Boasting a better camera, advanced obstacle avoidance, extended battery life, and additional intelligent flight modes, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is an update to the Phantom 4 Quadcopter Drone. Its titanium alloy and magnesium alloy construction increases the rigidity and reduces the weight of the frame, and its 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor is able to shoot 4K/60fps video and Burst Mode stills at 14fps.

Superb quality images and gives the ability to take aerial shots and perspectives that would have been impossible without repeated huge outlays of money (not that this isn't a huge outlay in itself of course but it is a one off outlay).
The only negative is the lack of a zoom on the camera but that is presumably just a cost issue - I believe that you can get all sorts of camera additions, including thermal imaging, if you want them.
All in, the choice was between this and the Mavic Pro and this won, at least in part because it is more of a pro unit. No regrets so far. And superb photographs and films already.
If you intend on doing any low light work (indoors, just pre sunrise/post sunset or night flying, the, this version, the Phantom 4 Pro is essential. I'm going to take a wild guess here, and say, at least to You and I, the regular Phantom 4 (appx £1000) - you're paying no more than £100 for the camera bit, at the MOST, and for the Phantom 4 Pro, I'd guess, you're paying most of that £440, towards the better camera. Again, I am guessing, but if you're buying a flying camera, you may as well pay 40% more cost, for 400% more camera. That's all my personal guesstimated opinion, but why strap a 50 pence plastic case to a £700 smart phone?
In Europe and the States at least, these updates are not (yet) mandatory.
DJI have been slow and apparently reluctant to properly explain the purpose of these updates.
I still believe the Phantom 4 Pro deservers a 5 star review, but I would suggest doing a bit of research before purchasing to ensure you are happy with the way DJI handles software updates and legislative compliance.
Original review below
I've wanted a full size quadcopter for years, and I finally decided to buy the Phantom 4 pro.
The first thing that strikes you on unpacking this aircraft is the quality of construction - it looks and feels solid, and about as far from being a 'toy' as you can imagine.
The batteries were pretty discharged when it arrived, so the first thing was to charge the flight battery and controller to 100% before getting on with setting up the application.
Once the battery was fully charged, I downloaded the 'DJI assistant 2' app to my PC and updated the firmware on the quadcopter.
Next step was to install the DJI Go 4 app on my tablet (a Sony Xperia Z4) - and this was the only step where things didn't go too smoothly.
The tablets clamps snugly onto the controller, and connects to it with a standard USB cable - however, the Xperia didn't detect the controller and I was faced with a 'disconnected' message.. A bit of Googling showed that this is a common problem with some tablets, and there is a workaround using the hidden Android Developer menu to force the tablet to detect the USB device.
After connecting the controller, the next step was a controller firmware update (done via the App) - and, following that, an IMU calibration which requires you to put the Phantom on a flat surface and follow instructions to allow it to remove 'drift' from the IMU.
I also took the opportunity to set the maximum height to a sensible limit (I chose 80m).
I should also note that at this point, I registered for DJI's 'Phantom care', which means that in the event of a catastrophic crash, I could purchase a replacement machine for less than £200.
So, after all this and a fresh charge, the only thing to do was to find an open field with no people about for the first flight... Not so easy on Boxing day!
Having finally found an open field, I fitted the blades to the Phantom - this is an easy job, you just push them on and rotate to lock - it takes less than a minute.
Next, I used the Styrofoam case as a handy launch pad - set the Phantom on it, powered everything up and waited for the app to tell me that the home location had been registered - this is a very important step if you don't want to lose your expensive aircraft on its first flight!
Before flying, I set the 'return to home' height in the app to 35m, which I chose to be considerably higher than any obstacles nearby.
So, having done this - I pressed the 'launch' button on the app, and swiped to indicate 'yes, I really do want to launch'... immediately the motors do a little check and next the quadcopter lifts off and hovers, rock solid, at about head height... despite some fairly strong wind which the app warned me about.
Next I applied some throttle and immediately the Phantom climbed absolutely vertically, until I let go of the left stick at which point it stopped. What amazed me was the despite some fairly strong breeze, the video coming back was absolutely rock solid.
Having got a feel for how stable the aircraft was, I did a few circuits around the field, and then tried the 'return to home' function.
This works very, very well - the Phantom climbed up to the pre-set height and then flew back to directly over its launch point - at which point the app told me is was descending..
The Phantom began to descend quite slowly until it was a few metres above the ground - and then it hovered for a while before telling me that the location was not suitable for landing... this was spot on, as there was some tall grass. It was a fairly easy job to take over manually at this point and move to a flatter spot where I carried out a completely hassle free landing.
So - having only flow some small 'toy' quadcopters before, I was amazed at how easy this thing is to fly, and how absolutely stable it remains when there are no control inputs - it's almost like magic. I am very, very impressed.
I spent the rest of my first session taking slightly longer flights, and experimenting with the advanced flight modes - such as Active Track, which worked incredibly well - until after about 25 minutes of flying I got the first battery warning, and used the 'Home' button to finish the flight.
So all in all, I am amazed by this machine - yes, it's very expensive - but if you want a real aircraft that can take beautiful video and stills, with easy handling and very quick setup / packing then this is the machine for you. It's just incredible.
Having used the P4P for a few days, I have noticed some problems with the video recording.
The video on my unit 'stutters' during a pan, and occasionally the gimbal will twitch during flight.
Having done a bit of research, it seems there are some known problems with the gimbal seembly on the early batches of the Phantom 4 Pro - I will be returning mine for an exchange when it's back in stock.
i will still give the P4P a five star rating - the issues are fairly minor (but shouldn't exist on a product at this price) - and many people seem to have no problems at all.
So, I would strongly recommend waiting a few months before buying to ensure you get one from a newer batch.
It's worth mentioning that Amazon have been excellent and have offered a full refund as the product is currently out of stock.
I have received a new Phantom 4 pro which has had the Gimbal issue rectified.
