DJI Phantom 4 - Smarter Drone Does the Piloting for You

DJI has announced the Phantom 4, the next generation of its integrated drones for high-level aerial photography and cinematography, available soon for $1399.

The new Phantom uses real-time video processing to simplify the work required to pilot the drone while shooting a subject in motion:

  • The new Obstacle Sensing System uses a pair of forward-facing cameras to detect upcoming obstacles in order to avoid collisions
  • The new TapFly mode flies automatically in a direction that you tap on the app screen with clean and smooth motion.
  • The ActiveTrack mode automatically tracks a moving subject from a safe distance, again simply by tapping to select the subject on the app screen.

Plus, the Phantom 4 is redesigned for longer flight time (to 28 minutes) and faster speed (up to 44 mph).

The Phantom 4 is available now for pre-order from DJI and, interestingly, from Apple. Shipping starts March 15, with product exclusively available in Apple Stores through the end of March.

Meanwhile, the base previous-generation Phantom 3 Standard for beginner pilots is now only $499, and the Phantom 3 Advanced and Professional are $799 and $999 respectively, with high-def and 4K video, vision positioning (without GPS), and extended ranges.
