What our experts think...
I loved the built-in screen on the controller. It’s much brighter than my phone and there was a lot less glare, I didn’t need to squint at the screen even when the sun was right above me. Plus it saved my phone battery from being drained from a long flight!
What Stands out
- Crash risk is reduced with automatic 5 direction obstacle avoidance
- Professional level photography with the 1” CMOS image sensor camera shooting 20mp images
- Shoot video in 4K at 60fps or 1080p at 120fps, perfect for slow-mo footage
- See the sights for longer with an Impressive 30 minute flight time
- Outstanding range, live HD video from up to 4.3 miles away
Soar the skies with confidence as the Phantom 4 Pro Plus features 5-direction obstacle avoidance. What’s really impressive is that it can automatically dodge and weave obstacles when it’s flying at high speeds, just when you need obstacle avoidance the most. These clever sensors on the front, back, left, right and underside actively scan the environment around the drone, seeing as far as 30m, enabling the drone to automatically avoid pesky things like trees, buildings and whatever else you might encounter.
The real wow factor of this drone is its photo and video capability. The Pro captures 20mp images and has been equipped with a 1-inch CMOS image sensor, that’s about four times bigger than the sensor on your camera phone, this is what lets you capture much more detail. Everything has been thought of, it has a mechanical shutter so you can say goodbye to rolling shutter effect and with the ability to now change the aperture settings you’ll have more control over your shots. Video is really impressive, you can shoot in 4K at up to 60fps or 1080p at 120fps, which is great for creating slow-mo footage. The 3 axis gimbal will ensure you’re footage is smooth and seamless.
If that wasn’t enough for you the Pro has some new autopilot features for you to put to the test. There’s some great Active Track modes where the Pro will automatically recognise a subject, follow and capture them as they move, making complex shots easier. And if you’re out exploring on your own you can even capture yourself with your amazing backdrop using Gesture mode, where you yourself are the remote control.
The Pro has an outstanding range, you can view live HD video from up to 4.3 miles away without so much as a jitter. Reaching a maximum speed of up to 44mph alongside a lengthy flight time of 30 minutes, you can really push this drone and explore your surroundings for longer. With the Pro Plus you get the addition of the built-in controller screen. The 5.5” display delivers a high definition view of the skies and as it’s twice as bright as a standard smart device, it’s a lot easier to view outdoors. Plus, not needing to use your phone with the controller means you’ll save your phone battery and your flights won’t be interrupted by incoming calls and texts.
