Design and battery life
The DJI Phantom 4 comes with the dimensions of 15 x 8.7 x 12.8 inches and the weight of 8.8 pounds. It comes with a powerful gimbal stabilized 12 MP camera designed for the sky and can capture a 4k ultra HD video. Two cameras are facing downward. It is designed using a magnesium unibody and streamline shell which helps in reducing the weight of the quadcopter while keeping stiffness at a maximum to minimum vibration. It has a thinner, more aerodynamic body and glossy plastic frame. It also has a grey plastic at the belly. It comes with four propellers which are set higher from the body and the landing gear which is a bit wider.

The quadcopter comes with a vision position system which provides navigation when GPS is not available and it is close to the ground. It also comes with one lithium polymer battery which has the capacity of 5350 mAh, 81.3 Wh and has the maximum charging power of about 100W. The capacity of the battery gives you the opportunity to enjoy the flight time of about 28 minutes. There is also an increase in the size of the battery. The battery can be recharged within an hour.
