About DJI Phantom 4 - General Info
The Phantom 4 is the fourth generation of DJI’s celebrated consumer drone. The Phantom 4 raises the bar for technology, performance, and simplicity, insuring that DJI continues to be the leader in consumer aerial drones.
The DJI Phantom 4 is a small quadcopter that measures about two feet from wing-to-wing and weighs 3 lbs. A 5,350 mAh (milliAmpere-hour) Intelligent Flight PH4 battery powers the aircraft’s electronics, four motors, and camera. The Phantom 4 has a non-detachable camera that puts out 12+ MP (MegaPixel) photos and 4K UHD (Ultra High-Definition) video. The Phantom 4 flies up to 45 MPH and as long as 28 min. The Phantom 4 camera shoots 1080p in slow-motion 120fps (frames per second).
You can learn more about the Phantom 4 specs at our dedicated spec page. Here is a short summary of the Phantom 4's key specs:
- Takeoff Weight: 3 lbs. (≈1,300 g)
- Max Speed: 45 MPH (≈20 m/s)
- Max Flight Time: 28 min.
- Max Video Res: UHD (4096x2160p)
- Max Photo Res: 12 MP

The Phantom 4 also uses advanced satellite navigation and hi-def live streaming. The US Global Positioning System (GPS) and Russian GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS) can geo-locate the Phantom 4 anywhere on the globe. Even better: DJI’s integrated “Lightbridge” system allows the aircraft to live-stream HD video to a user from over a mile away.

DJI introduces three key features on the Phantom 4:
With TapFly, user taps on a point on-screen and the aircraft moves toward that destination, automatically avoiding any obstacles in its path. Multiple sensors let the Phantom 4 “see.” ActiveTrack is just as simple: A user taps on a subject on-screen and the aircraft follows that subject, even if the subject moves. Lastly, Sport Mode unleashes the aircraft’s full power, allowing to reach its 45 MPH top speed--but consumes more power. Find out more about the Phantom 4's new features at our FAQ page.
