The newest version of the gold standard in consumer/entry-level professional quadcopters is here: the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0. Drone Nerds has the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 and a wide a selection of accessories and options to make this highly capable quadcopter fly and record the way you want it to.
The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 flies with stability, maneuverability, a long range, and both obstacle recognition and obstacle avoidance. Return to Home still comes on automatically if battery reserves run low. And it does all of this more quietly than ever, perfect when flying in sensitive areas or at events, including weddings.
Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 has the video and still quality needed not only for weddings, but also for TV news coverage, shooting commercials and recording video for quality web pages: ultra-high-definition 4K video at up to 60 frames per second, and remarkably crisp 20MP stills with high clarity due to the camera’s remotely selectable stops in its dynamic range.
Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 and OcuSync HD
OcuSync HD, the most sophisticated transmission system from DJI, is standard on the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0. It sends commands and transmits/receives video transmissions up to 4.3 miles. OcuSync transmits in two frequencies: 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz. It automatically and seamlessly switches between the two frequencies to avoid interference.
With OccuSync, you also can connect DJI Goggles wirelessly to the Phantom 4 V2.0, allowing you to take advantage of the full range of DJI Goggles capabilities. With the optional goggles, you can visually immerse yourself in the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 flight. You also can issue commands with head movements. You can buy DJI goggles separately from Drone Nerds.
Fly Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 Right Out of the Box
The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 comes Ready To Fly. That means only minor, non-soldered assembly is required. Everything you need is in the box, except for your smartphone or tablet, either of which you will connect by USB cable to the remote controller.
High-Performance Camera for Improved Imagery
The capabilities of the camera make a very clear “Pro” statement. The 1-inch CMOS sensor more than doubles the pixels in non-Pro Phantom 4 cameras. It provides more definition in both video and stills.
More Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 camera highlights:
True 4K video: You’d have a tough time discerning 4K video shot by a Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 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 V2.0 video an ideal candidate for conversion to slow motion. The output is increased to 100Mbs from 60Mbs on most earlier Phantom 4 models. This is true professional-level video that’s suitable for shooting TV news, commercials, features, advanced web pages, weddings and indoor/outdoor events.
DJI Go 4 Flight Program Provides Complete Control
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.
Automatic 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 Phantom 4 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.
