DJI Phantom 4 Pro vs DJI Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian

DJI Phantom 4 Pro vs Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian

Time and time again DJI unveils new versions of drones, and often the new versions have very small adjustments. The latest two versions of such an upgrade? The DJI Mavic Pro Platinum and the DJI Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian. The Obsidian model of the well-loved Phantom 4 Pro is perhaps more complexing, because the changes appear to be purely cosmetic in nature. The DJI Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian is new to the DJI fleet, albeit with small adjustments from its Phantom 4 Pro predecessor. The differences boil down to two very simple things: color, and a new gimbal cover. 


New Color

DJI Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian

The sleek dark color of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian is appealing to many drone lovers. It's charcoal hue is easier to spot than the standard white of the Phantom 4 Pro. The Obsidian model flies through air like a jet, an opaque aircraft soaring above. Given that the price for these two drones is identical, it appears that choosing one over the other is chiefly based on personal preference.


Updated Gimbal Cover

The only physical difference between these two drones outside of their appearance is the gimbal cover. DJI crafted a gimbal cover that is new and improved -- the Obsidian version is electroplated, made with magnesium and anti-fingerprint coated to ensure a long-lasting sheen.

In the end, which drone you choose depends on how much you appreciate the matte-black tone of the P4Pro Obsidian. If you intend on some night flights, perhaps the white color is best to make the aircraft more visible. Conversely, if an upgraded gimbal cover at no extra charge enchants you, the P4Pro Obsidian is likely the best option for you.
