Former DJI employee Eric Cheng joins me to discuss the newest aircraft to hit the drone market — the Phantom 4 from DJI. Sporting new features like collision avoidance, longer battery life and object tracking – is this new drone the new standard by which all others will be judged? Find out in this episode of TWiP Talks.

Eric and I discuss the improvements on this drone over its predecessor, the Phantom 3. What does adding so-called “machine intelligence” and “machine learning” bring the the drone world? Also, do the improvements over the P3 warrant a purchase of this new flying camera? Or should you wait for the next one.
