DJI Phantom 4 Stories July 18

Earlier this week, the Phantom 4 Series Intelligent Flight Battery was back in stock in the official DJI online store, and it sold out in a matter of hours. We don’t know how many batteries were available, or for how long they were available. But, according to members of the Drone U community, they sold out very fast. Checking the DJI store right now will show you that the Phantom 4 Series Intelligent Flight Battery is out of stock again. We wrote earlier that the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is rumored to make a temporary comeback around mid-October this year. Could the short-lived availability of the Phantom 4 battery be an early sign of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone going back into production?

Yes, you read that correctly. The latest news is that the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 production is rumored to restart. The iconic quadcopter that is so popular among enthusiasts and professional or commercial drone pilots is expected to become available again mid-October. The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 will only be back for a short few months until an upgraded version of the DJI Mavic 2 will come out late January 2020.

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.
