Visionary Intelligence, Elevater Imagination - the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced
An uprated camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4K/60 fps video and Burst Mode stills at 14 fps. The FlightAutonomy system includes five vision sensors for 2-directional obstacle sensing and forward-vision obstacle avoidance. The adoption of titanium alloy and magnesium alloy increases the rigidity of the airframe and reduces weight, making the Phantom 4 Advanced even lighter than the Phantom 4.

What's the difference between Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Advanced?
Most of the drone share the same parts, same propulsion system, same battery, same camera, same Remote Controller, the difference is in the obstacle avoidance system.
P4 Pro has Forward Vision System, Backward Vision System and Downward Vision System, built-in dual rear vision sensors and infrared sensing systems for a total of 5-direction of obstacle sensing and 4-direction of obstacle avoidance.P4 Advanced has Forward Vision System, and Downward Vision System, built-in 2-directional obstacle sensing and forward-vision obstacle avoidance.
Camera with 1-Inch 20MP Sensor
The onboard camera has been redesigned to use a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups, it is the first DJI camera to use a mechanical shutter, eliminating rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed. In effect, it is as powerful as many traditional ground cameras. More powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both with a 100Mbps bitrate.
5 Vision Sensors
Equipped with DJI’s FlightAutonomy system made up of five vision sensors, dual-band satellite positioning (GPS and GLONASS), ultrasonic rangefinders, and redundant sensors, the Phantom 4 Advanced can hover precisely in places without GPS and navigate complex environments. The dual forward vision sensors can see as far as 30 m out in front, enable auto brake, and hover or detour in front of obstacles within a 15-meter.
Return to Home
In its Return to Home mode, the Phantom 4 Advanced can automatically choose the best route to return home depending on environmental conditions. It records its route as it flies, allowing it to return along the same route avoiding obstacles if the control signal is disconnected. Based on its altitude at the time of disconnection, the Phantom 4 Advanced is also able to adjust its flight path to avoid obstacles it has seen during the flight. At takeoff, the Phantom 4 Advanced records the scene below and will compare its recording with what it sees as it returns for a more precise landing. It can also detect the ground to see whether there is a suitable spot for landing. If any obstacles are found, or if there is water on the ground, it will alert the pilot and hover at an appropriate height, helping the aircraft land safely.
Using Gesture Mode, selfies can be captured easily using a few gestures. Advanced computer vision technology allows the Phantom 4 Advanced to follow instructions through gestures. To take a picture in Gesture Mode, a person simply lifts their arms when facing the camera. The aircraft will recognize this movement by locking on to them, placing the person in the middle of the frame. When ready for a photo, the person holds their arms out to signal the aircraft. A three second countdown will begin, enough time to strike a pose. Now all these moments can be captured without a remote controller in sight.
The Phantom 4 Advanced is able perform optimally in different situations depending on requirements. There are three main flight modes: Position, Sport and Atti. In P-Mode, TapFly, ActiveTrack, obstacle sensing, and GPS positioning are available. S-Mode adds extra agility and higher speed, reaching 45 mph (72 kph). A-Mode switches off satellite stabilization and holds the Phantom 4 Advanced’s altitude, ideal for experienced pilots looking to capture smoother footage. Tripod Mode, which limits speed to 4 mph (7 kph) provides precision control for fine framing and indoor flying.
The Phantom 4 Advanced features dual compass modules and dual IMUs. Compasses and IMUs are important sensors that ensure stability and reliability during flight. The Phantom 4 Advanced constantly compares the data it receives through both pairs of sensors. This data runs through advanced algorithms, and any inaccurate data is simply discarded without affecting flight.
Professional aerial imaging benefits from longer flight times. The Phantom 4 Advanced has a maximum flight time of 30 minutes, offering more time in the air to capture the perfect shot. The DJI GO 4 app shows battery life and calculates remaining flight time according to distance traveled and more. It will sound alerts when it reaches the minimum battery level required to return home safely. Its advanced battery management system prevents overcharging and over-discharging. When in long term storage, batteries will automatically discharge to maintain optimum longevity.
DJI GO 4
When using the DJI GO 4 app, a large number of intelligent flight modes are available. It also provides access to full manual camera controls, including ISO, aperture, shutter speed, image formats, and more. Any changes in DJI GO 4 will appear almost instantly on screen. Vital flight data and video transmission status are easy to check in app, further enhancing control efficiency and convenience.
