more accuracy to how it reacts to your commands.
FlightAutonomy: FlightAutonomy is an advanced aerial intelligence and
flight automation platform. It is made up of a complex network of ten component
groups including seven cameras - forward, rearward and downward dual vision
sensors and the primary camera - an infrared sensing system, dual-band satellite
positioning (GPS and GLONASS), two downward facing ultrasonic rangefinders,
redundant IMUs and compasses, and a group of powerful, specialized computing
cores. The Phantom 4 Pro+ acquires a real-time view of its environment and
information about the height and position of nearby obstacles to create a 3D map
it can locate itself within. The IMU and compasses collect crucial flight
status, speed and direction data, while redundant IMUs and compasses monitor
critical data and rule out possible errors, dramatically enhancing the
reliability of flight.
Obstacle Sensing & Avoidance: Flight Autonomy is expanded with an
additional set of high-resolution stereo vision sensors placed at the rear in
addition to the pair placed at the front as well as infrared sensing systems
placed on the left and right sides. This network creates a total of 5-direction
of obstacle sensing and 4-direction of obstacle avoidance, protecting the
Phantom 4 Pro+ from more obstacles and giving filmmakers the confidence to
capture more complex images.
Six Camera Navigation System: Three sets of dual vision sensors form a
6-camera navigation system that works constantly to calculate the relative speed
and distance between the aircraft and an object. Using this network of forward,
rearward and downward vision sensors, the Phantom 4 Pro+ is able to hover
precisely in places without GPS when taking off indoors, or on balconies, or
even when flying through windows with minimal pilot control. In the unlikely
event that front and downward sensors are unable to operate, the aircraft can
still hover in place using the rear stereo vision system. The Phantom 4 Pro+ also
is able to fly in complex environments at a flight speed of up to 31mph (50kph)
while avoiding obstacles in its path. In Narrow Sensing Mode, the Phantom 4 Pro+
narrows its sensing scope enabling it to see in more detail and fly through
Infrared Sensing System: The Phantom 4 Pro+ is the first DJI
aircraft to use an infrared sensing system. Placed on the left, and right sides
of the aircraft, these measure the distance between the aircraft and any
obstacles using infrared 3D scanning. When in Beginner Mode and Tripod Mode,
these sensors have a horizontal field of view of 70° and a vertical field of
view of 20°, providing a wide view of the scene to the sides of the Phantom, and
a maximum range of 23'. Traditional ultrasonic sensors only have a detection
range of 3-5m and may be confused when affected by propeller vibration. The
infrared sensing system is able to sense larger areas and measure the distance
between the aircraft, identifying the closest objects accurately while avoiding
interference, providing more reliable sensing and protection.
Flight Modes: Different productions require different flight
characteristics, and the Phantom 4 Pro+ 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 Pro'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 Pro+ 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: The aircraft follows the route at a constant speed
with the camera facing in the direction of flight.
- Free: The aircraft only moves along the route when
instructed. In this mode, the camera can face in any direction during a
- ActiveTrack: The Phantom 4 Pro+ 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 Pro+ 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: Follow behind or in front of a subject, avoiding
- Profile: Fly alongside a subject at a variety of angles to
get profile shots of the subject.
- Spotlight: Keep 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 Pro+ or tilt
the gimbal as required without changing the direction of flight. In total,
there are now three TapFly modes -
- Forward: Tap to fly in the selected direction.
- Backward: Tap to fly in the opposite direction of the tap,
i.e. tap in the bottom right corner of the screen to fly backward
towards the top left.
- Free: Lock the forward direction of the Phantom without
locking the camera direction allowing it to turn.
- Return to Home: 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 Pro+ is also able to adjust its flight path to avoid obstacles it
has seen during its flight. At takeoff, the Phantom 4 Pro+ 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.
- 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 Pro+ 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
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 Pro's microUSB port.
Intelligent 30 Minute Battery: Professional aerial imaging benefits
from longer flight times. The Phantom 4 Pro+ 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.
Carry Case: The Phantom 4 Pro comes with a foam carrying
case with handle.

High Performance Camera: The Phantom 4 Pro+ 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
1" 20MP 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 1" 20-megapixel CMOS sensor in the Phantom 4 Pro+ 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 Pro+ 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 Pro+ 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.
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 Pro+ 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 wireless
remote controller is responsible for most physical
controls of the Phantom 4 Pro+ drone including piloting and aerial capture. The
wireless remote controller provides joystick control along with an integrated
LCD touchscreen with the DJI GO 4 app built-in. A 5.5" LCD touchscreen integrated with the Phantom 4
Pro's controller offers a 1080p live video feed of the Phantom 4 Pro+'s camera,
along with 1000 cd/m2 of brightness - more than twice as bright as
conventional smart devices. It
makes bright, vivid colors easily visible in direct sunlight. The controller is
powered by a built-in, rechargeable 5 hour battery.
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 Pro+
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.
- 2.4GHz & 5.8 GHzDual-Band: The Phantom 4 Pro+ controller's upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system that adds 5.8
GHz transmission support. The ability to choose between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz allows
pilots to cut through interference and eliminates image lag caused when flying
in an area with extensive 2.4GHz frequency use. Normally, Wi-Fi
video transmission systems use a 2.4GHz frequency to work with a controller
using a 5.8GHz frequency as this prevents interference that can occur when both
use the same frequency. If using the same frequency the video transmission
system and the remote controller will interfere with each other, causing image
- 4.3 Mile Wireless Range: The Lightbridge HD video
transmission system used in the Phantom 4 Pro+ uses TDM (Time Division
Multiplexing) to transmit signals, allowing it to send controller signals and
receive video transmission signals at the same frequency. When switched on, the
Phantom 4 Pro+ evaluates local signal levels, automatically choosing the
transmission frequency with the lowest level of interference. This ensures the
optimum range of a maximum video transmission of 4.3 miles (unobstructed, free
HDMI: The controller's full-size HDMI port lets you share a live video
stream on the big screen.
