DJI launched Phantom 4 drone which comes equipped with bunch of high end features. Phantom 4 sports a ‘Obstacle Sensing System” that uses two front-facing sensors that detect anything that comes in the drone’s path.

The drone comes with a 4K camera and a 1/2.3-inch sensor and they can record 4K at 30fps and Full HD 1080p at 120fps for slow motion. A new ActiveTrack feature lets you track a subject automatically or you can re-select a subject to frame a different shot. A Smart Return home system allows you to call your drone back to you after using it. With the TapFly feature, you can simply double tap on a point on screen and the Phantom 4 will fly there without bumping into any obstacles. The Phantom 4 gets a new “speed mode” that offers a top speed of 45 miles per hour which is about 10 mph up from the Phantom 3.
