In November 2018, DJI that a “parts scarcity” had left the Chinese drone manufacturing firm without the capability to produce its Phantom 4 Pro. By April, the corporation’s entire iconic Phantom lineup had mysteriously vanished from shelves.
However, 14 months after the firm’s flagship drone went out of stock; it’s back on sale this month.
DJI said that the parts scarcity is now over, and the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is now back on sale as of January 6. It is in stock on DJI’s own official store, B&H, BuyDig, and Amazon for $1,729. This is more expensive than the $1,499 it sold initially two years ago.
It makes sense to purchase the considerably quieter, lower-latency 2018 revamp of the late-2016 pro model of this early 2016 drone. Its 1-inch sensor, variable aperture, and 30-minute flight time are still a potent integration, even if the Mavic 2 Pro can fold down and has a couple other tricks up its sleeves. However, after seeing some intriguing new directions for drones at CES along with the Falcon bicopter and Autel’s EVO II spec-beast, not to mention the Skydio 2 autonomy, it’d make sense for would-be drone pros and tech lovers to wait for these babies to hit the market.
