K UHD Video and 12 MP Photographs.
This is DJI’s smartest flying camera ever, and its standout feature is the intelligent Obstacle Avoidance Sensing System which operates in real-time to prevent crashes before they occur.

Here’s a few videos of the Phantom 4 in action.
The biggest difference in the Phantom 4 over the previous models is the intelligence of the drone. With sense and avoid technology the Phantom 4 will avoid any obstacles in its path as it captures aerial footage, avoiding everything from tree branches to rocks, other people, or buildings.
Once you mount a mobile device such as a cell phone or tablet above the controller, the sense and avoid technology also allows you to select an object on the screen, such as a person and the drone will automatically follow that object while avoiding everything else in its path.
Getting started flying the drone is as easy as tapping a button with the TapFly function. Simply tap the button and the DJI Phantom 4 will lift into the sky and hover there, waiting for you to give it further commands. Single touch button functionality also automatically lands, and fail-safe loss of connection will land your Phantom 4 safely.
From here you can control the drone in 3 modes; intelligent navigation mode, speed/sport mode, and cinematic mode. Intelligent navigation mode allows you to program flight plans into the drone which the drone will execute while cinematic mode will allow you to capture sweeping aerial cinematic video, and sport mode will allow the drone to fly up to 44mph (72km/h) while avoiding obstacles.
A unique beginner mode for first-time pilots creates a GPS enforced zone that your Phantom 4 Drone must stay within using the DJI Phantom 4’s integrated GPS module. The autopilot function for more advanced flyers allows you to program flight plans for your DJI Phantom to fly on its own.
Once you are finished, landing the drone is as simple as tapping the “smart return to home” button. The drone operates via its reliable dual satellite, GPS and GLONASS, allowing the Phantom 4 to connect to satellites faster and avoid obstacles en route.
ActiveTrack has made follow-me functionality smart while operating in real-time alongside DJI’s sophisticated Obstacle Sensing System. With the tap and drag of your finger, designate a box of interest that the Phantom 4 will follow. Recognizing your person of interest, the Phantom 4 will naturally follow without any further input from the pilot. Your subject will always be in frame, and your cinematic video or pictures will demonstrate the exceptional difference.
The integrated HD camera shoots 4K UHD video at 30fps, video that is over 3 times as clear as the video on your HD TV. The camera also shoots slow motion 1080p video at 120fps or can capture 12 megapixel still photographs in either JPEG or Adobe DNG RAW format.
The built-in 3 axis gimbal along with the built in 3 axis u-frame structure camera stabilization system keeps the camera perfectly level as the drone banks and rolls to ensure your photos look sharp and your stunning aerial videos stay smooth in flight. The DJI Phantom 4 allows anyone to take stunning aerial photography.
With up to a 28 minute flight time, you will have more than enough time to capture stunning aerial photography and video from the sky while utilizing the DJI Phantom 4’s advanced features.
The DJI Phantom 4 controller features powerful 5.8Ghz transmission, allowing you to fly 3.1 miles, or 5 kilometers away with ease. In the event that the DJI Phantom 4 drone loses contact with the controller, it’s failsafe command will ensure the drone automatically flies back and lands at the point it took off from.
The onboard battery is a 5350mah lipo battery that will give the user approximately 28 minutes of flight time per charge. The intelligent battery pack tells you how long you can continue flying and alerts you when it is time to turn around and fly back.
The Phantom 4 Remote Controller has been ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in your hand, and controls all aspects of the camera in addition to the drone. Simply adjust the knobs at the top of the controller and the camera can be moved in flight. The Transmitter has a mobile device holder where you can clip your phone onto.
Simply download the DJI Go App, connect your phone to the controller via the controller’s USB cable and you will be able to stream live footage from the drone to the screen of your mobile device. The DJI Go App also displays a map of your DJI Phantom 4’s location via the DJI Phantom’s dual onboard satellite GPS while full camera control can also be accessed via the screen of your mobile device. The DJI Go App is compatible with iPhone and Android devices.
Four bright LED lights at the end of each arm allow the operator to easily see the drone in the sky and also allow you to see the orientation of your drone. The DJI Phantom 4 also features 4 push – and – release propellers for easy installation and dismantling. A dual satellite GPS, along with a dual compass and dual IMU substantially increase the reliability of the DJI Phantom 4 over previous models.
An ergonomic design with aerodynamics at the forethought of design, has resulted in a sleek and efficient design. Not only has the flight time been improved, but the designed body minimizes buffeting when flying during windy conditions. Center of gravity has been lifted with changes to the location of the battery and a more deeply integrated gimbal, enhancing the agility and accuracy of all commands.
