DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 vs Phantom 4 Pro - What’s Different This Time Around?
Just recently, drone powerhouse DJI came out with a new and improved version of the Phantom 4 Pro – in the form of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0. While the release took many by surprise, what people want to know most is what’s different in the new iteration.
In that regard, we are the same. That’s why we’ve decided to outline everything that’s different on the DJI Phantom Pro 4 V2.0. From propeller sound to a new transmission technology, we tried our best to cover every detail about DJI’s new drone. Keep scrolling to find out what they are!
A Quieter Propeller
As we all know, the DJI Phantom Pro 4 was a great all-around drone. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not without fault. Despite its amazingly lengthy flight-time, the Phantom Pro 4 wasn’t the quietest while in mid-air – which holds true for most drone available today.
But DJI seemed to have noticed that error and made it a goal to eliminate the constant buzzing, and that’s what we currently have with the new DJI Phantom Pro 4 V2.0. The new drone is equipped with a new propulsion system partnered with a FOC sinusoidal driver ESCs and 9455S quick-release propellers, which decreases flight noise by over 60 percent (via PetaPixel).
A Jump To The New OcuSync Transmission Technology
When it comes to transmission, the DJI Phantom Pro V2.0 is on a whole new different level than its predecessor. If you remember, the Phantom Pro 4 was only equipped with the old LightBridge transmission system, which was much more limited in terms of features.
In the DJI Phantom Pro 4 V2.0, DJI has chosen to integrate their newest transmission technology, the OcuSync. This new setting allows the new drone to take higher-resolution and low-latency videos, which is a must in any drone user’s checklist
A New Controller
With the DJI Phantom Pro 4 V2.0 adopting a new transmission feature, DJI also upgraded on its controller. This new controller has been optimized for real-time viewing, coming with a bigger 5.5-inch, 1080p resolution built-in display.
Wider Anti-Collision Sensing
Another aspect of the Phantom Pro 4 which DJI revamped is the anti-collision sensor. While the system remains the same in functionality, the detectable range has been increased from 10 meters to 30 meters, which will come in handy when you’re filming in a condensed area.
If you’re interested, the DJI Phantom Pro 4 V2.0 is now available for purchase. It’s currently valued at $1,499 while the Phantom 4 Pro+ V2.0 kit that includes a remote control with an integrated display is priced at $ 1,799.
