DJI Phantom 4 review

 

It's all in the experience.

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

A great leap forward for the best drone on the market

DJI Phantom 4 Review

 

Perfect for those that want high quality video but don't want to pay top dollar

High quality, stable video, great flight performance, great video downlink

Can be expensive

The Phantom 4 offers best or near best in class performance in just about every category. It provides silky smooth, high quality footage, handles like a sports car, and has a great user interface. If capturing the best possible footage is your main...

DJI Phantom 4 Drone Review

 

There's a lot to like in the Phantom 4. It shoots very-high-quality video that looks significantly sharper than what you get from the Phantom 3 and as good as the video from a 3DR Solo using a GoPro 4. The Phantom 4 is very easy to fly, even for novice...

Longer battery life ; Faster flight ; Excellent image quality ; App is straightforward and easy to use

Collision avoidance is not foolproof ; Some modes disable collision avoidance ; Flight modes are confusing ; Occasionally catches sight of itself in video ; Expensive

Novice pilots will love the simple control and flying of the Phantom 4, and experienced pilots will like the power and speed.

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...

DJI Phantom 4 - now harder to crash

 

With its new collision avoidance system and upgrades all round this is the top-end, all-in-one drone to buy

If you’re serious about drones and aerial photography, though, either for leisure or as a small business such as event or wedding photography, then the DJI Phantom 4 gets our thumb up. It’s brilliantly designed, safer than ever, shoots better footage...
