Boomerang vs. DJI Phantom 4 Pro + Crash Tests




Boomerang vs. DJI Phantom 4 Pro is a testament to the drone’s resilience. If you take a look at the video by DRONEGEAR, you can see that the quadcopter can take one hell of a hit. These boomerangs are made out of wood, and some are even made for hunting. This is an impressive design by DJI as their drone has once again passed one of many DIY tests. Even though the description on the video clip was described as an “accidental” hit, the boomerang shot definitely tested DJI’s design.

Yes, a piece of that boomerang just broke off against the Phantom 4 Pro.

Crash Test Video Of The P4P

Check out this slightly older video that proves the durability of DJI Phantom 4 Pros since it shows what it takes to actually bring one of these drones down. Also included are numerous tests that portray realistic pilot errors. Trees and leaves are a common enemy to the DJI Phantom, yet the drone was successful in sawing through leaves and recovering. If your propellers somehow end up getting broken or clipped, the Phantom will still stabilize and fly steady to a certain point. Later in the video, water is poured from a height to simulate heavy rain, and not only did the motors prove to be waterproof, but the drone was stable as usual.

P4P MIDAIR Restart

If ever your DJI Phantom 4 Pro turns off high up in the air, then you can potentially still stabilize your drone in midair. This video shows a brave restart of an already broken p4p. Click here to skip to 1:28 to watch the restart. The height of the drone was 302 meters or about 991 feet. It got stable again at 134 meters or about 440 feet. That’s way past the legal limit of 400 feet, but this still shows the possibilities of DJI drones.

What’s The Wind Resistance Of A DJI Phantom 4 Pro?

According to DJI’s website, the Phantom 4 Pro can withstand wind speeds of up to 10 m/s or about 22 mph.

Windy conditions are always something you need to take into consideration before launching a drone. After viewing these videos, you can conclude that these drones are designed to be safe under some extreme conditions, but the constant wind is different than short burst impacts, so take that into consideration before flying your drone.

These videos were not approved by DJI. Even though some tests were unconventional, they still managed to show some realistic conditions.

Don’t worry, have fun, and fly safe!
