DJI has officially announced the Phantom Pro V2.0 and you might be wondering: what has changed this time around?
In truth, the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is a bit more of the same thing, with a few tweaks.
Just like its predecessors, the Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Advanced, the V2.0 sports a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor that shoots in 4K.
Its Flight Autonomy system includes 5-directional obstacle sensing and 4-directional obstacle avoidance with a 100 feet sensing range.
What’s new is that the drone now features an OcuSync HD transmission system which allows it to connect to the DJI Goggles wirelessly.
The propellers of the two models are cross-compatible, though the V2.0 sports more aerodynamic ones, which also happen to be up to 60% less noisy. The flight time and maximum speed have stayed the same for both.
While other accessories like batteries, chargers and ND filters are compatible with both models, the same cannot be said about the remote controller of the V2.0. Its predecessor, the Phantom 4 Pro, uses a different system, the LightBridge one.
DJI is also selling a Phantom 4 Pro+ V2.0 model for $1,799, which includes all P4P V2.0 accessories, but comes with a 5.5-inch monitor built into the remote controller.
With all this in mind, if you already own a Phantom 4 Pro drone, there is no good reason to upgrade, though the silent props are a nice touch.
