Aerodynamic Titanium & Magnesium Alloy Body: The Phantom 4 Advance +
titanium & magnesium alloy body reduces
weight while keeping stiffness at a maximum to minimize vibration. The Phantom
4 Pro's sleek and aerodynamically designed body minimizes buffeting when flying in
strong winds and against gusts from any angle, keeping its movements predictable
and precise. The deeply integrated gimbal and the new placement of battery lift
Phantom 4 Advance +'s center of gravity, improving balance, enhancing agility and adding
more accuracy to how it reacts to your commands.
Flight Autonomy: Equipped with DJI's Flight Autonomy system
made up of five vision sensors, dual-band satellite positioning (GPS and
GLONASS), ultrasonic rangefinders, and redundant
sensors, the Phantom 4 Advance +d can hover precisely in places without GPS and
navigate complex environments. The dual forward
vision sensors can see as far as 30-meters out in front, enable auto brake, and
hover or detour in front of obstacles within a 15-meter range.
- Visions System: The main components of the Vision System are
located on the front and bottom of the Phantom 4 Advance +d, including two
stereo vision sensors and two ultrasonic sensors. The Vision System uses
ultrasound and image data to help the aircraft maintain its current
position, enabling precision hovering indoors or in environments where a GPS
signal is not available. The Vision System constantly scans for obstacles,
allowing the Phantom 4 Advance +d to avoid them by going over, around, or
- Obstacle Sensing w/ Assisted Braking: Powered by the
Obstacle Sensing, the aircraft will now be able to actively brake when
obstacles are detected around the aircraft. Note that Obstacle Sensing
function works best when lighting is adequate and the obstacle is clearly
marked or textured. The aircraft must fly at no more than 31 mph (50 kph) to
allow sufficient braking distance.
Sensor Redundancy: The Phantom 4 Advance +d features dual compass
modules and dual IMU units, making it more reliable. Compasses and IMUs are
important sensors to ensure a stable flight and the Phantom 4 Advance +d
constantly compares the data it receives through both pairs. This data is run
through advanced algorithms to check accuracy and any inaccurate data is simply
discarded without affecting flight, keeping flight steady and reliable.
Flight Modes: Different productions require different flight
characteristics, and the Phantom 4 Advance + offers four modes for flight: P
(Positioning), A (Altitude), S (Sport), T (Tripod). Switching between them allows pilots
to get the control they need, whether they seek smoothness, simplicity,
intelligent navigation or speed. Both the infrared sensing system and vision
sensors are enabled in these modes for a safer flight experience.
- P-Mode (Positioning): In Positioning Mode, TapFly, ActiveTrack,
obstacle sensing and positioning features are available with a maximum speed
of 31 mph.
- S-Mode (Sport): Sport Mode adds extra agility and higher speed,
reaching 45 mph.
- A-Mode (Altitude): Altitude Mode switches off satellite
stabilization and holds the Phantom 4 Advance +'s altitude. It is ideal for
experienced pilots looking to capture smoother footage with a maximum speed
of 36 mph.
- T (Tripod): Tripod Mode, which limits speed to 4mph provides
precision control for fine framing and indoor flying.
Intelligent Flight Modes: The Phantom 4 offers a variety of
Intelligent Flight modes that make piloting and aerial photography easier.
- Draw: Draw is a brand new technology for waypoint control. Simply
draw a route on the controller's screen and the Phantom 4 Advance + will move in
that direction while keeping its altitude locked. This allows the pilot to
focus on camera control and enables more complex shots. There are two Draw
modes that can be used in different scenarios -
Forward (aircraft follows the route at a constant speed with the camera
facing in the direction of flight) & Free (aircraft only moves along the
route when instructed. In this mode, the camera can face in any direction
during a flight).
- ActiveTrack: The Phantom 4 Advance + automatically recognizes subjects,
follows and captures them as they move, making it easier to get complex
shots. Following fast-moving objects can be very challenging, but advanced
image recognition algorithms used by the Phantom 4 Advance + allow it to recognize
and track the object while keeping it in frame. This new algorithm also
recognizes more subjects, from people to vehicles to animals, and will
adjust its flight dynamics to match, ensuring smoother shots. You can choose
between 3 ActiveTrack flight modes - Trace (follows behind or in front of a subject
avoiding obstacles automatically), Profile (flies alongside a subject at a
variety of angles to get profile shots of the subject), & Spotlight (keeps the camera trained on a subject while the
aircraft flies almost anywhere).
- TapFly: Fly in any direction visible on-screen with a simple tap.
Tap anywhere on-screen to smoothly adjust the direction of flight while
automatically avoiding obstacles and tap the screen again or use
control sticks to change direction. A new AR route function shows the
aircraft's real-time flight direction for reference as its route is
adjusted. As it can be difficult to control altitude, course, speed and
camera pitch simultaneously using joysticks, TapFly Free allows a pilot to
set the direction of flight, allowing them to turn the Phantom 4 Advance + or tilt
the gimbal as required without changing the direction of flight. In total,
there are two TapFly modes - Forward (tap to fly in the selected direction)
& Free (locks the forward direction of the Phantom without
locking the camera direction allowing it to turn).
- Terrain Follow: The Downward Vision System is utilized
in Terrain Follow Mode to maintain a height above ground between 1 and 10
meters. This mode is designed for use on grassland sloped at no more than
20°. When this mode is enabled, the aircraft's current height will be
recorded. The aircraft will maintain the recorded height during flight and
ascend when the slope rises. However, the aircraft will not descend in
- Gesture Mode: Using Gesture Mode, selfies can be captured easily
using a few gestures without the remote controller. Advanced computer vision
technology allows the Phantom 4 Advance + to take instructions through gestures.
The subject simply lifts their arms when facing the camera and the aircraft
will recognize this movement by locking on and placing the subject in the
center of the frame. When ready for a photo, the subject holds their arms
out to signal the aircraft. A three second countdown will begin, making time
to strike a pose, allowing moments to be captured without the remote
- Tripod Mode: In Tripod Mode, the maximum flight speed is limited
to 5.6 mph (9 kph) and the braking distance is reduced to 6.6 ft (2 m).
Responsiveness to stick movements is also reduced for smoother more
Additional Flight Settings: The Intelligent Flight modes
include Course Lock, Home Lock, Point of Interest (POI), Follow Me. and
Waypoints features to assist in capturing professional shoots during the flight.
Course Lock and Home Point lock ensure the lock of aircraft orientation,
allowing you to focus more on other operations. Point of Interest, Follow Me and
Waypoints mode enable aircraft to fly automatically according to the pre-set
- Course Lock: Lock the current nose direction as the aircraft's
forward direction; the aircraft will move in the locked directions
regardless of its orientation (yaw angle).
- Home Lock: Pull the controller's stick backward to move the
aircraft toward its recorded Home Point.
- Point Of Interest (POI): The aircraft will orbit around the
subject automatically to allow the operator to be more focus on framing
their shoot on the subject in Point of Interest (POI).
- Follow Me: A virtual tether is created between the aircraft and
the controller so that the aircraft can track your movement as you move.
- Waypoints: Record a flight path, then the aircraft will fly along
the same path repeatedly while you control the camera and orientation.
Return-to-Home (RTH) + Precision Landing: The Return-to-Home (RTH)
function brings the aircraft back to the last recorded Home Point. There are
three types of RTH modes - Smart RTH, Low Battery RTH, and Failsafe RTH. The
aircraft can even sense and actively attempt to avoid obstacles during RTH,
provided that the lighting conditions are adequate for the Forward Vision System
(FVS). While landing, the Phantom 4 Advance +d automatically scans and attempts to
match the terrain features underneath during Return-to-Home (RTH). When current
terrain matches the Home Point terrain, the Phantom 4 Advance +d will start
landing immediately to achieve precision landing. The DJI GO 4 app will show a
terrain feature mismatch prompt if matching fails.
- Smart RTH: In its upgraded Return to Home mode, the Phantom
4 Pro can automatically choose the best route to return home depending on
environmental conditions. It records its route as it flies, allowing it to
return along the same route avoiding obstacles if the control signal is
disconnected. Based on its altitude at the time of disconnection, the
Phantom 4 Advance + is also able to adjust its flight path to avoid obstacles it
has seen during its flight. At takeoff, the Phantom 4 Advance + will record the
scene below and compare its recording with what it sees as it returns, for
more precise landing. It can also detect the ground to see whether there is
suitable spot for landing. If any obstacles are found, or there is water on
the ground, it will alert the pilot and hover at an appropriate height,
helping the aircraft to land more safely.
- Failsafe RTH: The Forward Vision System allows the aircraft to
create a real-time map of its flight route as it flies. If the Home Point
was successfully recorded and the compass is functioning normally, Failsafe
RTH will be automatically activated if the remote controller signal is lost
for more than three seconds. The aircraft will plan its return route and
retrace its original flight route home. The aircraft will hover for 10
seconds at its current location. When it regains signal connection it will
wait for pilot commands. The Return-to- Home process may be interrupted and
the pilot given control of the aircraft if the remote controller signal
connection is re-established.
- Low Battery RTH: The low battery level failsafe is triggered when
the DJI Intelligent Flight Battery is depleted to a point that may affect
the safe return of the aircraft. Users are advised to return home or land
the aircraft immediately when prompted. The DJI GO 4 app will display a
notice when a low battery warning is triggered. The aircraft will
automatically return to the Home Point if no action is taken after a
ten-second countdown. The user can cancel the RTH procedure by pressing the
RTH button on the remote controller. The thresholds for these warnings are
automatically determined based on the aircraft's current altitude and
distance from the Home Point. The aircraft will land automatically if
the current battery level can only support the aircraft long enough to
descend from its current altitude. The user can still use the remote
controller to alter the aircraft's orientation during the landing process.
Flight Recorder: Flight data is automatically recorded to the internal
storage of the aerial drone. This includes flight telemetry, aircraft status
information, and other parameters. To access this data, connect the aircraft to
your Windows PC through the Phantom 4 Advance +'s microUSB port.
Intelligent 30 Minute Battery: Professional aerial imaging
benefits from longer flight times. The Phantom 4 Advance + has a maximum flight time of 30
minutes thanks to its high efficiency motors and custom-designed large-capacity
5870mAh battery, providing more time in the air to capture the perfect shot. The DJI GO
4 app shows battery lifetime and calculates remaining flight times according to
distance traveled and more. It will give alerts when it reaches a minimum safe
amount required for a safe journey back to the takeoff point. An advanced
battery management system is also in place to prevent overcharging and over
draining. When placed in longer term storage, batteries will discharge power to
maintain good health.<

High Performance Camera: The Phantom 4 Advance + camera system has
been significantly upgraded from the Phantom 4, improving every part of the
camera including sensor size, resolution, image processing system, and more,
making it the most powerful Phantom camera ever. The onboard camera has been
redesigned to use a 1" 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom engineered lens made
up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups, it is the first DJI camera to
use a mechanical shutter, eliminating rolling shutter distortion which can occur
when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed. In
effect, it is as powerful as many traditional ground cameras. More powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps,
both with a 100Mbps bitrate. Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything
is captured with more image detail and the image data needed for advanced
20MP 1" CMOS: Sensor size is more important to image quality
than the number of pixels because a larger sensor captures more information in
every pixel, improving dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio, and low light
performance. The 20-megapixel 1" CMOS sensor in the Phantom 4 Advance + is almost four
times the size of the Phantom 4's 1/2.3in sensor. It uses larger pixels and has
a maximum ISO of 12800 as well as increased contrast. It is good enough for
images to be used immediately, while also capturing enough detail for advanced
High Resolution Lens: The resolution and contrast of a lens is
critical to image quality, because only a quality lens can capture sharp, vivid
photos at high resolutions. The brand new Phantom 4 Advance + camera has an aerial
optimized F2.8-F11 wide-angle lens with a 24mm equivalent focal length. It features
eight elements (2 aspherical) arranged in seven groups that fit into a smaller,
more compact frame. Its images are consistently detailed with low distortion and
low dispersion, ensuring that photos and videos are sharp and vivid.
Mechanical & Electronic Shutter: Aerial imaging is not only used to
capture landscapes; it brings new perspectives to everything from action scenes
to motor racing. Capturing objects moving at high speed has always been a
challenge for flying cameras using an electronic shutter. This is why the
Phantom 4 Advance + is the first DJI Phantom to use a mechanical shutter and a
large-aperture prime lens. A mechanical shutter with a max speed of 1/2000s
eliminates rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast
moving subjects or when flying at high speed. The electronic shutter has also
been improved with a max shutter speed of 1/8000seconds,
and a new Burst Mode shoot capable of shooting 14 fps at 20 megapixels to catch
the perfect moment.
Auto Focus: It also
supports auto focus by half-pressing the shutter button, and has a focus range,
from 1m to infinity. Always refocus before capturing additional shots in the
event that the subject has moved beyond the focus point. Focus at infinity if
the subject is over 98ft away. Refocusing is also needed when switching from
close shots to long shots during recording.
Gimbal Operation Modes: Two gimbal operation modes are available -
Follow or FPV. In Follow mode, the angle between the gimbal's orientation and
aircraft's nose remains constant at all times. In FPV mode, the gimbal will
synchronize with the movement of the aircraft to provide a first-person
perspective flying experience.
4K Video Processing System: An enhanced video processing system allows
video to be captured in cinema and production optimized DCI 4K/60 (4096 x
2160/60fps) at a bitrate of 100Mbps, enabling you to get high-resolution slow
motion shots. The Phantom 4 Advance + also supports the H.265 video codec (Maximum
resolution 4096X2160/30fps). For a given bitrate, H.265 doubles the amount of
image processing as H.264, resulting in significantly enhanced image quality.
Record in the high dynamic range D-log mode to make the most of this image data
for color grading.

to 128GB). One 16GB microSD card is included. The photo and video files
can then be downloaded directly to your computer via the camera's microUSB port.
Remote Controller w/ Built-in Screen: The included remote
controller features a 5.5" high luminance monitor with integrated DJI GO for
full control. The built-in 5.5" screen delivers 1080p resolution with 1000 cd/m2
of brightness providing excellent HD visibility in direct sunlight. Use the
controller's joysticks to control the flight pattern of the drone, while
push-buttons and dials control camera functions. The integrated HD screen
provides a live video feed of the Phantom 4 Advance +'s gimbal camera, plus vital
flight data. The controller is powered by a built-in, rechargeable 5 hour
DJI GO App: More challenging shoots require a real-time
video feed, vital flight statistics and advanced settings. These are
traditionally handled through a smart device (phone or tablet), making the smart
device essential to aerial imaging. The included controller's LCD touchscreen is
equipped with the DJI GO 4 app for optimal flight control, video recording, and
photo capture (all without the need of another device). As the DJI GO app is
built into the controller's screen, hardware and software can be fully
optimized, allowing you to edit and share instantly.
- Flight Functions: Using the DJI GO 4 app, a large
number of Intelligent Flight Modes are available. Vital flight data and
video transmission status are easy to check in-app, further enhancing
control efficiency and convenience. After each flight, flight routes and
data are automatically recorded and synchronized to the attached DJI GO 4
account, keeping it readily accessible for you to review. Both flight logs
and data are easy to record and review.
- Camera Functions: The app also provides access to full
manual camera controls, including ISO, aperture, shutter speed, image
formats, and more. In addition, the DJI GO 4 includes editing features for
quick editing and sharing to social media and even live streaming.
Lightbridge Video Transmission System: The Phantom 4 Advance +
utilizes an upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system for live video
feed between the aerial drone's gimbal camera and the controller's built-in
monitor. The Lightbridge video transmission system uses advanced transmission
technologies and can automatically adjust to environmental conditions. It
ensures high quality, low latency image transmission across its range and offers
pilots a better shooting experience. Traditional analog video transmission
occupies a larger bandwidth and is more susceptible to interference. It also
suffers from poor image quality and short range. WiFi transmission also compares
poorly, suffering from low latency, lengthy re-connection times, and short
transmission distances due to the high cost of more powerful Wi-Fi transmission.
- Operating Frequency: 2.400GHz to 2.483GHz
- Maximum Transmission Distance: 4.3 miles / 7km
