The Phantom 4 Pro proved to be a distinct improvement over earlier Phantom 4 drones because of a camera that can deliver truly professional results, including 4K video shot at 60fps.
The Phantom 4 Pro+ takes another quantum leap, this time with a built-in display for the remote controller. It enhances the flying experience with a crystal-clear display of streamed video, even in bright sunlight.
The Phantom 4 Pro drone and the Phantom 4 Pro+ drones are identical. They’re both maneuverable and reliable, with capability for 4K video, image stabilization from a motorized 3-axis gimbal, 4.3-mile range, up to 30 minutes of flight time, high speed, precise placement, memory features, the DJI Go flight program, and four-directional obstacle avoidance.
The built-in display on the Phantom 4 Pro+ is 5.5 inches. This 1080p display is ready for use once you unfold it — there’s never a need for a preflight connection to a smartphone or a tablet. Neither the phone nor the tablet come up to the display capabilities of the built-in unit. And the Pro+ controller with built-in display will weigh less than a Pro controller with tablet, if you were relying on the tablet for a better view than a phone provides.
The improved view is visible even on bright days. The built-in Pro+ display is more than twice as bright as a phone or tablet attached to the older Pro controller. Images look sharper, with far more definition, than on the phone or tablet, even without a viewing hood.
The display uses a 5.8Ghz signal, which keeps the display from interfering with the drone’s 2.4Ghz signal.
With the display built in, setup before each flight becomes quicker. You don’t have to attach your phone, and you don’t have to connect — or remember — your cable. Press a single button, and the remote controller with built-in display is ready for flight. A microphone and speaker also are built in. After flying, there’s no device to detach. Just fold the built-in display against the controller and pack it up.
On the back, the Pro+ controller has improved connectivity. Where the Pro controller has only two USB ports, the Pro+ controller has two USB ports, a microSD card slot and an HDMI out port. The HDMI port allows you to connect to an HDMI monitor, perhaps most useful at home or in the studio.
Highlights of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro+:
The Phantom 4 Pro+ comes Ready To Fly. If you’re a professional videographer or photographer who pilots a drone, and not a pilot who uses a camera, that matters. Only minor, non-soldered assembly is required. Everything you need is in the box, including the display, already attached to the remote controller.
The capabilities of the camera make a very clear statement that says “Pro.” The 1-inch CMOS sensor more than doubles the pixels in older Phantom 4 cameras. It provides more definition in both video and stills.
True 4K video: You’d have a tough time discerning 4K video shot by a Phantom 4 Pro+ from 4K video shot by cameras on higher-priced quadcopters. A motorized 3-axis gimbal keeps the video shake-free. The 60fps speed makes P4P+ video an ideal candidate for conversion to slow motion.
The output is increased to 100Mbs from 60Mbs on earlier Phantom 4 cameras. This is true professional-level video that’s suitable for shooting TV news, commercials, features, advanced web pages, weddings and indoor/outdoor events.
20MP stills: The bigger sensor takes stills to an outstanding 20MP on the Phantom 4 Pro+, up from 12MP on previous P4s. And the maximum burst rate doubles to 14fps from 7fps on earlier P4s. Those are huge improvements for professional photographers.
Adjustable aperture: Remember when you had to attach a filter on bright days to reduce the light entering through the Phantom 4’s fixed f2.8 aperture? On the Phantom 4 Pro, you can adjust the aperture through a dynamic range of f2.8 to down to f11, directly from your remote controller. That’s helpful for taming bright sunlight and for increasing depth of field. Filters, of course, are still accommodated.
Distortion-free shutter: The mechanical shutter on the Phantom 4 Pro+ prevents rolling distortion. If you have shot really fast action from an earlier Phantom 4, you might have encountered distortion. A photo of a racecar, for instance, would produce oblong tires because the camera couldn’t freeze action that fast. Now the rotating tires look like tires, not like a distant galaxy spinning in space.
Shutter speeds: The mechanical shutter has manually adjustable speeds from 8 seconds for time exposures to 1/2000 second for freezing action. The electronic shutter adjusts from 8 seconds to 1/8000 second.
You need a flight program that does more than tell your drone how fast and in which direction to go. How about a program that provides total camera control, with onscreen adjustments for aperture, ISO, shutter and shooting formats? That’s DJI Go 4. Maybe you want changes in flight data to show up immediately in front of you. Or you want to easily check video transmission data. Maybe you want to be reminded of what flight mode you’re in. It’s all there with DJI Go 4, along with a variety of helpful flight modes.
TapFly: Just tap on the screen to point your drone in that direction. It will automatically avoid obstacles, unless you’re in TapFly Free. In Tap Fly Free, the drone goes in the direction you tell it but you can separately control the camera and gimbal. That leaves your hands free to concentrate on aerial video or photography, not on flying the aircraft. With TapFly Forward, the Pro+ will go forward to where your tap points it, with the camera and gimbal straight ahead. In TapFly Backward, the drone flies backwards in the direction opposite of where you tapped on the screen, with the camera and gimbal again aimed to the front of the aircraft.
Draw: Here’s another program that lets you concentrate on controlling the camera on your Pro+. Use your finger to draw your route onscreen, and the aircraft will follow it. Draw Standard allows the drone to follow the indicated path with the camera facing the direction of flight. Draw Manual really helps with creative video and photography by telling the drone to follow the path only when you command it to move, while you aim the camera wherever you want.
Return to Home: This program is your security blanket when you signal the Phantom 4 Pro+ to return to base. It also automatically boots when the signal is lost. The aircraft follows the safe path it just took, or if that path is unavailable, it finds its way using GPS and obstacle avoidance.
A pilot who also has to operate the camera will appreciate ActiveTrack. The program makes it much easier for a solo operator to take quality video and photos by locking onto and tracking the subject. The aircraft adjusts to the subject’s speed, whether he slows or speeds up. Available are three modes:
Trace: Follow in front of or behind the subject, using obstacle avoidance.
Profile: Follow alongside the subject, presenting different angles.
Spotlight: Recognize and keep the subject in the frame while you fly in any direction, looking for the unusually expressive shot. This works best with a still or slow-moving subject.
The Phantom 4 Pro is safer to fly than earlier Phantom 4 drones because it has more sensors to detect obstacles. Older Phantom 4 aircraft had sensors up front. The Pro+ has sensors on the front, both sides, the bottom and the back. It will sense obstacles in all those directions. It will avoid obstacles in the front, sides and back. P4P can sense obstacles as close as 7 inches and as far away as 23 feet — really useful if you’re flying near trees or indoors. The security from five-directional sensing generates confidence to get in, get a difficult shot, and get out safely.
Professionals can’t afford to scratch a mission because a drone’s positioning hardware fails. That’s why the Phantom 4 Pro+ has redundant compasses and IMUs. If one of either fails, the redundant sensor takes over, and the flight continues. Reliance on the backup sensor is seamless. Phantom 4 Pro+ also relies on two satellite systems: GPS and GLONASS, the Russian system. If GPS becomes unavailable, the other system can be used.
The remote controller for the Phantom 4 Pro+ operates at up to 4.3 miles. Video is transmitted by Lightbridge in 1080p, or 720p at farther distances. Two frequencies are available for transmissions: 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz. The Pro will switch between frequencies automatically if it senses interference from cell towers, WiFi or some other source. FPVLR range extenders are available through DroneNerds.com. Professional installation by Drone Nerds DJI-certified technicians is recommended. It’s affordable and takes only a few days when service is arranged online.
The DJI Intelligent Flight Battery is the smartest drone battery on the market, and that makes it highly reliable. It’s smart enough to prevent overcharging or over draining. It even protects against damage during storage by slowly discharging power. An Intelligent Flight Battery tells you, through the DJI Go 4 flight program, how much power it has in reserve. Reserve running low? Return to Home mode will get your Phantom 4 Pro+ safely back to base before power is gone. But don’t worry: Each battery gives the Phantom 4 Pro+ up to 30 minutes of flight time.
When you return to base for a fresh battery, the Phantom 4 Pro+ remembers its takeoff spot and lands there, making landings easier. It then returns to the precise spot where you had been filming, because it remembers that, too. Since you flew there safely, P4P+ remembers the flight path. When Return to Home is activated, whether by you or by the flight program when a signal is lost, the aircraft uses the safe path to get back to base.
The Phantom 4 Pro is equipped with an onboard camera of a new 1-inch 20MP CMOS sensor, four times bigger and more powerful than that of the Phantom 4. Its enlarged sensor has 12 stops of dynamic range, larger pixels, an improved signal-to-noise ratio, and a wide ISO range of 100 to 12,800 for optimum low-light performance. Allowing the drone’s camera to consistently deliver sharp and clear images and videos even in difficult lighting conditions. And the engineered 24mm f/2.8 wide-angle lens that is specially optimized for capturing aerial imagery.
Combined with the larger sensor and DJI’s powerful imaging processors, the camera is able to produce crisp, richly detailed 20MP photos and ultra-high definition 4K videos. Enhanced video processing capability allows the Phantom 4 Pro to support H.264 4K videos at 60fps and H.265 4K at 30fps, recorded at a maximum video bitrate of 100 Mbps.
Another feature that is exclusive to the Phantom 4 Pro (out of the Phantom line) is the new mechanical shutter, which was added to cancel out the rolling shutter distortion that can sometimes occur when shooting fast-moving subjects or when recording while flying at maximum speed. These shooting situations are typically quite challenging with an electronic shutter, but the Phantom 4 Pro utilizes a mechanical shutter and a large-aperture prime lens to effectively eliminate motion blur and maintain optimum image quality.
The Phantom 4 was the first consumer drone to have the capability of “seeing” the world around it and avoiding any obstacles it may encounter in its path. With the Phantom 4 Pro+, this capability is further improved and refined with the addition of multiple sets of high-resolution stereo vision sensors, which can be found in the front, back, and under the body of the drone. It also has an infrared sensing system to cover the left and right sides. These sensors allow the drone to sense obstacles in five different directions, and avoid them in four.
You don’t have to be an expert pilot to fly the drone while simultaneously executing complex shots thanks to the Phantom 4 Pro’s intelligent flight modes.
Out of the many intelligent flight modes available on the Phantom 4 Pro+, ActiveTrack is the most useful for shooting videos or taking photos of a specified subject. This mode allows the quadcopter to recognize an object and follow it while keeping it in the frame. It accomplishes this feat using sophisticated image recognition algorithms that allow the drone to recognize a wide range of subjects, including people, animals, vehicles, and more.
This unique DJI feature provides easy user control with the simple tap of a finger. In this mode, the user is able to tap anywhere on the screen and make the Phantom 4 Pro fly smoothly in that direction, while carefully avoiding obstacles in the process.
DJI’s innovative Gesture Mode allows the Phantom 4 Pro’s camera to recognize gestures with computer vision technology and interpret them as commands. By making simple hand gestures, you can make the aircraft place you in the middle of the camera and start a three-second countdown to capture selfies or group photos hands-free.
The Phantom 4 Pro+ comes with a dedicated remote controller equipped with a 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display screen, which has a brightness of 1000 cd/m2 for easier viewing even in glaring, ultra-bright sunshine. The remote provides complete control over flight and camera functions thanks to the integrated DJI GO app and offers up to five hours of battery power. It also makes use of an upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system, which helps rule out instances of image lag when flying in areas with heavy interference. The upgraded video transmission system also uses Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) to send and receive controller and transmission signals at the same frequency, thus allowing efficient flights while streaming high-quality videos in real-time.
The Phantom 4 Pro makes use of sensor redundancy for improved flight stability and reliability. It has two sets of compass modules and inertial measurement units (IMU), which are the two most important sensors as they are responsible for navigation and flight accuracy. This way, in the event the one sensor stops working or malfunctions, the spare sensor can immediately take its place without causing disruptions in flight.
