2024 is a busy year for DJI; they upgraded almost all their product ranges. The DJI Mini 4 Pro is an outstanding sub-250g class drone with features ideal for professional and enthusiast use. Despite the many improvements, the fourth generation of the MINI series still can be flown without a license or registration in many regions, making it ideal for those who travel a lot with their drone.
The Mini 4Pro is physically very similar to its predecessor, but this time, it also has two more collision avoidance sensors for omnidirectional obstacle sensing. With folded arms measures 48×94×64 mm and weighs just 249 grams, including the standard battery.
The M4 Pro features DJI’s newest Ocusync 4 transmission system, and it comes with two controller options: the RC-N2, which requires a smartphone, and the RC2, with a built-in FPV screen. It has a range of over twelve miles (20 km) in FCC mode with a clear line of sight or 10 km in CE mode.
With the standard 2590 mAh battery, DJI Mini 4 Pro can fly for up to 34 minutes. This can be further extended with the Intelligent Battery Plus, which increases flight time to about 45 minutes.
The camera on the Mini 4 Pro has been improved in several areas, with the introduction of 4K shooting up to 100fps for slow motion or 1080p with up to 200fps. UHD HDR videos can now be recorded with up to 60fps. Video can be captured in Normal, HLG (HDR), and the flat D-Log M profiles.
