I have not had a drone for 2 years nearly, last one was a phantom 4 pro and just looking to see what’s about these days, are there still lots of problems with them ? Or are they all pretty good safe flying machines ? I been look at the pro 4 obsidian model with built in display, I always had my iPad connected to my pro 4 and unsure about the smaller built in screen, what do owners think on here about them

Hi. Thanks for reaching DJI Forum. As far as I know, Phantom 4 Pro is still doing great. Also, if you want to install a third-party application, I recommend you to purchase the Phantom 4 obsidian with no built-in screen. I also suggest searching for the comparison of each drone. If you have further question, please let us know. Thank you.

The plus models are ok but you are very limited in putting 3rd party apps on them. They do have a brighter screen tho.
Some pilots love the p4p + some that have purchased it regret doing so and have bought a standard p4p controller.
The  p4p v2 is suposed to be slightly better than the standard p4p and it also runs a little quieter with new prop designs i believe its about the same price as well.

Oh and welcome back

I recently bought a P4 Pro V2, not the plus. It is a fantastic machine with a great camera.

Still lots of problems?
Yes ... but mostlt with the operators.

The P4 pro has been exceptionally reliable ever since it was launched.

There are one or 2 traits though or has been in the past, i.e. fw updates has caused issues, all is well so far on the latest update, Then there is the issue with a few P4P gimbals where if you turn the craft in sports mode one way the gimbal will do a serious wobble, some folks its 1 side, some its the other, now, i do have a theory on this, and that is that the gimbal guard had been left on on 1 or more occasion, whether they want to admit that or not is a different matter, i am not afraid to admit it, i have done it a deffo 3 times but never flown, always caught it during or just after initialization, i could be totally wrong on my theory as i am the only one thats admitted it. Some say its normall, i say if it is then why does it not do it when turning the other way.......

Dont let that put you off, i love it and will change the camera yaw motor sometime soon, its a damn good craft and the v2.0 is supposed it be better than the original Pro

Frankly I don't see the point of posting a review in German.

I have the P4P+
Although the built in screen is obviously smaller than a tablet.  I love the 'plus' because of the screen brightness.  I can still see it reasonably well in  full sunlight.
