Battery & Flight Time
Receiving a beefier 4480 mAH battery, the flight time on this super-glossy white quadcopter is 28 minutes, that is almost half an hour of aerial movie making. Featuring a new Sport mode, the quadcopter is capable of flying at up to 45 miles per hour, letting you capture fast-moving scenes.
With 5 cameras on board, the quadcopter's cameras have a new lens that's composed of 8 separate elements for delivering improved sharpness and handling chromatic aberrations and noise. The Vision Positioning System has been upgraded to having 4 sensors, 2 in the front and 2 at the bottom.
Intelligent Tracking System
DJI Phantom 4 Quadcopter is equipped with a tracking system that is smart enough to detect and recognize human form and movement. By clicking on a moving subject, you can start the tracking system and it will instantly build a 3D image and keep a constant track of that moving subject.
Phantom 4 is equipped with a super-intelligent processor capable of making smart decisions and is designed for obstacle avoidance. That makes it capable of detecting obstacles and the moment it finds one, it won't run into it even if commanded to and will keep on hovering instead, maintaining a safe distance of up to 15 meters.
The quadcopter comes with some awesome and intelligent specs such as Intelligent Flight Modes that include Return to Home, Tap to Fly, Obstacle Avoidance, Point of Interest and Active Tracking features.
