DJI had actually already gently buried the popular Phantom 4 Pro: it had not been available for purchase since November 2018 - according to DJI due to a supply bottleneck of important parts by a supplier. However, due to the long pause, it was actually assumed that DJI had simply ended the Phantom series.
But now DJI has declared the delivery crisis to be over, and in fact Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is now available online again in the DJI Store, at least in the USA. Originally, the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 was released in May 2018 as a rather small update, which differed from the previous model only 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. Also the propulsion improved: due to new propellers and FOC ESCs the V2.00 could fly more aerodynamically and 60% quieter.
A special highlight for the (semi-)professional user remains the camera of the P4P V2.0, which uses a 1" CMOS 20 megapixel sensor (the Phantom 4 had only a 1/2.3" sensor) and is the only DJI model that can record 4K at 60 fps with 100 Mbit/s and in D-Log (the new Mavic 2 Pro can only record 4K at 30 fps) - that&s why it was missed by many drone filmmakers. Another feature missing from the new Mavic drones is the Phantom&s landing gear, which allows it to land on rough ground without fear of damage.
In this country the Phantom 4 Pro V2.00 was listed at the price of 1.699 Euro, but is not yet available again - but we hope that DJI will start selling it again soon.
What does the future hold? DJI fills a big gap in its product portfolio with the re-introduction of the Phantom 4 Pro V2.00, but the demand for a Phantom 5 (equipped with an interchangeable lens, for example) will probably become louder again. Rumour has it that DJI stopped developing it about a year ago - why was not clear.
