The Pro V2.0 version of DJI’s Phantom 4 Drone series has replaced the
earlier Pro versions and is the major model in the Phantom series. A
lower specification model, named, Phantom 4 Advanced, is also
available.

DJI Phantom 4 Advanced.The Pro V2.0 version looks almost identical to the original Phantom 4, with
the same shape and sturdy design. However, it has some significant

improvements whilst keeping most of the electronics along with some
upgrades and new features.  Image courtesy DJI.

Features at a Glance.

  • Sensor has a 30m range

Obstacle Avoidance.

The obstacle avoidance system has been improved, from the original forward face
and avoid system, to a new system with visual sensors, on the front, the
back and underneath, while infrared sensors detect left and right obstacles.

The Drone can now scan its surrounding environment to avoid any obstacles it might find in its
flight path.

Camera.

Another big improvement is the camera. This new camera can take video up to
60 frames per second and in 4K, and will take still photo’s up to 20
megapixels. The new camera has an image sensor of 1 inch size, 4
times the size of the original, it also has a mechanical shutter with
aperture control.

Deluxe Version.

There is also a deluxe version available, Phantom 4 Pro Plus. For an extra
$300 you get the same model drone, but the controller has a touch
screen display built in. This means that there are no cables to
connect to your phone, the phone battery life remains normal and you
won’t get phone calls to interrupt the flight.

Conclusion

This is probably the best hobby drone with camera, in its price range, on the market at present, it has the
best all around obstacle avoidance that others haven’t. The camera is
the best in its class at the moment. In its price range, $1900-$2400, there would be no others to match.

You can purchase this Drone from AerialTech, they also carry a good range of accessories.
