This is the DJI Phantom 4, and it’s the best drone out right now especially for beginners. It’s not cheap but I think it’s worth every single penny. Why, you ask? Well simply put this thing is sleek, it’s high quality, it’s intelligent, it takes amazing videos and photos, and most importantly, it’s so much fun. If you stick around to the end of this video you’ll get to see some of its best features in action and when you see the footage it can take you’ll most certainly want one for yourself.
When you first unbox the Phantom 4 you’ll see that it comes with a foam carrying case that has a built-in latch which is really convenient. In the case you’ll find the Phantom 4 itself, the remote controller, 8 propeller blades, the battery, the battery charger, quick start guides and some various cables. It also comes with a 16GB micro SD card to get you started.
You’ll first notice the simple design when installing the propeller blades which are very easy to put on, you just push and twist. It’s also nice that the battery charger can charge the remote controller and the drone battery at the same time. At 100% charge the new Phantom 4 can fly for almost 28 minutes which is 25% longer than the Phantom 3. Now, just to be safe I only fly mine for about 20-25 minutes each time, but the Phantom 4 is a “smart” drone so it will warn you when the battery is low and it can land itself if the battery reaches a critical low level.
The build quality of the Phantom 4 is pretty stunning. It feels solid but looks carefully polished. It’s not too heavy, and I was glad to find out I was able to carry it easily by gripping the top with just one hand.
Of course the most important physical feature of the Phantom 4 is the high performance camera. It has a newly designed lens and can capture 4K ultra HD videos at 30fps and 1080p full HD videos at 120fps for slow motion shots. It can also capture 12MP raw photos. So if the camera is Batman, that means the gimbal is Robin. The 3-axis gimbal has a specially designed u-frame structure that stabilizes the camera at all times giving you smooth cinematic video footage even in strong winds which you’ll see during the 2nd half of this video. Now when you get your Phantom 4 I highly recommend getting these ND filters for the camera. These allow you to record at a slower shutter speed in bright conditions which will be necessary if you’re trying to get a more cinematic film look.
The Phantom 4 is only half of the main package. The other half is the remote controller which is very easy to get used to if you’ve ever played video games. Basically, the left stick moves the drone up, down, or turns it. The right stick moves the drone forward, backward, left, or right. The back of the controller allows you to switch between the multiple flight modes and do other things like control the camera tilt. The two antennas allow you to control the drone up to 3.1 miles away while still seeing the live preview on your smartphone or tablet.
The controller has an adjustable clasp that holds your tablet or smartphone in place. The required device can be any of the supported Android devices or any Apple device with iOS 8 or later. My only complaint is that I wish it did not require a cable going from the device to the controller. I was hoping it would connect via Bluetooth. Other than that the free DJI Go app is the only thing left to get you up and flying.
With the dual satellite positioning system and enhanced Vision Positioning System, flying the Phantom 4 is super easy. It will automatically avoid obstacles using its new sensors and GPS technology so beginners can start flying quickly with the new Intelligent Flight modes such as Tap To Fly and Active Track. If you’re an experienced flyer on the other hand, the incredibly fast Sport Mode will get you excited.
