After its announcement two weeks ago, you are probably wondering what are the main differences between the last two DJI birds. Is it worth buying the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced or should you rather invest in the Pro model? Let's try to find out together or DJI has been able to save money on the advanced version. Here I have briefly summarized the five main differences for you – it's up to you to decide what features your drone should have on arrival. But one thing is certain: ambitious filmmakers should like both models equipped with a 1-inch sensor. Difference 1 | Camera Sensors While the more expensive DJI Phantom 4 Pro offers front and rear obstacle avoidance cameras, the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced is only protected at the front. The cameras have a range of almost 30 m, so the system is very useful, especially if you are a beginner or if you need to take some risks on a fairly technical rush.There is therefore a minor difference which will surely benefit the Advanced version in terms of battery savings. Difference 2 | Infrared SensorsWe return here to safety and flight time. While the DJI Phantom 4 Pro offers infrared side sensors with a range of up to 5m, this security measure is not available on the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced . So we can assume that the flight time is a bit longer, but it's not really measurable since the infrared sensors do not require as much energy as the camera-based obstacle avoidance system. FrequenciesThe drivers who will choose the more affordable Advanced version have an obvious drawback here: the 5.8 Ghz is not available! the frequency 5.8 Ghz is used especially in areas with many interference, where your signal is likely to be parasitized (the range is still less than 2.4 Ghz according to my tests with the Phantom 4 Pro) . In the best case, this leads to a poor transmission of the image, but in the worst case, it could also lead to an interruption of the connection with the radio control and a failsafe trigger. If so, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro will automatically switch to the least used frequency ie 5.8 GHz. The DJI Phantom 4 Advanced does not offer such an option since it only works in the frequency of the most used the 2.4 GHz.This is to put in perspective here and a test of the Advanced version will be necessary because the signal quality is in my opinion the only Achilles heel of Phantom 4 Pro! Difference 4 – WeightReady to steal the DJI Phantom 4 Pro has a weight of 1388g, while the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced weighs "only" 1368g. This difference is really minor since 20g less will not influence flight time. Both models will require you to go through the online registration box in 2018.Difference 5 – Price Of course, the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced will be available at a more affordable price than the Pro version. Regarding the fact that the two prices may vary, it is better to compare the prices among the best dealers of drones.ConclusionDifferent minor differences here in my opinion, keep in mind that these two models are primarily intended for videographers ambitious and semi-professional. I do not recommend them if you're new to a drone … If you are a beginner and ambitious (and stubborn or with a well-filled wallet), the Advanced version should seduce you and allow you to access the best camera on the market in 2017. The more confirmed drivers should rather consider the purchase of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro, more expensive it is true, because offering additional camera sensors at the back and infrared at the sides. These sensors offer additional security and the 5.8 GHz frequency is a useful feature if you fly in places with a lot of interference.
