The DJI Phantom 4 Is the Best Drone I've Ever Crashed

 

The DJI Phantom 4 is a slick, feature-packed drone. People say it's the drone that anybody can fly, the quadcopter that you just can't crash. Let me be painfully clear about two things: 1) Not everyone can fly the Phantom 4, and 2) It's pretty damn...

DJI Phantom 4 review

 

Thinking of giving drones a go? The Phantom 4 is where you start

Obstacle detection and automatic modes means it practically flies itself ; Still the easiest drone to use, even in Sport mode ; Fantastic camera and an even better gimbal

Low light still a challenge ; Lack of model choice

Not just a simple step up – the Phantom 4 is a massive leap forward for drones that should open the doors to everyone

DJI Phantom 4 review: Automatic flying for the people

 

DJI's top consumer drone is smart enough to practically fly itself while you concentrate on getting awesome aerial shots. But maybe that's not such a good thing.

The DJI Phantom 4 is a very polished drone compared to its competition, and for those who've flown a quad before, you'll have no trouble getting started with this one. The new Sport mode lets you get to your location faster or just have some fun. Its...

The Obstacle Sensing System only sees things in front of the drone. You still need a tablet or phone ready to go along with the controller and drone battery. Extra batteries are expensive. Landing gear and camera are fixed to the body, so you can't...

Yep, it's not cheap, but DJI has made one of the smartest drones available with the Phantom 4.

DJI Phantom 4

 

The latest version of DJI's top-end consumer drone, the Phantom 4, improves on its predecessor in many ways. It's the best consumer drone on the market, and it's priced accordingly.

Easy to fly. Extremely stable. Obstacle avoidance. Incredible operating range with 720p Live View. Return-to-home and other safety features. Automated flight modes. High-speed Sport mode. Smooth 4K video capture. 20mm wide-angle lens. Subject...

Pricey. True mission planning requires third-party app.

Conclusions The Phantom 4 is the best consumer drone that DJI has released to date. It takes everything we loved about the Phantom 3 Professional and improves upon it. You get smooth, stabilized 4K video capture, longer flight times, the ability to...

DJI Phantom 4 Review: The first drone for everyone

 

The drone takes off, hovering a few feet off the ground. I guide it up to about 12 feet with the throttle on the remote control. Then my three year old son takes over. He taps the screen on an iPad...

Great autonomous features ; Reliable and powerful flight ; Terrific camera and connectivity

Expensive ; Only comes with one battery

DJI Phantom 4 review

 

DJI's Phantom 4 adds groundbreaking object avoidance plus an improved high-quality, robust build

High-quality stabilised footage ; Object avoidance ; Easy to fly

Phantom 3 batteries not compatible ; Constant software updates ; App can get a bit confusing

The Phantom 4 is a refinement of the Phantom 3 Professional. There are tweaks to the camera's performance, but the major upgrades are the robust design, improved materials, and clever flight aids using new sensors. This makes the Phantom 4 a worthwhile...

DJI Phantom 4 review: the drone that won’t crash into things

 

Now that prices of previous Phantoms have dropped massively, is the Phantom 4 worth a massive £1229? We think so, and you'll find out why in our DJI Phantom 4 review.

The Phantom 4 is unquestionably DJI’s best drone yet. It shoots decent quality 4K video and is easier to control than ever before. Batteries are very expensive, though, and the intelligent modes still don’t quite match those you’ll get with a 3DR Solo...
