|DJI Phantom 4 UAV FEATURES|
An advanced 3-axis gimbal takes out unwanted vibration and movement in-flight, enabling the camera to capture smooth and fluid footage even during complex manoeuvres. Featuring a specially designed u-frame structure that provides better stabilisation, its movements are controlled by a Gimbal Control Unit that is in constant communication with both the gimbalâ€™s Inertial Measurement Unit and the Phantom 4â€™s flight controller, so that it can prepare for the Phantom 4â€™s movements before they happen. This gimbal is accurate to a highly precise Â±0.03Â°; coupled with custom designed dampers, it ensures smooth cinematic footage .
Capture moments that will last a lifetime, or take aerial film making to a higher level with the powerful Phantom 4 camera, featuring 4K video capture at 30 frames per second and Full HD 1080p at 120 frames per second for smooth slow motion. An aspherical lens with a 94Â° field of view (FOV) reduces distortion by 36% and chromatic aberration by 56% when compared to a Phantom 3. A hyperfocal length of one metre allows you to get closer to objects, while keeping them in pin-sharp focus. Photographers can shoot images in 12 megapixel Adobe DNG RAW.
Video colour profiles
A total of 10 colour profiles are available to give you the look you need or the image data you want. These range from a Vivid mode that amplifies colour and contrast to create videos that look incredible without extra processing, to Cine-D and D-Log modes offering high dynamic range footage for professionals, providing the best colour space for post-production. The power to edit is also essential for professional photography, so the Phantom 4 boasts not just 12 megapixel photos but also Adobe DNG RAW support, as well as lens profiles built straight into Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
A new, specially designed, magnesium core increases the stiffness and rigidity of the Phantom 4 without compromising weight. Working in tandem with the battery, it lifts the center of gravity closer to the level of the props, which increases agility and responsiveness. This is all placed within a sleek and aerodynamically efficient shell.
The Phantom 4â€™s sleek, streamlined and highly integrated form minimizes buffeting when flying in strong winds and against gusts from any angle, keeping its movements predictable and precise. A tightly integrated gimbal lifts the center of gravity close to the core, boosting its stability even further.
Multiple flight modes
The Phantom 4 is flexible enough to meet different flying demands. In Position mode you can use satellite and Vision Positioning, TapFly, ActiveTrack, and Intelligent Flight Modes. Sport mode adds extra agility and speed, reaching 45mph (72kph) while maintaining satellite and Vision Positioning systems. Atti holds the Phantomâ€™s altitude and level, but switches off satellite positioning making it ideal for smooth film making movements. Moving POI lets everyone shoot previously impossible shots.
In TapFly mode, all you have to do to fly is tap on the screen of your smartphone or tablet. To change the direction of flight, you can simply tap the screen to fly anywhere. Flying using control sticks and maintaining altitude, course and speed can be challenging, so TapFly takes over all of these controls for you, leaving you to focus on your shot. Using its Obstacle Sensing System, the Phantom 4 can fly places you might not have gone before, to create dynamic and inspiring footage. Through DJI GO you can also activate Smart Return Home which allows the Phantom to avoid obstacles as it returns.
Using ActiveTrack, the Phantom 4 will recognize your subject, follow them naturally, and keep them in the frame. No GPS bracelet, tracker, or beacon is required - ActiveTrack makes science fiction a reality. Whether you are running, driving, rafting, and more, the Phantom 4 uses an advanced combination of computer vision, object recognition, and machine learning to track you as you go. Circling a moving object used to only be achievable by the most seasoned of pilots, but now everyone can do it with a flick of the thumb. The entire time that ActiveTrack is running, obstacle avoidance is too, so it will decide whether it should continue following, avoid an obstacle, or simply stop.
Intelligent Flight Positioning
The Phantom 4 draws on up to 24 satellites to give you more accuracy and a faster connection to satellites, keeping you in complete control of your flight. Using a combination of GPS and GLONASS, it is completely aware of its starting point, location, and relation to you during flight. This intelligence means it knows its last position, provides Return to Home, shows you where it is on a map, and much more.
Front obstacle sensors and Vision Positioning System
Front obstacle sensors combine with advanced computer vision and processing to give the Phantom active obstacle avoidance that allows it to react to and avoid obstacles in its path. Additionally, DJIâ€™s Vision Positioning System has been refined, increasing its effective altitude by over 300% from the Phantom 3â€™s altitude to 10 meters, and sharpening up its positioning capabilities, allowing for greater security and confidence when flying indoors.
We all use our eyes to see and interact with the world. A forward Obstacle Sensing System gives the Phantom 4 its own pair of eyes, empowering it to see in three dimensions and to react accordingly. In Normal Mode, if it sees an obstacle coming close it will stop and hover. In TapFly, ActiveTrack, and Smart Return Home modes it will avoid the obstacle, or hover to avoid a collision. It also gives you warnings so you always know what is happening to the Phantom. The downward facing Vision Positioning module contains dual cameras and dual ultrasonic sensors to offer five times more positioning accuracy than previous systems. Used indoors, it provides a GPS-like flying experience, giving you the confidence you need to fly indoors.
Increased flight times
High efficiency motors and a custom designed large capacity battery offers 5350 mAh of power, giving the Phantom 4 a 28 minute flying time*. Integrated power management, balanced charging capabilities, plus smart charge and discharge protection keep the battery easy to charge and ready to fly at maximum capacity. Integrated Lightbridge technology allows you to see what the Phantom sees in 720p HD at up to 3.1 miles (5km) away**. This low latency video transmission technology is extremely resistant to interference, giving you more control over your flight.
*In calm conditions with constant speed.
**Maximum range tested in unobstructed areas free of interference, and may vary depending on local regulations.
Push and release propellers
The new prop mounts of the Phantom 4 allow each prop to be mounted more quickly and securely than before, requiring a simple push and twist to attach or release, instead of screwing down each prop. This security allows the Phantom 4 to fly with more overall agility. Built from a durable composite material, each prop is durable enough to withstand many hours of flight.
A brand new Sport mode brings responsive controls and the thrill of speed everywhere. An integrated gimbal and new battery positioned to move the center of gravity close to the aircraftâ€™s core combines with raised motors that increase torque reaction, and a reliable flight control system which precisely controls the aircraftâ€™s movement to make flight at high speeds safer.
Automatic flight logs
The Phantom 4 automatically logs the details of every flight you take, so you can check back on previous flights. Information recorded includes complete flight routes, duration, distance, location, and speed, so you can playback a previous flight path and even check your control stick movements. Cached versions of any photos and videos taken during your flights are kept at your fingertips for future reference. At the same time, an advanced flight recorder constantly records data from its internal mechanisms, which you can choose to share with the DJI support team if you ever have any questions or issues.
Dual IMUs and dual compass modules
On rare occasions, inconsistencies in compass or IMU data can affect the way an aircraft behaves. The Phantom 4 features dual compass modules and dual Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) that allow it to constantly compare the data it is receiving through both pairs. This data is run through advanced algorithms to check accuracy, and any inaccurate data is simply discarded without affecting flight.
The Phantom 4â€™s Beginner mode limits beginner flyers to 100ft (30m) up and away. It also prevents camera tilt controls to allow new pilots to familiarize themselves with flying, before adding more distance and camera control. When Beginner mode is switched off, the Phantom 4 will default to a maximum flight altitude of 390ft (120m) above the takeoff point. This can be adjusted to a maximum of 1640ft (500m) and you can also set your own maximum distance.
Customisable remote controller
All the controls on the Phantom 4 can be completely customized to match your flying style, from control stick sensitivity to the functionality of dedicated buttons. Designed with sensitive control sticks, dedicated buttons, and up to 3.1 mile (5km) range*, the Phantom 4 remote controller makes shooting images almost as easy holding a camera in your hands. It features dedicated controls for shutter release, start/stop video recording, a pause button to freeze your Phantom in the air during autonomous flight modes, a dial for gimbal pitch, and a dial for camera settings. It also has two customisable buttons, so you can tailor your flying experience.
*Maximum range tested in open areas free of interference and may vary depending on local regulations.
