DJI Phantom 4 Pro – The First Videos

2 min read

I have had my DJI Phantom 4 Pro for a few weeks now. I posted an initial review, you can see that here, and my thoughts about it haven’t changed. Most of the time spent with the drone has been learning the features and working on flight control. Although the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is very easy to fly in a safe and controlled manner there is still a skill to master to maneuver it in tight spaces. The main reason I invested in this drone was for the camera and video capability. To create visually appealing videos and photos you need to get the drone into locations and moving in ways that could wreck your investment. Trees, buildings, the ground all can cause problems if not done properly.

I have been generally in wide open areas, away from trees, plenty of room overhead and never sending the drone too far away. DJI marketing says I could send my drone 4 miles away but I would never do that in fear of never seeing it again. Through the learning process and getting familiar with handling the Phantom I did put together my first videos. I found that the slow, smooth panning is best done in Tripod mode. You can go full stick and the drone will maintain a steady, slow speed that works very well.

Here’s my first video a few days after getting the Phantom 4 Pro. It was just after sunrise at a local park/nature area near my home.


Here’s the second one. Not as good as the first but I was mainly working on different flight modes and styles while recording. It was windy and very cold that day so the sky was pretty bland and gray. It was just a test so I posted it anyway.


All in all I am over impressed and very pleased with the DJI Phantom 4 Pro. Once the weather warms up and the colors return I will get out more. All my videos will be posted to my YouTube Channel. Soon it will be thunderstorm season.

End of line.
