DJI Phantom 4 Advanced Takes Lineup's Original Drone Out Of Commission
The DJI Phantom 4 Advanced is the latest member of the Phantom 4 lineup of drones. The new addition has people scratching their heads because it does not have any radical difference from the original and the Pro. It combines the best of both worlds with a price: the regular Phantom 4 drone has to die.
The company behind the aerial machines announced yesterday the arrival of DJI Phantom 4 Advanced. It will go on sale at the same time the original Phantom 4 is taken off the racks: on Apr. 30. Those who rue the passing of the old drone may find some joy with the new one. That is because the starting price is $50 less at $1,349, TechCrunch reports.
Aside from the price, though, there will not be much of a difference between the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced and its older siblings. The latest addition to the series has a bigger 1-inch sensor that can take 20-megapixel photos. The Advanced version is also capable of taking 4K resolution videos while in the air at 60fps. It is also outfitted with a mechanical shutter and an adjustable aperture that ranges from f2.8-f11. It gives the user better control and at the same time, makes taking photos and videos in low light easier.
The DJI Phantom 4 Advanced also copies its sibling's intelligent flight mode that allows users to preprogram the drone's flight. CNet also notes that the new member of the series does not have a rear vision or even infrared sensors. Because of that, the drone will not be able to avoid obstacles sideways and backward by itself. The Advanced controller also does not have support for the 5.8Hz frequency band.
Despite those caveats, the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced does have its perks. For one, customers who buy the new model will also be able to purchase the company's special controller with a brighter display. This same controller is also faster since it can fly up to 14 meters per second in P-Mode. Additionally, the transmission distance is longer at 7 kilometers. The drone can remain on the air for up to 30 minutes.
