The DJI Phantom 4 Advanced quadcopter drone is equipped with the integrated upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system with a maximum video transmission range of 4.3mi (7km). An uprated camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4K/60fps video and Burst Mode stills at 14 fps. The FlightAutonomy system includes 5 vision sensors for 2 directions of obstacle sensing and forward-vision obstacle avoidance.Recommended for ages 18+. Pilots must adhere to the CAA Flight Regulations.

Please note: drone flying is regulated and pilots must adhere to UK Civil Aviation Authority Flight Regulations. As of 22nd July 2017, there will be new rules to better regulate drone use - drones to be registered and users to sit safety tests under new government rules. More information can be found on GOV.UK's website.
A 5-hour battery life makes the Phantom 4 Advanced a complete aerial imaging solution. The built-in DJI GO 4 app can allow you to live stream, edit, and share your aerial videos and photos instantly.
An uprated camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4K/60fps video and Burst Mode stills at 14 fps. The FlightAutonomy system includes 5 vision sensors for 2 directions of obstacle sensing and forward-vision obstacle avoidance. The adoption of titanium alloy and magnesium alloy construction increases the rigidity of the airframe and reduces weight, making the Phantom 4 Advanced even lighter than the Phantom 4.
Main differences between the Phantom 4 Advanced and the Phantom 4 drones
The Phantom 4 Advanced's uprated camera shoots 4K/60 fps video at a bitrate of 100 Mbps and stills at up to 20 megapixels. It can be used with an optional integrated monitor for even more reliable transmission. Operators are empowered with a new suite of Intelligent Flight Modes. The maximum flight speed of the Phantom 4 Advanced is slightly higher than the Phantom 4 when flying in P-mode. The maximum flight time is extended to 30 minutes, the transmission range is extended to 7 km, and the obstacle sensing range is increased from 15 m to 30 m.
Main differences between the Phantom 4 Advanced and the Phantom 4 Pro drones
The Phantom 4 Advanced inherits most of the functions of the Phantom 4 Pro. However, in order to increase affordability, unlike the Phantom 4 Pro the Phantom 4 Advanced does not have rear vision sensors or 2 infrared sensors in its FlightAutonomy system. Also, its remote controller does not support the 5.8 GHz frequency band and Tapfly Backward has been removed.
Intelligent Flight Modes:
Draw is a brand new technology for waypoint control. Simply draw a route on screen and the Phantom 4 Advanced 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 2 Draw modes that can be used in different scenarios.
The Phantom 4 Advanced 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 Advanced 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. Pilots can either follow behind or in front of a subject; fly alongside a subject; or keep the camera trained on a subject whilst the aircraft flies anywhere.
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 Advanced or tilt the gimbal as required without changing the direction of flight. In total, there are now 3 TapFly modes: TapFly Forward; TapFly Backward; and TapFly Free.
Return to Home
In its upgraded Return to Home mode, the Phantom 4 Advanced 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 Advanced is also able to adjust its flight path to avoid obstacles it has seen during its flight. At take-off, the Phantom 4 Advanced 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.
Using Gesture Mode, selfies can be captured easily using a few gestures without the remote controller. Advanced computer vision technology allows the Phantom 4 Advanced 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 centre of the frame. When ready for a photo, the subject holds their arms out to signal the aircraft. A 3 second countdown will begin, making time to strike a pose, allowing moments to be captured without the remote control.
