Features we HATE about each of our DJI drones

Phantom 3 Professional

The iconic Phantom 3 Professional was a major improvement to the older Phantom models, but it still has some cons. The lack of obstacle avoidance sensors can be problematic, especially for new users learning how to fly. The camera can shoot up to 4K, but ND filters were a must since the camera had a fixed aperture. Also, the loose wires and overall gimbal design was prone to damage.

Phantom 4 Pro

DJI released the Phantom 4 Pro as a drone with 360 obstacle avoidance; however, the side sensors only worked in Beginner and Tripod Mode. Even though most users can live without side sensors, it would have been nice if DJI made the side sensors work in real time like the front and rear sensors. The only other problem with the Phantom 4 Pro, and every DJI product, is that the company’s customer service needs improvement.

Phantom 4 Pro 2.0

DJI’s newest quadcopter is like the Mavic Pro Platinum to the Mavic Pro; it was designed as a minor upgrade. Even though the Phantom 5 is expected to release sometime later this year, DJI could have made the Phantom 4 Pro 2.0 with a new, foldable design to cater to the needs of travel videographers. Internal ND filters could have been implemented as a game changer, but the camera is still the same as the original Phantom 4 Pro. Even though the flight time is improved, We Talk UAV would like to see more accurate flight times. DJI drones may be tested in a controlled environment to maximize efficiency, but We Talk UAV would like to see a true 30-minute flight.

Inspire 2

The Inspire 2 was made for professionals, but its size made it inconvenient for everyday flights. In order to shoot in certain formats, DJI made it so pilots were required to purchase extra memory or CINESSD. The extra memory requirements to make those shooting formats compatible was seen as a hassle.
