Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
1) Easy to fly: the stabilization in P mode is amazing. The drone doesn't drift and has rock solid shots when hovering. A new pilot can easily pick it up and learn without the nuances and risk of a RC helicopter.
2) Smooth Cinematic Shots: I shoot in 1080P60FPS and get smooth shots not only high up, but close to the ground. You aren't limited to a camera slider, or crane, and have all the control in your hands to frame the perfect shot.
3) Raw video/pictures for good post production color correction.
4) great price for all of the features - there really is nothing better at this price point, unless you want the phantom 3 adv/pro which is about half and not much worse than the phantom 4
5) fun to fly in sport mode - it goes really fast! This is where you may actually crash it as you want to fly low and fast
6) DJI Go App records video to your device that you can edit and share in app. Great stuff. User friendly. Intuitive
7) intelligent flight modes -point of interest is great as you can control camera and distance while it orbits your shot. Way points are smooth so you can focus on getting the shot after setting your points rather than flying the craft. Active track and follow modes are in the bad section.
1) BUGS: following tradition, DJI releases a product that has significant flaws and bugs that may never be fixed - all of which they don't tell you about. So let me tell YOU what to expect before you buy it:
a) gimbal calibration bug: the gimbal will not calibrate (i experienced this) and fails at 71-72% calibration on a perfectly level surface. Eventually it calibrated and all was fine.
b) propeller warning in sport mode - this random warning told me my propellor was loose or fell off, when in reality it just triggered when I was flying in sport mode. Freaky, but no big deal.
c) horizon leveling: previous models had significant gimball drift (horizon shows at not level). So dji put another compass/IMU for reliability purposes. Once you get your horizon calibrated on a perfectly level surface, you should be fine. However, when you need to make some adjustments in app (like trimming) the horizon will change to level, but then immediately "snap" back to skewed left or right and there is nothing you can do about it. This is a problem I doubt DJI is willing to address as it was present in previous models, and is STILL present in the P4.
d) artifacts in video: DJI put a "3D smoothing" selection as on in the app for better video. It works great at night for their highly compressed video to keep things looking ok, but actually makes video quality very very very poor especially in the lower half (think low quality choppy youtube video at 240p) at day. Thankfully you can turn it off, but you STILL get artifacts in the video, but not as pronounced.
d)FPV -or first person view cuts out randomly when in clear line of sight within the advertised range, then just randomly begins again. Annoying to say the least. Previous models did not have this issue. You can improve video quality and range by reducing the quality sent to the receiver, but you sill have issues with intermittent 1 second cut outs. Luckily your video on the drone isn't affected, so its just annoying when you see it on your device.
2) camera is NOT anything professional, and 4K means nothing for image quality. There is significant image distortion at the edges of the camera, and is very 'cheap'. If you set up the wrong frame rate, and sensitivity settings, you see 'jello' image distortion in the center of the videos. I am able to see some significant chromatic aberration as well. Faint blue and brown tones are present in water videos. with all that said though, the camera does do a good job with HD video. Just don't expect professional quality. If you arent looking critically at the video, or are a complete novice, you may never notice these things. However, I do and am a little put off by it.
3)Range: Now this is in the BAD category, not because of the range, but because of the range. What? Let me explain. The advertised range is for the remote controlling the drones movements, not for the video feed part of the remote that goes to the remote. So you can 'technically' fly it very far away, but you lose video feed at half the advertised distance of the remote. This is deceptive marketing. You really only get about a mile and a half (which is plenty) rather than the 3 point whatever. Also, when DJI says it must be in 'clear line of sight' it really must be in clear line of sight or your video cuts out. You can literally be flying around a leafy tree 30 yards away, and few seconds after going behind that tree, you lose video signal. Keep line of sight, but know the limitations, especially when flying close to the ground. If you cant see it, you WILL lose video feed.
1) deceptive and flat out lies in product specs for performance
a) active track/follow just doesn't work as advertised & marketed. It just sucks unless you are moving slowly, even then you get poor shots. Dont expect to drive a car, bike, or even run sideways and have it keep you perfectly framed. It will lose you.
b) battery life is advertised as 28 minutes, yet real world will get 22-23 minutes tops (with gps off etc) With everything else on like you would actually fly it, count on about 20 minutes of real flying before you should land.
2) DJI return policy: This is critical (so don't buy from DJI to save on sales tax). I learned this the hard way. If you FLY your drone, you CANNOT return it. I get it, people are dumb and crash it and say its not their fault. But every single BUG, poor quality video, error message, etc was found out DURING FLIGHT. This is akin to a car salesman saying you cannot return your car after the test drive showed the engine was shot. Once DJI has your money, they will do everything in their power to prevent you from returning it, but they will be happy to 'repair' aka give you the same drone you just bought and deny any bugs/quality issues are real, or keep it for an unreasonable amount of time to test why it went wrong, then send it back to you in the same condition.
You cannot find out about how bad it is until you actually use it, which invalidates the return policy by DJI. Yes, if there is a defect, they will REPLACE it, but you gotta find out within less than 7 days of purchase, and actually fill out their form. They jack with you and say sorry, then don't even give you the form as an attachment. Once you go get the form on your own, you must completely fill it out and give it back, on and by the way, if you threw away the stickers they tell you to remove from packaging, or that little plastic bag that the remote came in, they WILL NOT PROCESS your refund. They do everything they can to get you to buy this drone, then do everything they can in bad faith to invalidate your rights as a consumer. Even if you start the return process, if you have not completed it within 7 days, you are OUT OF LUCK.
So what to do? Id buy the drone, but not from DJI directly. Amazon, apple store, best buy etc... When the competition catches up, I'd be looking at other drones from reputable companies. Until then, ill be flying my phantom 4.
P.S. if you want to save some money, and get about the same drone, and you aren't making 4k video (lets face it guys, most people cant even view or edit 4k video yet) I'd recommend the phantom 3 advanced, which is less than half of the Phantom 4 at the time I wrote this article. Stay informed, and know what you are getting into before you buy this. Don't believe at all the hype, and don't be scared to buy it because of the glitches and deception that DJI has. I bought this thing knowing there would be quality and bug issues and love flying it. Its just not cracked up to what it was advertised to be.
I have been flying drones for years, owned 2 of the P3's, upgraded to the P4.
On a return flight after filming some paddleboard races, the P4 became unresponsive, spinning out of control and dropped into the water 50 yards in front of me.
After linking with customer service I was asked to upload flight records, which I did.
DJI says they cant find the latest flight records, my email login and info has vanished from their records and they offered a 15% discount if I buy a new one?
My P3 operates well, this new P4 is a flawed device.
Beware and wait til they get the issues fixed
Here is what I can say about this incredible machine:
1. Build quality is amazing. The weight is substantial, it is a solid machine. Compared to my Q500, this thing is built like a tank and makes the Q500 feel flimsy and toy-like (and I love my Q500). Although smaller than the Q500 this gives me the feeling of I got what I paid for, hands down.
2. The included styrofoam box is pretty amazing. My Q500's inner is styrofoam as well, but falls apart and leaves flakes of styrofoam on the machine. This is coated with something that makes it hard so it does not flake apart. The latch that locks is solid. Opening the box, it is amazing how compact the package is inside this small case. Compartments for storing two batteries (though one is included), and technically you could hold 3 with 2 in the case slots, and one in the quad. Batteries store on the left side. On the right side compartment for the charger, cables, and the nylon bag of two sets of rotors. The rear is a snug compartment for the controller, and it does fit in snugly. The front slot has the documentation. A very nice free case, compact, solid, and not bad for people that just want to pack the quad from location to location and do not require a more expensive plastic case. More than meets my needs.
3. It took well over and hour for me to unpack this, setup the controller and settings (based on a lot of reviews I read on YouTube), updating the software on both the quad, and the controller (a nice thing is there is an included cable that links your iPad, or Phone to the quad to update, where the Q500 requires you to pull out a cable in the battery compartment, and connect to a computer). You probably could fly this with everything set to the defaults, but you would not be fully utilizing the software.
4. The DJI Go app is complicated. I am using with an iPhone 6+. In comparison to the Q500 settings, the Phantom 4 is way more of a professional device, with far more settings and options to go through. Whereas the Q500, you could literally take out of the box and get flying in about 15 minutes, with this machine you will certainly want to know what all of the settings and controls do before you simply get in the air. My fear was not knowing what everything did in case something went wrong and I had to assume total control in a bad situation. Automation is good, but you need to know how to operate this machine with all those automated functions turned off.
5. The camera- I am on the fence about in comparison to the Q500. I know it is basically the same camera as in the Phantom 3 Professional, with some minor improvements, and I am still tweaking with the camera settings, but I still think the quality of the Q500 4K is slightly better with respect to sharpness and detail. Perhaps when I fully get the settings manually adjusted I will change that statement, but out of the box compared to my Q500 out of the box, the Q500 is a bit clearer. There are way more gimbal settings and adjustments on the Phantom 4, which I like. I did find that the Phantom 4 does not record sound from the camera at all (I did not know that). The Q500 4K does record sound. It probably makes no difference in the end, but I find that the sound of flight in my Q500 videos adds something extra. Lastly on the camera, I will certainly be investing is a nice set of ND filters in the future so I can slow down the shutter speed and get a more cinematic look to the video. The rule of thumb is that your shutter speed should be twice the frame rate- and to get proper exposure with those manual settings you will need filters to achieve that. Most people will shoot video for fun, so it likely would not matter if you were to keep the settings to auto. Unlike things I have read about the stock UV filter on the camera, mine unscrewed with ease. I have also read that Phantom 3 Professional filters fit the Phantom 4. The included filter installed I have read is already a UV filter. The plastic gimbal / camera guard is nice, one piece that just snaps on for storage and covers the camera lens. I ditched the included 16GB MicroSD card from the start for a 64GB card, and have no issues with a budget priced card that met the published specs. You don't need a super high end card to record on this machine. Save your money for a second battery.
6. The controller is amazing. It charged fast, and the balance in my hands with the iPhone 6+ is perfect to the point that I feel that I do not need a neck strap for it. Perhaps with something heavy attached like a full sized iPad I could see my arms getting tired holding after a while. Love the tilt of the holder for the phone, and the way this folds up for storage. Tried out the "Return to Home" button a few times, and quad came to land itself literally within inches of where it took off. My Q500 sometimes will get within 10 feet of the home point when doing the same. The Q500 has the screen built in, but honestly, it can't keep up to the resolution of my attached phone on the Phantom, and there is no lag in transmission like my Q500 has. I flew this machine out as far as I could see it, way farther than my Q500 can go, and there was no lag in either control, and no loss of video signal.
7. The speed of the Phantom is incredible. I did not even try the Sport mode yet. Reaction time from the controller is almost instant, far faster in response time compared to my Q500, even when at a distance. Descent speed seemed about on par with the Q500 when coming down to land from altitude. The Q500 seems more stable to land as I think the stance of the legs are wider. At first I kept thinking the Phantom would tip over- it never did. The Q500 does not auto-take off and land with a button command, only in the Return to Home mode will it auto-land. The automated functions of the Phantom are the selling point. The only one I had time to try out was the Active Track, where the quad will follow and film a subject that is selected within the app. Probably my favorite feature. To get the Q500 to do something like that you need to have the subject holding the controller, or the Wizard so it knows what to lock onto. The Phantom 4 does this through the visual aids and the software, very cool. The other flight modes look amazing too, but I want to read up on how to properly use them before I try them out as I would hate to crash this as it is expensive. The last feature that also worked amazing was the obstacle avoidance. Even flying this at night in a dimly lit parking lot, there was enough light that the Phantom would see a light pole and just stop and hover when it realized it could not go around it or over it. Will have to play around with that feature more to fully trust it, but it is great to have. The Q500 has nothing like it.
8. The battery- wish it came with 2 like my Q500 did, they are much more expensive. I have had a second one on order from DJI since I ordered the Phantom and still have not received it. I have seen the battery last about 23 minutes- but I am flying in 39 degree weather, so I can see how I could not get the published 28 minutes run time. The included charger can charge both the battery and the controller at the same time.
9. Quick release props- amazing, the ones with the black circles go on the rotors with the black dots, the silver circle ones go on the rotors with no black dots, push down and a quarter turn and on and off, not unlike a child-proof pill bottle, same concept. Unlike the Q500 that rotate on and just seem to tighten until you feel like they are on tight enough (you are really never sure), these lock, no questions asked. Amazing. There are 2 sets included like the Q500.
To sum it up I would have to say that this is an amazing piece of hardware that you could spend hours learning to fully use, or not based on how you plan to use it. For a professional photographer, there are simply some amazing things you can do with this that are very difficult to pull off with a quad that is less automated. This machine will do the things I have learned to do over time manually, and pull it off with ease and polish given you understand the setup and limits of the hardware. The quality, the features, an easy sell for this price range. If I had anything negative to say about it- it would be that it seems like there are just a ton of updates every time I go to power this thing on, and it appears that it will not fly until everything is updated and checks out- I get that for safety sake, but my Q500 rarely has an update, and never seems to prevent me from starting the machine up if I did not update.
In my opinion, in this price range and feature set, this is THE machine to buy, and sets the standard- not perfect, but really really really good.
* 3/21/2016 Update- taking back to Apple Store to exchange for another. No matter what camera settings I use on this pictures and video are blurry except for one quarter sized area of the frame. DJI suggests exchange as could be lens issue. I've read of similar issues on the Phantom 3, some were camera related, some the lens, some the firmware. Out of the box and with auto settings shouldn't produce something that looks like it came out of a 1999 cell phone. Hopefully the replacement is a better example- understanding these are early production builds.
Contacted DJI customer support, sent all information they asked for and got word today that they will replace my aircraft. I'm so impressed with their response and the resolution. I can't wait to get my Phantom 4 back and go flying again. Thanks DJI!
DJI came through. They held to every single time commitment they made to me and my new drone showed up yesterday. I was a little nervous flying it at first but it came right back to me. Keep up the awesome customer service, DJI!!!!
