DJI launches Phantom 4 Pro v2.0
DJI has officially launched the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, which promises a quieter flying experience and an improved transmission system.
While very much still the same drone as the 4 Pro, the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 features a 4 decibel reduction in flying noise, making it 60% quieter, and also features a new 'OcuSync' transmission system for high-res low-latency video transmission.
DJI say the reduction in flying noise is the result of using “new aerodynamic 9455S propellers and FOC ESC drivers” that offer “improved noise control and sinusoidal current”.
The introduction of OcuSync should offer improvements to the Phantom's transmission range and allow for livestreaming video. DJI says users can expect a range of up to 7km, and unlike the Lightbridge transmission system of the Phantom 4 Pro, OcuSync connects with DJI’s FPV racing goggles wirelessly and features high-def, low-latency transmission.
Inside, little else has changed. That means you get the same 4K/60fps camera with a 1-inch 20MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and 14fps stills in Burst Mode; an f/2.8 lens with a 24mm equivalent focal length, a mechanical shutter with a max speed of 1/2000s, and the same 30 minute flight time.
The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is available now from DJI for $2,399.
