Another day, another DJI drone — maybe even one that famed YouTuber and creator Casey Neistat can control?
The Phantom 4 is the latest and greatest attempt at there being a consumer/pro level drone that has fully autonomous abilities. Two new cameras on the front, two on the bottom, two belly-mounted Ultrasonic sensors, with the main camera — this setup allows for the building of a 3D world in which the drone can recognize and avoid obstacles, including people.
Better yet, there are automation abilities, including sending the Phantom 4 towards areas seen in the distance, or an ActiveTrack system that allows the Phantom 4 to lock-onto a subject and follow them, getting smooth footage along the way. To top it all off, it lasts 28 minutes on a single charge, tops out at 45 mph, shoots stabilized 4K video.
Price? $1,400. But it most likely will be worth every penny and Benjamin.
