Written by Daryl-Leigh Preuss

The DJI Phantom 4 Pro and Pro +, the ideal drones for hobbyists and professionals alike! Take a closer look at these incredible aircraft's.

What's the difference between the DJI Phantom 4 Pro & Pro +:
The difference between the Pro and Pro+ drones, is that the Pro+ unit has a built in screen on the remote (there is thus no need to connect to your phone or tablet). The drones, themselves, are exactly the same.



  • 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor
  • Shoots 4K/60fps video
  • Burst Mode stills at 14fps
  • Airframe made from titanium and magnesium reducing weight
  • Five-directions of obstacle sensing
  • Four-directions of obstacle avoidance

Camera with 1-inch 20MP CMOS Sensor

  • Eliminates rolling shutter distortion when taking a photo of fast moving objects
  • Supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps (Both with a 100Mps bitrate)
  • Advanced sensors and processors enable more image detail and image data

Five-Directions of Obstacle Sensing

  • High resolution stereo vision sensors placed at the front and rear
  • Infrared sensing systems placed on the left and right sides
  • Protected from obstacles allowing you to achieve more complex shots

Remote Controller

Phantom 4 Pro:

  • Upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system
  • Added 5.8 GHz transmission support
  • Choice between 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz
  • Maximum video transmission range of 7km

  • BUILT-IN 5.5in 1080p screen
  • 1000cd/m2 brightness (More than twice as bright as conventional smart devices)
  • Vivid colours easily visible in direct sunlight
  • No mobile device required
  • DJI GO app included (Hardware and software can be fully optimized reducing video lag)
  • Share images almost instantly using the DJI GO app
  • Integrated HDMI port, Micro-SD card slot, microphone, embedded loudspeaker and Wifi connection
  • 5 hour battery life

    • Waypoint control!
    • Draw the route on screen and the Phantom 4 Pro will move in that direction without changing altitude.

    Draw Modes:

    • Standard: The aircraft follows the route at a constant speed with the camera facing in the direction of flight.
    • Manual: The aircraft only moves along the route when instructed. The camera can face any direction in this mode.


    • The Phantom 4 Pro automatically recognizes, follows and captures subjects as they move
    • Advanced image recognition algorithms allow it to track fast moving objects while keeping it in the frame for a smooth shot.


    • Fly in any direction visible on-screen with a simple tap
    • Automatically avoids obstacles
    • Tap the screen again or use control sticks to change direction
    • TapFly allows you to turn and tilt the gimbal of the Phantom 4 Pro without changing the direction of flight.

    TapFly Modes:

    • TapFly Forward - Tap to fly in the selected direction
    • TapFly Backward - Tap to fly in the opposite direction of the tap
    • I.e. Tap in the bottom right corner of the screen to fly backward towards the top left
    • TapFly Free - Lock the forward direction of the Phantom without locking the camera direction allowing it to turn as it flies.

    *Obstacle Avoidance is not available with TapFly Free!!!

    Return to Home

    • The Phantom 4 Pro automatically chooses the best route home depending on environmental conditions
    • It records its route as it flies, allowing it to return along the same route avoiding obstacles even if the control signal is disconnected
    • At takeoff, the Phantom 4 Pro will record the scene below and compare its recording with what it sees as it returns, ensuring a precise landing
    • It will alert the pilot and hover at the appropriate height if it senses any water or obstacles below


    Gesture Mode

    • Selfies can be captured using gestures instead of the remote conroller
    • The Phantom 4 Pro will recognize the gesture then lock and centre the subject in the frame
    • Hold your arms out to signal the aircraft, a three second countdown will begin giving you time to strike a pose!

    Sensor Redundancy

    • The Phantom 4 Pro features dual compass modules and dual IMU units
    • Ensures a stable flight
    • Constantly compares the data received through both pairs
    • Any inaccurate data is simply discarded without affecting flight keeping flight steady and reliable

    Intelligent Batteries

    • Maximum flight time of 30mins
    • DJI GO app shows battery lifetime and calculates remaining flight times according to distance traveled and more
    • It will alert when it reaches a minimum safe amount required for a safe journey home
    • It also has an advanced battery management system to prevent overcharging and over draining
    • When placed in longer term storage, batteries will discharge to maintain good health

    DJI GO

    • There are a large number of Intelligent Flight modes available on this app
    • Provides access to full manuel camera controls (ISO; aperture; shutter speed; image formats etc.)
    • All changes appear instantly on-screen
