The Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian features a new colour option and its titanium alloy and magnesium alloy construction increases the rigidity and reduces the weight of the frame, and its 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor is able to shoot 4K/60fps video and Burst Mode stills at 14fps. Pilots must adhere to the CAA Flight Regulations.
Key Features: DJI Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian Quadcopter Drone
- The new obsidian colour option requires a higher standard production process which results in an anti-fingerprint finish
- 1-inch, 20-megapixel sensor
- Able to shoot 4K at 60fps
- Mechanical shutter
- Dual coding: H.264 and H.265
- Obstacle sensing in 5 directions
- Remote controller without built-in screen
- 4.3 mile (7km) transmission range
- 30 minute flight time
Please note: drone flying is regulated and pilots must adhere to UK Civil Aviation Authority Flight Regulations. As of 22nd July 2017, there will be new rules to better regulate drone use - drones to be registered and users to sit safety tests under new government rules. More information can be found on GOV.UK's website.
Intelligent Flight Modes:
Draw is a brand new technology for waypoint control. Simply draw a route on screen and the Phantom 4 Pro will move in that direction while keeping its altitude locked. This allows the pilot to focus on camera control and enables more complex shots. There are two Draw modes that can be used in different scenarios.
What else is included:
- Lexar 16gb 633x micro SD card
- Carrying case
- Gimbal clamp
- Micro USB cable
- USB OTG cable
Please note that the carrying case, gimbal clamp, micro USB, USB ITG cable, and micro SD card are not covered by the warranty
The Phantom 4 Pro automatically recognizes subjects, follows and captures them as they move, making it easier to get complex shots. Following fast-moving objects can be very challenging, but advanced image recognition algorithms used by the Phantom 4 Pro allow it to recognize and track the object while keeping it in frame. This new algorithm also recognizes more subjects, from people to vehicles to animals, and will adjust its flight dynamics to match, ensuring smoother shots. Pilots can either follow behind or in front of a subject; fly alongside a subject; or keep the camera trained on a subject whilst the aircraft flies anywhere.
Fly in any direction visible on-screen with a simple tap. Tap anywhere on-screen to smoothly adjust the direction of flight while automatically avoiding obstacles and tap the screen again or use control sticks to change direction. A new AR route function shows the aircraft’s real-time flight direction for reference as its route is adjusted. As it can be difficult to control altitude, course, speed and camera pitch simultaneously using joysticks, TapFly Free allows a pilot to set the direction of flight, allowing them to turn the Phantom 4 Pro or tilt the gimbal as required without changing the direction of flight. In total, there are now three TapFly modes: TapFly Forward; TapFly Backward; and TapFly Free
- Return to Home
In its upgraded Return to Home mode, the Phantom 4 Pro can automatically choose the best route to return home depending on environmental conditions. It records its route as it flies, allowing it to return along the same route avoiding obstacles if the control signal is disconnected. Based on its altitude at the time of disconnection, the Phantom 4 Pro is also able to adjust its flight path to avoid obstacles it has seen during its flight. At takeoff, the Phantom 4 Pro will record the scene below and compare its recording with what it sees as it returns, for more precise landing. It can also detect the ground to see whether there is suitable spot for landing. If any obstacles are found, or there is water on the ground, it will alert the pilot and hover at an appropriate height, helping the aircraft to land more safely.
- Gesture Mode
Using Gesture Mode, selfies can be captured easily using a few gestures without the remote controller. Advanced computer vision technology allows the Phantom 4 Pro to take instructions through gestures. The subject simply lifts their arms when facing the camera and the aircraft will recognize this movement by locking on and placing the subject in the center of the frame. When ready for a photo, the subject holds their arms out to signal the aircraft. A three second countdown will begin, making time to strike a pose, allowing moments to be captured without the remote control.
