DJI Phantom 4 Pro features a similar design as the standard model. It is essentially a quadcopter with four propeller blades each attached to a brushless motor. You actually get eight propeller blades in the box leaving four spare blades.
The camera is attached to the bottom of the drone via a 3-axis gimbal. The camera can pitch 30 degrees up and 90 degrees down from the rest position as well as roll and yaw.
DJI Phantom 4 Pro comes with a remote that offers an option of a built-in 5.5-inch full HD monitor. The display is brighter than your average smartphone display, which could result in a better experience. You can also buy the drone with a remote without the built-in display. You will then have to attach your smartphone or tablet to the controller.
DJI Phantom 4 Pro now has more sensors for improved obstacle avoidance. While the Phantom 4 offers two high-resolution stereo vision sensors in the front, the Pro model adds another two to the back for better obstacle sensing.
You also get a vision sensor on the bottom and infrared sensors on the left and right sides. This sensors combine to give you five-directions of obstacle sensing and four-directions of obstacle avoidance.
