DJI’s new Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is built with new ESCs, low-noise propellers, OcuSync and a redesigned controller, but the aircraft looks nearly identical to the original Phantom 4 Pro that was released back in November 2016. The newer Phantom is designed to be more of an internal upgrade, so to see just how much of a difference the new features make, here is a We Talk UAV Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 test video:

Sound test

The new Phantom 4 Pro V2.0’s propellers and ESC combo is supposed to reduce noise levels up to 4dB, so DJI’s claim was tested at a park with a sound meter. The new propellers ranged from 73-75dB, while the older propellers on the new Phantom ranged from 77-79dB. The difference may be difficult to tell in the video, but DJI’s noise reduction claim proved to be true when it was tested.

Flight test with new propellers

To test how efficient the new low-noise propellers are in terms of flight performance, a stop watch was used to see how long the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 hovered until the battery dropped to 10%. Even though a drone hovering test eats up more battery than flying at a paced speed, the hover test was conducted because of consistency. When the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 with the new propellers reached 10%, the timer clocked its flight time at 26 minutes and 46 seconds. When the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 was equipped with the older propellers, the flight time only reached 25 minutes and 26 seconds at 10% battery. The new low-noise propellers, which can be separately purchased and used on the original Phantom 4 Pro or Advanced, proved to increase the drone’s flight efficiency.
