DJI Phantom Drones, Parts, and Accessories Online Store
The DJI Phantom series is the drone that propelled DJI to become top drone manufacturer in the world. Dating back to 2013, the first-ever Phantom drone was just a simple UAV with a GoPro camera and 10-minute battery life. Fast-forward to 2018 and now on its fourth generation with a 30 minute flight time, 4 mile control range, 5-directional obstacle sensing, and a powerful 1” camera sensor.
What Phantom drone to buy? As there are many Phantom models, we will be going over the three most recent versions of the Phantom 4. From oldest to newest we have the , Phantom 4 Advanced, Phantom 4 Pro, and the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0. All three come with the iconic and original quadcopter design of the first Phantom. So what are the differences?
You will get fewer sensors with the Phantom Advanced versus the Phantom Advanced Pro. With the latter, you'll get backward, and side obstacle avoidance vision sensors. Both models have a 1” camera sensor with a mechanical shutter producing high quality 4K video and 20 megapixel still images.
The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 has an upgraded transmission system known as OccuSync instead of the already extremely powerful Lightbridge technology which is found on other DJI drones. In addition to a stronger, more reliable, higher quality video and control range the drone features wing tipped propellers which make the drone significantly quieter. Currently as of May 30th, 2019 a new Phantom UAS has not been released and the Pahntom 4 Pro V2 is currently no longer be sold by DJI. If you are doing surveying and need cetemeter level accuracy we recommend the Phantom 4 RTK, this UAS kit has everything you need to become a surveyor.
