The DJI Phantom 4 Drone is a new model of a modern drone, introduced by DJI Innovations in early spring 2016. It is an advanced 4-rotor apparatus, which ideally kept in the air. The general technical specifications of this latest amateur drone model allow you to use it anywhere. It will work at a temperature of 0 to 40 degrees. He is not afraid of frosts.
This unique quadrocopter weighs only 1380 grams, but at the same time, it can rise to a height of 120 meters and maintain it for 28 minutes at a maximum speed of 20m/s. When climbing, its rate is 6m/s, and when lowering before landing – 4m/s. The flight of this drone model supported by GPS and Glonass satellites. The camera built into the DJI Phantom 4 quadrocopter has its characteristics, which also deserve attention.
The DJI Phantom 4 Drone transported without screws, but removing and putting them on has become much more comfortable. You put on the blade and turn it until it clicks. The edges removed by pressing on them and turning in the right direction (on each beam it is drawn in which direction). The new mounting mechanism has significantly simplified the procedure for changing screws.
All sensors with which this aircraft equipped assembled in a single complex, which has the name Guidance. It allows the drone to easily bypass all obstacles that it may encounter in flight, as well as return home even if the signal is lost. Thus, launching the DJI Phantom 4 Drone, you can not worry about its safety. He will return home anyway, and the developer took good care of this. But the most significant changes have affected the camera. Firstly, it wholly redesigned; secondly, it began to suspend differently, and thirdly, its strength increased significantly. The overall dynamics of this drone model allows you to reach speeds of up to 72 km/h over 28 minutes of flight. As for the technical characteristics of the control panel, they will also be at their best. The frequency range is from 2.400 to 3.483 GHz, the transmit power is 23 and 17 dBm, and the maximum transmission of their signal is five and 3.5km, respectively.
Camera & Image Quality
As for its technical characteristics, the sharpness of the lens has noticeably improved, and now the quadrocopter makes high-quality images during the flight, even in low light conditions. Video shooting has also become no less high-quality – all videos shot by the drone processed in the traditional Adobe DNG RAW format. They do not need professional processing. The format of the footage obtained after shooting with the DJI Phantom 4 aircraft can be: MV, mp4, the maximum bitrate is 60 megabits per second, ISO – from 100 to 3200. The camera has ex-FAT and FAT32 file systems, and also supports all types of microcards up to 64 gigabytes.
Flight Controller & System
The onboard computer installed inside the DJI Phantom processes all the information received from sensors, cameras, and control equipment. There are no delays in its operation: the quad responds very quickly to commands and behaves correctly in automatic modes. As for possible problems with the computer, they can arise only after some extremely unsuccessful landings of the Phantom 4, for example, into the water.
DJI Phantom 4 Drone received a more capacious battery that allows you to spend almost half an hour in flight. It is a significant step forward, whose battery provided only 23 minutes of flight time. Another useful option for copter is an obstacle flight system.
The Phantom 4 sensors continuously scan the area in front of it and stop the drone if traffic obstruction occurs. Given that the flight range can reach 5 kilometers, it is difficult to overestimate the importance of the new system.
Modes & Functions
The particular Tar Fly function allows you to quickly and easily determine the place where you plan to launch the DJI Phantom 4 quadrocopter. The Active Track system allows the drone to identify an object for photo and video shooting quickly. Awesome frames provided. Phantom 4 received new flight modes that facilitate management. They designed to work with a video camera because, for many owners, it is the camera that is an essential element.
Tap to fly – In the application, you indicate the point to which you must fly, after which the copter begins to move towards it.
Automatic return to the take-off point.
AutoTrack (similar to Follow Me) – The application indicates the object (it can be a person, animal, vehicle), which must follow. The drone equipped with a face recognition system; that is, it does not lose a person, even in a crowd. The sensor system of the tracking function works very well, Phantom 4 responds adequately to an increase in the speed of an object, to a change in its direction of movement, to the occurrence of obstacles on the way. Of course, if an object makes a frequent and abrupt change of direction, it will eventually be lost by a copter.
Circular flyby – The same AutoTrack function used, but after fixing the object, the operator gives the Phantom command to fly around, rejecting the joystick. Paving the route.
The 5350mAh drone battery provides decent battery life. Charging the Phantom 4 takes a little more than 3.5 hours, and this is an acceptable result if you make a discount on capacity. In the air, the copter can spend up to 28 minutes.
