Shenzhen we have a problem! Currently, professional videographers, drone mappers and serious hobbyist pilots cannot buy a new DJI Phantom 4 Pro. DJI has stopped the production and discontinued the Phantom series. See their website and listen to Romeo Durscher. At the same time, the Chinese drone maker also informed us that all new drones over 250 grams from January 2020 onwards will have ADS-B receiving capability built-in (great news!), however, this implies that we are almost certainly not going to see any new drones from DJI at all this year. This puts many drone pilots in a tough situation. May we, therefore, suggest to DJI to start up the production of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro again to carry us through to the next year.

Please vote in our poll below if you support this and let us know in the comments below how not being able to buy a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone is affecting your business or hobby right now. Thank you.

DJI Phantom 4 Pro production should be restarted

DJI has told us twice that the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is no longer in production. It was once said by DJI’s Romeo Durscher during an interview. And, of course, DJI says so on their website in a pop window that appears when you try and buy one. The Chinese drone maker tells you at that point that the “Phantom 4 Pro is no longer in production,” and steers you towards their best-selling DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

With no new DJI drones on the horizon, may we kindly suggest that DJI restarts the production of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0?

Please vote below, if you are in favor of this temporary solution to carry us over until DJI releases a DJI Phantom 5 or a DJI Mavic 2 Pro with a global shutter and improved video footage in 2020.
