So the 4K is essentially a P3Pro with no Lightbridge and no Glonass and SD 480p FPV?

Can I also ask.. how does it achieve 25min flight times if it weighs the same as the PRO and the ADV?
And is the 4K camera interchangeable with the Pro/Adv?

In practice flight time on the P3A/P is more like 15-17 mins.

Can I also ask ...

So on the Pro you have Glonass and GPS and with the 4K you only have one source to find your locations.
Was there conflicts between the two? Does the wi-fi draw less power on the 4K then lightbridge on the Pro?

It's simply going with the WIND.  the tail wind speed adds to your flight speed, be careful coming back, the wind speed subtracts, in other words if your Phantom can only fly at  35mph and the wind is 40 mph, you will be going further away at a rate of 5 mph. BYE BYE.... (Better to land it and retrieve it by hand).

When they announced the P3 4K I was worried I had "last years model" but the P3P longer range, 720P FPV, a 10Mbps bit rate and Glonass  justifies the price difference.  I also question the longer flight range on a quad that is the same weight and uses the same battery.

I couldn't figure that out either. I understand the Standard having no VPS module and therefore extra flight times.

If it isn't the weight.. then...
Could Lightbridge chew up that much power compared to wifi??
Could the 4K have newer propulsion system?
Or maybe its just a misprint...

there is a slight difference in the 4K ECS compare to p3p which adds us couple minutes  in the air.

Are you able to disclose this?
And what motors are they using to achieve this?
An extra 2 minutes for something that weighs the same as the Adv/Pro is remarkable.

DJI that they said that the difference between the P3A and P3P only camera 4K and HD
and that's just a scam for the difference in price from $ 250 .
I do not understand why the charger from P3A 57W ?
I do not understand why the charger Video Downlink P3P 10MB ,P3A 2MB ?
This should be the same, or at least less than half with P3A and the charger does not make sense to distinguish.
What many did not know when shopping because the traders where
I bought my P3A told to buy a bass that because in my country still has full HD and more than enough.
Suddenly appeared some differences are very great for me and if I had known about it earlier I would have bought a P3P.

Just an observation - the order of the Phantom in the photo at the top do not match the order of the Phantom in the column.  For example, the Phantom Pro & advanced are on the left in the photo; the information for them is listed in the middle column.

Why are they using the gold stripes on the 4K? Gold is the P3P's signiture color.Is this going to be the new pro? Is DJI being forced to do away with lightbridge?Is DJI trying to widen the gap between the P3P/P3A  and the Inspire?
