Figured I'd start a "just for fun" thread:

When the Phantom 5 is eventually released, what features would you like to see in it?  What improvements would you like it to have over the Phantom 3's and 4's?
I'm eager to see everyone's responses.

I know they try to restrict the higher rate cameras for the inspire, but I would love if they put a camera like the x5r on the frame. I know nothing about the hardware demands, but that could be really cool.

A name other than Phantom. I think the P4Pro is probably the end of that line. If DJI wants to be really bold then it should have a totally new name and be a totally different concept.
Certainly folding legs, 360 degree camera, an RC more like the Mavic one and quieter props.

Free fall detection mode with activates a self righting function possibly powered but an internal battery which is separate from the removable recharging ones. Maybe this will give you one minute or even 30 seconds of flying time to get the bird down and or trouble shoot a restart.

Free fall detection and self-righting function powered by an internal and separate power source . This could be as simple as an inclusion of a non-recharge li ion battery which gives you 30 seconds of flight time to get the bird down or trouble shoot the problem.

Yes a strobe pop can be seen miles away. Even if the strobe sat on top, the angle between the pilot and the bird at a distance would still be seen. If you were underneath there would be little need for one. Also this might be something which could be seen by piloted aircraft in the area.   It would be a win win.

Thanks for those suggestion. An internal battery sounds good, but I think it will add extra weight and shorten the flight time.

Software that doesn't crash, a gimbal that doesn't get an epileptic fit at unpredictable moments, strobe is a great idea but mustn't interfere with video or photography.  Most of all stable upgrades that don't seem to make things worse!

Well, if there is to be a Phantom 5 then it is fair to assume it will be more expensive, and even more professional than the P4 or P4Pro. So what features are sensible?

1. How about, more offline capabilities in the area of flight planning. I do a lot of flight planning before I even get to the place or even country where I will be flying.
2. An integrated drone finder facility. A system not based on GPS, or requiring a WIFI or telephone link, just a pile sender signal, even a signal only covering a relatively short range would be useful. It is the last one or two hundred meters that is difficult when you are trying to locate a lost ac.
3. Closer integration/cooperation with third party software. DJI must face up to the fact they cannot and will never be capable of supplying everything, so set up a common interface that can be accessed by others where we can log our flights from other Apps, transfer flight plans, or even program our own Apps and get them to interface with the DJI software etc.
4. A true dynamic home-point feature would be great, one that uses the controller as its home-point and updates regularly, that means in seconds not minutes or every 15 meters or so. If contact is lost it could be a “return to last known home”. Features like “follow-home-point” or controlling the ac from a moving platform (like a boat) would be possible.
5. RTH setting ability to return to controller, with a “hand-catch” setting. For example the ac returns to hover two meters or so above the controller then can be slowly brought down manually.
6. The ability to use multiple screens/goggles, people have wives and families that are doomed to watching a black dot in the sky while dad alone has fun. I could imagine a business enterprise doing guided tours where groups of people are each given a pair of goggles and then flown around the local places of interest.
7. What about a true 3D camera setup. So we can all do “Avatar” remakes. Or film with 360 degrees and let your partner watch what they want, whilst you pilot.

N.B. Where I have used gender to refer to pilots or attendants is in no way intended to be discriminating.
