Now when the DJI Phantom 5 hopefully is pretty close to it’s release, I thought it would be fun to make a list of what we can expect from the upcoming drone. Keep in mind that this is not confirmed in any way by DJI and it’s just a list of what I find likely to appear on the Phantom 5. Feel free to add/remove features and discuss the probability of them! Here is my list:

Very likely to appear:
• Improved Flight Time, probably extended 33-35 minutes.
• Improved/larger sensor in the camera for better lowlight performance.
• Improved side obsticale-avoidence, it may use the sensors found in the front and back of the existing P4P on the sides. And make them available in normal P mode.
• Lightbridge 2 for better range and more stable video feed.
• Upgraded motors for better efficiency and speed. May be raised a bit higher to avoid props in fromt of the camera when going really fast.

Possible feutures:
• Improved Active Track, faster so it can track fast moving objects.
• All models of the P5 may include a screen wich is a bit bigger than the one on the P4 P+/A+
• Integrated battery heater to make he P5 fly in cold weather.
• Slight/complete water resistance

What do you think?

I want invisibility mode and stealth flight.

It would be nice to see much longer flight times... Ha

Oh by the way, Tilt the camera slightly down, to avoid seeing the props. ;-)

I would like that the 150 meters rule  in built up areas was removed  :-)
More seriously, I am into video, so for me the most important thing would be to increase the bitrate.
Also I would really like a narrower lens, 35mm would be great, 50mm even better

It would be best to have two versions, one is a super wide and the other is like 35mm. Ideally a modular system user can change the camera as needed.

What makes me smile about this. We don't even know if the Phantom line will continue.
But should she continue to survive, the next new options should be interesting.

I agree, camera shouldn't see the props.

That list is just minor improvements to the P4 to give a P4 II, the P5 wont arrive until there is some real new technology to be released, you need to be more imaginative with your desires:

  • All round LIDAR based obstacle avoidance, active tracking, and autonomous navigation around obstacles.
  • Short range inter-vehicular communications so that multiple drones, and other aircraft, can negotiate safe flight plans for collision avoidance.
  • Autonomous flight using the new drone air corridors for Beyond VLOS point to point journeys.
  • Autonomous battery recharging.  (Lands itself on drone recharging pads to recharge itself before continuing its flight plan.)
  • Retractable camera to allow short landing gear (more portable) and also allow the camera to drop low enough for the propellers to always be out of view.
  • Multi-view FPV so that you can see all around when flying FPV, not just the front view we have with the P4.
  • 3D FPV so that we can judge distances to obstacles accurately. (the obstacle avoidance already has 3D cameras and the goggles provide the ideal way to view it.)

Like I already suggested, props can be avoided, by tilting the camera down a few degrees.

Would you rather have longer landing skids and a heftier gimbal?

  Unless the 5 is foldable, and more travel friendly, I wouldn't look for one in the near future. Seems like DJI is now concentrated on this area.

That's just a wish list rather than a list of what you can expect.
There has been a credible leak late last year so we already know what we can expect and only one of your wish list items is on it.

It's all over the net.  It's been discussed on this forum.
Anyone wanting to find it can easily.

Yes, I know, but the OP may not...


Anyway, it doesn't interest me. I am already overbooked for time...
Beween, my other interests and winter being here, it's basically just life in the fast lane.

Though it does look nice.

I like the fold up skids, on the other version.
