DJI had actually already given the popular Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 a soft burial: it had not been available since November 2018 - according to DJI due to a supply bottleneck of important parts by a supplier. However, due to the long break, it was actually assumed that DJI had simply ended the Phantom series. In January, however, DJI declared the over 1-year delivery crisis to be over and the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 (P4P V2.0) was again available online in the DJI Store in the USA.

Now it is finally available online again in this country - at a price of 1.699 Euro in a kit with the standard remote control or 1.999 Euro with a remote control with integrated 1.000 nits bright 5.5" FullHD display, which makes the use of a smartphone for control superfluous.
Originally, the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 came on the market in May 2018 as a rather small update, which only differed from the previous model in a few features. The biggest innovation was the new OcuSync radio transmission system, which is able to send the pictures from the flight live directly to DJI&s Goggles VR Headset and automatically changes the frequency bands to improve the transmission. The propulsion system was also improved: new propellers and FOC ESCs made the V2.00 fly more aerodynamically and up to 60% quieter.

What are the advantages of the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 over the newer Mavic 2 Pro?
It&s still the only DJI consumer model that can record 4K at 60 fps at 100 Mbps and in D-Log - which is exactly why it was so missed by many drone filmers. Another feature missing from the new Mavic drones is the Phantom&s landing gear, which allows it to land more safely on rough terrain, and the camera&s mechanical shutter. However, the P4P V2.0 is also 200 Euro more expensive than the Mavic 2 Pro.
