PROS

  • The innovative guidance and obstacle avoidance technology make the DJI Phantom 4 almost crash-proof.
  • The Phantom 4 camera can record 4K video and stream 720p video. Most reviewers were impressed by its quality.
  • Advances in construction and design allow the Phantom 4 to fly faster and longer than its predecessor.

CONS

  • The DJI Phantom 4 is expensive.
  • Several reviewers say that even with its advanced technology, the Phantom 4 isn't a good choice for beginners.
  • Use of included prop guards blocks the obstacle avoidance technology.
The newest addition to DJI's acclaimed flagship line of camera-equipped drones adds innovative guidance and crash-avoidance technologies as well as a state-of-the-art camera capable of capturing 4K video at 30 frames per second and streaming live 720p video. The Phantom 4 uses ActiveTrack technology, a combination of computer vision and AI, to keep its sights trained on you wherever you go, while TapFly Mode lets you control the drone's direction by tapping on the screen of a supported mobile device. Thanks to a redesign and use of new lightweight materials, the Phantom 4 can fly faster and farther than its predecessor. All these goodies don't come cheap: The Phantom 4 lists at $1399.
