  • Micro SD Card (16GB)
  • Carrying Case

As you can see, the contents of each of the Phantom 4 Series packages are very similar. The only exception between the different packages is an OTG cable is not included on V2.0. This was previously used to connect to the DJI Goggles or update the drone using a computer.

Each of the drones come with the standard Phantom carry case. This foam case is a great way of transporting your Phantom safely.

The Phantom 4 Pro, Pro V2.0 and Advanced are available in the standard and the plus packages. The plus models have a built-in screen on the remote controller removing the need for a smartphone or tablet.


Appearance

DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 Vs Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Advanced – Appearance

The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Advanced share the same iconic and reliable design of the DJI Phantom Series.

The only changes from the Pro to the Pro V2.0 is the change in the colour of the logo back to the original gold and the newly designed 9544S propellers. The propellers are shorter with a curved tip, contributing to the noise reduction on the new version. The propellers are backwards compatible and can be used on the original Pro and Advanced models.

The other key difference with the new Phantom Pro V2.0 is DJI have mentioned they are not intending on releasing a version in the Obsidian matte-grey colouring.


Performance

DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 Vs Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Advanced – Performance

The performance aspects of each of the Phantom Series aircraft has a large degree of crossover. We will discuss the attributes shared by each of the drones, then highlight the areas in which they’re different.

Shared Features

The Phantom 4 Pro, Pro V2.0 and Advanced have a top speed of 45 mph (72 kph) in Sport Mode. Each feature DJI’s FlightAutonomy in different ways including sensor redundancy for added flight safety.

The Phantom Series utilises the DJI GO 4 app, offering precision control over every aspect of flight and settings.

All the drones have access to DJI’s Intelligent Flight Modes, helping pilots capture high-quality video and images with ease. This includes Draw, ActiveTrack, TapFly, Return to Home and Gesture Mode and more.

Transmission System

The new Phantom Pro 4 V2.0 features DJI’s OcuSync transmission system. OcuSync is used with the likes of the Mavic Pro, offering a seamless, wireless connection to the DJI Goggles. This improves the integration for the ultimate FPV viewing experience. The OcuSync automatically connects to either 2.4GHz or 5.8GHz in order to maintain an interference-free connection.

The Phantom 4 Pro and Advanced operate DJI Lightbridge technology rather than OcuSync. Like the V2.0, the Phantom 4 Pro accesses both 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz to achieve the strongest connection. The Advanced can, however, only access 2.4GHz, limiting its ability to switch frequencies if it encounters a poor signal.

Propulsion System

The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 features newly designed 9455S propellers along with FOC ESC drivers. This results in up to a 60% reduction in noise compared to the Phantom 4 Pro. Additionally, a new sinusoidal current improved the stability of the drone during flight.

The Phantom 4 Pro and Advanced use 9450S propellers. The new 9455S propellers can also be used, resulting in a drop in the noise level, however, we’re currently unaware of the expected level for this.

Sensors

The Phantom 4 Pro and Pro V2.0 have five directions of obstacle sensing and four directions of obstacle avoidance. This helps keep the aircraft safe, a huge benefit for new pilots and when flying in confined areas.

The Phantom 4 Advanced doesn’t feature backward and sideward vision sensors like the Pro and Pro V2.0. Although these safety mechanisms can be beneficial, they are only available when flying in Beginner Mode and Tripod Mode. Therefore, won’t be used by the majority of pilots during their standard flights.


Camera

Each of the Phantom 4 Pro, Pro V2.0 and Advanced utilise the same remarkable camera with a 1” CMOS sensor. The camera is capable of 20MP images and up to 4K at 60FPS with a bitrate of 100 Mbps.

A mechanical shutter is available which helps eliminate rolling shutter distortion that can occur with fast-moving images. An aperture of between f2.8-11 gives a wide range of image and video flexibility. There’s also a huge 11.6 stops of dynamic range.


Battery

Each of the Phantom Series drones we’re discussing uses a 5870 mAh Intelligent Flight Battery with an operating temperature of 5° to 40°C (41° to 104°F). A flight time of up to 30 minutes can be achieved with each of the drones.

Like the majority of DJI batteries, intelligent features such as auto discharge and data management are available.

Summary

The Phantom 4 Series has continued to go from strength to strength. The new Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 building on the range, retaining the positive aspect and adding a couple of useful new features. As the Pro and Pro V2.0 are the same price, the latest iteration will likely be a popular choice, as long as a Lightbridge isn’t required. The Advanced also offers a powerful aircraft at a lower price tag without sacrificing many features.

Whichever of the Phantom Series you choose, you won’t be disappointed as the results they’re capable of delivering are exceptional.
